The old town of St Emilion



St-Emilion is a small hill town about 20 miles from the city of Bordeaux, in the Aquitaine region of France.

It is one of the main red wine producing areas of the Bordeaux region.

The town is surrounded by vines and fortified walls

The town has narrow streets with old timber framed houses. There are shops, restaurants and hotels you can buy the areas famous light red wines.

Places to eat in the town

The area round the town is full of vineyards you can visit and buy wine from.

To get your bearings it is worth taking the tourist train of the major vineyards It takes about 40 mins there is a commentary in English which tells you all you need to know.

Try B Winemaker you can blend your own bottle of wine. We found it an interesting and informative place to visit if you want to see the wine making process. You can find B winemakers at 1, Sarpe 33330 Saint-Emilion

Chateau Franc Laporte is another Winerie worth visiting it was free to enter when we were there.You can find it on the D243 road Saint-Christophe-des-Barnes Saint-Emilion

You could take a quick basic wine course at Vignobles & Chateaux at 4 ru clu clocher in the village when we were there.

Hotel de Plaisance

Saint-Emilion is a name that arouses excitement in all of those who appreciate wine around the world. And the village itself is a gem and one of the most delightful spots in France.

Chantal and Gerard Perse will welcome you in an ambience where the classic splendor allows itself a few little moments of extravagance, in a decor signed by the master Alberto Pinto. Absolute sophistication in this haven of well-being. And the cuisine of Philippe Etchebest, Meilleur Ouvrier de France, is in total harmony with the setting.

We stayed in a gite in a small village a few miles from the town. This is a good way to live like the locals and enjoy the French lifestyle. It is also good value more so if several of you go together if you would like to stay in a Gite try here

Cottageto rent in st emillion picture

Enjoy the calm and the beauty of this 11th century detached stone house in the historic hamlet of Faize.

Famous St. Emilion itself is only 4 miles (6km) and its mysterious underground town and church are definitely worth a visit.

During the summer, there is also a little train that takes you around the town to discover the vineyards. Bordeaux (28 miles) and the Dordogne river (12 miles) also lie within easy driving distance.
