Sarlat is a beautiful old walled city and we had great expectations of our stay. We booked the apartment after researching the area on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately we were disappointed in our accommodation. The apartment is in a very quaint building on the 3rd floor - however the week we were there it was 32 - 38c and the heat in the apartment was unbearable. The air cooler that was provided was totally in adequate and the ducting was broken so it pumped hot air into the apartment & it could not be used. The agent did provide us with a fan but after tolerating the heat for 5 x days we left 2 x days early. It was starting to make us both unwell due to the unrelenting heat. Sarlat was packed with tourists so if its a quieter experience you are after this is not the place for you!! We would not return after this experience.
