About the neighborhood
Sarlat is the capital of the so-called Perigord Noir, the crown jewel of the Dordogne region. It is central to all the important sites like caves with prehistoric art - Lascaux is only twenty minutes away - plus the beautiful riverside and hilltop towns of the Dordogne, including its famed 1001 chateaux, outstanding gardens, and all the sporting activities like river canoeing, kayaking, bike and hiking trails, air balloon tours, etc. We are also an easy drive from famed Rocamadour, Padirac cave, and even the famed wine regions of western Bordeaux area, like Saint Emilion.
If you wish just to chill out in this famous Medieval town, we are at 'ground zero' for your stay in historic Sarlat. We have hosted bikers who were quite satisfied with the short distances and pretty trails that lead to nearby sites of beauty and historic interest. Or you can use your car to visit almost all the important tourism sites of the Dordogne. There is also the direct train route to Bordeaux that meanders along the banks of the Dordogne river for a two and one half hour journey to view the beautiful landscape of our region.
