Sarlat or Beynac for about a week? Which do you prefer?

Jump to last reply

Hi

We'll have six or seven nights for this area.

We can't get into Sarlat until Saturday afternoon, early October. Beynac Friday if we wish, at the Petite Versaille.

Sarlat appeals because there will be more walkable places to eat at night, a good thing if the driver chooses to sample the wines!

Beynac because it looks beautiful, and a nice place to unwind after a busy day. Nice place to canoe to and from, provided the weather's good, and the rental places are still open.

One concern is the driver has a thing about driving on the edge of a cliff...no scary Alps for us unless someone else has the wheel. It's not the grade of the hill, it's hugging the edge, that terrifies the both of us. Maybe blinkers would help :)

I'm hoping someone can let me know if that's an issue getting to and from Beynac.

We'll be leaving on a Friday am train to Paris from Brive, so we'll have to get there in good time.

Practically, is one easier to get to each day after being out and about,

(It may be decided for me, the Sarlat rental is not responded to my last email...)
