Saint Sauveur de Bergerac Town HallVersion Française


In 1517, the town was called Sanctus Salvator de la Mongia because it depended on the lordship of Clérans.
In 1737, it had the name of Saint Sauveur de Clérans. It kept this name until the Revolution.

Since 1849, the town has the name Saint Sauveur de Bergerac.

The town of Saint Sauveur de Bergerac spreads out on the first heights dominating the right bank of the Dordogne River, north of Mouleydier.


The town is 7 km east of Bergerac, and is surrounded by five towns: Mouleydier, Lembras, Lamonzie-Montastruc, Creysse and Liorac-sur-Louyre. To the north, the small river Le Caudeau forms a natural boundary with the towns of Lamonzie-Montastruc and Lembras. The departmental road D32 crosses the town east-west. The D21 crosses it north-south.
The town is a member of the Bergerac II district. With five neighbouring towns, it makes up the
Community of the Bergerac urban area


The small, flowered village is nestled in a 930-hectare forest setting, where animal raising, Pécharmant vineyards, pony club and hiking trails all rub shoulders.
The commune’s highest point is 141 meters, where the two water towers are located.
Heritage has its place with the philosopher-mathematician Maine de Biran (1766-1824) who lived in his small manor house, Grateloup. His tomb is located beside the sacristy.
The public school, which has been grouped inter-municipally (RPI) with the Lamonzie-Montastruc school since 1992, accommodates primary school students from CE1 to CE2. Since 1998, children flourish in a roomy structure, open to Europe, equipped with a canteen for children where traditional cooking is prepared on-site.
Children aged 5 to 12 can benefit from Leisure Reception’s “Les Filous” and, since September 2008, the smallest children are accommodated in the new inter-communal day nursery with a high-quality environmental label, established in the town.
No fewer than 12 associations animate village life, in the centre of which a hotel-restaurant and a bakery await you.

The town’s inhabitants (called Salvadoriens) number 850 (official population on January 1, 2017).

The town has one flower in the “Flowered Cities and Villages” classification.
