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 Office of Tourism is one well-organized and well-managed office! Nathalie was awesome - I had somehow misplaced my tickets, but she said to relax while she looked up my record. She found it and said we were good to go. Our tour guide of the City and Underground Church was terrific. She was well versed in the amazing history... More

They supplied a good map but directed us to a portable toilet outside. Offering the hospitality of adequate restrooms should be a required part of the job of greeting tourists!!! The gift shop had a few possibilities but could have sold much more. The office space was large, with almost no place to sit down. No water. This idea of... More

Very helpful. We took the class it offers, which was good. The instructor did the class in both French and English, which took up a bit of time saying everything twice, but still a nice class.

The staff at the tourist office are so helpful and represent this town magnificently. Go here to get local maps, list of vineyards to visit, book a ride on the road train around outlying vineyards .... or even to get access through the ancient wooden door to the peaceful cloisters beyond the hubbub of the town.

This tourist office is very helpful. They spoke English very fluently and advised tours in our language. They also booked us on an excellent tour and gave us a map of the town. I'd recommend going here first before exploring.

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.
