Although we like to vary our routes through France, we always gravitate back to Sarlat and La Lanterne B & B!
All their rooms are set within a Medieval house just above the Cathedral in Rue Montaigne.
All the rooms are - as far as we know - en suite. And all are tastefully and practically decorated by the owner, Terri Bowen, who took over the property some 10-11 years ago with her husband Roy. We have stayed there previously and thus are familiar with its location and the welcome - especially from Frodo and Fibi, two cuddly and friendly Frisson de something-or-others! What we were sad to learn was that Roy had passed away last year after a long and brave fight against prostate cancer. His brother Richard and his wife Debbie have stepped in to help Terri and provide a proper friendly welcome. And in the morning, Richard's breakfasts are legendary!
We wish them well and shall certainly be back in La Lanterne when we can.
NB. Any research will tell visitors that Sarlat is quite hilly - and Rue Montaigne - as the name suggests - is quite steep! Nevertheless we met several residents who were obviously not ready to run any marathons - yet they found the location and access easy and not at all daunting!
Book soon! It is very popular - we were lucky to get a cancellation.More
