Planning four days in the Dordogne, based in Sarlat

Jump to last reply

Looking for you Dordogne experts to give me some tips as to how to arrange our four day stay. We arrive from Paris to Brive at 13:00 (on June 27 )so I figure by the time we get the car, drive to Sarlat, etc we should just plan the afternoon (what’s left of it) and evening in Sarlat. Then we’ll have 3 full days/nights. After which we drive to St Remy.

Castlenaud, Beynac, Domme, La Roque – we tend to get started fairly early – on the road by 9, could do 8 if it makes a difference. Which order to do them in for best light (I’m a photographer) and less crowds? How much time total to see these towns?

Monpazier – Do you think we would have time to also do this on the same day? How about Chateau de Biron? What about Chateau Montfort? Looks like this is east of Domme, would that just be a drive by at the start of the day?

For the second day we’d like to see Rocamadour and probably St Cirq Lapopie. I’ve heard mixed things about Cahors but I would really love to at least look at the bridge. Chateau Bonagil – is that ‘worth it’? And could that be combined with the others on this day?

So – do you think we have two or three days outlined here? We do have three full days so can spread it out, or add in something else.

Any tips as to how to combine them, which order to see them in, which really need to be done as early as possible in the day to avoid crowds, etc.

Any other suggestions also welcome. Thanks
