Don't be fooled by St Capraise de Lalinde which is a village before us ! If you arrive via Bordeaux, take the route to Bergerac, when driving through Bergerac follow the signs to Sarlat, many of the around-a-bouts also have Lalinde signage, if you come via Toulouse, take the road to Agen then Beaumont then Lalinde... happy and safe driving !
