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 tourism office in Saint-Emilion was extremely helpful and friendly. We booked both the "Underground Saint-Emilion" tour and a wine tasting tour through the office. The staff were very friendly and multi-lingual (I counted at least 7 different languages offered that day) and happy to help. They even stored some wine we purchased for us while we were on the...

Charming staff who were great finding activities for 2 young boys aged 5 and 7. They suggested a treasure hunt around the town where they were provided clues and had to physically walk around the town to find the answers. All based on the history etc of the town. Once complete you hand back to the tourist office who mark... More

Went out of their way to help including phoning places! The walking tour is a must: it gets you access to underground sites not open to public

Everyone we encountered from the tourist office had amazing English skills (my French is dismal). They were able to help with directions to our hotel, booking tours, advice as to where to shop and where to eat.

The office is recommended as the first stop in Saint-Emilion. The staff were helpful and friendly. As it was a blazing hot day, they suggested staying out of the vineyards but to explore the town slowly and keep in the shade. There are a lot of very cool caves cut into the rock, so a visit to them was a... More

The people that work here speak great english and are super helpful. They set you up with all the tours that you want and all the information that you need. You must stop here before you do anything in town.

Parked in the free car park at the top of town and walked down to the tourist office. Nice air conditioned office with helpful multi-lingual staff. We wanted to know if there was a boulangerie and were recommended two. They also offer tours and will suggest vineyards to visit.

This office is very very helpful. The first thing you should do after reaching St Emillion is reach the tourist office. Its a little walk from the railway station but they will guide you with everything. They gave many helpful brochures which helped us decide on what we wanted to see there.

Helpful staff in this City centre location. Visit the historic buildings in behind that make up this complex. English, Japanese and Chinese are all spoken. They are friendly and easy going!
