Covered in vines and bordered with rivers, along woody slopes and picturesque roads, the Jurisdiction of Saint-Emilion stretches out over 75 km² around a particularly well-preserved medieval town and is the ideal place to stay. Only 30 minutes from Bordeaux and 1h from Bergerac or Périgueux, Saint-Emilion is the perfect starting point to tour around the vineyards of Bordeaux and the Perigord district. Legend has it that the town bears the name of a Breton monk that performed miracles while living an exemplary life. In order to retire from social life, he settled in 750 in a natural grotto, which can still be visited nowadays in the heart of the town! « less

It's a very helpful tourism center for visitors especially we don't speak French. It would be perfect if there are free wifi services available in the tourism center.

Full of young, enthusiastic assistants. They were all keen to share the delights of their town, and most of them spoke very good English.

Park at one of the parking lots at the bottom of the hill and walk up. You may get a little lost, but really it's very easy to get around in St. Emilion. We happened upon the tourism office and got maps. There is plenty of information, but there isn't really much else. Some have said that walking up or... More

Very pretty area with some fantastic old buildings, including church, and most of the village in old stone, that looks as if it has been there forever. Great looking over sides of walls surveying the St Emilion Vineyard, wonderful. Many coaches and tourists, not the place to visit if you are disabled, and in a wheelchair, I think you may... More

Visited in 9/2014. They gladly provided us with maps and spoke English, but when asked about specific directions they appeared bothered despite the lack of tourists in the office. I have to say something about St. Emilion. Having traveled to Portugal, Spain, Monaco, and Italy overall we encountered more rudeness from the inhabitants in this region when compared to any... More

The tourist office is situated on the highest hill in town. it is bright airy and offers plenty of information. The personnel is anxious to help you. One can purchase tickets for wine tasting tours, a tourist train, the monolithic church and countless other activities. There is also a gift shop here.

This historic and beautiful town is well worth a full day visit. Every year we take visitors there as well as recommending guests in our gite to go and spend time and enjoy seeing an authentic French wine producing town. It has everything going for it, wonderful situation overlooking the vineyards of Saint Emilion - cobbled, narrow streets, the most... More

The village alone was an awesome way to spend a fine day near the end of summer. The staff at the tourism office were all extremely friendly and nice (their name tags indicate which languages they speak). We opted for the underground church tour, and our guide - Johanna - was perfect! Explaining each detail as best she could in... More
