Once you’ve picked up your hire car, it’s just a short trip (3 km approx.) to the quaint market town of Bergerac via the N21 road which passes the airport on its north and west sides.
The town is situated in the Aquitaine region, at the western edge of the Dordogne département, one of the most popular destinations in France for UK visitors. It’s also a handy starting-off point for trips to the Périgord and Lot et Garonne.
As a town it celebrates the finer things in life in a major way, with its wine and tobacco museums and the vast surrounding vineyards.
Enjoy a stroll through the old town with its old timbered houses and down to the vieux port for trips on the Dordogne river. You won’t be surprised to see that there’s also a statue of Cyrano de Bergerac, complete with a very large nose.
Don’t forget the Arboretum de Podestat to the north of the town. A haven for nature lovers, the arboretum is open by appointment and admission is free.
Other towns within easy reach include Bordeaux (85 km via the A89 motorway), Périgueux (50 km), Sarlat (70 km) and Agen (90 km).
Pick up your hire car in Bergerac Airport and take to the open road with ease. From the airport it’s just a short drive into the rolling green hills of the Dordogne.
