We will be spending 3 nights in Lyon in August this year and would need some suggestions and help for must sees, most dos, and must eat restaurants (we love good food but usually prefer hole-in-the-wall places over fancy very expensive restaurants).
Also, if you have hotel suggestions for something decent in the range of $100 - $120 per night, please share.
Finally, from Lyon we will continue on to the Dordogne by rental car, and we felt Sarlat might be a good hub. Bordeaux and the Spanish Basque region are on our agenda as well. Should you have any suggestions in those areas, we would be very interested.
Thank you for your help in advance.
