Sarlat-la-Canéda

Sarlat defines enchantment. If you're planning a trip to the many prehistoric caves and the amazing perched villages near this gorgeous town, then this capital of the Périgord Noir is the place to stay. Sarlat (as it's usually called) is ideally located, with Les Eyzies-de-Tayac, Montignac, and Lascaux to its north and Beynac-et-Cazenac, Domme, and La Roque-Gageac just to its south. Even Rocamadour, to the southeast on the D704, which connects with the D673, isn't all that far from here and Cahors is a straight shot south on the A20 péage (toll road) or the more scenic (and longer) N20.
