Saint Cirq-Lapopie is undeniably a tourist town, but it has thankfully escaped the feeling of tourist trap (unlike Conques for example). And once the tourists have left for the day, you have this wonderful gem of a town almost to yourself. The Auberge du Sombral, right in the center of town, has the feel of an old French auberge.

Fab hotel. Neat, tidy, trusting. Didn't want a deposit and nor did they want my card. A little bit of old school trust was employed. Right in the heart of SCL at the top of the very steep main street. Great for lunch as is the bakery a couple of doors up. Great vale for money.

During our 3 week travels in France we tried to stay away from from the high tourist spots. Yes, St. Cirq Lapopie is a favorite of tourists but not like some places. We were happy to find Auberge du Sombral. Our room was quiet, clean and had a very recently remodeled bathroom.

Excellent care and preparation of each dish. Very helpful and personable staff. We enjoyed a gorgeous dinner, and then my birthday lunch. We will return. We are staying in St Cirq for a month at a house in the village. This is definitely the best restaurant!

This is how one should view the exceptionally comfortable and homey Auberge du Sombral. It is not a hotel! It is more an inn which serves superior food in an authentic and gorgeous ambience and yes, there are also bedrooms upstairs. Rooms are a bit tight on space but they are comfortable enough with thoroughly modern plumbing. I don't know... More

We stayed for 2 nights while touring the a Dordogne/Lot area. We found the reception please and efficient. The room was comfortable with a very nice shower. Wi-Fi did not extend to the room, but very good in the downstairs sitting room. Well positioned in delightful square. Best bet in Saint Cirq Lapopie.

I wanted to stay in Saint-Cirq-Lapopie based on what I had read about the town. The town is very charming and tiny with many winding narrow roads. Very walkable and you don't need a car to see it all. There were not many choices of inns and this one looked nice. It turned out to be not quite as nice... More

Every year there is a designation ‘most picturesque village in France.’ It was easy to see why St-Cirq Lapopie was selected in 2012-13. We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon and morning wandering through the village and chatting with shop-keepers. Our hotel, Auberge du Sombral, formerly a residence, is perfectly located in the midst of this quaint village. Staff was wonderfully inviting.... More

A charming place to stay right across the Tourist office in the heart of this impossibly adorable village. Our nice sized room felt restful and had windows over hanging with delicious black grapes. Water pressure was fine but no wifi in the room. There is a restaurant sitting area downstairs and a cafe sitting area outside where wifi does work.... More

You cannot be more central to activities in Saint-Cirq-Lapopie than Auberge du Sombral. But, that's only part of what makes it ideal. The welcome that you receive, the quiet, but thorough service provided and the overall ambiance of this small hotel match perfectly with the surroundings. While you're there, take advantage of what might be the best meal in St.... More
