Dordogne to Toulouse May 1

Jump to last reply

We will drive from near Sarlat (St. Crépin) to Toulouse on May 1st, a major national holiday. I know that many things will be closed, so trying to figure out how to make the best use of this day. Of course, weather could be a factor, but if it's a nice day, we would like to take the most scenic route that would get us there mid-afternoon or so. According to mappy, the fastest and most direct route would only take two hours, so adding a few hours would not be a problem.

Any suggestions? Should we head for Figeac then Cahors or Albi? Are there other especially interesting or picturesque spots along the way? I know there are many helpful folks here who know this area well, so hoping for some guidance.
