Forget about an impersonal hotel room – my charming, shabby-chic apartment in the heart of the Medieval city of Sarlat offers you everything you might need whilst exploring all that the beautiful Perigord Noir has to offer.
The historical quarter of Sarlat is a delight of lanes and passages passing between magnificent architecture and corners of history. My little apartment sits on the ground floor of a characterful ‘immeuble‘, (originally a bakery with the bakers` accommodation above) in a tranquil courtyard set back from a pretty cobbled street, a focal point for local artists and artisans, and only a few steps from the central Town Hall square.
Ideal for a couple, I have taken great care to create a peaceful retreat, where you can recharge your batteries during your stay in my simple, but stylish one bedroomed ‘pied-a-terre’. With quintessential French furnishings, there is a little bit of history in each of the two rooms.
The apartment is peacefully set back from the street at the back of a courtyard. You enter into the salon where you will find a fully equipped kitchen at the far back, perfect for preparing breakfast. You will find a fridge, oven and hob, plenty of crockery and cooking utensils.
The salon comprises a comfortable two seater settee and armchair where you can take in the pretty view of greenery or enjoy a relaxing evening watching a DVD from the selection available after a day of sight-seeing. There is also a comfortable separate dining table and chairs.
Through to the bedroom you will find a welcoming standard size double bed. There is a spacious wardrobe to properly unpack and make your stay more like being at home.
The bathroom is in the adjacent room complete with bath, sink, vanity unit and separate WC.
Finally, the little cherry on the cake is a set of table and chair which you can set out in the little courtyard – ideal for taking your morning coffee outside.
The apartment comes with WiFi and heating and a small gift pack of essentials to welcome you.
For your laundry requirements, there is washing machine along with a clothes airer, an iron, ironing board and complimentary detergent.
All linens and towels are provided for your personal use during your stay.
Please not that cleaning is not included in the price and a 25 Euros fee will be charge separately for this upon booking.
IF YOU ARE TRAVELING BY CAR
There are good parking options close. With regards to parking, the apartment is located at 6 Rue Fenelon which is in the heart of the historical town centre, a few meters away from the main market square - it´s truly a great location! Most of the old town is pedestrian, making it lovely to discover by foot. The good news though is that there are good parking options close by:
· There are many carpark spaces at the end of our street, about a 30 second walk from the apartment which offer 1h of free parking.
· There is a free area to park about a pretty 5 minute walk from the flat which not many people know about, mostly locals. So it´s a great place to park during the busy summer months, this is where we tend to always park. I have prepared a map on how to get there which is included in the Arrival Pack which I send out a few days before arrival.
