Carlux, France

The village of Carlux is regarded as the medieval capital of the Perigord Noir, and for that reason receives a respectable share of foreign visitors every spring and summer. Located just 14km from the busier destination of Sarlat, Carlux accommodation is often used as a base for visiting this historical town, but also has attractions of its own – many of which make use of the stunning scenery that the Perigord Noir region is famous for.

Things to do in Carlux, France

With Carlux being perched upon a mountainous ridge, some excellent and far-reaching views can be enjoyed from around the village centre. Enjoying these panoramic vistas will likely give you the urge to explore, with a number of designated hiking paths, nature trails and the Dordogne

Close to the village are the ruins of a feudal fortress, which dates back to around the middle of the 13th century. The fortress has been destroyed and rebuilt many times over the centuries, and even in its current somewhat dilapidated state still dominates the village centre. The centre of Carlux is a combination of old stone houses and winding streets, which further emphasise the medieval beauty of the village. The old castle and the Church of Saint Catherine are perhaps the two most popular stop-offs with locals and tourists alike, and are good places to start a walking tour of Carlux.

Carlux plays host to many festivals and events throughout the year, adding further value to a holiday here. The majority of these celebrations occur during July and August, when the weather is almost always hot and sunny and a glass of cold white wine goes down a treat.

Its relatively remote location might not appeal to all, but we loved it. As advertised, the home adjoins the castle wall, in the very center of the hill-top village, next to the Mairie (townhall) and a short distance from the church. There is a bakery and a small grocery store a short walk down the hill. The home is very spacious, well maintained and comfortable. It is tastefully and very completely furnished, combining antique pieces with very comfortable chairs, sofas, and beds. There is a large kitchen with a beautiful fireplace, but also an American-sized refrigerator, dishwasher, and stove. The bathrooms are nice. The terrace allows for outside dining; there one can enjoy the jacuzzi while gazing upon the castle walls and the beautiful countryside. The owner and manager both provided exemplary customer service. Over the past several years, we have stayed at numerous VRBO/Homeaway properties in Europe and elsewhere. We agree that this is our favorite!

Right from making the booking through to our stay, everything was fantastic! Straight forward reservation direct with the owners, easy to follow directions to the gite and a very warm welcome upon arrival. The gite was clean, bright and well laid out with plenty of space for our things. It has everything you need for a very comfortable stay including a fantastic book full of ideas and recommendations for days out and places to visit. Outside there is a wonderful, clean and warm pool for guests to enjoy with stunning views across the valley. The location of the gite is perfect in terms of exploring the local area. Close to the Dordogne river with all its attractions and activities and also really close to Sarlat which is a truly magical place. So much to explore and enough restaurants to be able to eat out every night for a month!! We were so lucky to have discovered this place and hope to be able to return.
