Dordogne to somewhere else in France? or tDordogne to Northern Spain?

Jump to last reply

My wife, I and our good friends (we are 2 couples in our early 60's ... can't believe I just said that) are heavily into our almost annual "where are we vacationing in Europe this year" discussion. We'll have approximately 14 days in September, not counting the flights over and back from PHL (friends are in Northern VA.). Of a number of different possibilities, I'm leaning toward one that would include a week in Dordogne, and a second week either in another region of France - been to Paris, Provence, Burgundy and Normandy before, wouldn't at all mind returning to Provence - or, we could travel to Northern Spain, in and around San Sebastian and Basque Country. Two or three bases total for the trip.

We look for good food and wine, beautiful countryside, some unique museums and churches, a chance to mingle with locals, a small to medium-sized city nearby, more food and wine, and lots of relaxation after an unusually trying period in our personal lives for both couples. We're all fairly seasoned travellers, and have vacationed together at least two dozen times over the last 25 - 30 years.

St Cirq - I can't find your recommendation for which town to train to from Paris to Dordogne, could you please refresh my memory?

We could consider renting an apartment or cottage for the week in Dordogne, and we prefer small hotels or B&B for 3 -4 night stays. Have no problem driving in Europe, and also realize that renting a car in one country and dropping off in another is generally cost prohibitive.

Any recommendations for the first or second leg of this trip would be appreciated.
