Destination guide

Enchanting days in beautiful Bergerac

With a slosh of Dordogne white and a flurry of fairy-tale homes and chateau turrets, Bergerac really packs a punch. You'll be enchanted from the moment you step foot in its cobbled old town, getting lost between half-timbered townhouses and flower-sprouting squares. Canoeing sessions on the river, wine tasting, walks and picnics are all on the menu. What's more, whether you're seeking a hearty country farmhouse villa with a pool or a pad in the medieval centre, Bergerac holiday rentals have you covered.

Things to do

Culture and wine in enthralling Bergerac

Bergerac manages to pack several enthralling museums into its old heart. Start with the Tobacco Museum, where a fascinating selection of carved pipes and pouches tells the story of smoking in France and beyond. Head to the Costi Museum, filled with curious bronze statues by the artist Constantin Papachristopoulos. Don't miss the "museum" at the Vin de Monbazillac, where you're more likely to spend a couple of hours tasting the fine roses and whites of southern France than learning anything about the history of the tipple. Who's complaining, though?


Bergerac offers options for all

Everything from thatched gites to barn-conversion villas make up the medley of Bergerac holiday rentals on the Dordogne River. Like to soak it all up? Hop into a canoe and drift down the peaceful waterway, admiring the passing cliffs, hamlets and castles as you go. Staying a little further afield means having the cellar doors and tasting rooms of the world-famous Bergerac wine region right on your doorstep. Something more central? Choose a base in the town centre and be surrounded by enticing bistros and cafes that spill out onto cobbled squares.


Year-round attractions in charming Bergerac

The Dordogne region is beautiful no matter the time of year. Winter, from November to March, brings crisp, clear days. Hardly anyone visits then, but you're bound to find Bergerac looking enchanting and festive. Spring heralds the start of the warmer months, but it's usually better to hold off until at least June if you're looking for Bergerac holiday rentals with a pool. The weather cools down again in September, but autumn remains a great time to visit, especially if you're a wine lover.

Natural features

Soak up the scenery in Bergerac

Bergerac clutches the banks of the winding Dordogne as it wiggles through the heartlands of southern France. All around the town are rolling landscapes of soft hills and flat farm fields. Blankets of vineyards turn the place into a sea of greenery come the summer, while pockets of fir and oak run for miles along the banks of the river. Heading north will bring you to the beautiful Perigord Limousin Natural Regional Park, a patchwork of heathland, lakes and woods that's quintessentially French.
