About Sharon and Mark

Sharon and Mark have traveled the world together for thirty years. When they visited Sarlat, they fell in love with the yellow stone of its buildings. The people of Sarlat were so warm and friendly. Immediately, they knew they would live there. La Pivoine is their home in France.

Sharon and Mark purchased this Apartment in 2016

Why Sharon and Mark chose Sarlat-la-Canéda

Having fallen in love with Sarlat, Sharon and Mark searched for years to find just the right place. It was not enough to live in Sarlat -- the house had to be a home with character. It had to be in the historic center. It had to have the honey-colored stone of the city. On the cathedral square, La Pivoine is that home. Sharon and Mark hope that, when they must be away, you can enjoy the home and the city as much as they do.

What makes this Apartment unique

La Pivoine is a large, light, space that is simultaneously airy and substantial. It is centrally located on the cathedral square and it has a balcony that overlooks the square, a rare thing in Sarlat. One can go for extended periods of time without a car. Sarlat has two wonderful market days each week -- Saturday and Wednesday -- right outside the front door. The train station is within walking distance.

                                                              It's all about the balcony!

                                                              We stayed in Sarlat for four nights at La Pivoine. It was fantastic. The apartment is very large and we thoroughly enjoyed staying here. The balcony was the best part--sitting there sipping wine and watching the world go by. Heaven. Everything is within walking distance--restaurants, wine stores etc. The location could not be better. Although, we only ate breakfasts here, it was great to have a fully equipped kitchen. We especially enjoyed having a washer and dryer as we had been traveling for about a week and half and needed to do laundry. Very convenient. The location could not be better. Their property manager met us right on time to give us the keys and review details of the apartment. We found parking nearby for free and that was not an issue for us. It's about a 5 minute walk away. We thoroughly enjoyed walking through the market on Saturday morning. There is an apartment above La Pivoine so at times you can hear people talking and walking around. You will not be disappointed if you stay here. They have thought of everything to make this a very special place to vacation.

                                                              One can spend days exploring the medieval city of Sarlat with its cathedral, twisting cobbled streets, art exhibits, shops, museums, and the enigmatic La Lanterne de Mort. The area has many examples of fascinating prehistoric cave paintings. Other prehistoric sites include cave dwellings, including the one where the original Cro-Magnon man was discovered. The countryside is dotted with lovely chateaux and gardens, including Chateau des Milandes -- Josephine Baker's former home. The Dordogne river provides opportunities for canoing and other water activities. A dedicated bike path starts in Sarlat and bicycle rental is available. When you decide to venture out, Europcar has a rental office in town.
