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!

Made our first stop in town at the Tourist Information office. The staff speak good English and are friendly and helpful. Booked the afternoon tour they offer in English and were so glad we did as you will only get access to some of the points of interest that way. The explanations of the historical perspective made the sights even... More

The guy that we met at the tourist office when I love his way to be helpful. We spoke perfect English and was extremely informative. We strongly suggest that you go there before exploring the town.

The tourist office is handily located in the heart of the village. They offer an abundance of help and they sell the tickets to the Église Monolithe de Saint-Émilion. We stopped by several times during our three days in the village and received friendly assistance during each visit.

What a tourist office should be: centrally located, clean and well laid out, friendly multi-lingual knowledgeable staff and a good range of guides, from the basic to the academic. Loads of erasers and the like for children too.

This office was of great assistance (and in English) including for arranging a tour of the underground church. They rent quality bicycles in excellent condition and provide excellent trip brochure maps and instructions. We did two relaxing and picturesque half day rides, one taking us to the Dordogne River and the other being the "Route of the remarkable architectures" (deviating... More

This place is always busy but the staff is very helpful. We rented bikes here and took a ride around the wineries. Make sure to reserve your bikes a day before as they tend to book up.

This city was on our list, just an option if we have time. It is overcrowded, by they manage to sell to you their name. Not much to see in city itself. Were kindly explained about possibilities to see open houses at that day, basic settings about the city and suggestions what to see and were to go. Everything as... More
