La Laterne is all of those things and more. The ivy covered 500 plus year old building is home to Terri, one of the most welcoming and hospitable human beings we have ever come across, along with her son Lee and family who all made us feel welcome without being gushy, also helpful and informative without being intrusive. Terri's local... More

Located in a stunning 500-year-old building just steps from the heart of the action in the medieval village in Sarlat, La Lanterne is a perfect home base from which to venture into the Vézère and Dordogne valleys to visit caves and rock shelters, chateaux and museums, many of them within an easy 30-minute-drive. There are tons of excellent restaurants nearby... More

Just spent 9 fabulous nights at La Lanterne in the heart of Medieval Sarlat. With so much to see and do on the doorstep Terri kept us well informed with her local knowledge and good advice, she could not have been more accommodating. This beautiful B&B has retained all the charm of its surroundings and is a must for anyone... More

Guest house is situated in prime position for anyone wishing to visit Sarlat. Room was very comfortable and the owner Terri could not do enough for us and made us feel very welcome. Would certainly recommend for a short stay.

It is in the most amazing location, it's a historic gem, it's price is excellent especially when considering how clean, unique, and well located it is, and the owners have truly thought of everything to make your stay pleasant (a beautiful breakfast, comfortable lounge, wine you can...

We booked a room in this lovely B&B many months before we actually got there, and Terri gave us wonderful advice and information in the months that followed. After we had dragged our bags from the rail station ( the last bit up the hill was the only difficult part ), we were warmly greeted by Terri who could hear... More

Where do you begin to describe an excellent stay! Wonderful hosts, clean, well appointed bedroom and an incredibly interesting building in the heart of Sarlat. The small, shaded courtyard with its potted plants and climbers, was a welcome relief from the heat of the day.

This wonderful B&B was a perfect base for us. I am a little hesitant to book B&B's due to claustrophobic owners I've encountered at other places; definitely not the case here. Terri, Lee and Amy are there to help whenever you need them but are also such relaxed and lovely hosts with wonderful attention to detail. I was having a... More

We spent 6 nights at La Lanterne in June and found it to be a wonderful base from which to explore the beautiful village of Sarlat and the surrounding region. We had a car and there was never a problem getting a car spot in the public carpark a short walk away. Our room (I should say rooms)....kitchen, lounge room/dining,... More

We loved our stay at La Lanterne! It was just what we needed after 6 days in Paris & Bordeaux. Terri was a wonderful B&B hostess and we miss those breakfasts even now! Terri was wonderful in helping determine our itinerary for the 4 days we spent touring castles and caves in the area & the wonderful dining options in... More
