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

Packed full of information, the staff are friendly and speak in various languages, so don't be afraid to approach them for advice! We couldn't book a tour in advance, but managed to sort it out here, so it was all good. We also got helpful and useful advice on which chateaux to visit in the area.

This was our first stop when we arrived in this little French wine village. The staff were very helpful and gave us advise on tours etc. Definitely a good starting point if you visit St Emilion.

What a wonderful town with so much history. You must do the little train ride. Take time to wander the streets. What a quaint little town. Lots of beautiful restaurants, tasting areas and history

Wine tasting is very challenging in this area - the vast majority of vineyards aren't open or only open for booked tour groups or are open at very specific hours. This office will give you a book if you ask of all the wineries and show you which ones are open for tasting on that particular day. The book has... More

Fantastic tour. Took the English tour, our guide was a young English woman (Charlotte) who kept us all on our best behaviour, was entertaining and informative. The right tour guide can make all the difference though the sites were great as well.

This tourism office is excellent. They have a wonderful broad-ranging website as well as an easily accessible office right in the middle of Saint Emilion. The office is big enough to handle a large number of people. They had a number of English speaking reps at their main counter so it was easy to ask questions and receive answers. They... More

If you don't... More
