Driving down from Caen in a day - have been advised to go via Angouleme - Perigeaux.
It looks reasonable route on viamichelin but wondered whether Perigeaux was a bottleneck or does it have a peripherique ? Either going down Saturday Mid-August or back on the last Sat of August. Bad days to travel I know ;(
Having looked at my trusty michelin maps and played on googlemaps it seems that I can come down into Perigeaux on the D939 and head west towards the N2089 and then circle around to the E70 thus avoiding Perigeaux.
Are my fears about Perigeaux being a bottleneck unfounded ? Is it worth trying to dodge around or will everybody else be doing the same ?
Just a car - no caravan. But three tired kids and no desire to sit stationary in a traffic jam.
If you have a better route from Caen would be happy to hear. Dont mind tolls.
