Bruges-Paris-Dordogne Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello all,
I'm in the early stage of sketching out an itinerary. First of all I need to ask if it would better to travel to the Dordogne in June or September? I can do it either time. I've heard the weather can be better in fall, but not sure if my source is correct.

I'm planning to use public transit & private guides. I just don't want to drive by myself in a foreign country. I've traveled solo many times -- always using trains/ buses (and sometimes local guides in minivans). I've never been to the Dordogne.

Fly into Brussels, train to Bruges 2 or 3 nights

Paris -- 3 or 4 nights

Chenonceaux (the town - next to the famous chateau - I've never been there) 2 nights

Sarlat --4 or 5 nights
(hire a private driver/guide to visit Beynac, La Roque Gageac, Chateau des Milandes, Domme, Font du Gaume -- etc.

Carcassonne (maybe-not sure) 2 nights.
Fly out Toulouse.

(After Previewing my post just now, it struck me that I may not have much fun touring the Dordogne region with a local guide. Hmmm.)
