Dordogne, Lot Valley and Gorge du Tarn Day Trips and Restaurants Ideas?

Jump to last reply

We are counting our days to our first trip to the Dordogne, Lot Valley and the Gorge du Tarn area. We have our itinerary and hotels all booked (except one day at the end). Thanks to everyone on the boards. Big thanks to Stu D. for starting us off with a great itinerary, with bases to stay, places to visit and answering my many questions. We've toured Europe over 15 years and know that what ever I plan will change and getting lost usually ends up being some of our better days. So other than the hotels, nothing is written in stone. I'm working on-line for day trips and restaurants. I have many trip reports from Fodorites.

Any tips on must see sights and restaurants would be great. We had originally planned two nights in Albi, then two nights in Rocamador before heading to Sarlat for five nights. Our apartment in Sarlat could only take us a day earlier, so we didn't want to spend only 1 night in Albi after an international flight. That was our only glitch. We're probably going to stay there before ending in Toulouse. Here's our plan so far.

Fly in and out of Toulouse - Car Rental with Auto Europe

Rocamadour - 3 nights (Hotel Les Esclargies - Booked)
Visit Rocamadour, Gouffre de Padirac, Autoire, Loubressac, Carennac, and Martel

Sarlat In Town- 5 nights (Villa des Consuls - Booked)
Villa des Consuls sent me 5 different maps for day trips. Any not to be missed sights would be appreciated.
Canoe Ride on the Dordogne
Wednesday Market Day

Figeac Area - 2 nights (Le Murier de Viels - Booked)
Visit Pech Merle next day 11:00 am reservations - Other sights to include with Pech Merle?

Tour Conques and Entraygues on the way to Estaing

Estaing/Lot River Area - 2 nights (Le Manoir de la Fabreques - Booked)
Visit Espalion, the Aubrec and Laguiole and Ste Eulalie

Ste Enimie/Gorges de Tarn - 2 nights (Auberge du Moulin - Booked)
Visit Gorge du Tarn
Boat Ride?

Carcassonne or Albi - 1 night??? Left this night open as we head from the Gorge du Tarn towards Toulouse

Toulouse - 2 nights - (Albert 1er - Booked)
Drop off car tour city

Thanks everyone!
