Your private driver-guide will meet you at your hotel & you will depart for a full day tour of one of the gems of the area: Saint Emilion.
Saint Emilion is located approx. 45mins from Bordeaux. It is one of the most picturesque villages in France & also one of the major red wine areas of the Bordeaux wine region.
You will start the day with a walking tour of the medieval village with its quaint & narrow streets, UNESCO world heritage buildings, unique monolithic underground church, the Cordeliers Cloister...we suggest you climb to the top of the king’s tower from where you can enjoy a superb view of the surrounding vineyards.
We also encourage you to taste one of the specialties of the village: Macarons.
We will take you on a private visit of a very special shop. The real macarons of Saint-Emilion are handcrafted on the spot. Made every day with the freshest products and nothing artificial. The authentic recipe, that dates back to 1620 and handed down from the nuns, is followed scrupulously by Nadia Fermigier – the sole holder of the right to manufacture the real macarons Saint-Emilion. You will be able to enjoy a factory visit and tasting.
After lunch, we can take you to a Grand Cru wine property for a tour of the impressive underground cellars before a tasting.
