My husband and I spent a week in Sarlat at La Villa des Consuls in September. Our apartment, la Boetie, had a comfortable queen bed and a sitting room with sofa bed/kitchen/dining area. Outside was a terrace that overlooked the main street below that became pedestrian only on Saturday market days. On the terrace was another table, two lounge chairs, and a working grill that we used twice. The apartment had new appliances including a microwave. We could have paid for parking, but we were able to park on the street nearby without much trouble. We purchased some groceries in a store just down the street and stopped at a large grocery just outside of town for anything extra that we needed.
The owner/manager David was especially helpful with any of our questions and spoke excellent English. He has lived in Sarlat most of his life except when he studied in Bordeaux and abroad. He knew the best restaurants as well as the tourist places to avoid and had ideas about vineyards nearby. Although breakfast was available, we chose to eat on our terrace. Internet in the main office cost a small amount extra but was a fast connection and generally available.
For anyone visiting Sarlat, Lascaux, or any other sites in the area, we recommend this apartment without reservation.
