I know some of you saw my posting re Dordogne and we received many helpful responses. We are
expecting to spend a week in that region and also a week near Carcassone, preferably not far from the town and also preferably closer to Toulouse than to the East.We may also spend a few days in Toulouse.
Our ideal is a beautiful restored villa, with individual rooms that are quite private, and a common eating area in or outside. Lovely house, perfect rural setting, wonderful hosts, an easy 20 minute hike to town, and easy access to daily auto excursions in the region.
Any leads regarding places you know would be very welcome.
I am having a good time researching places (virtual travel!) but would welcome hearing about ones you know.
My advice would be go onto the site of Alistair Sawday Special Places to Stay. www.sawdays.co.uk They have amazing B&Bs all over France. I use them all the time when travelling in France.....in fact all of Europe.
A great lead, for all regions!
Chateau de Floure sounds exactly like what you are looking for. Consult the site Relais du Silence.

There are also Gites de France and check the Gites de Charme. GDF also has B&Bs and there is a "charme" category there too.
Logis de France has a category Logis D'Exception that might interest you. One of them was mentioned above and another is CHATEAU DES DUCS DE JOYEUSE about 40 km from Carcassonne. http://www.logis-exception.com/en
Well we've now decided that Carcassone is too far in that it will mean less time in some other areas we want to visit.
We've decided on time in the Aveyron.
We continue to plan a trip that includes Paris and, prominently, the Drodogne region.
We plan to head from the Dordogne to 4-6 days in the Aveyron region.
We found a place near Villefranche-DeRouergue, Les Fontaines, that looks lovely. Further to the East.
Our host in the Dordogne recommended the village of SAINT-CIRQ-LAPOPIE.
So we're wondering if we should find a place closer to that beautiful village.
Any thoughts? Place recommendations?
We like charming b and bs.
Then we need to decide whether to skip Toulouse and just take the train from Cahors to Paris.
The trade-off is more time in the villages and countryside of Aveyron or a day or two in Toulouse, before going to Paris for 3 or 4 days.
Any thoughts greatly appreciated.
