We were extremely pleased and pleasantly suprised with this accomodation. It was our first trip to the area and we were told that Sarlat was a great place to base ourselves for visiting he surounding villages. Being at a very easy walking distance to the town centre, we didn't even need to hire a car for the first few days as there is plenty to see and do in Sarlat. The town centre is litterally at your door step but with the added convenience of free parking.
The accomodation is very stylishly decorated and the modern kitchen facilities were easy to use. I cooked almost every night for two weeks and felt very comfortable as everything was thought of from modern appliances to garlic crusher.
Marc and Sandrine were very helpful and approchable, always offering great advise whenever we needed it and they never seemed to be bothered by my silly questions. They really made sure we were comfortable, yet independant.
We are already thinking about staying there again next year. I would only suggest that one needs to be comfortable with climbing a slightly steep staircase to the upper level.
Other than that, an absolutely lovely place to stay!
