Sarlat-la-Canéda, or simply Sarlat, is a town located in the Dordogne department in the Aquitaine region of France. Capital of the Black Perigord, it is one of the most attractive and alluring towns in southwestern France and its name evokes to all French both gastronomic and cultural pleasures. Its worldwide reputation is linked with its rich history dating from Paleolithic Ages onward. Its evolution over the centuries has left it with an exceptional heritage. As the first city in France to be safeguarded by being restored under the Malraux law of 1964, its classification as a “City of Art & History” is a testament to its high architectural value. Sarlat has been awarded the exceptional Three Star classification by the Michelin Travel Guide, making it equal to Europe’s most beautiful cities. During one of our Sarlat small group sightseeing day tours, you will have the opportunity to visit the fabulous Dordogne region.
