A few comments from a resident Perigourdine - the little non-frog's legs you ate at the Meynardie were almost certainly quail's legs/thighs. they often serve them there, and they are much smaller than frog's legs.

We actually like Figeac a lot, because it is not so touristy as Sarlat (living 15 minutes away we are in and out of Sarlat several times a week, and still love it, but in the summer it's a little hard to take) To us, Figeac is somewhat the way Sarlat was before it was quite so restored. In fact we were on a tour of Figeac a few years ago, and the guide said that they have never had the same amount of money that Sarlat received. And so their approach was to try to restore houses for people to live in, rather than to restore them exactly as they were 400 years ago. This means that they were eligible for housing grants, at a time when the restoration grants were not so plentiful. Particularly in the spring /summer/autumn it's a lovely place. A little triste in the winter though.
