Hi, we are planning an 8 day / 7 night road trip from Carcassonne to Dordogne and onto Amboise and we were hoping for some help.
We are Australian and this will be our first visit to this part of France. Our interests are history, scenery, wine and of course good food (not necessarily in that order). So our plan at this stage is an early flight into Toulouse on the 9/7/2014, grabbing a rental car and heading to Carcassonne. From there it's (1 night) Carcassonne, (3 nights) Dordogne, (3 nights) Amboise. We then fly out of Paris late on the 16/7/2014.
As I mentioned, this is our first trip to this area and we were really interested to see if anyone could suggest any alternatives, itineraries or scenic routes. We'd also love input on our length of stay in each place, suggestions on B&B or Boutique hotels, must see's or do's, restaurants, etc
Any & all help would be greatly appreciated.
