Self-catering holiday rentals in Sarlat for your home stay

Visiting Sarlat is like taking a step back into history. This enchanting capital of the Perigord region of the Dordogne is an extraordinarily well-preserved medieval town which the modern world seems to have largely passed by. Among the quaint, narrow winding streets can be found 250 listed buildings, the largest accumulation in all France, so there are plenty of attractions in this ancient town. Among these is the Cathedral of Saint-Sacerdos. With its mix of various architectural styles including Roman and Gothic this ecclesiastical masterpiece spans the 12th to the 17th centuries. The Manoir de Gisson is an unusual medieval townhouse, two buildings in different styles linked by a hexagonal tower, which have been turned into a museum where you can see how the Sarlat nobility once lived. The authentic 14th century French character of this unspoilt town makes it a top spot for visitors. Not far from Sarlat are the extensive caves of Les Eyzies with their astonishing rock formations and prehistoric cave paintings and the exquisite formal gardens of Marqueyssac and the Jardins d'Eyrignac.
