Why you should go to Bergerac
Steeped in history and art, and the perfect base for wine lovers, Bergerac has something to offer all travellers. Capital of the Périgord Pourpre region in the Dordogne, this picturesque town boasts everything from delightful eateries to fascinating museums, and you can explore the surrounding vineyards set in rolling hills. Local winemakers include Château d’Elle, Domaine deHaut Pécharmant and Château de Tiregand.
At the heart of Bergerac, you’ll find the old town, or Vieille ville, complete with fountains, statues, restaurants and cafes. There are plenty of shops where you can indulge in some retail therapy too.
History buffs won’t want to miss out on The Maison des Vin, which is housed in an ancient cloister and reveals how winemaking has taken place in the area through the centuries. The Musée d’Anthropologie du Tabac, meanwhile, looks at the historical, social and cultural impact of tobacco and can be found in a stunning 17th century building. The Musée Costi is one for art aficionados and features 60 sculptures in bronze and plaster by Constantin Papachstopoulos.
If you hire a car during your stay, it’s also worth making the hour-and-a-half drive to Bordeaux. Sitting 50 miles west of Bergerac on the coast, it offers a beach to enjoy and some of France’s most stunning architecture, not to mention a thriving dining scene.
