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

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

St Emilion is very busy during the day but quieter after all the tour groups have left for the day. Would suggest overnighting if possible to really appreciate this historic village.

The staff were very helpful here. We hired bicycles from here and had a very pleasant ride through the vineyards though struggled to follow the map that was provided, this didn't detract from the scenery but it would be nice if they were signposted better. There were letters on the map that did not have a matching paragraph on the... More

Agnes was fantastic. A very intelligent, passionate, humourous young woman who knows about the town, region, wine making and how it all fits in with history. She made our tour.

They weren't very helpful and we couldn't even book a tour so we didn't. There is only 1 English-speaking tour a day, it's after lunch and they close for lunch anyway so you have to be lucky when you turn up - best to turn up at 1330 and try to get in for the 1400 tour.

The drive to Saint Emilion from Bordeaux is relatively short and pleasant . The town of Saint Emilion is interesting in itself .While there it is also possible to take a small open train or a bus to tour some of the surrounding vineyards .
