Dordogne, France

We are traveling in the Dordogne, France, area in September, hoping to be based in Surlat. We will have a two-year old with us and wish to spend our time enjoying local sites, flavors, people, etc. Any suggestions for activities, not-to-be-missed towns, villages, etc. would be welcome. We will have a car.

I highly recommend the Green Guide on the region. There are tonnes of things to see. Sarlat is amazing, Domme, Roque Gageac, Rocamadour, Beynac are all fabulous.

That would be the Michelin Green Guide for the Dordogne. Very, very useful.

Domme has a lovely public garden with a playground. Buy an ice cream cone from the Belvedere restaurant, then walk down the promenade to the garden. Late afternoon is especially beautiful, because you'll see the long shadows all throughout the valley.

Thanks for the recommendations. We are also looking for a place to stay for a week. The idea would be a 2-bedroom apartment in Surlat. Villa de Consuls was recommended but is booked up.

We have secured a place in the Dordogne area and are now looking for someplace in Paris for only 2-3 nights. We would, of course, like something central, near a metro. As I said, we'll have a two-year-old with us. If we could find a 2-bedroom hotel suite that would be perfect - perhaps in the $200-300 per night range.
