Dordogne/Provence trip (May 10-24)--how many days each?

Jump to last reply

After getting advice about splitting trip to one week in Dordogne and one week in Provence in previous thread, I realize that I'm not sure how many days of a week in Provence/Cote d'Azur to apportion to each, since my previous trip in the area was longer.

So my friend can get a good taste of all three areas--would really appreciate how many days for Dordogne (based in Sarlat), how many days in Provence (probably based in St. Remy) and how many around Nice (where she will fly back). I want to be nearish Nice, so I can continue on to French border town or over into Italy for another week or two after she leaves.

We will fly into Toulouse and have first night there, rent a car and reach Sarlat by second night. Right now it looks like 5 days in Sarlat for day trips, then one day spent driving to St. Remy--about 5-1/2 hours. Where do you suggest stopping for lunch?

Then we have 18-24th for Provence/Cote D. Should we just choose one area or the other maybe, or just stay a couple of nights somewhere in mid-Provence? Or forget the Riviera for this trip and maybe just stay overnight in Nice?

Thanks for your help, FFF gang!
