Sarlat la Caneda House Rental Photos and Description
Sleeps 8 In Four Double Bedrooms
The property in two parts, the original house and the stone former barn nestles amongst a charming cluster of honey-coloured stone houses, surrounded by walnut groves, at the end of a no through road. The two building set up is attractive to those people who wish to holiday in company with friends or family but maintain their own space.
This property would perfectly suit two families or couples, or a multi-generational family reunion, who can be together yet have independent facilities, or a couple on their own who wish to get away from it all and enjoy the space, peace and calm of this delightful place.
In high season it is expected that the property be rented as a whole unit, however, in mid and low season it is possible to rent only one of the units if that is preferred.
With a 5 minute stroll, you reach the banks of the Dordogne. This river is recognised as one of the 15 cleanest rivers in Europe. The nearest swimming beach is at Cenac-et-St-Julien.
Whether you're planning for lazy days at the house with relaxing walks to enjoy the stunning surroundings, or wish for a more active holiday, St.Julien is an excellent place in which to base yourself.
The property does require a fair level of mobility from its visitors as due to its age there are stone and wood stairs throughout the two buildings although the main bedroom of the stone barn is on the ground floor.
We prefer any family with young children stay in the main house where there is space for cot, high chair etc. and safe access to the garden.
From the living room in the main house doors open onto the pretty, enclosed garden on one side and onto the courtyard on the other. Stone Barn has doors onto the courtyard and a private terrace with table and chairs accessed from the mezzanine bedroom.
Both charcoal and gas barbecues are provided on the property and there is an open barn in the garden that can serve as an outdoor bar for night time or al fresco dining in the shade in the day time.
