About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Kate Waters

We are a family of four who moved to Sarlat in 2004 in search of a new life and new challenges. Well we certainly found both ... A new life and a lot of challenges. We have enough funny stories and experiences to fill a book and now have a great lifestyle and a business in which we take great pride and enjoy sharing it with others.

Year property purchased 2004
Why this location? We moved lock stock and barrel to the Sarlat area in 2004, buying a set of empty farm buildings that needed far too much work. But the position and the views had us hooked and nothing came anywhere near a close second. So here we are, several years have past and the renovation and transformation completed, but not without some real highs and lows.
Unique benefits of property The position is magical and just not possible to capture in a picture.
We have been extremely lucky to find a property with such a formula of character, views and location. We are close to Sarlat, which is the jewel of the Dordogne, yet in a truly rural setting in stunning countryside with easy accessibility of all of the best touristic sites in Dordogne and Lot.
