Itinerary advice - Bordeaux and the Dordogne April 26-May 3, 2014

Jump to last reply

We (a couple in our early 60's) are (at the last minute) planning a trip in a couple of weeks to Bordeaux and the Dordogne. We arrive at the Bordeaux airport Saturday morning, April 26 and leave from there in the morning of Saturday, May 3.

So far, these are our plans and we welcome advice and suggestions. I just received Stu Dudley's fabulous Dordogne report and am in the middle of it but just thought I would post here before too much time goes by.

We planned to take public transportation into Bordeaux where we have reservations for 3 nights at L'Annexe de Gerald on Rue du Temple (have not yet sent a deposit). We plan to rent a car the morning of Tuesday, April 29 (probably Europcar) and leave Bordeaux for the Dordogne.

We thought of driving east, staying somewhere on Tuesday night and then 3 nights in the Sarlat area. We had planned to stay in Sarlat at La Lanterne, but Stu's report made me think of staying at the Belle Etoile in Roque Gageac. I have written them asking if they have a room available. We would like to be in a place where we don't have to drive at night to go to dinner because we like our wine and my husband gets tired of being in the car so much. Stu says there are good restaurants in Roque Gageac in addition to the one at the inn.

We thought we would stay close to the Bordeaux airport our last night as we have an early morning flight on Sunday May 3. We don't have a place selected yet. We also thought we would drop off the car at the airport Saturday night and take the free transportation to the airport hotel.

What we are interested in are museums, gardens, architecture, chateaux, and good food but not so much the prehistorical sites.

I have spent quite a bit of time perusing the forum for Dordogne suggestions and have learned quite a bit from all the generous contributors. I guess my questions right now are where to spend the extra night, are our accommodations good choices, are we spending too much or too little time in places, other thoughts.

Thanks so much for your help!
