Dordogne itinerary draft - Thank you for any input

Jump to last reply

I feel very obnoxious posting again. But you are so helpful! And this tiny region is completely overwhelming with things to do. Thank you in advance for any input.

Recap - one adult, two kids.
Pick up car in Brive. Will leave Dordogne for Languedoc via car. Trying to find a balance of stuff for me/kids.

I'm looking to know -
1. Am I missing anything I will regret?
2. The area is new to me and I am using tiny crappy internet maps. Want to group sights sensibly so we aren't driving in circles (lost and yelling at each other :) Do you see the days below as geographically sensible or would you change them?
3. Stu - what is the name of the birds of prey show? There are two.

T H A N K Y O U!
