Nearby Bergerac Airport
Dominated by chateaus and vineyards, this part of France offers you a glimpse into the nation's heart away from the famous tourist sights and beaches. The 15th century castle Chateau de Bridoire is just a 15-minute drive from Bergerac Airport, while fellow architectural delight Chateau de Lanquais is just 25 minutes away.
The wonderful freedom of car hire means you can visit Bordeaux wine country within just over an hour's drive of Bergerac.

Eating and drinking
For wine lovers, a tasting session in Bordeaux is a must. Meanwhile, if you're after a truly authentic French experience when dining out, make sure to order escargots de bourgogne (that's snails baked in their shells and served with parsley butter) or a comforting traditional peasant dish such as coq au vin or beef bourguignon.
Things to do
Dordogne is home to one of France's listed 'Jardins Remarquable', Les Jardins de Marqueyssac. Get lost in the boxwood maze, try your hand at rock climbing, marvel at the waterwalls and beware of the strutting peacocks. The Font-de-Gaume caves are also situated in Dordogne. Prehistoric animal drawings can be found on the cave walls, as well as ancient engravings and sculptures carved out of the rock.
The Bordeaux vineyards can be explored on foot, by bike or even from a river cruise, with many different wine tours taking place in the region best known for harvesting the grapes found in your favourite merlot and cabernet sauvignon.
