Sarlat to Geneva - drive straight, stop over, or take the train??

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling from Sarlat to Geneva in November and was wondering if anyone has advice on the best way to go. I will have a rental car and could either drive to Geneva and return it there, or return it in Sarlat then take the train. However, the schedules that I've been able to find seem to indicate a 10-12 hour train ride whereas the driving time is 6-7 hours. Also, I'm traveling with 2 kids so there would be 3 train tickets to purchase. Another negative about the train is arriving in Geneva late in the evening. From Geneva, we plan to take a train to Zermatt so I'd rather not arrive late at night and have to deal with transferring to a hotel then going back to the station the next day (unless anyone can recommend safe inexpensive lodgings close to the station). If we drive, can anyone recommend places to stop over between Sarlat and Geneva that would be easy and kid friendly? Otherwise, I could just leave Sarlat in the morning and drive straight through. Suggestions??
