Introducing Sarlat-la-Canéda

A picturesque tangle of honey-coloured buildings, alleyways and secret squares make up the beautiful town of Sarlat-la-Canéda, which boasts some of the region's best-preserved medieval architecture and makes the perfect base for exploring the Vézère Valley. Unsurprisingly. it's a favourite location for film directors, but it's also firmly on the tourist radar, and you might find it dificult to appreciate the town's charms among the summer throngs.
