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!

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.

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

A very friendly and beautiful town. Friendly staff at the tourism office, but with such a pretty historic village, who would not be happy! Worth the trip.

We stopped by to ask some questions and to our surprise they have a very nice gift shop there. T-shirts, bags, kids items, etc. We picked up several items. They were very helpful and friendly. The office was very busy with tourists. Definiately worth a stop.

Very helpful, enthusiastic, knowledgable. Lots of resources but most importantly a great attitude. The Chateau tours all require reservations and these folks are great at helping you navigate all this
