Within 15 minutes of the major sites of the region, Gaurenne is nonetheless a totally peaceful place to return to after visiting the region. In its bucolic setting, this is a three hundred year old farm on 22 idyllic acres of meadows, orchards, gardens and woods. The house is one of three buildings arranged around a courtyard in the traditional manner of French farms and is a fine example of rural Périgordine architecture. The buildings are constructed of the golden limestone which is typical of the region and have steeply pitched 'lauze' roofs made of stone slabs, giving the farm a fairy tale quality. Behind the house is a private saltwater pool that looks out on the meadow. There is a covered terrace for outdoor dining and additional seating under the linden tree and in the orchard.

About the neighborhood
Sarlat is a jewel of town, and one of the first in France to be preserved before it was too late. You will find wonderful architecture, narrow winding streets, many restaurants and outdoor cafes, and music, theatre and a film festival at various points in the year. People come from afar to enjoy the large outdoor market on Saturdays (a smaller one on Wednesdays) that snakes through the medieval streets.

Summer months are filled with local concerts, festivals and flea markets which can lead you to various interesting villages and towns. A listing of these is found at the Office de Tourisme in Sarlat as well as in the house.
