Bergerac Weather February Averages, France
Situated on the northern bank of the Dordogne River in south west France, Bergerac is a small town with a big appetite. The restaurants here are truly second to none, and the town's nightlife centres around its many eateries and intimate bars.
Temperatures rise a little in February after the particularly cold December and January, but not by much. It's still a chilly 3 to 11 degrees celsius in Bergerac at this time of year, so travellers wanting a warm and sunny holiday should hold off a few more months.
Rainfall remains moderate with 79mm expected to fall during February. Around half the month will be damp, and the winter frosts stick around so it may be a little slippery around the town.
Each February, the Maison des Vins- 'the House of Wines'- opens its doors to visitors. This wine museum shows the history of Bergerac wines through many old photographs and films, but the highlights are the sensory room where visitors can compare the different aromas of a number of different wines made locally, and the wine cellar where tastings are conducted. The museum is open Tuesday-Saturday during the winter months, and every day during the summer.
For an authentic and traditional French dinner, head to LeBistroduCoin. The menu here changes regularly to incorporate the latest seasonal ingredients, but often features choices of smoked fish, goats cheeses and duck cooked using a variety of methods. There's plenty of wines on offer, along with beers, spirits and soft drinks.
The Budget hotel chain Etap has a property in Bergerac where visitors can stay for £37 per night. Rooms accommodate between 1 and 3 guests and are perfect for both leisure and business travellers. There's private off-road parking, ideal for visitors with a rental car, and an all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast is presented in the dining room each morning.
