Driving from Chenonceaux to Sarlat-la-Caneda - any stops recommended?

Jump to last reply

We'll be driving one day in July from Chenonceaux in the Loire Valley to La Roque Gageac in Dordogne, which is about 4.5 hours drive on A20/E9 according to Google maps.
More important localities along the route seem to be: Levroux, Argenton-sur-Creuse, La Souterraine, Limoges, Uzerche, Brive-la-Gaillarde. I know almost nothing about these places. We could make it a full day trip, if it's worth stopping along the way, or drive straight to Dordogne, check in early at the hotel, and spend the full afternoon/evening in the village.
Are there any interesting places to see/things to do on this route, other than in Loire Valley and Dordogne? Anything that we shouldn't miss? Our main interests are wineries and quaint, beautiful villages, but any suggestions will be considered. And of course we would stop for a quick lunch anyway, but where?
Many thanks and happy travels!
