Hi--thanks in advance to the Fodors community for your help. As part of a 12-day-long Paris-Dordogne-Loire trip planned for next June/July, I'd like to ask for some assistance with the Dordogne section. Do you think this will be too rushed?


*Day 1--Arrive in Brive from Paris around 1:00, pick up rental car, drive to Sarlat and explore the town. Stay at Manoir de la Malatrie in Vezac.


*Day 2--See Gardens of Marqueyssac, have lunch at Gardens. Tour Chateau de Beynac, and La Roque Gageac. Have dinner at La Belle Etoille in La Rocque.


*Day 3--Three-and-a-half hour canoe trip with Canoes Loisirs in Sarlat, starting from Vezac. Return to hotel for relaxation and time at the pool. Tour Chateau Milandes and catch 4:30 falconry show. Sunset balloon ride.


*Day 4--9 am tour of Rouffignac cave, then on to Cave Font-de-Gaume. Lunch at de Laugerie Basse and then to Lascaux II. The pre-history museum may be a possibility this day, also.


*Day 5--Drive to Libourne, drop off rental car, catch 11:30 train to Tours.


Is this too much of a whirlwind? Should I add a day to the Dordogne?
