Great little manor house with lovely items intact and looking as though the Lord and lady just went to church. Fantastic items of curiosity. When in Sarlat, make a visit. It takes about 40 mins.

We enjoyed spending an hour in this old mansion that looks as though the owners just went out to church. All furniture is in perfect state and one really gets a feel of what life was like in the olden days

If you are in Sarlet you should visit. Pick up a guide in your language and just stroll around the house. Very relaxed and informative.

I really enjoyed walking thru this place, BUT the current owner has put so much stuff into the rooms I found it distracting. Just too many things, in Fact our hotel in a building of the same vintage was done better.More

Our hostess recommended this place for us and we found it quite charming. A pleasant relief from stuffy museums, the most interesting was the recreation of the "curiosity rooms" with interesting finds from all over the world.

From the outside this looks like a pretty insignificant building, but once inside - wow! It shows how the other half lived. The rooms are packed full of interesting things, furniture etc.
