I was just amazed that we were temporarily living in a building with such history. The building was built around 1525 and even with all the mod cons still retains it's original structure and character. It is also very comfortable, romantic and very centrally located. Emmanuel the owner met us on arrival in Sarlat and took us to the apartment. He was incredibly hospitable and talked us through how everything worked. He bought us a nice bottle of red and put it in the apartment for our arrival. I highly recommend this as a place to stay. Thanks Emmanuel for making us feel so welcome!

Basic little place but more than adequate. The people who own it are friendly and helpful although you don't see much of them. Do not go if you do not like cats and dogs as you will get visits from both. We had the place to ourselves for 4 weeks apart from the last night when a family moved in next door. Not sure how peaceful it would be in high season!! Our only gripe is the lack of contact with Homeaway - unless you are prepared to download the app, but we were not! We wanted to ask questions prior to arrival about what was available bedding wise so we knew what to take with us. We never got a response, and ended up taking a lot of stuff we didnt actually need - frustrating! However this was not the fault of the owners, it was Homeaway who carry our their business too remotely in our opinion. This is a lovely part of France with lots to see, beautiful scenery and great weather, even in October!!!
