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

My husband and I stopped in Saint Emilion for two days and started out by going to Tourist Information. They were incredible. Each young woman was energetic and enthusiastic about making our stay there excellent. They helped us solve a problem with our cell phone and gave us good insight on the vineyards. The tour they lead of the catacombs... More

On a business trip to France & Spain, I had the chance to take a weekend getaway in this UNESCO World Heritage Site. There is lots to do and see in St-Emilion, but more importantly, lots to eat... and drink ;-) Stopping by the Tourism Office is a great way to get you started, to know where to go and... More

Saint Emilion is most famous as a premier wine destination. We were based near there with our family for several months in mid 2013, and St Emilion was a popular location with our whole family, including the children, and whenever visitors came to stay, St Emilion would be one of the first places we would go to. The castle, the... More

St. Emilion is a very small village, in the middle of thousands of acres of vineyards. Though there's local train and bus service, you're best served by renting a car for travel here. The office for tourism is valuable primarily for arranging your visit to local chateaux -- the farms and offices where the local dark red, and usually heavy,... More

This is a beautiful picturesque town in the heart of the wine region. Full of bars and wine shops, you can even buy small vines of your favourite wine to take home with you. Be prepared for some serious walking, its very hilly and the best view of the area is quite a climb to the top of the ancient... More

My husband and I ended our three country tour of Europe in Saint Emilion. We loved the city and their tourism office was very helpful. You are able to rent bikes, find maps and advice, book wine tours or even get the key to the bell tower. We found the city to be very charming and relaxing with lots to... More

We visited just after arriving in St. Emelion mostly to find out about the Petit Train times, attractions like this tend to stop between 12-2pm as we found out during our trip. The staff were friendly and polite and the gift shop is very appealing, good selection.
