Following yesterday's article (https://goo.gl/UkmB6s), here's a photo of Bergerac Public Garden ("Jardin Public") with its bandstand. Today, this space has been converted into 2 parking lots: Republique (open air) and Carmes (underground) car parks.
Following last week article about the new and improved Carmes St (https://goo.gl/9CXVkG), I could not help sharing with you a photo of this part of Bergerac dated back to 1946. 73 years ago, the town had 2 cinemas (The Cyrano and the Odeon) and a park next to it ("Jardin Public")
The Cinema Cyrano, is still there today in the same spot (building on your left), the other one, the Odeon, (on your right) closed down in the 60'.
As for the public garden ("Jardin Public"), it has been converted into 2 parking lots: Republique (open air) and Carmes (underground) car parks.
The Carmes St, in Bergerac (near the cinema and Repubique & Carmes Car Parks) is getting a facelift : widening of the pavement for the pedestrians, implementation of a cyclist lane, a 15mins parking zone with 2 carpark spots for disabled people. Therefore, from march, a temporary one-way system will be in place until completion of the work (May 2019).
Bergerac is getting a brand new indoor water park in autumn this year.
4 pools with jacuzzis, sauna, plenty of sunbeds to relax on the outdoor terrace… .. and you will be able to introduce your baby to the enjoyment of water thanks to Baby and Toddler swimming classes (from the age of 6months)!
Location: between Bergerac airport and La Cavaille.
Bergerac is 20mins drive from our rental located in the heart of the historic village of Beaumont du Perigord.
January in Dordogne is the coldest month of the year. But looking back at the year 1865, we can't complain. Back then, on the 5th of january, it was so cold that the river Dordogne froze and you could walk on it!
