We were immediately impressed after being met by David at the pre arranged transfer from the Souillac Rail Station. David drove us on a very scenic route back to "Le Jardin" in Sarlat, and on arrival Wendy met us on the front verandah with a chilled white wine on that hot afternoon. This led to relaxed conversation with our new hosts, and meeting their great Labrador "Oscar". This scene after 5 intensive days in Paris was so welcomed. David can be tested on his knowlege of cave paintings, trogladytes, canoe journeys on the Dordogne River, the characteristics and staus of all the local restaurants, neighbouring villages, and the best ways to persue the travellers particular interests in Sarlat. He will add other information if it comes to hand. Wendy organises an impressive accent on cleanliness and comfort for guests. Breakfast was different every morning in content, and enjoyable on every occasion during our 5 day stay. This establishment certainly attracts some discerning and well researched travellers, who made excellent breakfast company during our stay. Because this home is just a short walk from the heart of Sarlat, we were afforded a very peaceful environment for sleep and relaxation. Sarlat and region will test your camera with such an intense variety of photographic opportunities. To meet David and Wendy, who are so energetic in their B & B business was very refreshing, and enjoyable for this Australian couple in our late 50's. The Red Squirrels in the garden were active during our visit, and new to us!
