Dordoge base: Brantome or further south?

Jump to last reply

We'll be staying in the Dordogne for 5 days next June and would like to base ourselves in a quiet, picturesque place from which we can travel around the area (we will have a car). We've chosen a beautiful looking B&B in Brantome: the owner seems delightful and the accommodation is highly recommended by other travellers.

Now that I've looked more closely at the Fodor guide to the Dordogne, however, I'm worried that we'll be too far away from many of the places we'll want to see, all of which seem at least 1.5 hours further south, near and including Sarlat.

Should we look for a base that is closer to Sarlat and abandon Brantome? Any advice gratefully accepted!
