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!

The house is extremely well kitted out with all the things you would need and more! The rooms are tastefully decorated and very clean. The lay out of the house is perfect and our daughter loved sleeping upstairs in her own "princess turret" room whilst we had the spacious downstairs master bedroom and our son had the twin room to himself. The finish and quality of the fittings and fixtures was fantastic and made the stay even more perfect. The garden was a lovely space for the kids to play in and we made good use of the barbecue, "Pierre" the pea-hen was our friendly pet/visitor for the week, the children delighted in spotting her when she ventured into the garden. The pool was FANTASTIC! Deliciously warm and beautifully lit, our youngest learned how to swim without arm bands whilst we were there and the children would have happily spent every waking moment in the pool if they could have! The house itself is very private and hardly overlooked. The area is very quiet yet still very close to Sarlat for access to their supermarkets. It is a beautiful medieval town and well worth a walk around, we walked from the house into Sarlat which took about half an hour. We also did a few day trips to go canoeing and visit caves, etc, and the house is very well placed for accessing all that the area has to offer. We have visited the Dordgone a few times and this is by far the best place we have ever stayed in! We will definitely be back and have recommended it to family and friends. Thank you so much for our magical holiday!
