That probably tells you all you need to know about how much we enjoyed our holiday. Le Cottage is spacious and comfortable and well equipped with everything needed for a family holiday. Dena & Patrick are warm and welcoming hosts who clearly take immense pride in their lovely property. The location is quiet and idyllic and yet within easy reach of all the best sights of the Dordogne. Our young family thoroughly enjoyed the immaculate pool and play areas and toys/sports/pool equipment. Many thanks for a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable holiday, we look forward to returning next year.

Its central yet quiet location in the medieval heart of Sarlat is ideal. The apartment is very clean, comfortable, well equipped and tastefully decorated. Emmanuel the owner was prompt, friendly and helpful both during the booking process and on our arrival and departure. He clearly takes pride in ensuring the apartment is well presented and that his guests are well informed about it. His recommendations about local restaurants and things to do and see were also very useful.
