Our Trip to Paris and the Périgord is On Again

Jump to last reply

Finally, we are able to reschedule our postponed trip from last fall. We'll have a week in a rental near Sarlat, a quick look at Albi and Toulouse, then a week in Paris. I've been reading all the Fodorites' trip reports again and getting very excited.

We used most of our remaining Delta miles for FF tickets but had to settle for connections through Amsterdam in both directions to get them. This puts us into Paris too late to travel on, so we will overnight before taking the TGV to Angoulême where we pick up a car. Then we will drive to our rental via Brantôme, Bourdeilles and Périgueux.

We will have five full days in and around Sarlat (St.-Crépin) and I'll need some guidance as I try to work out an itinerary for this area that enables us to make the most of our limited time. The first hiccup occurred today when I got an answer to my reservation request for Font de Gaume saying that they will not take reservations in 2013. I have posted about this separately.

Another challenge could be our plan to travel to Toulouse via Albi on May 1. We'll overnight there and take the train back to Paris the next morning. I suppose we will find most things closed for the holiday, so we'll have to take a scenic route and enjoy the sights along the way. Hope to find a restaurant open in Toulouse for some good cassoulet.

Then we have six days in Paris to chip away at my "Paris Next Time" list that never seems to get shorter as I'm always adding to it.

I'll be back soon to benefit from the collected wisdom and experience here as I work on plans.
