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!

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

This was much larger and better organized than I expected! They had people to talk to about tours and local activities, but also someone that could answer quick, simple questions and give ideas in multiple languages. I popped by a couple of times, and was quickly helped. They did a great job in assisting me.

I recently had an enquiry with regards to St Emilion and having experienced a few less than responsive tourist boards across France I was expecting a similar response. I was needless to say delighted by prompt service and support received from them. St Emilion itself is a great place and the tourist board I am sure will assist in every... More

Been there a couple of times to find out more attractions. Washrooms (Toilets) were located outside the church and there was no door

Had dealings with two female members of staff. Both were very good. Spoke excellent English. Bright, cheerful and informative. Dealt with our enquiries as one would hope.

We felt that we did not really get the help we wanted. There were many things that the staff did not know and the information that they did have we needed to drag out of them. We had a lovely wine tour arranged by them though.

We dipped into France during our trip to Spain in order to visit Montaigne's Tower, which is approximately 20 minutes from Saint Emilion. We loved Saint Emilion! We were astonished to find that the agent we spoke with in the Tourism Office did not know anything about the Tower and did not know who Montaigne was--even though the Tower is... More

The tourisme office is at the top of a hill where you have to walk over very large stones on the street etc. and taking your bag with you is rediculously hard. Even though we were not able to pick up our bikes until the next day for a three day rental, they had absolutely no desire to care about... More
