Between the Loire Valley and the Pyrenees lies the beautiful Bergerac. This town is nestled in the heart of Dordogne, a picturesque region full of medieval hamlets and sun-kissed vineyards. Long famous as a foodie paradise, British tourists have been travelling to the area for generations to feast on finger-licking local delicacies. With flights to Bergerac available from all across the UK, there’s never been a better time to book your gourmet getaway of a lifetime.
The Dordogne in the southwest of France has a pleasant climate with hot summers and mild winters, making Bergerac a pleasant destination throughout the year. The summer months are peak tourist season but the best time to find cheap tickets to Bergerac is from late autumn through to early spring. Spring is a great time to travel as the town’s markets come to life with yummy fresh local produce and an explosion of colourful flowers. Summer can get quite hot, with temperatures in the high 20s, and the crowds tend to increase in August during the peak season for French holidaymakers. Autumn’s mellower heat makes it popular with visitors, while winter is for the die-hard foodies. Many of the hotels and restaurants may close, but those that stay open serve the in-season delicacy, black truffles.
Bergerac’s compact airport has a surprisingly large number of connections to the UK, reflecting the region’s immense popularity with British visitors. British Airways serves the airport from London City Airport during the summer months. Your best chance of finding cheap flights to Bergerac, however, is to book through budget carriers Ryanair and Flybe. Ryanair has a year-round service from Stansted as well as seasonal services from some regional airports including Bristol. Flybe offers return flights to Bergerac from Southampton and seasonal flights from Birmingham, Edinburgh and other smaller airports. Air France also flies from Southampton, but only during peak season.
Bergerac Dordogne Périgord Airport, sometimes called Bergerac-Roumanière Airport, serves the northeast section of the Aquitaine region. It’s a popular destination for British travellers and the majority of flights to the airport come from the UK. The airport is located just a few miles outside the beautiful medieval town centre and, as there are no public transport services, the easiest way to make the trip is by taxi. There’s generally a queue of taxis waiting outside the terminal building. The journey to town only takes around 10 minutes and will cost you between €15 and €20. If you’re looking for connections throughout the Dordogne, take a trip to the TUB bus station in the centre of town.
Wine, truffles and foie gras are all part of the typical Bergerac diet, and a wander through the region’s food markets is a feast for the eyes – and the tummy. Step back into the past with a stroll through Bergerac’s medieval centre – full of cobbled laneways, fountains and half-timber buildings.
