“Too good to miss !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013

We stayed here at the beginning of June for 5 nights. This wasn't long enough! We chose to stay in Sarlat at Au Pre de l'Arbre as it had some good reviews and looked beautiful, we certainly weren't disappointed. We were met by Nathalie and shown to our chalet 'Les Acacias' which was actually meant for four people although there was just the two of us. Marc built the chalets himself and they are beautiful and extremely well equipped. Our chalet was spacious and had everything you need for a self catering holiday. We also made use of the free wifi. There is a beautiful pool and sunbeds, ideal at the end of a hectic day. The chalets themselves are set in a woodland, and are about a 20 minute or so walk from Sarlat centre. Nathalie and Marc gave us some excellent local information including a short cut to the town (take a torch!). Sarlat itself is a beautiful town, loads of bars and restaurants and shops and stunning buildings.
Overall, we would 100% recommend this accommodation and Sarlat.
We will return!

My wife and I spent six days there and we were really satisfied. The holiday houses are rather new and very well equipped. There is a considerable distance between the houses, so the location is absolutely quiet for everybody. We enjoyed being close to nature. At night we heard the calls of the owls. The swimming pool is a pleasure as well. The temperature is comfortable and the water is clean. During the day it's no problem to walk within half an hour at most to the centre of Sarlat. At night it's better to use the car (no problem to park the car close to the centre). Nathalie and Marc, the owners of the resort, are always friendly and helpful. We would recommend this place to everybody who is looking for a good accomodation in the area.

Though we spent an amazing week in Dordogne, it was not long enough! We basedourselves in Sarlat, an exceptional Perigord medieval village, because it is an ideal place in terms of being close to many of the famous surrounding sites. We stayed at Au Pre de L'Arbre in Sarlat, which is a beautiful forest property with 6 different chalets. These chalets are completely self-catering, independent houses, totally equipped with anything you'd ever need. We loved it as our "home away from home." We rented the house called Les Charmes and couldn't be happier there. It is impeccably clean, wired with high-speed internet and well, we appreciated that there was a dishwasher because while we did relax and lounge around there, this was a time-saving element, as we didn't have to hand wash dirty dishes during our vacation. You also have a washing machine to do your own clothes and really, all the stuff you get in a hotel and more. Our house had two bedrooms and although we were just two people, it could have easily accommodated a family of four. (I think there are 2 houses that sleep 8 people.)

There's a huge pool that overlooks a valley and is surrounded by trees, a perfect and calm place to chill in between your travel excursions. The owners, Marc and Nathalie were lovely and hospitable, and are at your disposal offering travel tips and places of great interest in the area.

One of the best points of staying here is that you have so many magnificent points of interest to choose from - near Au Pre de L'Arbre. So much so, that if you are only there for a short while, you must choose carefully! It will be hard to decide. What's near? The fabulous caves including the Lascaux prehistoric cave drawings, many many villages deemed, "The Most Beautiful in France" (La Roque Gageac, Beyrac, Collonges La Rouge, etc.) as well as the incredible collection of historic monuments, castles, fortresses and more. Additionally this region's world renown wine speaks for itself and if you're a wine buff, you can't go wrong here. If historical monuments are not your thing, you can go
the foodie route. The food of the southwest, with its rich duck dishes, sausages and mouthwatering cassoulet, is to die for and of course, this area is quite known for its foie gras. That said, if you're not about that, you do have other choices!

The village of Sarlat itself, where where Au Pre de L'Arbre is situated, is no shabby choice either. It is steeped in historical awe and beauty and is alive with people, street musicians, local fare, artists and amazing views.

If you do decide to explore this wonderful area of southwest France, please do check out Au Pre de L'Arbre. It is a perfect alternative to staying in a boring hotel if you have kids or even if you don't. You can chat with the owners, learn about the region from insiders and practice your French if you so desire. (They speak English here too, so don't worry if you don't speak French.)
