Where to stay near Sarlat

I'll be spending four nights in the Sarlat area in September. I will have a car and understand it is very difficult to park a car near a hotel in Sarlat. If that is true, where should we stay? I'm overwhelmed a bit with the choices. What do you recommend?

It's not that hard to park in Sarlat. We stayed at a B&B/inn adjacent to the historic center (Les Cordeliers, highly recommended), and parked on the street each night. Some nights it was a bit of a trek, but a max of about 300 meters. And it's so lovely to be in old Sarlat in the evening -- as well as the day.

There are loads of parking options in Sarlat, and September, though busy, isn't high season. I wouldn't have any qualms about being able to find parking at that time of year. You might end up a few blocks from your hotel, but that's no big deal.

If you're interested in staying outside of town and would like a B&B, try Le Relais Du Pech in Carlux a short distance away from Sarlat. The B&B is run by a British Couple who were very helpful to us when we stayed there last year. Nothing fancy, but clean, reasonalble and a great breakfast each morning.


Here's a link to our blog and the entry about out stay in the B&B.

We stayed in this lovely B&B just a short drive outside of Sarlat and just loved it:

ONCE you figure out the closest parking to your hotel (and we at first lost our sense of direction!) it is not difficult to find parking. The map of Old Sarlat and surroundings, which you can get at the Tourist INfo Center, shows the available parking lots surrounding the pld quarter, and the # of spaces
For ex, we stayed in a corner of the old town and les than two minutes away was the Gendarmerie parking lot , on Blvd Henri Arlet, with spaces. Also, there are certain hours during the day when parking on the street is free, and of course, early morning, and evenings after 7 pm (I think) it was all free.
Any hotel or B and B you choose should be able to fill you in on this info.

had picked this place to stay in November but the day we were due to arrive is a holiday and no car rentals were available. Waiting until the next day would have cut our trip short ao decided to just spend even more time in Paris. It looks lovely and I have it on my list for our next trip to France when hopefully we can get to the Dordogne.


On site parking and a bus into Sarlat if you don't feel like driving in
