About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Geraldine McNamara

Hi! We're Geraldine & Joe. For years we happily holidayed in various parts of France with our daughter until we discovered the Périgord Noir! From the moment we set foot in Sarlat (we only came for the market!) we fell in love with this magical little town and were hooked. Drawn back time after time, last year we had the opportunity to buy our lovely apartment and so La Liberté Studio was born. Currently in London, we move to Sarlat in 2018. We and our local team look forward to welcoming you.

The Owner Recommends

Sarlat farmers' market is held on Place de la Liberté on Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout the year until approx 1pm.
On Saturdays there is also an artisan market that runs the length of Rue de République in Sarlat until about 4pm.
There is a covered market most mornings until 1pm in the former Église Sainte-Marie de Sarlat which is just off Place de la Liberté (directly opposite our building)
Sarlat market is reknowned for being the biggest and best in the Perigord Noir. Smaller markets are held in nearby villages on different days of the week. Information about these markets is available in the tourist information material that we provide to all our guests.

Creperies

Crêperie Lou Dotze, Place du Peyrou, Sarlat - opposite Cathedrale Saint-Sacerdos.
Serving savoury and sweet crepes. I think the owner has changed in the last year because last year the service was appalling but in July and August 2017 these were the best crepes we've had (both sweet and savoury) and the waiting staff are delightful! Highly recommended!!

Crêperie des Fontaines, 4, Cour des Fontaines, Sarlat
They've gained some poor reviews on Tripadvisor but we've always found them very good and nice for a change of location in a pleasant, not too busy, square.

Le Canele De Bordeaux - Lemoine, 13 Rue De La Republique, Sarlat
Nice sweet crepes (no savoury). They also sell beautiful, original decorative chocolate gifts

Restaurants

La Couleuvrine, 1 Place de la Bouquerie, Sarlat (our favourite in all of Sarlat!)
La Petite Borie, 4, Rue Tourny, Sarlat
La Rapiere, Place de la Cathedrale, Sarlat
Chez Le Gaulois, 9 rue Tourny, Sarlat (Cheese/charcuterie platters for when you've had enough of duck!!)
A bottle of the local Pecharmant is a must if you like red full-bodied wine!



Gouffres/Caves

Gouffre de Padirac, 46500 Padirac, Lot - our very first experience of a gouffre and still the most awe-inspiring
Gouffre de Proumeyssac, Rue de Proumeyssac, 24260 Audrix

Prehistory - Cave Art/Engravings

Grotte de Bara-Bahau, 24260 Le Bugue
Grotte de Rouffignac, 24580 Rouffignac -Saint-Cernin
Font de Gaume (reservations need to be made weeks/months in advance)

Outdoor activities

Canoeing down the Dordogne - available from various operators at multiple locations.
Highly recommended!!

Cycling the Sarlat Voie Verte route. A very gentle flat route along a former train track on a 48km loop from Sartlat to Cazoulès. Perfect for novices. Bicycle hire is available at the start of the route at Liberty Cycle, Voie verte, ZONE DE MADRAZES, Sarlat. We hadn't cycled in 30 years and our 8yr old had only cycled 5km previously and we all managed it and loved it! It was great!! Highly recommended!!
