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 !
