Vieux Sarlat was quaint and charming. it really felt as though I had walking onto a painting. Stopping at a cafe and taking the time to people watch is a must. Also, bring your camera!

Type in “Rue de la Republique” in your Sat Nav and you’ll find a relative quiet long street, with free parking spaces and at a max 5 minute walk from the old city centre.
