I have four nights to enjoy between my long stay in Sarlat and the Dordogne,, before fly away
from Bordeaux. I will have already have been north of the Dordogne,including Rochelle etc. Any wonderful places you can suggest?

Hi hum,

You can easily spend 4 days around Bordeaux.

We will be visiting in the Fall. We are planning on staying in St. Emilion -one day for St. Emilion, one day for Bordeaux, one daytrip to Arcachon and the ocean.

You could add a day for a winery visit.

Try Toulouse and its area, including Montauban, Albi and Moissac. You should be able to get a direct train from Toulouse to Bordeaux.

During your long stay in the Dordogne will you visit the Figeac/St-Cirq-Lapopie/Pech-Merle area? If not, it would be a pleasure to wander around that area for a few days.

Or head a bit farther south to Castelnaud-le-Montmiral/Revel/Albi/Gaillac/Cordes, etc.

Or as mentioned St-Emilion, then Arcachon, Cap Ferret, the Dune de Pylat, etc., maybe combined with a winery tour or two.

I meant my email name to imply that I am just another human being, but I did get a kick out of Ira's impliction that I might be a humming-one! Thanks for all your ideas but...I have already spent significant time in all the places mentioned, including Bordeaux itself. Any ideas south of the road D936/D660 between Beynac and St.Emilion. I know this is very specific, but I am hoping for treasures anyway.

Have you canoed? We did a four day trip from Soulliac to Beynac staying in great little hotels and eating extraordinary food along the way.

Hi hum,

Try this link
http://www.ot-sarlat-perigord.fr/

You will get brochures that list driving trips that might interest you.

Also see www.tourisme-aquitaine.info

>Any ideas south of the road D936/D660 between Beynac and St.Emilion.<

The Michelin Green Guide has a recommended day drive of Cadouin, St. Avit, Ste-Croix, Monpazier, Biron, Villereal, Beaumont, Lanquais, St-Front, Cadouin.

They give a * to Bergerac, Monbazillac and Bridoire.

Can't help West of Bergerac.

Monpazier, Issigeac, Monbazillac, Villefranche-du-Périgord, Beaumont, Villeréal........BUT, it's just not as pretty "down there."
