Driving from Ambose to Oradour-Sur-Glane and ultimately Sarlat

Jump to last reply

We will drive from Amboise to Oradour-Sur-Glane the first day. It is approximately a 3 hour drive. We will have visited 2 or three chateaux at this point in the trip. Please advise on options.

Plan A: Drive through Villandry or Azay-le-Rideau for one more Chateau(This also adds about 40 minutes drive time.). This would make a late afternoon arrival in Oradour -Sur -Lane. The historic site is open until 7:00 p.m. We could go and visit, but that seems like a lot in one day.

We are staying in a lovely B&B. We can have dinner there if we choose. Do you have dinner recommendations for the area?

Queston: Would it be better to just to enjoy the drive, skip the one more chateau, and go on to Oradour-Sur-Lane?

Plan B: Take time to stop for the extra chateau time and arrive late. Visit Oradour - Sur -Gland the next morning. We had planned to go through Limoges and tour a couple of hours there. I have been reading forum comments and I'm not sure we want to spend time there??? Either way we will drive on to Sarlat that day, drive time from Oradour - Sur-Glane to Sarlat,
1 hour 45 minutes.

The choice is to arrive early in Sarlat or spend some time in Limoges and arrive late.

Queston: Take time for Limoges or drive on to Sarlat?

We want to see and experience as much as we can. But I understand that France is a place to stop and just relish being there and the area around you. Although, I'm not sure that this is the area to linger. I apologize for my lack of knowledge about travel in France, I count on those of you who have been blessed to visit, revisit, and become at home with this area.

Thank you.
