The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
The Dordogne region is renowned for its Chateaux, vineyards and breathtaking landscapes. Bordeaux lies just to the west, and apart from the city itself, it offers some of the most beautiful beaches. Perigueux, to the north of Bergerac is equally stunning with numerous castles, chateaux and caves to explore.
The climate is ideal, long hot sunny days and warm, balmy nights.
Bergerac is an historic town with a wealth of charming cobbled streets and interesting antique and curiosity shops. It lies on the banks of the Dordogne river and, along with Eymet and the most of the other market towns, plays host to a weekly market frequented by tourists and locals alike. Here you can buy fresh fish, flowers, bread, foie gras, fruit as well as jewellery, clothes and shoes. Truly a market which caters for everyone!
Eymet also holds a night market which has a wonderful atmosphere. Moules frites are on offer, as well as barbequed duck and the evening takes on a carnival atmosphere. More of a social evening than a shopping expedition! These evening markets are now very popular and you will find that most towns hold one in the main holiday season.
