Dordogne in February?

Jump to last reply

I need to use up vacation days and middle of February is the one that aligns with wife's. Last time we were in Dordone was 5 years ago during the early fall, stayed in rented gites at La Roque Gageac and have been wanting to revisit since. This time, we plan on Sarlat as our base for 5 nights.

Questions:

1. Is middle of February dreary/rainy/very cold in Dordogne?

2. Are the major sights/caves/chateau/restaurants closed? We've done most of the sights, mostly caves and chateau, before and would likely want to revisit two or three for this trip.
A relaxed trip with focus on wine and food (markets and restaurants) is our primary agenda this time. Are restaurants open during February?

Bonus Question (bonus points for answering):

3. A quick check on available flights show Toulouse as our best bet for entry point with noontime arrival. Planning on picking up rental car at Toulouse Blagnac Airport and spending 2 nights at Cahors (we've not visited before) before heading on to Sarlat. Would you say that Cahors would be my best bet for a 2-nighter before making the trek to Sarlat? Please feel free to recommend any other town that you feel would great to do before Sarlat.

Thanks in advance.
