Petty theft from cars in Provence and Dordogne

Jump to last reply

Guide books and some posts state that you should not leave anything of value in your car in southern France. That is easy to say but when traveling between nightly stops I would like to do some site seeing, lunch stops, etc..

Specifically driving from Toulouse airport to Rocamadour I am thinking of stopping at Pech Merle or the town of Rocamadour with a car full of luggage.
After a one night stay I will be driving to Sarlat. On route I would like to stop at Gouffre de Padirac and Carennac ( also select from Martel, Castelnau, Loubressac, Autoire ).
On another travel day I would like to stop in Carassonne for a few hours.
On another travel day I would like to stop at Pont du Gard and possibly Les Baux and Uzes on the way to our stay in the Luberon.

I believe some luggage for the 5 of us will be exposed in the van/wagon I am renting. Are public parking lots safe from theft? Street parking in towns, Uzes? Am I being paranoid to be concerned? Your thoughts. Advice.
