Considered one of Europe's best preserved medieval cities, Sarlat-la-Canéda seems almost like a movie set - and in fact plenty of period films have been shot amid its cobblestone streets, palaces, and in the nearby forests, mountains, and hamlets. Sarlat is also a gourmet mecca, with open-air markets full of regional specialities such as cabécou (goat cheese), foie gras, truffles, mushrooms, and much else. It's classified by the French government as a "Town of Art and History," and by the Michelin Guide as one of Europe's three most beautiful cities, due to its landscapes, culinary offerings, and cultural activities. It's a drive of just over two hours from Bordeaux.
