General travel advice - driving to the Dordogne
Most people coming by car pass through Calais, Paris and Limoges en route. However there are alternatives, one of the most important being whether to leave the motorway near Limoges or Brive. All our visitors suggest different routes, with your personal ideal route depending on several factors, including:
Whether you are travelling in high or low season
Would you prefer to take longer but avoid the toll roads,
Which port you will arrive at in France,
Whether you plan to break the journey up with an overnight stop en route.
If you are planning to stop somewhere overnight, perhaps the cheapest and easiest option is the Formule 1 network of motels, that cover most of the motorway network of France. You can make forward reservations here: Formule 1
The RAC has a good route planner system online that covers the whole of Europe.
Alternatively, last year many of our visitors had GPS in their cars, and almost all were very enthusiastic about how well it worked as a route finder. If you are feeling wealthy you can buy a reputable one from Amazon here...
