If you wanted to make a film in a picturesque French town you would probably consider Sarlat. The buildings are a honey-coloured stone with stone shingled roofs and rounded turrets. There are winding, passageways and small churches, people sitting outside at pavement cafes and street markets. This 8th century town in the Perigord region of France attracts over 1 million visitors a year and for one week in May, I was one of them.
I travelled to Sarlat by train from Bordeaux this morning. I spent two restful days there in the very comfortable Hotel de la Indendance getting over jet-lag from the long trip from Australia.
I took this rainy day photo from my hotel room window.
