Sarlat la Caneda Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Best location, Sarlat 5 min, Pool, WiFi, Many years of enthusiastic guests

Best possible location for visiting Dordogne - Charm and comfort - Beautiful and peaceful environment - Many years of enthusiastic guests - Awarded official French government 4 star rating in 2008 –Warm and friendly welcome - 5 minutes from Sarlat - 900 m from Dordogne river - Wi-Fi - Sat TV - Private garden with barbecue - Chlorine-free heated shared swimming pool.

Within the golden triangle of Montfort, Beynac and Sarlat, five kilometers south of Sarlat and near the 12th century village of Vitrac, we have an ideally located property of exceptional beauty. The property consists of a group of vast and imposing original stone buildings surrounded by three hectares (7 acres) of park and private forest. A prized south of Sarlat location, just a few hundred meters from the Dordogne river, yet within five minutes by car (even in July and August) from the medieval charm of Sarlat, the capital of Perigord Noir, its excellent restaurants, shops, markets and festivals. Both quiet and peaceful, but close to everything and not isolated. Our three charming gîtes, Le Pommier, Le Rosier and Le Bois, are perfect for your self catering holiday rental while you explore the beautiful Dordogne valley. Very comfortable and full of character, each has a large private garden, barbecue and use of a chlorine free heated swimming pool. Official 4 star rating.

SARLAT: Sarlat is by far the most important tourist site in the region. Over a million visitors discover or re-discover this medieval jewel every year. It has one of the largest medieval urban areas in the world and the greatest number of historical monuments per square kilometer in Europe. Starting in 1964 the town has been restored and renovated revealing a veritable treasure trove of Medieval and Renaissance art to the public. The 1978 film version of “Les Miserables” was filmed extensively in Sarlat, but also in nearby Domme, with the stunning Beynac Castle standing in for the famous Toulon Jail. Sarlat’s wonderful architecture and medieval style buildings and stone roofs have made a backdrop for a score of other top motion pictures since, which has added to it’s fame and it’s fortune.

BEYNAC: The cliff-clinging Chateau de Beynac soars 150 meters straight up above the Dordogne river. Apart from the impressive location, Chateau de Beynac is also a fascinating castle to visit and explore. You can see many of the ancient rooms, dungeons, kitchens and living quarters. In 1189 Richard the Lionheart, the king of England, seized the castle by scaling the cliffs below and entering through the toilet holes that are suspended out over the cliff. They are still there today and can be visited. Beynac has served as a location for several films, including Jeanne d'Arc by Luc Besson, in 1999.

OTHER THINGS TO SEE : Our own personal website contains a comprehensive guide of all the must-see attractions in the Black Perigord including a map, beautiful photos and a brief description in five languages. You will also find a map of nearby stores and recommended bakeries (with opening hours and days closed), pharmacies, post office, bike rentals, a farm selling directly fresh foie gras products, etc. and a lot of other useful information.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks Karen and Peter for a lovely week at le bois, and for the very warm welcome, had a great week here in the Dordogne with our children, swimming, sightseeing, (zip wiring through the trees in a forest) and eating out in the lovely garden at the back of our gite. We loved it so much here we have booked again for next year (our third year in a row!)

Best wishes to you both and see you again next summer!

A very enjoyable relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely week in Le Bois at Le Petit Manoir. The property is very pretty, was very clean and well maintained. The pool was a bonus in the hot weather we enjoyed. Karen is very helpful, without being intrusive. We would thoroughly recommend this property for a relaxing stay in beautiful countryside.

An absolute pleasure!

  • 5 of 5
An absolute pleasure right from my initial enquiry. Karen was extremely efficient in responding to emails & made the booking process hassle free. On arrival at Le Petit Manoir we were given a very warm welcome, given a tour of the beautiful garden & pool & then shown to our Gite, Le Bois. A real home from home, fully equipped to a high standard with Wi Fi, English TV channels (to keep my husband happy), washing machine, dishwasher,heavenly beds & a lovely view.The private garden, backing onto a small wooded area was an ideal area to keep our two dogs entertained & the pool such a luxury in the very hot weather. Karen & Peter were also very understanding, when our not so well behaved 6 month old Cockerpoo insisted on escaping on a regular basis to play with Forte. Both our hosts were on hand throughout our stay to answer any questions, advise about restaurants etc but we're unobtrusive. Le Petit Manoir is in a fabulous location, within a 5-10 min drive to the beautiful Sarlat & many other attractions just on the doorstep. Karen advised us about lots of nice walks without having to get into our car. The river & beach are also only 5 min by car, where you can also hire a Kayak, maybe next time! A thoroughly relaxing break in beautiful surroundings with fantastic hosts, so much so, that we couldn't resist booking for next year before we left. Look forward to seeing you next June.
