Dordogne village for 1 week holiday? Limeuil or Daglan

Jump to last reply

Hello, I am finding it really hard to make a decision on a 1 week holiday villa rental in the dordogne for May and a I thought a few of you may be able to help.. hoping StCirq will also see this for advice please :-).
Here is our brief..
Three women (my mother, aunt and myself) + my one year old son
Travelling from Australia and driving a hire car from Bordeaux
After a beautiful relaxing week in traditional french countryside close to village (walk ideally or bike). Not too touristy or big (Sarlat etc).
Original plan was to stay in Paunat (on recommendation from a friend), however can't find reasonable accommodation there.
We have two current options;
Limeuil - 600metres from the village and a beautiful house
Daglan - 4 km from the village in a beautiful restored farmhouse www.thethums.com. So would need bikes to get into town if others take the car for sight seeing etc. A bit further away from where we originally wanted to be, but also closer to Sarlat.
My mother wants to visit all the touristy spots near Sarlat. Daglan looks closer, but then further away from Bordeaux...
What is a nicer area to stay in? Or would you recommend another area to the two options about?
Really appreciate any advice you have.
Many thanks MJ
