We a planning an almost two week trip to bordeaux, the dordogne and the basque country in mid september. any must do suggestions on places to stay and eat in this area? Because of the restrictive alcohol laws, we are partial to in site dining or meals close where we where we stay. Within reason we have a pretty loose budget and would like to eat and a number of Michelin one and two star places. We also like village or small towns rather than big cities.
I've gone thru the Michelin Guide closely and there are so many choices.
