5 day tour from Toulouse in southern France

We are semi-retired, wine, history and scenery lovers. We have 5 days to get the best out of southern France from Toulouse to Bordeaux and would like to include the Dordogne and Midi-Pyrenee regions. Our travel dates are 14-20 May and we are traveling by car.

Any suggestions on places of interest to visit in the abovementioned areas?

Any recommendations for accommodation and typical french restaurants in these regions?

Thanks

For the Dordogne you have so much choice - Sarlat is busy but lovely and you can stay in the centre of the old village. Rocamadour is really interseting for a day - close to the Gouffre de Padirac and there is also a wonderful bird sanctuary nearby with huge eagles, owls etc and does two daily shows - marvellous.

Five days isn't much to see such a beautiful area but I am sure you will love it. We drove from Toulouse to a little village just out of Cordes staying at a b@b called La Maison au Puits which was delightful. There are lovely red wines in Gaillac. From here we visited Cordes and Albi which were both interesting places full of history. You could stay in that area for a couple of nights before heading north for a couple more nights. It's very interesting to see the change in scenery driving through the Midi Pyrenees, the Lot area and the Dordogne. Some of the places we enjoyed visiting further north were: Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, Cahors (nice wines around here too) and villages in the Dordogne like La Roque-Gageac and Domme. There are lots of wonderful caves to visit in the Dordogne as well. You could stay in Sarlat or in a village nearby as we did because we did not want to deal with the traffic and parking issues every day. We stayed at La Barde B&B in Montfort and travelled around from there. One recommendation of a nice French restaurant in Sarlat is L'Assiette de Fois Gras. Enjoy your stay and extend it if you can!
