We spent 2 weeks in France. The first week in Sarlat, the second week in Paris. If I could do it over, I would stay in Sarlat for 2 weeks. A very beautiful region with interesting history, great food and nice people. The house was perfect. Charming, quiet, comfortable and the pool was great. Loved that it was walking distance to town. We will be back.

Xanthe personifies 'Ms Guest Services'! We were 3 couples from Breckenridge, CO and were warmly greeted by Xanthe. She had so many great ideas where to go, what to do, etc. She is from England so we had no language issues. The house was charming and just as shown in the pictures. The location was so beautiful and so quiet for being right in the middle of town. Unfortunately, it was unseasonably cold so we couldn't use the pool, but we sure did enjoy the fireplace! So highly recommend this home!!!!
Please note that as we have 3 houses with the same or similar facilities all within the same Sarlat and Beynac area, our availability calendar shows when all of our houses are reserved, so if a date is shown as available we do have 1, 2 or all 3 of our houses available for that date.
I also have the details on a couple of other similar homes in the area, so if this does not suit you I can forward on the details of the other houses, both have large 10x5m pools and can accommodate between 4-10 guests. Both are very reasonably priced for the facilities offered and within 5 minutes of Sarlat, Domme, Beynac, Roque Gageac and the Dordogne river.

Xanthe Eadie purchased this House in 2007
Why Xanthe Eadie chose Sarlat-la-Canéda
The location is the best, it's just the right side of the town :). We have some great delis & coffee shops just around the corner, an Arcachon fresh oyster bar & seafood restaurant, a cheese deli, a French Bistro, a noodle bar, a charcuterie & Boucherie, a fab boulangerie with fresh tarts & gateaux, a pizzeria & a supermarket all within a genuine 3 minute walk from the house :). The pretty cottage has a large un-overlooked garden, plenty of parking spaces, a large in-ground pool with non slip steps surrounded by south facing terrace, a poolside shower, all ensuite bedrooms.........need I say more? ;)
What makes this House unique
We have three beautiful holiday homes, one in central Sarlat, one in central Beynac (wonderful house which over looks 4 Chateaux and the Dordogne river!) and a 16thC farmhouse which has been recently added to our portfolio after a 150,000 Euros refurb. It has a heated salt water pool, ensuite bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen with granite tops and travertine flooring and all the facilities that our other homes offer and it is located just 2 miles from the centre of Sarlat in a tranquil bucolic setting. Both our Sarlat and Beynac homes have been our own family home since we moved to France 17 years ago and we now offer them for others to enjoy. All three houses are private and you will have sole use of the house, garden and pool, they all have their own off road private parking and ensuite bedrooms. As we now live only 5 minutes drive from both Sarlat and Beynac we are on hand for any queries that you may have during your stay so you can be assured of the best of care & assistance if needed. The Sarlat & Beynac houses are within a 2-5 minute easy level stroll of restaurants, cafes and wonderful boulangeries selling the best croissants and baguettes. There are Farmers Food Markets each day of the week in the surrounding towns and villages and a twice weekly street market in Sarlat which also has a daily covered market by the main Square. Here you will find the local farmers selling their freshly harvested produce, including organic bread, fruits, vegetables, cheeses and creams. During the summer months there is a daily variety of street entertainment in Sarlat which is free to watch and sometimes participate in ! Our new holiday home is within walking distance of a bar & restaurant and great take away pizzeria with twice weekly live music during July and August and is only a 2 minute car journey into bustling Sarlat.

Wonderful get-away to relax and unwind.
'We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in this house and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone who is looking for a relaxing house in Sarlat.
Walking to the boulangerie in the morning for fresh croissants, all the
shops, food market and restaurants is a big bonus. We followed the owners recommendations for eating out and the Bistro a 2 minute walk from the front gate is superb and great value for money.
The owners are brilliant and couldn't have been more helpful sorting out our lost luggage and car hire for us. They even arranged for bike hire to be delivered to our door. We found that everything that we needed during our stay had been provided. This is a well thought out holiday home from home'.
Perfect vacation home to explore the Dordogne
First, let's start with our landlords- Xanthe and Hamish were perfect hosts. From the time we booked throughout our three week stay they were responsive to our questions and needs. Thank you! The house was more than we could have imagined when we booked online. The kitchen meets all the needs that Americans would be looking for: washing machine, dishwasher, large refrigerator and good stove top and oven. There were plenty of dishes, etc. The three bedrooms and bathrooms are comfortable and easy to settle in (even though a little more storage for the first floor bedrooms would be nice). With three adult couples, we managed shower times and hot water was not a problem. The living room/dining was comfortable for six people and we enjoyed the fireplace on chilly evenings. The weather allowed us to sit by the pool (not in!) and enjoy the sun and patio. There was plenty of privacy with parking for 3 cars easily. The house is on a quiet street and an easy walk to the medieval village of Sarlat. We highly recommend this house for a short stay or a longer vacation as a base to explore SW France. We will be back!
Ideal holiday location
Delightful house with three en-suite bedroom that is ideally located for exploring the whole of the Dordogne. It is at the top of the main shopping street in Sarlat with easy walking to all the shops, restaurants and attractions in Sarlat.
Good location as all areas can be access by car without driving through the town centre, which can be busy on market days.
Truly a great place to stay.
Wonderful place to stay in Sarlat la Caneda
The house suited our family of 4 perfectly. The owner (Xanthe) had the slow combustion wood heater going so it was toasty worm when we arrived. He was an excellent communicator in the booking phase and lead up to our stay. The free Wifi kept our two teenage sons happy when we were not out taking in the many sightseeing opportunities in and around Sarlat. The house itself has been refurbished and was clean, comfortable and had all that you need in terms of equipment and appliances. It is in a very quiet location, being set well back from the quiet street, but yet is only a 5 minute walk into the centre of town. Xanthe ensured our security bond was returned promptly. I cannot recommend this house too highly. A great place to stay!!!
Fantastic Location on Sarlat
We have stayed in this house for 6 weeks over the last two years and we will return again. Everything is as advertised and the reviews on this site are correct. The location, a 5 minute walk into the Medieval Centre, is the best thing about this house. There is great shopping just a couple of minutes away - a great bakery, cheese shop, and Supermarket. International newspapers are available at Newsagent just minutes away too. The Master Suite upstairs is comfortable and very roomy, with windows on both sides giving a breeze on hot nights. The double bedroom downstairs is comfortable, faces the garden and has a ensuite shower room. The third bedroom adjacent to the kitchen has 2 single beds and a small shower room, with the toilet off the kitchen, so its not ensuite - to me this bedroom is suitable for a single adult or children. The garden is sunny and private, and there is car parking for 3 cars. The pool is in a sunny position and is maintained weekly. Hamish and Xanthe, the owners, live locally and will attend to any issues that arise promptly. The house is in a quiet position, so a good nights sleep is assured.
Perfect retreat and so close to the centre!
We arrived in the evening and found that everything was prepared for us, a fire in the fireplace, the pool ready. All the promises of the photos and the details proved corrrect and even better in reality. The rooms were wonderful, very stylish and cosy. Everything was clean and well maintained. The fully equipped kitchen enabled us to prepare the most gorgeous meals with everything bought fresh on the market or brought home from our excursions around the Dordogne valley.
Private parking, very precious in central Sarlat, several excellent restaurants in walking distance, shops close at hand made our life very easy and restful.
The area is fabulous, one feels in the South, people are very open and friendly and the sun plentiful. On our trips around we discovered the most impressive cave paintings, wonderful little villages, dramatic castles on steep slopes, all in the colours of the river, the ochre of the hills and so many different shades of green.
Xanthe and Hamish were always in the background to help should any problems arise. Everything went so well, that we are already planning our next stay in the house.
