Travel Tips for Sarlat-la-Canéda

Charm of Sarlat

by Canadienne

I highly recommend Sarlat, but with the warning that it would be a very different place in high tourist season. We were there in the shoulder month (late September) and it felt charming and picturesque. When packed to the gills with people, I don't think my fondness would last. Fall is the perfect season for a visit ~ the temperature is perfect, the kids have returned to school. . .and the old town is exactly as it should be ~ quiet and quaint.

Place du 14 Juillet

by Canadienne

This is one the less-central squares in Sarlat, found on the outskirts of the old town. There are benches, lots of greenery, and it seems to be something of a local hangout.

One section of benches had a group of elderly men sitting quietly, the other held a group of elderly women, busy chatting up a storm. It was a lovely place to sit for a while and relax.

An aside, the park is named after July 14th ~ Bastille Day, which marked the end of the monarchy in France.

A Carefully Preserved Medieval Town

by hquittner

"Heavily Visited"

Sarlat (pop. 10K) conjoined with la Caneda is the capitol of the Perigord Noir and has retaained by careful restoration its ancient medieval and Renaissance charms to become the fourth most heavily visited city in France. (Even the anachronistic electric and other wiring are buried). This has made it a heavily used location for numerous French period movies.

"Why Here?"

We found Sarlat to be an excellent base to use to make day trips into the nearby Perigord Noir sites. There are many accommodations in all price ranges. We visited before the crush of tourists and although the restaurants were full in the evenings, there were a few tables. (In season it must require advance reservations).

"Food!"

Our introduction to French delicacies was expanded in Sarlat. (we will expand upon this under General Tips). It was the first time we had tasted a dish containing truffles and we did not live where people eat goose (for Christmas) and this was a first. We loved chicken liver pate and so foie gras was easily accepted. We became enamored of roast duck (we had magret de canard before) as done in Sarlat (more on that as a General Tip)
