Fine tuning by Dordogne/ Lot trip, suggestions?

Jump to last reply

I think I'm getting closer on my itinerary. To review, I will be participating in a garden tour August 31 to September 10. We will spend two nights in Bordeaux, six in Sarlat then a final night in St Emilion. Each day we will visit two gardens ( Marquessac, Colette, Cadiot, Eyrignac, Losse, etc.) we will also spend a day seeing Lascaux II and the the museum at Eyzies and we will have one free day.

Other than Sarlat and Carlux I don't think we will be touring any of the villages. So I decided to add four days to our trip. Our plan is to pick up a rental car in Libourne on Saturday morning and head back to the Dordogne. Here is what I am thinking now.

Saturday-pick up rental car in Libourne>Biron>Monpazier (maybe have lunch here)>Cadouin>Limeuil>overnight Tremolat.
Sunday- Castelnaud>Domme>La Roque> overnight La Cave. (Could do a late afternoon visit to Rocamadour)
Monday- or an early visit to Rocamadour>St Cere>Autoire>Loubressac >Carennac>Martel. Overnight La Cave. Seems like a lot. What should we definitely do and what should we leave out?
Tuesday- St Cirq La Popie> Pech Merle> Is Figeac too much since we have to drive on to Toulouse? > return rental car at Toulouse airport. Overnight Toulouse.
Wednesday - morning in Toulouse. Fly home midday.
I thought our free day in Sarlat ( we won't have a rental car) we might take a cab to Beynac, visit the village and take the boat ride) other suggestions?
