Located on the edge of the Dordogne, Bergerac is surrounded by prestigious vineyards, tobacco plantations, and fields of wheat and maize. Its old quarter has undergone significant restoration work which has highlighted its 15C and 16C buildings and their attractive and harmonious honey-coloured stone. This old town, which once derived its income from transport along the Dordogne, is now a tranquil base for pleasant excursions and fine dining.
