Why you should go

If you love wine, Bergerac will probably turn out to be your dream holiday destination. If you’re looking to explore the wine country, or simply want a weekend escape witha loved one, Bergerac is an idyllic, picturesque town with something on offer for everybody. Visitors can relax by strolling the medieval streets and paying a visit to the historic Old Town which centres around the Place Pelissiere – a picturesque square edged with cafés. You can also visit several local winemakers, including Château d’Elle, Château de Tiregand and Domaine deHaut Pécharmant. Around the city, there are plenty of restaurants where you can sample the local cuisine and wine.

History buffs will be delighted to uncover Bergerac’s museums. The Maison des Vin is housed in an ancient cloister and gives the story of the region’s winemaking 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 lovers 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. With a beach to enjoy and some of France’s most stunningly beautiful architecture which is guaranteed to take your breath away, making the trip to Bordeaux is definitely worth it; even if it’s just a day trip.

When you should go

Bergerac is beautiful year-round, but if you’re looking for hot and sunny weather, visit between late May and early September. Temperatures can reach up to 30 degrees, so don’t forget to pack your sun cream!

Where you should stay

From elegant hotels to quirky country houses, you will be spoilt for choice when trying to decide where to stay in Bergerac. For somewhere extra special, check out the fairy tale-esque Chateau les Merles or the beautifully rustic La Chartreuse du Bignac.  Otherwise, there are plenty of B&Bs, cottages and apartments available to suit all budgets.

Don’t miss!

During your stay in Bergerac, there are a few things that you simply must see:

  • Statue Cyrano de Bergerac – the life-sized, almost puppet-like statue of the French novelist and playwright is one of the most popular attractions in Bergerac, and for good reason! His statue is in a square surrounded by cafes and restaurants, so make sure you make a pit stop.
  • Aqua Park – whether you’ve got the kids with you or you’re a big kid yourself, take a dip and fly down the slides at Bergerac’s Aqua Park. If you’re there with a family, book a ‘box’ in advance – sunbeds, a parasol, a table and chairs, giving you plenty of space to spread out and relax.
  • Inter Caves – Bergerac is famous for its wine, and there is no better place to stock up than Inter Caves. For an enormous variety and the best service in town, this is the place; just make sure you take a car or some extra hands to help carry your cargo!
