Saint-Émilion & Bordeaux

Situated above picturesque vineyards, the medieval village of St Emilion is a beautiful and charming area to visit. The historical town is perfect to explore through its cobbled streets, with plenty of boutique shops, cafes and restaurants to discover.

Famous to wine enthusiasts, this totally unspoilt medieval town is surrounded by a roll-call of chateaux, names that we normally only see on wine lists. A visit to this UNESCO world heritage site would not be complete without a tour of one or more of its iconic chateaux and a tasting of thier world renowned wines.

Just a stroll away from St Emilion is France's wine capital Bordeaux, also considered its second most beautiful city. Offering fine art galleries, excellent food and drink, and great shopping, Bordeaux is an absorbing place for a short break. Compact and largely pedestrianized, it is easy to explore its gracious stone houses and welcoming squares on foot while admiring its incredibile architecture. The 18th century style is visible all over Bordeaux making it an incredible luxurious and enjoyable city to spend time in.
