Dordogne in June - TWO bases?

Jump to last reply

We're planning a 2 week trip in June, with 4 days in Paris and the rest in the Dordogne. I think Sarlat would be a good base for us, but wonder about spending 5 or 6 nghts there and 4 or 5 nights..... somewhere else, where it's easier to see other towns.

I've seen suggestions for Albi (not strictly in the Dordogne, right?), Beynac, St-Cyprien.... What might be a good second base? Or should we stay the whole 10 days in Sarlat?

I'm thinking we'll fly into Paris, train to somewhere to get a car. We'll train back to Paris and spend our last 4 nights there, so we don't have to worry about driving far the day we need to catch a plane (been there, done that).

Thanks as always,
Alice
