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

We stayed for 3 nights in June and it was fantastic. We chose the courtyard room, which is a duplex room, so not ideal for elderly or disabled guests, but for us it was perfect. The B&B is in the old town centre, so you can literally just walk down the hill and you are in medieval Sarlat, great location.... More

We feel as if we acquired a new family in Sarlat. Our two week stay at La Lanterne from May 29 through June 12 was our home base for exploring the Dordogne. Terri, son Lee, daughter-in-law Amy, and granddaughter Seren made our visit memorable with their warmth, knowledge, caring, and sense of fun. This lovely 15th century home is a... More

Wow, we loved our 5 night stay at the lovely La Lanterne. From the moment we arrived in Sarlat we were escorted to the hotel and parking. Our hosts could not have been kinder or more attentive. Loved the B&B and the Area so much we are dying to return. Enjoyed having evening cocktails in the lovely lounge. We did... More

This was our second time staying at La Lanterne with owner Terry Bowen, her son Lee and his wife Amy. The hospitality can't be beat. We received a warm welcome back and everything was tended to with the utmost care. The breakfast was unbelievable with everything you could wish for and beautifully presented. We loved the honor bar and the... More

Terri, Lee and family were wonderful hosts and made sure that we visited the best restaurants gardens Chateaus and all of the delights that Sarlat and region holds. Perfect position within the town, delicious breakfasts and happy & friendly hospitality also helped to make our stay a highlight of our trip
