Bordeaux or Dordogne?

Jump to last reply

Well, not really "Bordeaux or Dordogne", but.... I have spent hours reading countless opinions on this forum as well as others, hence my quandry. We are a family of 4 with two 16 year old girls. We had originally decided on a lovely gite in Beynac with terrific views, close to everything and parking! Then, the family began to question the amount of traffic, crowds and heat expected in August - we would not have a pool, nor A/C. We are also worried that our planned day trips will include greulling struggles with traffic and queues. We could manage this for a few days, but if too difficult would most likely stay put in Beynac. And, remember, we have 2 teenagers, who can only explore so much before their boredom becomes our problem. My husband and I are perfectly happy with a glass of wine, a beautiful patio and nowhere to go. But, we are a family and everyone has a vote. So, here's the proposal we are contemplating. Do we spend all 12 days stationed in Beynac, with day trips most days, but not all, or should we consider splitting our time between Beynac and staying in downtown Bordeaux to enjoy 5 nights of city life? Are the streets of Bordeaux that crowded in August? I saw one picture with thousands of people, shoulder to shoulder, but I'm hopeful that was for a football/soccer match! Of course, if anyone has an alternative to consider, we welcome the insight.
