Hello all. I have a very broad question to start with as we haven't been to this region of France before. I am hoping to get a short list of places to stay/visit on a short stopover in France. We will be breaking up Scotland (relatives) and Northern Ireland (family) with an 8 day stay in France. We will fly from Edinburgh to Bergerac and stay with Aussie friends who now live in Sadillac for 4 days. We then intend to meet up with my wife's sister who live in London for 4 days before flying back to Belfast from Paris on the Sunday.
So where to visit and where to stay is the question. We first thought of Loire Valley on an Amazing Race TV show when they did a challenge in a Champignon Cave. The area and caves looked really interesting but I have forgotten the town name they were filmed in. Given that we will probably have to get a train from the Sadillac region and then another train to Paris on the Sunday, could anyone suggest a good location for me to start researching.
Our other interests are wine, walking, photography. We also enjoy the historic buildings that are so well filmed throughout France when Le Tour is broadcast around the world. Any help is welcome. Thanks.
