Two american couples just returned from our wonderful stay at this charming and comfortable home/property in late Octoer, 2013. It was an excellent value choice and far better than we imagined. Booking process was easy, with friendly communication with owner. The house is even more beautiful than it appears in the photos with good linens, comfortable and lovely furniture, a great outdoor covered patio with furniture, a pool, birds singing in the many trees in the large yard, a very private feeling, and only minutes walking time to the center of town, open market, and an excellent restaurant only a block away. We would definitely recommend this rental to people who would like a private setting just steps away from the center of the amazing town of Sarlat with its medieval buildings and charming atmosphere. The pre-historic caves such as Lascaux are very close-by, as are many old castles and historic sites. We enjoyed the boat trip on the Dordogne River as well as visiting many of the ancient hill towns.
The kitchen is well provided with all you need to produce your own meals from fresh produce purchased at the twice-weekly open town markets or other grocery stores. This was a very relaxing and peaceful retreat that will easily accommodate 6 people.

We had a great two-week stay at Maison Sarlat. We enjoyed the beautiful bedrooms/baths and gathering spaces of the house, the patio and the pool. Perfect weather enhanced the charm of the property, and the afternoon sun on the stone walls and blue shutters had us running for our cameras. The gardens surrounding the property made it feel like a private retreat, yet it was perfect proximity to the center of Sarlat. The owners were attentive to our needs, friendly and professional. The kitchen and dining areas were well equipped with everything we could need. Off-street parking was a plus. I would recommend this property without hesitation. I would have loved to have on-site WiFi,but the nearby cafe proved to be an acceptable alternative. The owners' use of PayPal (rather than requiring a bank wire transfer)for payment allowed me the benefit of using my credit card for the best Usd-euro exchange rate and no extra fees, enhancing the value of the rental.

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful house with us. It really was
the ideal spot for our group with lots of space and privacy, yet wonderfully
quaint and cozy at the same time. We particularly loved the covered terrace
with BBQ over looking the pool for meal times and also appreciated
the well-equipped kitchen where we prepared our latest purchases from
the food markets that we visited. The 3 bedrooms were very
comfortable with lovely fresh bed linens and each bedroom had it's
own ensuite shower room, which was a bonus for our group of six when it
came to getting ready! Staying in Sarlat was so convenient and being so
near to the restaurants was just perfect.....we can totally recommend the
Bistro just across the road.
The online description for the house was very accurate and the property is
extremely well-kept. I will certainly recommend this house to my friends
who are visiting the area next year.
Thank you once again for your lovely hospitality and useful

We found this to be a very well thought out house in a super location right in the middle of town. As there is a large mature garden with lots of trees it makes the whole house, garden and pool area very private, it really felt like a house in the countryside even though there are neighbours. Right from the start we received all the information, maps and details that we needed to enjoy our holiday. The owner, Hamish, maintained the pool and large garden during our stay and was on hand to recommend some excellent restaurants which were all within a short walk of the house, which was great. Sarlat is a lovely place to stay being pretty central to all the surrounding caves, attractions and chateaux, most being within an easy 15 minute car journey. The whole family, from aged 8 years to 76 years, especially enjoyed walking into town for the evening street shows.
