A market town in the Dordogne departement in France, Bergerac offers the lovingly preserved atmosphere of an ancient town as well as an excellent location for touring. Otherwise known as �The Gateway to the Perigord�, Bergerac benefits from a vibrant tourism economy amid glorious countryside.

Many people associate Bergerac with gourmet cuisine in particular that concerning geese and ducks. The town is also famed for producing of truffles and also wine and tobacco.

One of France�s most beautiful rivers, the Dordogne winds its way through some of France�s most beautiful countryside. Over the years the river has proven much more important than something attractive to look at or to paddle in, it has made a considerable contribution of the local economy. Visit the town�s River transport Museum to find out more.

Today, the Dordogne river offers an array of holiday activities (fishing, riverside walks, kayaking) and contiues to play its important role in the local economy. Bergerac is widely known as a �picture� town and is awash with brightly coloured blooms. This fact recently recognised by its award of the four flowers for Best Decorated Town and Village competition.

Famed for its awards for being a pretty town, Bergerac has much more to offer. Excellent cuisine, antique fairs, wines and a diversity of activities round and about, Bergerac doesn�t need to rely on its winning �Best Decorated Town� awards to boost its tourism industry. Upon inspection, it is obvious that the town�s heritage is carefully preserved. With care and consideration for future generations, renovation work is always lovingly carried out in the architectural style of the town.

Look out for the statue of Cyrano de Bergerac, the literary hero by Edmond Rostand stands in Pelissiere Place. The larger than life character with the larger than life proboscis was actually a real person, although the creation of Rostand bears little resemblance to the real Cyrano. This square is the most beautiful of them all and belongs to the skin merchants.

Look out for the nineteenth century Notre Dame Church constructed in the style of neo-Gothic adds character and drama to the town centre beneath it-and looks awfully good in photographs too!

The market is popular and important part of village life. As with many attractions in Bergerac, there is a story to tell which concerns its location which goes back centuries. During the sixteenth century Wars of Religion, authorization was given to the citizens of Bergerac to freely practice their religion. In 1643, a temple was built to celebrate this new ruling but was shortly torn down by Louis XIV. Today the site of the temple is the market place and has been so since 1885.

Don�t leave the Old Town (ville basse) without a visit to the Museum of Tobacco based at the Peyrarede House. Additionally the Wine and River Transport Museum within a timber frame and brick house on the Place de la Myrpe tells of the evolution of the local vineyards as well as the Bergerac�s river heritage. Nearby, the Place Pelissiere proffers the stunning St Jacques Church worthy of a look if you don�t have to rush off. Beneath the church was once the Petite-Mission which operated as a royal college in the 17th century. Today the space plays host to the Sacred Art Museum.

A popular attraction in the region is that of the Maxange Caves situated at Le Buisson de Cadouin. These cliff-side holes are extremely rare because of their concretion and besides that offer an extraordinary array of stalactites and stalagmites.


Dordogne

This is a sensational part of France and is the region that surrounds the Dordogne River. Aside from the beauty of the largely open countryside landscape, the area is a popular destination for holidaymakers for the range of attractions here. From prehistoric caves to austere castles and kayaking to village exploring, it is all here.

Rich in heritage and rife with monuments, the Dordogne can offer more historical features than anywhere in France (outside of Paris). Visitors can enjoy a multitude of attractions in the Perigord in particular from 1500 chateaux and manor houses, 400 roman churches, fortified walled towns as well as its prehistoric sites.

The town of Perigueux is the capital of the Dordogne with secondary administrative centres of Bergerac, Sarlat-la-Caneda and Nontron. While in the Dordogne, you are never too far away from a bendy river complete with a picturesque scene. Here, in these hugely fertile lands the valleys of the Isle, Dordogne, Vezere and Dronne send you a welcome that makes it very difficult to leave. Within these valleys are a smattering of villages and towns that time has done little to change and which present a treat to explore.

To the north of the Dordogne is the archaic wooded Limousine region of the Perigord. At the centre of the Perigord is the limestone ridden Perigord Blanc (or white Perigord). The Perigord generally experiences milder winters than its neighbours and people tend to holiday here outside of the Summer months. While the winters are less harsh, the summers are moderate which is great news for those among us with fair skin. Wherever you visit, whether by the lakes or upon a wooded hill side, the tendency is that climates are considerably variable as though they have their own climatic zones. The regions that are more exposed due to tree felling tend to experience hot dry summer months.
