Please critique my Dordogne & Lot valley itinerary

Jump to last reply

I am seeking Fodorite suggestions and comments regarding our itinerary. I love trip planning!

My husband and I are in our late 50's and reasonably active. We are interested in sightseeing and we like to get out into the countryside and go for long walks. We want to see Lascaux and Font-de-Gaume. We have been to France a few times, most recently to Paris and Provence in 2009. We love to have wonderful food and wine. Is it true duck is featured on every menu in this region? Lol, I don't mind duck but hopefully not every day.

We fly into Barcelona where we are spending several days then plan to travel by train into France on May 7th, 2014. I am thinking Toulouse for one night. As my research shows it is a national holiday on May 8th, I thought we'd pick up our car either upon arrival at the train station in Toulouse on the 7th or the 8th if the rental office is not closed that day.

Where to stay in Toulouse? Near the train station might be handy.

Our next reservations will be in the Lot valley at Mas de Garrigue, recommended highly for beautiful accommodation, nice surroundings, and in-house meals that according to our friends who stayed there are fabulous.

Just not too sure what to do after this... thinking of going to Sarlat area to stay at L'Ombriere which is about 18 minutes away. It has great reviews on Tripadvisor. I'm wondering if it would be better to stay right in Sarlat though. It might be nice to be able to just walk to a restaurant for dinner rather than having to drive at night.

Last question. Is it best to drop the car at Brive la Gaillarde and take the train to Paris (our next destination).

Thank you very much for any suggestions or advice you have to offer.
