Saint Emilion is renowned for wine, but it wasnt the wine that took me to this wined village. It was recommended by a friend who knows the place well to think it is good for the first trip in the new year. Bordeaux was my base.

The spirit of the Stones

You will never be alone in Saint Emilion. You will be accompanied everywhere by the spirit of the town and the memory of its founding fathers.

Above the Ground

Where ever you go in the town, you will be struck by the inherent harmony. All the houses have the same warm colour, as they are made from the luminous.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:An Extraordinary Ensemble of Underground Monuments.
  • Cons:The weather is not very good for Photography
  • In a nutshell:A jewel of Stones.

    A terrible restaurant. Fries were totally cold. Medium rare steak was well done. Avoid this place.

    Since I always drink wine rather than beer, I was quite fascinated by your descriptions, suggestions, and insights about Saint-Emillion. Thanks for a quality look at a beautiful place.

    The wines would certainly be an attraction. Visibility can sure be bad, but when it clears.. just delightful. Some great vintages there:-)
