We buzzing along the autoroute with a -very full – car and headed past Carcassone and Castelnaudry (both for another day) and arrived at Village de Constant, a Holiday Bond property to meet up with cousins Rachel and Dave.

First stop next………Bergerac.

Clad in festive bunting for the annual wine festival we found Bergerac enchanting. Situated on he banks of the Dordoyne river the old village is immaculate and festive.

The statue of the fictional character Cyrano de Bergerac – a well known play was written about him by a resident of Bergerac. Note his elongated and upturned nose.


Bunting everywhere. The architecture reminded us of England, not surprising as this area was under British rule for many years.


Old boats ply their trade on the Dordoyne along with more modern barges


A view of the village


The main Town Square of Bergerac ringed by restaurants, upmarket shops and the inevitable Notre Dame Cathedral.
