We Love Hospitality! It's What We're Good At
Salazar has been open since 2000 and we pride ourself on the care and attention we put into all our customer holidays. From welcome to goodbye, every aspect of your holiday is important to us.
We know the area like the back of our hand - from the best restaurants to eat at, to the best places to visit, so rest assured, we've got you covered.
Ever thought about "living the dream". Well, we went one stage farther - in July 2000 my French husband Bernard and I started out on our adventure. Originally hoping to move to Spain from Bourne End in Bucks we finally ended up here in South West France, about half way between Bergerac and Toulouse in a little known area called "Quercy".
Did we buy a little house and settle down to French village life - no of course we didn't. We bought a huge run down watermill, sitting on five acres of grounds looking somewhat sad and forlorn.
We must have been mad. Well, perhaps just a little. To be truthful we bought it because Bernard dreamed of owning a watermill and I liked the river beach and fishing pool.
So we turned it into a lovely "home from home" retreat. I have now lived here long enough to know the region well, to be able to point you in the right direction for restaurants, shops, bars and where to go and what to see.
I have never forgotten the first time I saw my Salazar, looking out over the river beach, hearing the trickle of the water and seeing my first kingfisher, and I can promise that you will never forget your first time here either
We Think We're Great! But Don't Just Take Our Word For It
Our favourite holiday paradise

It’s our 3rd visit and it’s coming home. We are relaxed sitting either by the pool or looking over the river watching the wildlife and nature drift by. Paulette never changes and makes this home from home. Fab country side and eatery’s.
A beautiful retreat
This is an extremely beautiful place to stay. It's an old watermill, with gorgeous surrounding gardens, fields and water, where time really does stand still. The apartments are spacious and comfortable, allowing it to be a place where you can really relax. The host, Paulette, is superb. She looks af...
