After the Dordogne, where to go?

Jump to last reply

I need some help, I've become paralyzed by the choices!

By way of background, last year we had three glorious weeks starting in Toulouse and winding our way through Carcassone, Figeac, Albi, Rocamadour and ending with a week in Sarlat before going to Paris.

We loved driving the Cele and Lot valley, the honey coloured houses with blue gray shutters, mist rising from the valleys in the morning, the view from castlenaud down the river valley, walnut groves, Peche merle, our apartment in Sarlat, boat trip on the Dordogne, beautiful and charming villages, and lagavullin and macallan at a ridiculous price at the Casino in Sarlat!

We thought this year we might do Provence, but airfare is about $300 more per person than Paris, Madrid or Edinburgh, so we've eliminated that. Also eliminated Scotland because of the strong £, so our distillery tour will have to wait for another year.

We'll have a maximum of three weeks in September or October. We've been back and forth between Normandy and Brittany and Madrid and northern Spain. John is willing to drive, but not along cliff edges.

To complicate things, we're open to just about anything.

Any thoughts to help me decide would be most gratefully appreciated.
