That depends on their interests. There are stunning prehistoric art works, an old troglodyte mansion built into cliff caves (which, when we visited a few years ago, also had a display of torture instruments), many beautiful villages, and a large market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

There a couple of what they call 'adventure parks' just outside Sarlat on the way to Soulliac. They have flying foxes. zip lines, rope courses and that kind of thing. A canoe ride down the Dordogne is also fun. The sarlat tousist office website has info.

If you have daughters then there is a fabulous Betty Boop shop in Rocamadour (its mid way up/down). Also for girls there is a lovely shop on Rue Fenelon (near the top of the hill) that has the most wonderful hair accessories made from such things as Fanta Bottle Lids, Juicy Fruit Chewing Gum and other bizarre things that look great.

I just came back from Sarlat after visiting there with two 12-yr old boys. They both say that they enjoyed the day and ahalf of touring we did with Steve Burman of Caves & Castles Tours. He took us to see cave art, prehistoric rock shelters, castles, and medieval sites, explaining it all to us in such a natural way and letting us move along at our our own speed so that we never felt like we were "on tour." And he did all the driving, which made it much more relaxing since we didn't have to find our way. The kayaking on the Dordogne looked so fun, but we just didn't have enough time.

I cannot imagine anyone going to the Dordogne and being bored.

In addition to all of the above, there are amazing chateaux to visit (both the landed-gentry type AND the defensive fortress type) -- fishing, hiking, canoeing/kayaking...the list goes on and on.
