About the neighbourhood
Campsegret is a tranquil little hamlet 18 minutes from Bergerac airport. You have all the amenities close by but can immerse yourself in the countryside. The local cafe just 5 minutes away sells fresh bread and pastries daily (we can pick these up for you in the morning!) as well as groceries & wine. There are a number of local bars and restaurants we can recommend but Bergerac with its medieval old town has plenty of gourmet restaurants and two weekly markets selling delicious local produce such as cheeses, foie gras, truffles and confit de canard. The area has much to offer for walkers, cyclists, sightseers and wine tasters, with quaint medieval & Bastide villages, chateaux and gardens to explore.
Getting around
Once in the Dordogne, the local TER trains run between Bordeaux, Libourne, St Emilion, Bergerac, Le Buisson and Sarlat. But a car really is essential. For wine lovers a visit to Monbazillac is a must. Just 20 minutes away, you can enjoy wine tasting, wander around the chateau and take lunch at their excellent restaurant. And the historic towns of Sarlat, Montignac, Les Eyzies and Perigueux are easily accessible. Take a barge (gabbare) down the Dordogne, canoe along the Vezere or visit the famous Lascaux Caves. Bordeaux is also about an hour away making this an ideal location to experience the Aquitaine.

How to get there
Airport: Bergerac Roumanière Airport: 15.0 km
Railway: Bergerac Station: 13.0 km
The best way of getting to the Dordogne (if you are not within driving distance) is to fly and then hire a car. There are two airports in the Dordogne region, Bergerac and Brive, as well as Bordeaux International airport to the west of the Dordogne.If you wish to bring your car with you from the UK, then you will probably take a ferry to the north coast of France where the onward drive is around 6 hours to Périgueux. It might be worth considering arriving at a ferry port closer to the west of France, such as Caen or Saint Malo. The closest ferry port to the Dordogne is actually Bilbao in Spain, with a driving time of just 4 hours 30 minutes to Bergerac or Périgueux. The crossing time is much longer though - between 24 and 32 hours from the UK.
