Hi,

Am planning a day trip to Sarlat whilst staying in Bordeaux in July after reading on trip advisor that it's good for foodies like us but just want some advice on whether it's worth going just for 1 day&if so what is there to do there?thanks

Try to visit on a Wednesday or Saturday, when a market takes over the entire centre of town. It is a lovely town and well worth visiting. For things to see and do, see http://www.northofthedordogne.com/sarlat.php

That means it will be more like 3 hours: ViaMichelin is optimistic about travel times.

You'd be better off staying a night in Sarlat and then using the second day to explore around the area before heading back to Bordeaux.

On market days there is a walking tour of the town for a very modest price - run from the tourist centre in the middle of Sarlat. It was very interesting and I got a good overview of the town. Plenty of time to do that and visit the market too.

Sarlat is so busy on market days that you really have to get there before 9am in order to park anywhere.
