A whole lot of France and a bit of Spain

After a few months of wrangling, we've finally nailed down the general outline of our September vacation. We start with a full week in the Dordogne, based at this hotel in Sarlat.

Then 4 nights in the Basque Region here:

We really were looking to be in Spanish Basque, but there is a film festival going on in San Sebastian during our time in the area, and hotel rooms are in greater demand than usual. Those that are available seem to have jacked-up their prices. We found many more options in our comfort zone over the border, and I think this place is close enough to get to anywhere we need to in Spanish or French Basque Country.

Our final 4 nights are in the Pays de la Loire Region, at this Chateau.

We will be close to La Rochelle and Ile de Re. We have a fairly full slate of things to see and places to go during our first two stops, but we need to fill in some detail for the last area. Any suggestions on some great towns, markets, and historical sights to visit, nice drives, and great places to eat, not only in this area but all 3, would be greatly appreciated.
