Superb gite and a warm, friendly welcome.
This is the perfect spot for two couples with it's two en-suite bedrooms. The gite is very well equipped throughout with everything you need. The pool is beautifully clean with magnificent views. The choice of sheltered and very private bbq areas is lovely and both areas have comfortable seating. A big thank you to Katie and Jean-Eric for a most enjoyable week at this highly recommended property.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and such a lovely one. We are glad you enjoyed your stay we try our best to make the house comfortable. People are always surprised about the pool having a view, as the house is on the outskirts of Sarlat people don't expect such a large garden. Thank you for being such lovely guests.

Lavender Cottage is one of the nicest cottages we have ever rented. The owners have taken huge care to ensure their guests have everything they could possibly require. In the lounge there are books to borrow, numerous board games, a DVD player and a selection of films. In the kitchen there is just about every implement you might need with fresh coffee as part of the very generous welcome pack including eggs, a selection of cheese, pate, wine, a fresh locally baked loaf and champagne. The rooms each have a fan - king size is wonderfully cool room in the heat- and lovely goose down duvets. Separate pool towels are supplied. The house and pool are immaculate. Jean Eric dropped off lovely home grown veggies when available. The guidance books in the cottage include helpful reviews of local restaurants and places to visit. And the small things that take the stress off all included like pods for dishwasher, washing machine and tassimo. Katie and Jean Eric have thought of everything! Icing on cake is that you can walk into Sarlat in 20 mins. There is a frisky Siamese in the area which is worth knowing if you are not a cat lover. All in all a richly deserved 5 out of 5 and bravo Katie and Jean Eric.

Thankyou for taking the time to write such a lovely review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay, we do try to take the stress out of arriving by providing a food welcome pack and little items to get you started so you don't have to immediately rush out to the shops. The guide books are just to help you get the most out of your holiday, and we do try to keep them up to date. The house is in a good location so you do have both benefits of being a walkable distance from Sarlat and having a large garden. Jeaneric does like most French men have a vegetable plot which is totally organic so when there is veggies he is happy to share them with our guests.

Relaxation in beautiful surroundings
We arrived at Lavender Cottage and was not disappointed at all. Katie the owner met us on arrival and gave us a tour of the house , and then gave us the very generous welcome pack, cheese , pate, butter, baguette, beers and champagne ! The house itself is a mile or so from beautiful Sarlat, whilst i'm sure you could walk into town getting back would be difficult because the house is set at the top of the hill, and walking back would be rather hard work, we didn't try! Katie offered to take us and collect us if we wanted to go to into Sarlat any evening to enjoy a meal, which was more than kind of her, and that's how she and her husband were for the whole of our stay. On hand for anything at all but certainly not intrusive . The house is extremely well equipped and very clean , it is set in beautiful grounds in a valley with lots of wildlife and stunning scenery . The pool is very large just a few steps away from the house. We found a pizza restaurant within walking distance , but Sarlat itself has so many amazing restaurants to choose from all within a few mins drive, or you could sit relax enjoy the peace and quiet and use the BBQ . We found a large supermarket with a few mins drive so everything really is on your door step here. We certainly would return to this property if in the area again.

Thankyou for taking the time to write such a lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and would welcome you back at any time. It is our pleasure to offer the welcome pack, it helps guests to relax as soon as they get to the house. It is rare to have a private pool for a two bedroomed house, it is one of the reasons we do get repeat customers. Sarlat is a lovely medieval town that has so many restaurants it is very easy to be spoilt for choice, we are happy you enjoyed our recommendations.

Lavender Cottage Sarlat la Caneda
Unaccustomed to reviews but lavender cottage, and owners Katie and Jean Eric deserve one. In a fabulous location just outside Sarlat the cottage has good accommodation and lovely outside areas in which to relax and dine. The pool area is just a few metres away and well equipped, a great place to relax after seeing the many beautiful chateau, gardens and hill top villages along the Dordogne. Sarlat is a jewel and the markets a must but take Katie's advice on the restaurants. Katie and Jean Eric are very welcoming and helpful and we enjoyed spending time with them. Lavender Cottage is a must book.

Wow what a lovely review, we really appreciate the time you took to write it. We were very lucky to be able to buy this house as to have such a large garden with a pool within walking distance of Sarlat is hard to find, they don't come on the market very often. It is a 20 minute walk into town but only a five minute by car, the advantage of walking is you might get to see the Badgers playing and it helps walk the calories off from all the foie gras and duck confit and cocktails! We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and it was such a pleasure meeting you all.

Peaceful location and 20 mins walkable distance ,via some fields, down into Sarlat
Katie sent us a map to find Lavendar Cottage in advance which was so helpful. Cottage is very well equipped and on arrival a warm welcome from Katie and a very generous ‘welcome pack’ which included cheeses, bread, milk ...and even a bottle of wine and champagne! The pool was cleaned every day. Some relations of Katie took over the care of the holiday let during the week and they were equally helpful and attentive. The kettle stopped working and within 30 minutes it had been replaced!

Thankyou for taking the time to write a review. The house location allows you to walk the scenic route into town but there is also the traditional route via the road, the short cut into town is my preferred route as if your lucky you get to see the Badgers playing. If things do breakdown which occasionally happens we normally can replace them quite quickly. The pool is cleaned and analysed daily by Jeaneric, he is also very happy to give guests recommendations about where to dine or visit in the area. The last few days of your stay I had my family 'over seeing' Lavendar Cottage as I was in Bordeaux but they hopefully had been well trained!

Everything you need for a perfect stay
Lavender Cottage has a superb location with stunning valley views and is well positioned for visiting sights such as Lascaux II. The cottage is equipped with everything you need, the pool area is very well maintained and the hammock is a lovely touch! The only thing to perhaps be aware of is that the bedrooms have no doors - one is upstairs and one downstairs so there are no privacy issues but the sound does carry so if you are upstairs wanting to sleep while someone is downstairs talking or watching TV, you'll struggle. Bring earplugs :-) Thank you to our hosts for a wonderful stay.

Thankyou for writing a review. As you say there are no privacy issues at the house as the bedrooms are on separate floors but if members in your party do not keep the noise down at night I am afraid that is out of my control, as you say sound does travel.

Lovely relaxing stay
Lavender Cottage is beautifully situated on the outskirts of the town of Sarlat, so there are plenty of facilities on your doorstep and many of the Dordogne's sites are well within reach. We particularly enjoyed our visit to Rocamadour. But once you've done some sightseeing, the house is perfect to return to. It is as well equipped as any holiday property we've ever stayed in, and the pool is wonderful (and was very necessary during the hot weather that we enjoyed). There are lots of areas in which to relax in the gardens. Finally, huge thanks to our hosts Katie and Jeaneric, particularly for the home-grown tomatoes and figs and the delicious fig jam.

Thankyou for taking the time to write a review. We are happy you enjoyed your holiday. When ever we have surplus home grown vegetables or fruit we are very happy to share with our guests, the pomegranates in the garden will be ready soon! The house is well situated for visiting many of the tourist attractions in the Dordogne and Sarlat is one of the most popular town in the Aquitaine.

Totally relaxed home from home.
Peaceful location, but Sarlat in walking distance. Katie and Jeaneric are very welcoming hosts, the cottage has everything you need with great attention to detail. The pool and gardens are beautiful. Lots of local things to do and Katie and Jeaneric will help with directions, recommendations or bookings. Highly recommended, I'm sure we'll be back.

Serene and Sarlat
We spent a week in this well equipped cottage- very close to Sarlat markets. Katie is very friendly and helpful, and there are two good outside areas for private relaxing and a pool.

A perfect retreat
Sarlat is a beautiful Medieval Town with lots of lovely restaurants and shops. On a Wednesday there is a smaller market and on Saturday a larger one with stalls all around the town, definitely worth a visit with lots and food to try, We had the most relaxing holiday we have ever had at Lavender Cottage, Katie is a wonderful friendly host and gave us lots of recommendations of places to see and restaurants to eat In. the swimming pool is secluded with an amazing view we had to ourselves.You can walk into Sarlat from the Cottage but it is a long hill which took us about 20 minutes, so we walked down but got a taxi back up, although you could drive down as we went in May parking is plentiful except on Market days. We would definitely recommend staying here and hope to return soon.
