The animations for young and old

Sarlat is also two covered rink s for fun even if it rains (Place of the Great Rigaudie). You can rent skates at your size, or bring your own.

Come with your family, all day during the holidays, the toy library organizes activities for children and workshops, there is also a circuit of small cars and small shows. You can take a horse- drawn carriage ride , admire the artists who are walking in the market and also concerts and carols.

Do not forget to take a selfie on the sign for this purpose at the entrance of the Christmas Market, as in a snow ball and ... to deposit your letter in the mailbox of Santa Claus ! And come to see him, in his cottage (the children are always amazed).

Give yourself a treat, such as a pancake, a cotton candy, macaroons, grilled chestnuts or a love apple ... This is the perfect place to enjoy these deliciously regressive sweets ...
