Languedoc, Dordogne & Bordeaux Itinerary Expert Help Please

Languedoc, Dordogne & Bordeaux Itinerary Need Expert Help Please

We’re getting closer on our itinerary for the Languedoc Region, Dordogne Area and Bordeaux trip in September. We’re planning on 2 ½ weeks, flying either in and out of Toulouse, or in to Toulouse and out of Bordeaux depending on cost of flights. We will rent a car. We’re a young 60/50 ish couple who have been to Europe many times, but mostly Spain, Italy, Portugal, Austria and Germany. Regarding France, we have been to the Cote d’Azur, Provence (as far west as St Remy) and Paris. We love sight-seeing by car, little villages, castles, cave, the people and most of all local food.

I would appreciate any advise on if this itinerary is too aggressive and any suggestions on more or less time spent in each area. Any suggestions on hotels or B&B is also appreciated. We did have help from an associate who has family in the Languedoc Region. Here is what they suggested.

Fly into Toulouse

Toulouse - 2 nights

Carcassonne - 1 or 2 nights (hotel or B&B in or outside walls?)

Montpeillier Area - Aigues Mortes as a base for 3 nights

Travel via Millau Bridge towards Dordogne - 1 night Gorge du Tarn or Millau (this area may require more time and perhaps best to do on another trip)

Dordogne Region - Sarlat-la-Caneda 5 nights (day trips to Rocamadour, Grottes de Lascaut, Les Eyzies, castles etc.)

Bordeaux Area - 5 nights (2 nights in Arcachon and 3 nights in Bordeaux recommended by our friends from France)

That’s 18 days, a bit too much and more moving around than we are use to. We’d like to have some diversity and usually like 4 bases for 3 - 4 nights. Should we skip Bordeaux and save it for another trip? You’re expert advise is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
