About Paula & Barry Grainger
We arrived from Ireland in 2005 and fell in love with the region and wanted to enrich our lives with a new culture, language and of course take in the local food and wine...
Paula & Barry Grainger purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Paula & Barry Grainger chose Sarlat-la-Caneda Historic Center
We loved this apartment as soon as we saw it's high beamed roof and position looking over the other roofs of Sarlat. We could not wait to experience this property ourselves and we have spent a week or two enjoying the apartment, knowing that we were in the heart of history , a location for film sets and a superb market and ambiance.... We love the area as there are always suprises around the corner and Sarlat is a great base to explore other areas and villages. We love both the fact you can have a quiet relaxing visit wandering through villages and relaxing by or on the river/ lakes or enjoying the summer fetes... or delving into history and art and of course the food and wine and trips to vineyards.... something for every one.
What makes this Apartment unique
So many benefits.... Location,Location,Location.... being in the heart of the medieval a perfect base for visiting the sites knowing that when you return to Le Grenier you are only seconds away from the shops, cafes, restaurants, galleries and tourist office to plan your next visits ...... Le Grenier itself is self contained and set in a 15 century building with original stone spiral staircase taking you to the apartment full of original oak beams and stonework, perfect to whip up some great meals from the fresh produce from the Wednesday and Saturday Markets which are right on your door step.... along with the restaurants and cafes, and in the Summer the street entertainment...

We had an absolutely fantastic time at your lovely appartment. Perfect location.
The appartment couldn't have been nicer. We had everything we could possibly want. We were in the heart of Sarlat. Thank you for the lovely welcome. We definitely hope to return and will recommend it to our friends.
Just Perfect in Sarlat
Both Paula and Barry were the perfect hosts. Friendly, helpful, nothing was a problem. The station pick-up and drop off was a great addition to their service. The apartment was great...metres to the centre of all that Sarlat has to offer, yet quite and cosy and idea to spend a raining day reading and relaxing. I love a loft and this one is exceptional. One of our best stays after being on the road for ten weeks. We will be back next year.
In the middle of everything!
Very private, very central and full of character. We enjoyed a nice quiet week in the garret. The stairs kept us challenging our fitbits. You couldn't ask for more accommodating or friendly hosts! Thanks for everything Paula & Barry!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at le Grenier and Sarlat and hope you had a safe journey back home.. Hopefully one day you will return to explore more of the région. Thank you so much for looking after le Grenier.. Paula et Barry
In the heart of a medieval town.
First I must say that Paula and Barry were the perfect hosts. They met us at the train station so we could follow them in our car to a free parking lot. There are no cars permitted in the heart of the town but it is only a 10 minute walk to the apartment. They helped us with our baggage including going up the 74 step spiral staircase to the apartment. It is well worth the climb as the apartment is charming and full of character. The stairs are a good way to wear off some of the great food and wine you will find in the many restaurants at your doorstep. We would highly recommend this rental.
Great atmospheric location
This is the most perfect location. - right in the centre of town. All the stairs are well worth it. The apartment is attractive, clean and comfortably furnished, also it is well equipped with all that is needed for a holiday. The owners, Paul and Barrie gave us an enthusiastic welcome and carried our heave hold case up the stairs for us ( I am 82). They were also a phone call away if we had a problem which we did not. It will be even better when the expected Wi-Fi is operational. We used the close at hand free service at the information office.
I wanted to stay forever!
I originally booked for 3 weeks but then extended to 5 ... and totally loved my stay in beautiful Le Grenier in the centre of lovely Sarlat. The apartment was just dreamy and had everything I needed. I cooked every day with the local treats I bought at the Wednesday and Saturday markets and enjoyed every pink sunset from that lovely window. Paula and Barry were excellent hosts, collecting me from the train station and carrying my bags up the stairs....even offering to do a little pre-arrival grocery shop! The kitchen was even stocked with a few essentials which was great! I totally enjoyed my stay and would recommend it to anyone. You'll love waking to the church bells and chit chatter of your feathery roof top friends. I'll definitely be back. Thanks Paula and Barry
