First visit to France/Dordogne

Jump to last reply

We will be making our first ever visit to France at the end of May next year and staying 10 days in Sarlat in the Dordogne. We fly into Bordeaux on a Wednesday and should arrive in the town at about 4.30 - 5pm, I know there is a market on that day and was wondering if it will still be super busy at that time for us driving in and being able to park.
Neither of us speaks a word of French so we are going to be busy trying to learn at least some basic words and phrases in particular about filling up the car etc.
Our main queries are - are we likely to find restaurant menus (in Sarlat itself) in English as well as French?
How easy or difficult is parking in all the towns around that area?
Are fuel stations plentiful?
Is it right that you need to carry a breathalyser in your car and if so do the rental companies provide this?
Thank you in advance for any help or advice anyone can offer.
