Toulouse - Dordogne - Paris plans

Jump to last reply

I've read everything I can find on the forums about the Dordogne region and appreciate all the suggestions that have been made throughout the threads. Our trip will be the last week of March 2013. Here is the plan I've come up with - any input on how this sounds?
Tuesday around noon - Flight arrives in Toulouse, pick up rental car, drive to Sarlat or somewhere nearby where we would stay for 6 nights and use as a base for our daily adventures out into the surrounding area.
The following Monday - drive to Oradour-sur-Glane and walk around, Turn car in at Limoges and take the train from there to Paris.
My husband would really like to go to Normandy at some point. We could do it as a guided tour day trip from Paris OR instead of turning our car in at Limoges, we could continue driving to Caen (or somewhere up that way on Monday), tour the area on Tuesday, which seems like it would be much easier and pleasant to do with a car, and then turn the car in Tuesday night somewhere and take the train to Paris. Any suggestions on where to turn the car in?
Thanks again for all the great suggestions! Last year at the same time we went to Provence and made our home in Apt (La Madone -highly recommend these apartments) for the week. We loved going out each day and discovering new villages and markets. I think we could have the same sort of experience in Dordogne - do you think I'm correct in thinking that?
