Wonderful house in Sarlat !
La Maison Secrete is a great house in a great location in Sarlat. We loved our stay there. The place was spotless, the beds were comfortable and the large bathroom and nice shower were great. The location is the best! Just steps away from the main shopping street in Sarlat as well as a great central location from which to visit the area. You can park close by for an hour to unload your bags – just a very short walk from the parking lot – and a free parking lot is only a five minute walk from the house. Sandrine and Marc are very nice, very responsive and helpful with suggestions for places to eat, shop and visit. We visited some really quaint and beautiful towns based on their suggestions. We had a wonderful stay in the Dordogne!
Great location, clean and very comfortable.
We had a lovely stay at this stylish property, which lacks nothing for a self-catering stay. The whole property is newly refurbished, and tastefully decorated. The beds and bathroom/showers particular highlights. The location, yards away from the medieval town centre, can’t be faulted, and there’s free parking just a few minutes away. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to have a super comfortable base for their explorations of Sarlat-de-canéda and region.
Home away indeed!
We could not be more pleased with our choice of property in Sarlat. First, the hosts. We had informed them we would be arriving around 5 PM our first day. I experienced an unfortunate series of events flying from Denver to France. My actual flight arrived around 8 PM, but my luggage did not. So that required an extra hour at the airport. Then my friends and I promptly got lost heading north to the Dordogne Area. So we actually arrived well after midnight. Our hosts nevertheless were waiting for us in the parking area near their apartment. So… Not a good start. Everything from there just got better.
The apartment is wonderful. Just as described on the website. But they were a little extras, like a small garden area where we could dine alfresco if we chose to. The shower was huge, the bedrooms spacious and comfy.
But our hosts went above and beyond the call of duty. We had arrived at their apartment late, very late Saturday night. When we returned from a day of sightseeing on Tuesday, my missing suitcase was waiting in the apartment for me. The airline had called Sandrine, and she arranged to have the bag delivered to the apartment, thus saving me the challenge of having to patiently wait for a bag when all I wanted to do was explore this magnificent area. The apartment was also supplied with a variety of guide books, and recommendations for shopping and eating. We would love to return to this area one day, and hopefully this apartment will be available. The location could not have been better. Just a few blocks away from the marketplace, easy walk to the town center and all the different culinary delights. Thank you Mark and Sandrine for making our visit to your Beautiful area of France a dream come true !
I would thoroughly recommend this delightful property near town centre.
We looked for a property near to the Sarlat town centre and landed on Naison Secrete. We were not disappointed. The house is exactly as advertised. Well appointed and very tastefully decorated. The location is perfect. There is free car parking a short walk away and you can walk to the main square within five minutes meaning that all the shop, restaurants, bakeries etc are within easy reach.
Marc and Sandrine were excellent hosts. They met us as planned and spent an hour showing us the property and also giving lots of helpful information about the local area. This was very kind.
I could not fault the property at all. We stayed with our two teenage daughters and did a combination of eating in and out.
The house was very clean and a true home from home.
I would not hesitate in recommending this property.
Many thanks to Marc and Sandrine for being such lovely hosts.
Fantastic would definitely return👍
Beautiful property, we all loved the holiday Marc and Sandrine were there to greet us and were very helpful .
I would highly recommend recommend Maison Secrete.
If you’re searching for a place to stay in Sarlat, search no more!
My wife an I stayed here in May, our first visit to the Dordogne region and it couldn’t have been a better experience. The owners keep it impeccably clean and offered a warm welcome with information and recommendations. La Maison Secrete is as described and even more. The location couldn’t be any better in this often crowded town. You are steps away from parking as well as the center of this beautiful medieval town and yet traffic, noise, and privacy are not an issue. We have traveled extensively and found this place to be one of our best experiences.
Much aloha for allowing us into your beautiful apartment
Sandrine and Marc were so kind to pick us up at the train station and give us so many helpful advice on where to go and visit. Their place is a perfect place to stay in Sarlat. Much aloha and mahalo for allowing us to stay at your most beautifully decorated and very clean apartment. Emit was most perfect place to stay.
Sehr schönes Appartment am Rande der Altstadt
Das Appartment war ansprechend eingerichtet und enthielt allen Komfort.Es lag am Rande der Altstadt, sodass man den Ort gut zu Fuß erkunden konnte.Da in einer kleinen Nebenstrasse gelegen, war es ruhig.Der Gastgeber war freundlich und sehr hilfsbereit.
Wonderful property and location
This was a delightful property only a block from the old medieval city in Sarlat. It was quite roomy. If the weather had been warmer (we were there in October), we could have used the terrace for dining. As it was, it has a large living room, a dining room, a kitchen and a laundry room on the first floor. The second floor has two bedrooms, a roomy bath room and a separate latrine room. The stairs were a bit of a challenge at my height (196 cm) and age (74), but I made it up and down several times a day without incident. There is some free parking within a couple of blocks, but we mostly used the pay lot virtually next to the apartment. It was free at night and we were mostly on the road in the day time. Bakeries, supermarkets and gas stations are nearby. The old town is full of restaurants as is the surrounding area. The owners were very accommodating and pleasant and delightful to work with. The price was reasonable, but HomeAway has started charging a hefty ‘service fee’ for using their service. We stayed five nights while we explored the area. It was a great place to stay.
Exactly what we were looking for
My husband and I were were looking for a place to settle for a week in the Perigord area. We hoped to find something quiet, clean, well-appointed, that was walking distance from Sarlat. La Maison Secrete was perfect, and the location is fabulous. In addition, Sandrine and Marc were friendly, helpful, understanding, and speak very good English. We highly recommend this site.
