Bon Encontre is a wonderful Hotel. A reasonable 10-15 min walk downhill to Sarlat a bit steep coming back !! Great onsite parking. A fabulous pool area with plenty of sun loungers. A very tasty and plentiful breakfast. Spotlessly clean. Decent size rooms. But what makes Bon Encontre that extra bit special, is their amazing staff. There is nothing at... More

A great 3* hotel. Wonderful staff who can't do enough for you. Great rooms away from the hubbub of the main town. Great swimming pool. Only comment is that it is not really only 5 minutes walk away from town especially if you are returning to the hotel. You need to be a mountain climber. This didn't bother us as... More

We arrived here at the height of an unseasonal heat wave in early July. The pool was a life saver. The hotel is spotlessly clean and comfortable. The staff were super friendly and accommodating. The down side to this hotel is it is up in the 'suburbs' of Sarlat which means you have quite a walk back up if you... More

We searched trip advisor and came up with this accommodation and we were very glad we did. Up on a hill its a 5 minute walk to town ,though longer and uphill going home ,but you will need to walk off the food and alcohol. ! Comfortable room, warm congenial hosts and a lovely setting.

lovely location overlooking the old town and valley. We were early and our room wasn't ready, but we were able to wait on the terrace and the receptionist brought us a very welcome cup of coffee. In 15 minutes, we were welcomed warmly and shown to our room- there is a ramp around the back of the building to get... More

Like other commentators - the drive to the hotel is tricky, but with good gps it will get you there. The staff is delightful and once there everything in the town is walk-able. Take your time time coming back up the hill.

We stayed two nights and agree with most aspects of the excellent reviews. Found the staff very helpful. It is located on a hill top in a new area. It's an easy walk down to the mediaeval town, but would be a hard walk back up for anyone who has difficulty with steep streets. We are reasonably fit seniors, but... More

can't complain. This was our first hotel in France this trip, we stayed for 2 days. It is just slightly out of the old part of town in a well kept comfortable residential area, a 10-15 minute walk; a bit hard to find (we drove past the sign on the way in and had to backtrack to find it; not...
