|Hotels & Flats in Sarlat, Dordogne|
|The narrow medieval streets of Sarlat-La-Canéda can't take cars, so this is a walking town. The best place to stay is right in the center so you can walk to the markets, restaurants and sights.|
The most congenial and convenient place to stay is right in the small medieval center of Sarlat, but—because it is small—there are only a few lodging-places.
Many more are scattered on the outskirts and in the countryside beyond.
Some Sarlat hotels in the center do not have vehicular access, so if you arrive by car, plan to park just outside the center and tote your luggage or make arrangements for pick-up by your hotel. (Here's information on car parking.)
If you're renting a flat, note that market days in Sarlat are Wednesday and Saturday, so plan to stock up on all the culinary treats of the region on those days. Mostgeneral food shops are on the outskirts of the medieval town.
The name of this splendid collection of five spacious self-catering apartments/flats translates as "Sarlat Suites," but this gives you no idea of the elegance and fine taste you'll encounter in this medieval Sarlat townhouse known historically as the Hôtel de Leydis.
Redesigned in the 1600s for the family of a prominent royal magistrate, and again recently to receive guests, it offers five suites with historic ambience and modern comforts. Two have full kitchens, two others kitchenettes. Each is furnished in a distinctive period style.
The owners of Suites Sarladaises live in the building and are always available for help and guidance.
Only two minutes' stroll (140 meters) from the central Place de la Liberté and the Office de Tourisme in the very heart of Sarlat's historic district, Les Suites Sarladaises are in the perfect location for getting to know the town, its sights, markets and restaurants. More...
