The elegant Renaissance city of Bergerac is the wine capital of the Dordogne region, and many of the best hotels here have vineyard views. Chateau Les Farcies Du Pech (Les Farcies Nord) overlooks the Pecharmant vineyards and combines oodles of traditional charm with B&B prices. If you're looking for something more luxurious, however, then restored period townhouse Maison d'Hotes Le Clos d'Argenson (99 rue Neuve d'Argenson) is located in the city centre and has its own pool, billiard room and library. A cheap and cheerful option is the Ibis Budget Bergerac (ZI La Cavaille Nord Route de Bordeaux), a 10-minute journey from the centre of Bergerac.

Bergerac's bustling food markets are superior even by French standards. The Friday farmers' market at the Place de la Madeleine is where locals go to do their weekly food shop, and Place Doublet's organic Tuesday market is a good bet for gastronomic souvenirs. The Old Town has a few select boutiques hidden away down back alleys, as well as some fascinating craft stores - Arts Terres (24 rue Neuve d'Argenson) is a highly browsable collection of pottery and ceramics that's certainly worth a look in. For a more modern shopping experience, you'll need to head out to a hypermarket such as E-Leclerc (Route de Bordeaux) or Carrefour (Route de Castillon).

Foie gras, duck conserve, walnuts and truffles are all Bergerac specialities. You can watch these ingredients being prepared at La Table du Marche (21 place Louis de la Bardonnie), a delectable bistro with an open kitchen. Le Repaire de Savinien (15 rue Mounet-Sully), near the Notre Dame church, is one of the city's classiest restaurants, serving traditionally French cuisine based around seasonal ingredients. Le Vin'Quatre (14 rue Saint-Clar) offers modern combinations at wallet-friendly prices, while La Flambee (49 avenue Marceau-Feyry) specialises in fresh fish prepared to perfection. If you're craving pasta and pizza, then La Mama (Place Malbec) is an informal Italian that's excellent value for money.
