France - Dordogne - Help with Itinerary Please

Jump to last reply

Hi, I am hoping some experts out there can help me plan our 10 day trip in the Dordogne area. We intend spending some time in Paris, then visiting Normandy and St Malo and will head to the Dordogne after this for 10 days. (Should we try and see Bordeaux also?) We would like to rent a house and stay in a pretty, not-too-touristy village, that is a good base for exploring. Are we best to split the 10 x nights into two different areas, or stay in one place the whole time? I would think if we chose two different destinations for 5 x days each, we will be able to comfortably cover more ground, yet still be able to do it at a leisurely pace. We will hire a car. We are ok about driving in France, but prefer driving through villages, rather than on busy freeways. I would like to try and improve my French, so suggestions on how to do so,the would be helpful. Maybe we would be better staying with hosts who are happy to let me try to speak French?
Any suggestions on villages to consider would be great.
Thanks....bmps
