About Bergerac: Bergerac is situated in the heart of the Perigord/Dordogne region in south west France. (Aquitaine). The ancient city of Bergerac is compact in size and characterised by its elegant renaissance buildings from medieval times. Quaint bars and gourmet restaurants line the city streets and lane ways and the fact that almost all the city can be seen on foot is part of its charm. Shop opening hours are generally 10 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. and then from around 2.00 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. daily. Shops are closed Sundays (sometimes on Mondays). Some may open longer during the summer season or on the weeks over Christmas. Bergerac is renowned for its wine and a short trip to the outskirts of the city reveals a landscape of vineyards that produce some of the world's finest vintages. Fantastic markets including spectacular fish market every Friday.
Located just a few miles west of Bergerac, the Chateau des Vigiers offers 27 holes of golf designed by Donald Steel. The original 18-hole golf course was opened in 1991 and is set amidst plum orchards, oak woods, lakes and vineyards. A fantastic 9-hole course, also designed by Donald, integrates beautifully into the existing course.
