A relaxing moment in the heart of the Périgord Noir in one of the best guesthouses
The guesthouse in Dordogne
The history of our house in the Périgord Noir
Our guesthouse “Aux Bories de Marquay” is ideally located in a small hamlet, quiet, in the countryside in the heart of the Périgord Noir, less than 10 minutes from Sarlat, a superb medieval town listed as UNESCO heritage, including the visit by day and by night will not leave you indifferent.
The name of our guesthouse comes from the two magnificent bories remarkably preserved (borie: dry stone construction which could serve as a barn or stable, whose shape is reproduced on our logo).
It is the land of enchantment jealously marked by poets and that only they have the right to claim as their own. The closest thing to paradise.
