Questions about the Dordorgne in March

Jump to last reply

We are going to the Dordorgne this March. We have a few questions-mostly about restaurants. We are staying in an apartment in Sarlat but will have at least one meal a day out. At this point I am figuring some will be lunches while we are touring since opening hours and daylight hours are shorter now. Dining out is one of our major joys in traveling to France. We are adventuresome eaters and enjoy trying new wines.

First we are taking the train from Paris to Brive and of course arrive at 1PM. The car rental place is closed until 2PM. Is there a decent restaurant within walking distance (walking with roller bags!) of the train station in Brive? Also on the drive from Brive where is there a grocery store where we can obtain provisions for the apartment?

One day we are planning on going to the Prehistory museum in Les Eyzies-de-Tayac. The restaurants I have seen mentioned are not open at this time of year. The only two I see that are open are Le Cro Magnon (sounds tacky but we are game) or La Metairie. Any information on these two or another suggestion?

We are planning to go to Les Jardins de Marqueyssac and Les Jardins d'Eyrignac. We understand they won't be at their best at this time of year but is it best to skip them now and plan a trip in the growing season.

Several of the restaurants we see are open in Sarlat are: Le Grand Bleu, Les Peyrouses, Le Quatre Saisons and Rossignol. Probably we will have two night for dinner in Sarlat-one being Saturday evening. Which of these should we not miss?

On the tours we are planning we will have lunch in Le Roque-Gageac or Domme. The restaurants that are open there are : Auberge La Plume D'Oie, Le Perigord and Les Pres Galliardou and L'Esplanade or Cabanoix et Chataigue. Best picks among these restaurants?

One place that we are planning on going to is La Gabarre in Saint-Julien-de-Lampon.

We are planning on going to Lascoux II and writing to Font de Gaume to try to get an English tour there. Unfortunately Pech-Merle is closed at this time of year. Any others that should not be missed?

TIA.
