Michelin Green Guide ratings--Aquitaine, Dordogne, la Rochelle

Jump to last reply

For our three week trip next month I am still trying to figure out a couple possible itineraries (they'll be weather dependent) between our arrival point in Bordeaux and our departure point in Toulouse. I have drawn an imaginary triangle with Archachon at the coast on the south and la Rochelle at the coast on the north and Toulouse as the three points. Then I took my Michelin Green Guides to these areas and made lists of how they rated places. This is how it ended up looking. Do you agree with these ratings? With the time we have available to us, should we strive to focus on these more highly rated places rather than the places that just got a * for "interesting"? Obviously, rating is subjective and a person/people created these ratings for Michelin, but I am wondering whether most people would agree with the Green Guides' ratings.

*** Highly Recommended
Bordeaux
La Rochelle
La Palmyre Zoo (this is the one *** that I'm quite certain we won't visit)
Dordogne Valley
Sarlat
Dordogne Lotoise Valley (a little east of my triangle)
Rocamadour (a little east of my triangle)
Peche Merle (a little east of my triangle)
Toulouse
Albi (a little east of my triangle)
