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!

A car is a necessity as there is no transit in the village, and you will want to tour the nearby villages of Carennac and Rocamadour. Madame Diane is a gracious host.
