The Dordogne- better to go in March or July?

Jump to last reply

I am trying to figure out whether it would be better to go to the Dordogne region in March (second half) or in summer - either July or August. Seems like weather would obviously be better in summer, but I've been reading about how crowded it gets. And small little towns tend to get overrun with tourists making it unpleasant. I generally go to Europe every summer but mostly go to mid to larger size towns/cities which tend to be less touristy. Plus crowds in a city don't tend to ruin the ambiance as much as in tiny villages. As for weather I don't care about temperatures as much as really wanting to avoid rain as much as possible.

So which would you choose?
