We are planning to drive from Calais to the Dordogne this Easter Bank Holiday (clubbed with the Royal wedding). We will be travelling for a week. I reckon it is about 8-9 hours drive from Calais to Dordogne so would like to break the journey. Does anyone have any recommendations for a decent (but cheapish) hotel or a town/ village /tourist attraction worth a small detour to somewhere around about the half way mark - about 4-5 hours drive from Calais?
I have not yet booked any accommodation in Dordogne so would appreciate ideas on where to live (caravan/motor home would do too as on a tight budget). Is there any other place worth visiting between Calais to Dordogne?
Thanks very much for any replies, much appreciated!
