Grab a bargain by visiting the Dordogne when everyone else isn't!

Truffle hunting

Truffle hunting

We start the morning visiting the locally known black truffle market in St. Alvere where you can meander around the truffle stalls taking in the smells and ambiance.

 

After lunch, we join local truffle hunting expert Sebastien and his dog Falco and go in search of the famous Perigord Black Truffle.

 

You'll learn about the different types of truffles, techniques of truffle hunting and enjoy a fabulous truffle tasting menu.

Wine tour of the Bergerac vineyards

Enjoy a full day wine tour providing an introduction to the spectacular wines of Bergerac by visiting three vineyards. 

 

The Bergerac region is home to over 12,000 hectares of vines, 13 AOC and more than 900 wine-growers and whilst  overshadowed by their world famous neighbours in Bordeaux, Bergerac vineyards offer great value wines of a similar quality.

 

You'll experience everything from the luminous Bergerac Sec to creamy Monbazillac via Pécharmant, a full bodied red and enjoy a fabulous lunch at La Tour des Vents, a gastronomic restaurant in the heart of the Monbazillac vineyards with exceptional views.
