Nestling in a small valley between the Dordogne and Vézère rivers, Sarlat and its amazingly beautiful ancient roofs will capture your heart at first glance…
Strolling along the paved lanes of the old town revives 1000 years of authentic architecture where, from cobblestones to lauze-roofs (flat-stones), gold typically predominates…..
Guided by their instinct, our ancestors had chosen Périgord: our region thus boasts today the world’s greatest number of prehistoric or natural caves, castles and manor houses, where the typical Sarlat stone casts all year round a golden light. Perigordian gastronomy is among the finest in France: in this haven for truffle, foie gras, cepes, “confits”, pâtés and other delicatessen, Perigordians have successfully maintained a great century-old culinary tradition. This real quintessence of tastes and smells awaits you on Sarlat’s marvelous market, classified as one of the most beautiful in France.
Coming to Sarlat any time of the year, but perhaps more particularly in late autumn, when nature best reveals its personnality, implies wishing to discover a true “art de vivre”. And if, once in your life, you get the chance to admire the old town dressed in snow (a quite seldom event!), you will never forget its magic.
