Bergerac is home to a population of British people who frequently identify as ’expats’ rather than immigrants. This trend is not unique to Bergerac and is evident throughout the Dordogne.[8] In part, this is driven by house prices which are very affordable when compared with either the French or British national averages.[9] The increasing British presence has led to some integration initiatives such as the non-profit Université du Temps Libre which offers French language classes and a programme of cultural activities.[10]
