About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

Our property in located inside the ancient walls of the medieval town of Sarlat-la-Caneda.

Sarlat's history dates back to 840AD. The town remained loyal to the king of France during the 100 year war. After the war ended in the mid 15th century, the town went through another period of prosperity as they were afforded new privileges by the Crown for their support during the war. Many of the buildings that exist today were built in this period.

So today, when you walk through the cobbled streets of Sarlat, you are taken back to a time of renaissance buildings, unspoilt and unmatched in all of France. For this reason, Sarlat has become a tourist Mecca and base from which to explore all that the Dordogne and Vezere Valley have to offer

The house consists of 3 levels. On the Ground Floor there is a Lounge Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, Toilet and Store Room. There are 2 entrances, one to the Courtyard and out the gate onto Bvd Henri Arlet where you can park your car and the other takes you out onto the car-less lane ways into the medieval town centre.

The 1st Floor consists of 3 bedrooms each with a double bed. One of these rooms also has a permanent single bed and a fold up bed is also available to setup in the other large bedroom. There is also a separate toilet and bathroom with shower only.

On the 2nd Floor there are 2 bedrooms each with a double bed and also a bathroom with toilet and a combined bath/shower

About The Owner

Adele and myself dining with friends at the Le Presidal restaurant (one of 2 local restaurants that has received a Michelin Star) located just around the corner from us in the medieval centre of Sarlat-La-Caneda.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Sarlat-la-Canéda

We chose to buy here because it is a great base to explore the town of Sarlat and the Dordogne region. Sarlat is a large enough town to offer a variety of restaurants, great shopping and is close to many of the attractions on offer in the Perigord Noir.

What makes this house unique

Wander down to one of the local bakery shops to pickup your fresh bread / pastries for breakfast. At night, sit in the court yard and relax with on eof the fine wines of the region or wander into town to sit at one of the many restaurants that are found not only in the town square but hidden away through-out the small alley ways within the walled town.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sarlat is a wonderful little village for savouring what rustic France has to offer. Residence Reygate, situated right in the village, is just 150m from where Sarlat's market days are held - so location is just brilliant. The residence itself is spacious but the fact that it had all mod cons made us quickly forget the previous months travel living out of a suitcase. We will return some time soon to spend another week there. Recommended to anyone wanting to visit the Dordogne region. Transcript from Trip Advisor Review

Great location in medieval center

  • 5 of 5

Lovely accommodations and everything was arranged for the five of us. We needed the heaters in the main salon and bedrooms, and made a fire the cold nights. Will hope to return.

Wonderful house in Sarlat

  • 5 of 5

We were amazed by what a wonderful experience and value this rental was. The house was very large, with five bedrooms, and accommodated all of us quite comfortably. There is a lovely outdoor patio and a living room with a wood burning stove that are great for spending time in and relaxing. And the location is amazing -- right down the street from the central square of Sarlat, which is only 2-3 mins away, yet quiet and private. The house was spotlessly clean and the host friendly and communicative. Highly recommended!

This is a fabulous place to stay. Big, comfortable and just steps from the center of beautiful Sarlat. If you are going to be in this area, this home is a MUST stay! We could not possibly have found better lodging for twice the price.

Wonderful Old Home in the Old Town

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as described online. It is a big three story house in the old town with a big terrace, 5 bedrooms and 2.5 baths along with a washer and dryer, a small but fully equipped kitchen, a dining room and living room. The property was clean, the location fantastic, right in old town. I would definitely recommend this property to everyone, it was a joy to stay there for 5 nights and would have stayed longer if it had been available. The town was wonderful but if you want to visit the caves, the river, other villages, etc. you may want to rent a car. Free parking nearby the house. It was easy to find, there were instructions on how to operate everything in the house. The owner, though in another country, was very attentive via email.

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful residence! If you are looking for a real home with everything you need and all virtually brand new fittings - you must put this one on your list. The owners are wonderful and very easy to deal with. You are in the town amongst it all - you almost feel French!

So spacious - a large group is very comfortable. My highest recommendation.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week staying at Residence Reygate in Sarlat. The house has a wonderful ambience and all the amenities required to enjoy as a base for exploring the beautiful Dordogne region. Being fully self-contained, you can sample the wonderful food and wine of the region from the comforts of the residence.
