I'm so pleased that Trip Advisor's reviews led me to book this hotel. It was perfect for our requirements. It was in a quiet residential road on the edge of town, and had its own parking area. Quiet and parking space are rare commodities in Sarlat! The hotel was immaculately maintained, and everyone of the staff was charming, welcoming and helpful. We had a spacious superior room with a modern 4-poster bed, ample hanging/shelf space, and a large bathroom. The breakfast buffet was generous and varied. There was plenty of outdoor seating, on the terraces or around the pool, with a choice of east, south and west facing prospects - always some sun or shade, depending on your preference. We really enjoyed the walk to the town centre (10 minutes down, 15 minutes up, as the reception staff rightly described it). Just right for some post-prandial exercise. But if you're not able to cope with that, you'll need to take your car. There are many parking spaces - it's just a matter of finding one free!

Lovely place, very clean, tidy, really helpful staff, super pool. Less than a kilometre walk to Sarlat, it's a bit of a climb but nothing for anyone who's reasonably mobile. Really pleased and would certainly return.

We spent 2 nights in Bon Encontre - on our way back to Belgium after staying in spain for 3 weeks.
Overall we would definitely recommend bon encontre :
Our + :
- Situation is excellent, 800m away from the hectic city-center.
- Rooms very nice
- Staff friendly
- Nice pool and big private parking

Our - :
- Car is necessary for elderly people since walking to the city center ( walking down) is ok, but making it back up......
- No airconditioning in rooms - so quit hot with temperatures above 30°

This is a fantastic placel which with three stars very much undervalues a beautiful hotel. WE actually stayed ten nights and used it as a base. One night in such a place is just not enough. The rooms are excellent and have plenty of space. They are clean and light. As for the climb up the hill-who cares-get fit-or drink more wine. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were very friendly and helpful. Not what you sometimes get in hotel chains in big cities. A wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Room 6 overlooks the valley. This was slightly more expensive than some othe rooms.

A great little hotel positioned on the hill just above Sarlat. It was exceptionally clean and comfortable and the staff could not have been lovelier - nothing was too much trouble. The rim flow pool was fantastic. We stayed in a family room that actually had 4 proper beds in it - not a double and some pull out beds, as other hotels seem to offer. We really enjoyed our stay, and would definitely recommend it to other travellers.

We had a 3 night stay here for my husbands 40th birthday in July. We left our 7 year old at home with grandparents and it was perfect! Yes the hotel is at the top of a steep hill, but we're hardly Mr and Mrs fitness and it took us approximately 15 minutes to get up it (I would however recommend footwear other than flip flops!!) In actual fact, we saw it as a challenge and felt we could eat that extra delicious french morsel due to the regular exercise we were getting!! The hotel was clean, extremely comfortable and the decor in our room (number 5) was very pretty. The breakfast was lovely and the staff very helpful and attentitve. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone wanting a quiet and peaceful retreat, which is in the perfect location to visit and explore (by foot!) all the delights that Sarlat town has to offer. 5 stars!

Room Tip: We had room 5 and it was clean, modern and spacious.

A small, lovely pearl in a beautiful town. We stayed one night with two kids of 6 and 8. We didn't see any other children, and you sort of feel it's the kind of hotel people go to to avoid children... But there were no comments from anyone. The pool was lovely and the room was great.
