Found on the northern bank of the picturesque Dordogne River in south-west France is Bergerac, a town that has two statues of Cyrano de Bergerac, even though Cyrano never actually lived there. What it is famous for is some of the finest wines in the Bordeaux region, beautiful flower beds, legendary food, antique fairs and wonderful markets, but it’s the old town itself that really does gives Bergerac its wonderful reputation. With charming streets, attractive squares and superb boutiques, it’s a real treat to just wander around and explore, or dine at one of the celebrated Bergerac restaurants. The main square, Place Pelissiere, slopes gently upwards from the river area, where you’ll find St Jacques church. Bergerac is also home to a tobacco museum, and taking a trip outside the city to call in on one of the local vineyards that produce some of the world’s finest wines is a real treat.
