Photos and Description of this Sarlat-la-Canéda holiday apartment

Light and airy apartment in medieval stone town-house ( 1524 )

Le Cantou is set in a beautiful 16 century stone town-house. Located on the second floor, this apartment offers you the chance to enjoy the area of Sarlat by foot and by car. This beautiful apartment itself is bright and airy with high ceilings. The bedroom is located in a cosy alcove and has a very comfortable double bed, two bedside tables, lamps and a chest of drawers. The living/dining area ' centre piece' is a beautiful stone fireplace. Located in the living area are two armchairs, two foot-stalls and a coffee table. In the dining area there is a table and 4 chairs for the wonderful meals you can cook from market produce. The kitchen is located in another alcove and is equipped with a fridge with an ice box compartment, oven and hob, washing machine and coffee machine. As you leave the apartment you step right into the main square of medieval Sarlat, along with its cobbled streets, little shops, restaurants, superb market and art galleries.

Things to do:: The Dordogne region provides an fascinating array of sites and activities

It houses the most magnificent and interesting sites of the Palaeolithic era in Europe with troglodyte shelters and caves, the most famous being Lascaux , cave paintings of 15,000-year-old galloping horses, reindeer, bison, and ibex. Although the original is now closed Lascaux 2 is equally interesting, also Font de Gaume is worth a visit.

From fairytale Château Milandes, to the flamboyant Hautefort and fortresses like Castlenaud to Bastides, like Domme & Belves, also pretty villages set into the cliff faces – La Roque Gageac and Beynac. also the fabulous gardens of Eyirgnac and Marqueyssac , giving you plenty of sites to see, whether by car, bike, foot , canoe or Balloon you will experience a holiday of memories.

Restaurants, cafes and markets are a speciality..In this region you will find Duck everywhere on the menu. Among the markets which have an array of fresh produce you will find:

Truffles, foie gras, wild mushrooms like cepes, girolles and morels, also walnuts, confits (meats preserved in fat) and fine country meats, chestnuts, strawberries, wines,liquors and brandies…and of course the famous cheeses..

So after your hectic day of sightseeing, relax in the centre of Sarlat, watch the world go by knowing you are only a few minutes walk from your apartment 'Le Cantou'

The Dordogne enjoys a more settled weather pattern than UK or Ireland, although it does have rain enriching the region with green fields in the winter months. It has a varied temperature, starting off cool in the mornings and heating up as the day goes along…layers are the best clothing to bring. In the summer-time the average temperature is around 30 ‘C..

The nearest airport is Bergerac, with airlines Ryan air and Flybe.

The new Brive Airport has flights from London with CityJet. Slightly further away you can get flights into Limoges, Toulouse, Bordeaux and Rodez..

From Calais the car journey is around 10 hours.

There is a train service from Paris to Bordeaux, then change to Sarlat. There is also a service from Paris to Souillac, then a shuttle bus to Sarlat.

In Sarlat there are car hire services such as Europcar, which is in walking distance from Sarlat train station.

Perfectly Enchanting!

  • 5 of 5

We adored staying in this lovely studio apartment located in a medieval tower in the center of Sarlat. It was a perfect location between the cathedral and the main square. A wine cellar, glacier and chocolatier were steps from the front door of the tower. The outside market burst to life every Wednesday and Saturday morning. A nearby bakery provided freshly baked croissants daily. The apartment was very comfortable, spacious and nicely decorated complete with flawless wifi. We loved the ancient masonry, darkbeams, high ceilings and shuttered windows. We felt at home with everything we needed for a delightful stay. Emmanuel was a gracious and attentive host with great restaurant recommendations and even helped us find our way driving to Sarlat in the dark with failed GPS. The free parking is just a short walk away. Every time we returned to our medieval apartment after a day of exploring nearby villages, canoeing on the rivers, cycling on the greenway, and eating wonderful food, we just couldn't believe how beautiful it all was.

Individuell eingerichtete Wohnung im Herzen der Stadt

  • 5 of 5

Diese Wohnung ist absolut empfehlenswert für Stadturlauber, die gerne außergewöhnlich und extravagant wohnen möchten. Sie gehört zu den Highlights unserer vierwöchigen Reise durch das Périgord. Sie liegt in der zweiten Etage eines 500 Jahre alten Hauses im Zentrum der Stadt und ist trotzdem insbesondere in den Nachtstunden absolut ruhig.

Emmanuel war pünktlich am verabredeten Ort, war uns behilflich mit dem Gepäck und - sehr wichtig - einem Tipp für kostenloses Parken in 3 Minuten Entfernung. Er ist absolut unkompliziert, hat uns mit einer Flasche Rotwein empfangen und uns mit allem Nötigen vertraut gemacht. Er hat viele nützliche Informationen zur Orientierung über die Stadt und die Sehenswürdigkeiten des Périgord bereitgelegt. Emmanuel spricht neben Englisch auch etwas Deutsch.

Wenn man die Wohnung über die im ersten Moment vielleicht etwas ungewöhnliche Wendeltreppe erreicht hat, erwartet einen ein großer Wohnraum, von dem Bad, WC und Küche abgehen. Der Schlafraum liegt offen hinter dem Wohnraum und ist über sechs Stufen zu erreichen. Die Einrichtung ist absolut individuell und mit viel Liebe zum Detail gestaltet. Es ist alles vorhanden, was man für einen mehrtägigen Aufenthalt benötigt.

Lovely central apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely apartment in a medieval building in a charming town.

Emmanuel the owner was extremely helpful in showing us the apartment and where to park etc. Our booking communications were excellent and the apartment was just as interesting as the pictures on the website. Sarlat is a fascinating town and everything was close by. We ate out most evenings in the many restaurants. It is also a great base for interesting castles, gardens and Grottes. Canoeing down the Dordogne is also a very pleasant experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would be delighted to return. Many thanks Emmanuel.

Delightful Central Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Sarlat is a most beautiful medieval city and the apartment is at its very centre. It is very attractive and was well equipped for two people with very tasteful furnishings etc.The property would not be suitable for people who have mobility issues as it involves 2 flights up a spiral staircase, but well worth it for those who are mobile.

This property we stayed in was perfect. It was so clean and tidy. Very spacious. Everything we wanted was provided. It was beautiful to just stay in and enjoy our surroundings to relax in between our outings to explore the region. We were very central to everything here. Emmanuel's attention to detail was evident. Great host to communicate with.

Sarlat has been described as 'the jewel in the crown' with its medieval centre restored to its 17th century magnificence with such perfection that it is lit at night by gas lamps and is the set for a myriad of French movies. There are numerous 'plus beaux villages de France' in the area including Beynac. La Roque-Gageac, St-Leon-sur-Vezere, Domme, and Belves and the town markets are some of the finest in France, with many designated as 'marches de France.' .

The natural beauty of the area can be explored on the many well marked hiking and bike trails or by renting kayaks or canoes all along the Dordogne and Vezere rivers. A trip to buy groceries along the country lanes through the forest, over the hills and along the rivers is a treat in itself. With your apartment tucked into a charming medieval alley off the main square you can avail of the superb market, restaurants, cafes and shops.

Other Activities: Canoe/kayak, Ballooning, rock climbing, caving

Le Cantou is set in a medieval town house in the centre of historical Sarlat. Unfortunately there is no parking in the historical centre, but there is free parking 200 metres away. The apartment is on the second floor of a stone spiral staircase, and has a lovely view of the courtyard below and the roof tops above. The apartment has 3 huge windows and a fan so plenty of ventilation. The Tourist office is 2 minutes walk away from the apartment..where you can browse through the delights that the region has to offer. During the summer months, Sarlat is bustling with festivals of music, theatre and the street theatre, and of course not forgetting the Film Festival in November, the truffle festival in january, the duck festival in february ......
