Le Temps Retrouvé has a one and a half century rich history. We endeavoured to wake up this sleeping beauty that is so uniquely located in Sarlat!

Built in 1881 then enlarged in 1922, we undertook in 2021 a big restoration with a local architect and local artisans, to rehabilitate and magnify this heritage house. Although modern comfort was added, the charm of the old is reminded by an occasional creak here and there!

Besides their own rooms, guests have access to all living spaces on the ground floor with their original features. Choose between the library, the living room, the dining room or the veranda to read, to listen to music, to have a drink, to meet with friends, to interact with us or other guests and of course to have breakfast ...

Le Parc


The park at Le Temps Retrouvé was designed around the same period when the house was built.

The hillside terraces were originally dedicated to grow fruits and vegetables and also served as vineyards. All levels possess impressive old stone walls. The park today gathers a majestic collection of trees - some more than 100 years old.

While keeping its original shape, we partly let nature get its way. It holds many corners with different moods and views. In this lung of greenery there are multiple spots to isolate or observe the flora and fauna while being a stone's throw away from Sarlat's Cathedral.

le Spa


For the relaxation of body and mind, Le Temps Retrouvé offers a 25m 2 spa. It is equipped with a cedar wood sauna, a hammam with essential oils and a  jacuzzi placed under a "sparkling galaxy" sky ...

Accessible by reservation for 1 to 4 people.

Prices: more info



The dry sauna has a temperature of 65° C. The cabin accommodates 2 people seated under a ceiling of 190 cm in heigth.

The intense heat accelerates the sweating process and thus the elimination of toxins while purifying the skin and softening the muscles!



The natural stone steam bath offers 2 seats in a small cabin where the temperature rises up to 45° C.

The steam combined with essential oils provide you with soothing benefits: clear sinuses, relax muscles and dilate the pores of the skin!



An immersion in a hot 37° C whirlpool produces relaxing effects by hydrotherapy: it stimulates blood circulation and has a positive impact on digestive disorders, cellulite or heavy legs.

The spa has 2 lying places and the sparkling milky way above!



With hot weather, you may want to refresh in the 4 by 9m swimming pool. Only heated naturally by the sun, its temperature may rise up to 24/25° in the middle of summer.

Free access to all our guests from mid-May to mid-September from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Le Temps Retrouvé is the fruit of a longstanding relationship that started in 2003. After our first B&B Bouchardon experience in our Parisian apartment between 2010-2015, we now wanted to welcome our guests in a house with a bucolic setting, while enjoying, the urban life and its amenities, only a few steps away.

Thus, began the adventure Le Temps Retrouvé in Sarlat, jewel of the Périgord Noir!
