Dordogne - Provence itinerary help

Jump to last reply

I am hoping I can get some advice on traveling between Dordogne and Provence this summer.

I am wondering if there is one region that makes sense to start in? I can fly into Paris and take a train to Bordeaux and drive to Sarlat or can fly directly to Marseille and then onto the provencal countryside. I plan on renting a car in both regions.

Is it easier to drive between regions or train? I understand that there are no direct trains but is it worth it to have transfers than undertaking an 8 hour car ride? If we decide to take the car is it a pretty and reasonably simple drive?

Thank you!
