Owner description: The Jurisdiction of Saint-Emilion (including the town and the territory of the 8 villages united under the authority of the medieval Jurade) was listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage in 1999 to preserve, restore and share this outstanding heritage! 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!

The tourism office is large, well staffed and if you are not already on a tour it is a good place to arrange one. It is a little different than most tourism offices that just give you local information and have maybe one person who can look up outside side tours lodging etc. this office seems to be all about...

The tourism office is, as expected, a great place to gain the necessary information to tour St Emilion successfully. They hold the keys to the clock tower which provides excellent commanding views of the city and is a must do activity. St Emilion itself is a delightful town to explore. If you have active kids the tourist office will give... More

For great advice on visiting the wine chateaux - but the interactive tourist map in the office is also very useful!

We took the underground monument tour which was just fantastic. While my husband loves history I tend to easily become bored on these types of tours, but this one was one of the best I've ever been on. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and entertaining and it is the only way to access some of the historic sites in... More

We wandered about here while awaiting the Monolithic Church Tour. There is the normal tourist purchases available but more importantly the staff are helpful and there is a huge map of the area's wineries which should be the starting point for touring in the area. Free parking is available about 500 metres away near the large roundabout and on the... More

Gorgeous hill town with excellent shops and restaurants. Parking meters and steep stairs were challenging, but worth the effort.
