Help please with free night in Aveyron area

Jump to last reply

I am in the midst of making hotel reservations for our trip to France for September 2013. We are traveling with friends, so I wanted to firm up room reservations since we will need 4 rooms at each place.

So far, we will arrive in Montpellier and stay for 2 nights. Then we move on to the Gorge du Tarn area, and will stay at Chateau de la Caze for 3 nights. These 5 nights are confirmed. Then we have 3 nights that I had "planned" to stay at Hotel Le Vieux Pont in Belcastel. The plan was to visit Conques, Figeac, Peyrousse le Roc, and Villefranche de Rouergue from this base. And perhaps we would see Albi at this time. This will be followed by 6 nights in Sarlat, which is also confirmed, by the way. Our last night before the flights home will be spent in Toulouse.

We leave Chateau de la Caze on a Monday morning. I just discovered that the Hotel in Belcastel is closed on Sunday and Monday nights. The plan was to stay here for a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night. So, what to do??? Four nights at the Chateau seems like a bit much. Should I nix the Hotel in Belcastel altogether and stay somewhere else for these three nights? Or find another place for Monday night and then check into Hotel Le Vieux Pont for Tuesday and Wednesday nights before moving on to the Sarlat area. any suggestions if I did find another place for just one night? I did love the idea of staying in Belcastel...sigh...

There is a place that looks nice in Villefranche de Rouergue, but it only has 3 rooms and we need 4 rooms.

I would love some advice! I have a reputation of being a "great trip planner" that I do not want to lose. Of course, I always tell my friends that it is the people here on Fodors who make good trips happen.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions you may have.

Rosemary
