Is a 3 night reconnaissance trip to Sarlat worth it?

Jump to last reply

I've got a couple extra days to fill in mid-Oct. between Bordeaux and a rental car drop off in the Moissac/Montauban area of the Garonne. At some point we want to take a slow, extended trip to the Dordogne area but don't have the time on this trip.One thought I have is to fit in a 3 night stay in Sarlat. This would give us a little more than two days to see the town and perhaps scope out the surrounding area a bit so I'd have some familiarity for planning a future trip where we'd want to do a week long rental in the area. Plus, we'd be there for the Wednesday market. Is this really and truly an exceptional market (for foodstuffs)?

Viamichelin tells me it will take 2.5 to 3 hours to get to Sarlat from Bordeaux, and perhaps 2.5 hours from Sarlat to get to where we need to drop off our rental car.

I know that going to Sarlat means driving further north than the direction we plan to go, but there seems to be nothing that really calls to me in the southerly direction between Bordeaux and the Moissac/Mountauban area. Plus, we will be doing a leisurely cruise of the Garonne Canal so we'll see all of that later anyway.

In this context, is Sarlat a dumb idea? Thanks.
