About this location

The Dordogne region

Situated within the hamlet of La Tour we are two minutes from the pretty village of Sainte Nathalene with a hotel bar restaurants and a small shop. Just 7 miles from the historical town of Sarlat-la Caneda, with more listed buildings than any other town in Europe and a twice weekly market, we are perfectly placed to access all of the most beautiful sites in Dordogne and Lot.

The area is a walkers paradise. Hundreds of footpaths weave there way throughout the area with superb countryside and views along the way. Information and maps are available on request.

There are numerous chateaux to visit, caves to explore and pretty market towns to meander through. There is also a wide range of outdoor activities for all ages close by. These include hot air balloon trips, canoeing down the Dordogne (an absolute must) air parks, cycling, quad biking, para gliding, water parks, paint ball, karting, horse riding, walking, wine tasting trips, etc etc.

For those that want to sample the local wine or just want a relaxed evening, leaving the car behind, then transport can be arranged in and out of Sarlat or any other local villages.


Sarlat is a town not to be missed during a visit to Dordogne. The town, with a truly relaxed and laid back atmosphere is the jewel of Perigord Noir and is arguably the gastronomic capital of Dordogne. The medieval buildings that fill the town are the perfect backdrop for the large colourful market, full of local fruit and vegetables and all the gastronomic delights of the area, not to mention all the nik naks you would expect to find at a market of this magnitude.

The restaurants, cafes and bars offer a superb choice to suit all your needs. There is a regular array of street entertainment which you can enjoy whilst dining on a warm sunny evening or whilst sitting enjoying a coffee and watching the world go by during the day.

Tiny narrow streets wind their way through the town and around each corner is yet another building steeped in history and charm with a tale to tell from yesteryear. A listed walk of around an hour is available from the tourist office which takes you around the town highlighting the many points of interest the beauty and history.
