Saussignac is a commune in the Dordogne department in Aquitaine in southwestern France.

It is in the heart of Bergerac wine country and produces some of the best sweet white wines in France. Its pretty village centre has a Poste and Mairie.

The village is surrounded by several smaller communes each of which produce their own wines. A very pleasant few hours can be spent visiting the local chateaux who are always happy to guide you with a tasting of their reds, rose, dry and sweet whites.

Several vineyards offer accommodation and the Chateau des Vigiers golf course has accommodation and two restaurants.
