St Emilion is the type of place that you immediately fall in love with, an affair that will last for years. The village is known as one of the most beautiful in France and is situated about 45 minutes west of Loubes Bernac, near the town of Libourne (another gem set on the banks of the Dordogne). Famed for its wine, St Emilion is a must. 

The village derives its name from the hermit Emilion who used to live in the town's caves in the 8th century. The remarkable church was hollowed out from the rock over the following three centuries. The area is now more famous for its wines, with the town playing host to numerous wine shops and "caves" (wine cellars) supplied by the many surrounding vineyards.
