Black, green, white or purple – such is the Perigord palette.

Black for delicious, refined truffles, Green for the walnut trees lining every route, White for the geese that provide the foie gras and Purple for the grapes which make the finest Bergerac wines.

A region rich in prehistoric sites, roman art and well-preserved architecture from every century.   The chateau at Beynac is not to be missed, nor are the caves at Lascaux,  the vineyards in Bergerac or the roman bridge at Nontron.  For castles and gardens this area is hard to beat.  Wine tours, fine restaurants, farmers markets, lazy rivers, lakes and forests, walking, cycling, canoeing – and that’s just the start.

Flights go in to Bergerac from many regional UK airports – Toulouse is only 2 and a half hours away.  It’s a six hour drive from the nearest channel port and you’ll find so much to see and do that you’ll forget to go home!
