The Bergerac region, a bounty of pleasures

In the South West of Périgord, the Bergerac region has many things that make it an ideal destination to relax and escape: heritage, nature, regional cuisine…

You tour starts in the town of Cyrano, Bergerac, with its historical district, narrow medieval streets and Renaissance houses. Next, a visit of the prestigious Monbazillac, Lanquais and Biron castles lead you to the edge of the Bastide region where the delightful architecture of Monpazier, Beaumont and Issigeac awaits. Monbazillac, delicious nectar and a crucial compliment to foie gras, belongs to the family of Bergerac wines of which there are 13 appellations. Begin to discover these regional wines at Recollets Cloister where a hundred and thirty vintners are ready to welcome you and share their passion of their craft.How to get there?www.ryanair.com: Bergerac / Londres Stansted (STN), Bristol (BRS), East Midland (EMA), Liverpool (LPL), Luton (LTN) www.flybe.com: Birmingham (BHX), Exeter (EXT), Edinburgh (EDI), Leeds/Bradford (LBA), London-Catwick (LGW), Southampton (SOU).
