Located within a golden triangle between the Dordogne and Vézère, which enclose it like a delta, Sarlat, the capital of Black Périgord, is black like the truffle - the black diamond - like the holm oaks that cover its hills, or the freshly ploughed earth of its fertile valleys. This place really seems to have been blessed by the gods. Sarlat, whose rich cultural life and gastronomy match the beauty of its side streets lined with old ochre stone houses, can be explored all year round, throughout the seasons.
