Bergerac Travel Information

Bergerac is an ideal base from which to explore the Dordogne region. Rivers flow through a landscape dominated by vineyards, and many have safe beaches for bathing. The vineyards are the main reason that many people come to this part of the world. If you’re lucky, you might be able to get hold of a bottle of Montbazillaz – a velvety white wine, drunk on special occasions. To the north of the river, there are still many smaller wine producers, creating some excellent red Bergeracs.

Market days see the town come alive. The market is crammed full of locals selling fresh and locally made produce, including, of course, local wines. Take some time to explore the old quarter, a charming place where you’ll find late-medieval houses.

This corner of south west France offers a fantastic range of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets, and there are a superb range of attractions and activities to keep visitors of all ages entertained.
