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 staff here are most helpful and fluent in several languages. say what is of interest to you and they are eager to make a plan for your visit. get a key from them also to enter the church tower across the small plaza in front of the office. there is a small gift shop associated with this office.

We booked to go and see the Saint Emilion underground tour and the tourist office booked us on the French tour instead of the English. The guide was really nice and tried her best to give us some information in English. After the tour we went back to the tourist office they did not admit that they booked us on... More

Always very helpful at this Tourist Information. In the summer it can get very busy in this region, September and October are still lovely weather and the staff are just as helpful all year round. It has a little shop inside also for keepsakes.

Stayed on the outskirts of the village and wentimmediately to the Office of Tourism. Staff who assisted us was great. Gave us a detailed map of the village and explained everything we wanted to know. Helped us with tickets to underground tour (which was fantastic). Spoke English well and was very polite and engaging.
