Dordogne: Oradour -Sur-Glane to Sarlat to Figeac

Jump to last reply

This is the Dordogne leg of our driving trip.

Dordogne:

We will drive from Oradour-Sur-Glane on a Thursday (departing around noon?), destination Sarlat. Michelin’s route takes us through Limoges and Brive, to Sarlat.

DAY 1: THURSDAY
**Thursday is market day Terrrasson la Villedieu, we could come through there. I know it will be crowded late in the day.
**Visit Grotte de Font-de-Gaume (This will also not be an early arrival, but later in the day. It is also July!)

I realize that there will not be a lot of time on this driving day (Thursday). But I was hoping there would be a logical route and stop/stops that made sense.

I have Stu Dudley’s Dordogne itinerary. I’ve read Rick Steve’s suggested itinerary. And I have read Fodor’s forum on this area. I think that drive times are not exactly right through Michelin, as I’ve read in July it is crowded and traffic slow. There is a lot of information and I need a kick start to know how to organize.

DAY 2 & 3: FRIDAY-SATURDAY
**Friday and Saturday - We will then have 2 full days in Sarlat. We want to do a canoe ride and explore the area. Sarlat’s market day is Saturday. We can make it there with the early start recommended, maybe the canoe ride for the afternoon? Maybe caves on Friday? How would you plan this time?

DAY 4 & 5: SUNDAY-MONDAY
Sunday and Monday, will be in Figeac for 2 nights. Sunday we will depart from Sarlat for the drive to Figeac, I thought on Sunday we could possibly go through Rocamadour.
We will have Sunday and most of the day Monday for this area.

We will depart on the 2 hour drive to Albi Monday afternoon - maybe a stop in Cahors along the way.

I realize that I am asking a great deal of you. I’ve tried to outline it clearly. Pick and choose, I appreciate any nugget of information and advice that you can offer.
