I just finished "cutting and pasting" lots of your trip report into a new document. I am bound and determined to return to the Dordogne and Languedoc in the near future.

I look forward to the conclusion. Thanks!

Hi Kansas and denisea and Tpayt and FMT and MaineGG and Michael and Winnick and Tedgale and Mr-Go and all:

I, too, just finished cutting and pasting this report for a Dutch friend who is going to the Dordogne next May! I relived the whole thing, and I must thank you all, even those I didn't name for you good comments, your additions to my report, and for your encouragement. This is a wonderful group of people, indeed!

I look forward to reading this report quite carefully tonight. We are thinking about going to Dordogne or Provence in Sept. DH feels Provence will be too similar to Tuscany and I am tending to agree. Finding the diversity of this area fascinating. Any thoughts along these lines for starters?

Wow can't believe I missed reading your report late last year. Brought back some great memories and I thoroughly enjoyed reading of your wonderful time in the Dordogne.
We loved it there!

Virginiafish: Late reply to your question. My experiences in Provence were mostly many years ago, starting in 1978, and I loved it all, but surely it has become more popular now.

That is also unfortunately true for the Dordogne also, in addition to Tuscany.

I would love to spend more time in the Dordogne, having had two trips 15 years apart. There is lots to see, and, as in any of these areas, if you take yourself off the beaten path, you will find treasures.

At the same time, you will have the benefit of travelers' experiences on this forum and others, when you travel to Tuscany, Provence, and Dordogne.

I speak French some, so it made the Dordogne a bit easier for me, but if I were you, I would also consider Northern Umbria.
