My wife and I stayed at Bon Encontre for 5 nights in July while visiting the Dordogne area. Christine, the owner, runs an excellent place to stay. Extensive breakfast buffet included homemade pastries and cakes every day, and included fresh cut fruit. Very nice breakfast room, as well as lovely seating on a covered terrace overlooking the pool. The pool was large, clean, and included plenty of seating for guests; towels provided. Room was very clean; bed comfortable... and air conditioning helped during the July heat. Christine provided excellent recommendations for restaurants in Sarlat (you should follow her recommendations!), as well as, very good suggestions for sightseeing. All good! The hotel is situated at the top of a steep hill. We chose to drive the very short distance down the hill each evening for dinner in Sarlat. There is parking at the bottom of the hill or along the street that goes around the old town. We never had a problem finding a parking space even though this was the busy season in Sarlat. Highly recommend Hotel Bon Encontre.
The hotel is very pleasant and the owner is very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were also very good. The location is good but it is within walking distance of the old town only if you are in good health. We walked all of the time and did not have difficulty.
Friendly, clean, all facilities in excellent condition, Host & staff Very attentive to ensure your stay and holiday is most enjoyable, pool area welcome retreat late afternoon
Location slightly out of Sarlat but totally walkable, only downside a steep incline to return to accommodation after an evening in Sarlat, not suitable for people with walking difficulties
Breakfast was fine, but the coffee could have been stronger! Coffee cups should have been smaller so the coffee wouldn't get cold.
Please see above. I loved the hotel and ambience, pool was a great bonus. I would have like to have been prepared for the very steep walk to the hotel from Sarlat.
Location was spectacular at top of hill so great view from brilliant pool. Room was very comfortable with aircon and a small outdoor sitting area. Accessible for old Sarlat, a town well with a visit
Breakfast buffet was very good, but would have preferred some fresh baguette rather than sliced bread. And big croissants rather than mini! Would have preferred a cafetiere of coffee for our table rather than a communal flask
When you stay at Hôtel Bon Encontre in Sarlat-la-Canéda, you'll be in the suburbs, within a 10-minute walk of Place de la Liberte and Manoir de Gisson. Free self parking is available onsite.
