B and B in the Dordogne

We stayed for a week at Pont de Cause B and B near Sarlat in the Dorgone.
The hosts were terrific and their facility was first class at very reasonable rates.
Centrally located we were able to drive to most cave site seeing locations easily and
enjoyed eating at several of the recommended restaurants in the area.

We are just back from 3 weeks in France which included a marvelous 5-night stay in Sarlat-la-Caneda. We stayed at Les Cordeliers which is owned by Chris & Amanda Johnson, British expats & Sarlat enthusiasts. The inn is a scant five-minute walk from the old town with all it has to offer & steps from two restaurants highly rated on tourist sites. Huge rooms with huge baths - all airy & filled with light. Breakfast is very inexpensive (7 or 8 euros when we stayed which included breads & pastries, cheeses & cold meats & salmon, fresh - & I mean FRESH - squeezed orange juice plus eggs as you wish. The Johnsons maintain a pantry filled with snacks & wines for you to enjoy along with a fun library of books to borrow during your stay. I would stay at Les Cordeliers every year 'til the end of time...or until Chris opens his new venture at the other end of Sarlat in about 2 years!

Les Cordiliers is absolutely amazing, probably the nicest B&B anywhere we have stayed in Europe.

Be sure to ask Chris and Amanda about the history of their building--it is fascinating and they are terrific hosts. We loved staying at Les Cordilieres this past June. We had some great adventures canoeing, visiting a fois gras farm and a snail farm, and just enjoying the old town of Sarlat.

B&B Chambre La Barde next to the Montfort castle is 10 minutes to the town of Sarlat. www.labardemontfort.com. Breakfast is included in the room price and they gave us a discount since we stayed 3 nights.
The atmosphere is very welcoming, relaxing and the outdoor pool was a bonus! Marie-Christine and Phillipe were guest centered, accommodating and allowed us to use a communal kitchen and their barbecue for dinner. By our second night, we were cooking and sharing delicious food with the other guests from Spain, England, France, and the United States. Also, this B&B is close to where we rented a canoe to float down the Dordogne River. La Barde is a lovely retreat and we had an enchanting time with new friends.

We stayed in Sarlat in 2014 June. We were in an AirBnB which was a nice change from a regular hotel with enough room for 4 with complete kitchen...BUT it doesn't sound as nice as your location. LOVED the area. Next time we'll follow your lead.
