Bergerac, France

Self Catering Bergerac Holiday Gites, Houses and Villas to rent

Bergerac is a town in the Dordogne department of the Aquitaine region in south-western France, located on the northern bank of the Dordogne River, in the western part of the department.

Bergerac is primarily known for its tobacco and its wine: it has 12 recognized wine AOCs! Bergerac offers some of the finest wines in the Bordeaux region thanks to its proximity to the Dordogne River and the excellent drainage this offers. You can’t fail to miss the vineyards that are everywhere to be seen when you rent a self-catering holiday home in Bergerac, France.

When you stay in Bergerac holiday rental accommodation, be sure to take in the old town. The 'vieille ville' boasts pretty little streets and squares, not to mention a tempting array of boutiques! The town comes alive on market days (Wednesday & Saturday) when you'll see an array of excellent local produce on display.

There’s also the main square, Place Pelissiere. The nearby St Jacques church formed part of the Saint Jacques de Compostella pilgrimage – now just its attractive bell-tower and balcony are original. The town also boasts a statue of Cyrano de Bergerac, subject of the famous play of the same name by Edmond Rostand - though the actual Cyrano never lived in Bergerac!

If you’re tempted by wine tasting when you rent self catering villas or gites in Bergerac, then a visit to the Recollets convent is a must. It is linked to the Maison des Vins de Bergerac and has an exhibition of all of the wine appellations of Bergerac. Wine tasting, of course, is also available!

The National Tobacco Museum is situated in the Maison Peyrarede - one of Bergerac‘s most impressive buildings. Built in 1604, the Tobacco Museum includes an impressive display of pipes and retraces 3000 years of history.  A stay in Bergerac is also a perfect base for visiting the many prehistoric caves and other ancient sites which dominate the area.

Bergerac is served by the Bergerac-Roumanière airport, which has internal flights, and routes to UK airports including Southampton, Bristol, East Midlands, Luton, Edinburgh, Exeter, Liverpool, Birmingham, Leeds-Bradford and London Stansted Airport. Ryanair and Flybe operate out of this airport. Bergerac has an SNCF station with regular services to Bordeaux and Sarlat-la-Canéda. To drive to Bergerac from Cherbourg is a good day’s drive; the A6 serves Bergerac between Bordeaux and Paris.

Bergerac enjoys a climate that is much like the majority of the south of France which is mild with short winters, longer summers and no real temperature extremes.
