My girlfriend and I have just returned from a relaxing week in the picturesque town of Sarlat. It was our first visit to this part of France and apart from the town being one of the most beautiful I have seen, the accommodation just blew us away, exactly how you would imagine a historic building should be, full of character and charm especially with the exposed rafters and beams.
When we arrived we were welcomed by Terri and Roy (the owners) with a few drinks in the courtyard, you couldn't wish to meet a more friendly and helpful couple. Over the entire week they made it feel like we'd never left home and their local knowledge was a great help over the week.
The suite we stayed in was the self catering De Beaumont Suite, which had stunning views, loads of room and so peaceful. Part of the fun was shopping for breakfast in the market square which made us feel like 'locals' after a couple of days. We'll definitely be going back later this year.
Even my initial reluctance to stay in the middle of Sarlat because I had read that parking could be an issue were squashed as we had no trouble during our stay.
Really recommend you try this place as its awesome.
