Having read and enjoyed your marvellous article on Dordogne in the July issue of Living France, we booked a last-minute holiday to Sarlat.
Sarlat is an absolutely gorgeous town, exactly as described in your article. We really enjoyed the small winding streets, the marvellous quaint buildings and the outdoor restaurants.
I’m wondering, with your vast knowledge of France, if you know of other towns similar to Sarlat we could enjoy in the future. We have been to many French towns over the years but none as beautiful and vibrant as Sarlat. I would be so grateful for any suggestions you may have.

We’re really pleased you enjoyed visiting Sarlat, Gwyneth. Pézenas in Hérault is a lovely town full of artisan workshops, and Figeac in Lot is worth a visit too – it’s on the Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage route.
