I'm taking a trip with friends in July, but have a few days to myself in between Paris and Carcassonne. I was planning on staying in Toulouse, but was reconsidering after looking at Rick Steves' guidebook. Should I go somewhere like Sarlat-la-Caneda instead? Just wanting to discover some new areas in France and practice my French. Looking for a few relaxing days somewhere picturesque. Will be traveling by train.
Thank you in advance for any advice!
