UTL - Université du Temps Libre
The Université du Temps Libre in Bergerac is a non-profit organisation which aims to provide a wide range of artistic, cultural and sports activities in a friendly, sociable atmosphere. All our teachers and coaches work on a voluntary basis.

Whether you’ve just moved to France or lived here for many years, joining the UTL is your opportunity to learn new skills and make new friends. We work in close cooperation with local English-speaking organisations such as the Dordogne Ladies Club International.
