My main destination is near Sarlat in southwest France. The nearest airports are Toulouse and Bordeaux. Would it be better to land in Paris and then take the train? I have no choice but to leave (from eastern Canada) in late May - early June so I can't avoid peak season but my understanding is that popular destinations like Paris and Amsterdam are cheaper than regional ones.
Thanks.

Yeah, I'd say that flying into Paris and taking the train would be by far the easiest and likely the least expensive option.

For a long-haul flight on Air France or whomever, you'd be flying into Paris and then taking a regional flight to Toulouse or Bordeaux anyway, so it's a matter of paying a bit more to fly all the way and get there faster, or to catch the train, save some money, and take the time to stop and smell the sewer.. I mean, roses in Paris along the way.
