“Arriving in the Jardin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

My spouse and I found our way to the Le Jardin Sarlat in the early evening after an overwhelming week in Paris. We walked through an enchanted garden to the door, rang the bell and were received. Indeed, David and Wendy received us with such warmth and kindness, that it was if we’d found our way home.
They are masters of the art of hospitality, balancing attentiveness with a companionable stillness. They know intuitively how to hold space and welcome one into it. Wendy showed us about gently and efficiently, familiarizing us with the house - the breakfast table (where we were to enjoy many breakfasts) the refrigerator full of good wines, beer and soda situated in a very comfortable sitting room, the computer with wifi (no need to worry about communications) – and then she settled us in, again just as if we’d just come home.
The garden rather unfolds itself as one settles down. Within the silence of our comfortable room, we became aware of the birds, the magnolia tree in blossom outside our window, the graceful roofs of Sarlat just beyond the tree tops. We found a little water kettle, various kinds of tea, sugar and a bottle of fresh milk all laid out for us.
Everything seemed to say, “Relax. You made it.”
The next morning we had breakfast with fellow travelers who, like ourselves, were grateful for the good fortune of having found themselves together in such a good place. In addition to the excellent continental breakfast with fresh fruit, cool cheeses, daily baguettes, croissants, granola, yogurt, thinly sliced meats, generous fresh pressed coffee, they prepared a hot breakfast item - not to be missed even though one is well set with the abundant fare as it is.
I hope I’m not going on too long here…
To summarize, our stay was perfect; we reserved three nights, and were able to extend it to five. Wendy and David are the most authentically generous hosts anyone could wish for.
And then, after all this hospitality and peace, there is Sarlat and the whole enchanted Dorgonne valley to explore as well…
And don’t hesitate to ask David and Wendy about towns to visit, or bicycles to rent or… they know the area intimately.
I would recommend this experience to all good travelers.

Room Tip: Enjoy the breakfast and take a bicycle ride. Ask David and Wendy.

We had a wonderful time spending three days with Wendy and David at Le Jardin Sarlat. The GPS lady can't get you there (as David will tell you, they are working on it) because she wants to take you down a walking path, but once you find it you realize you are just a few blocks from the charming medieval town center, yet a world apart, with flowering trees, a delightful yard, and (for those who visit in the summer) a pool to cool off in. The front porch welcomes you in good weather, the parlor lounge in rainy weather, and David and Wendy always make you feel at home. They were willing to share restaurant tips and always welcomed us with friendly interest about our day's adventures. I wholeheartedly recommend Le Jardin Sarlat!

We had a wonderful visit with Wendy, David and David's mother. I hated to leave. The breakfasts were wonderful. I liked that we could walk into town from this location. A previous reviewer mentioned that Wendy and David are two of the ost charming people you are likely to meet and I agree wholeheartedly.

David and Wendy were great hosts and made our stay very memorable. The accommodation felt like home from home, drinks were always available from the honesty bar in lounge. The Town was very close and a short walk away from all the restaurants and bars.

We look forward to another visit

We arrived in Sarlat April 2, 2013 via train from Collioure to Souillac. The owner David (native of Yorkshire) picked us up as we had no vehicle, and we were warmly welcomed by himself, his wife Wendy and eventually by Oscar, the lovely chocolate lab. David and Wendy provided us a buffet breakfast everyday and we had time to unwind between walks and tours by resting, visting in the lounge, in our charming rooms and sometimes just setting up a picnic on the veranda with items from Sarlat's Wednesday food market (the B&B just 5 minutes walk to the old city). Sarlat and the neighboring towns in this region of the Dordogne are not to be missed. I would recommend getting there by car because you may wish to go further as the schedules of the trains or buses are not conducive to touring. David was great though in offering to take us one day to Castelnaud and to Montaignac. Ophorus is one tour company in the region, and it is very good. Le Jardin was an oasis of peace for our family during our busy trip through France.

Wendy and David provide an excellent and varied breakfast, and they are knowledgeable about the nearby sites and are full of valuable tips. We were fortunate to be there when David's 80 y.o. mother was visiting, and we could see a source of his joie de vivre.
There is a walk of 3 minutes into the old town which is an almost endless series of paths, alleys, nooks and crannies. Wendy and David can help direct you.

This was our third visit to Le Jardin du Madame and it is our very favourite B&B in France. It is the benchmark against which we judge all the others and David and Wendy have raised the bar again!!! Beautiful rooms, comfortable lounge, really warm welcome and they do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable. The latest innovation of a cooked breakfast, different every day is the cherry on the cake. Not the easy option of bacon and eggs, oh no, it is beautifully cooked Eggs Benedict, or (my favourite) smoked salmon on hash browns. We always look forward to staying with Wendy and David and we have never been disappointed
