"A Medieval Wine Village" Saint-Émilion by King_Golo

Saint-Émilion Travel Guide: 113 reviews and 357 photos

Saint-Emilion is one of the major tourist destinations in the vicinity of Bordeaux. Unfortunately, this makes the otherwise very charming medieval village completely crowded in summer time, and one cannot fully enjoy strolling through the alleys of Saint-Emilion. It's worth a visit nonetheless - as usual, most tourists do not leave the main ways and you can therefore find yourself almost alone in the village if you do so.

Have a look at my Saint-Emilion tip, virtually visit nearby Bordeaux and Arcachon with me - or continue your tour through my pages here!
