Sarlat’s population is approximately 10,000 but in summer jumps to around 100,000. It’s late May and today, I saw two tour buses, strategically parked for attending the weekly Saturday morning market: the main street through town becomes an avenue of vendors, as well as throughout the historic center and its side streets – a true medieval maze of sights, smells, and flavors!
Regional specialties are walnuts, foie gras, strawberries, confit de canard, and a cheese made from goat’s milk, called “cabecou.”
Merci et bon weekend!
same to you as well
You would def enjoy The Perigof à Montmartre fete in May and again November, though minus the gorgeous medieval village. I Must get there!!!
Sounds great – merci et bon weekend!
Very colorful place. I have fine memories of weekends in Sarlat many years ago. Even remember back when Josephine Baker was installed nearby.
Thanks – visiting her former residence is on my ‘to do’ list – many great sites here to see!
I really like Sarlat. I have to brace myself every time I go, though, for the traffic queues…
I hear the traffic gets very backed up in high tourist season – the down side of a touristy place – happens in Nice as well!
How inviting those photos are!! Thanks for posting!!
