Should I go to San Sebastian (Spain) or Sarlat (France) first in October?

Jump to last reply

This is a bit last minute, but I was waiting to see how my off-and-on arthritic knee was going to feel before booking a 3 or 4 week solo trip to these areas this October.

My main concern is avoiding the rain in San Sebastian as much as possible. Have never been there but understand it to be quite rainy in October. I'm not a beach goer, so I don't really care about swimming weather, just want to see the beautiful city and eat the beautiful food. So would really appreciate advice about where to go first--USA (LAX) to Madrid and then train to San Sebastian (or is it Bilbao?) FIRST in early October (want to avoid film festival crowds). OR go to Paris first for a few days and then to Sarlat by car for a couple of weeks, then to SS/Bilbao at end of October, then to Madrid for my plane home.

My impression from looking around online is that Sarlat/Dordogne is not as rainy as San Sebastian but if I'm wrong please tell me. If San Sebastian is equally rainy all month, I would probably go first to France, but if it really gets worse weather as month progresses, that would answer my question.

Would love any and all advice (places to stay, etc.) from those who are familar with both areas.

Gracias/merci/eskerrik asko
