August is usually the first month to be booked, and this year is no exception. There’s just one family yurt week left, and some availability in the couple’s yurt.

But as I’ve said before, June and September are excellent months to be here. Almost all the tourist attractions are open, it’s more than warm enough (especially for British people), and the crowds and traffic that occasionally appear in the summer are non existent.

Anyone staying over the weekend of June 20th and 21st will also get to experience the Fête de la Musique – France’s annual free festival. Every town takes part, with live bands, dancing, and plenty of food and drink. If you’re up for a 50-minute drive, you could even see my band SouthWest take over Sarlat town centre for our biggest public gig of the year.

The exchange rate is still fantastic, so come on down/up/across/over.
