Visits close to our rental holiday properties
Sarlat has been ranked as the European town with the highest number of classified monument per Km²!
Sarlat is situated in the centre of the Dordogne department, just north of the Dordogne river. One of the most renowned and visited towns in France, Sarlat is also one of the most attractive. Often called just Sarlat, the town is really twinned with its less famous neighbour and is more correctly called Sarlat la Caneda. We advise every single person who has a holiday trip in Dordogne in our lovely rental properties to visit it.
If you come in one of our rental holiday accommodation, Sarlat is just a few miles away. Every person who stay for vacations in our rental properties should not miss the opportunity to visit the most beautifull city of Dordogne.
Enjoy a walk around the cathedral and in the streets to the north of Sarlat. You will soon become lost in the maze of narrow lanes, with something new to see around every corner. Visit the tourist office when you arrive in the town - they can provide a suggested walking tour around the medieval centre that will pass all the key attractions.
Sarlat is a beautiful, well restored town a few kilometres north from the Dordogne river. Its location and attractions mean it is besieged by tourists all year long.
Saturday is market day in Sarlat. The old town, with fine examples of architecture from both medieval and renaissance times, is a pleasure to visit, especially during the spring and autumn, or early in the morning to avoid the crowd.
