I'm having a really difficult time choosing between Provence and Dordogne for a week of our 3 week trip in late April and early May. We're definitely going to Barcelona for about a week, and then we're undecided. We had thought we'd go to Provence, but I've corresponded with folks on these forums and was introduced to Dordogne. Now I'm stumped. We're traveling with another couple and enjoy wandering through small towns and the countryside as well as visiting bigger cities and museums. Since we're going to Barcelona for the city adventure, we were looking for somewhere more laid back and beautiful. I'd love to hear your suggestions! I'm posting this on both Provence and Dordogne forums.
