St. Emilion In France

We woke up at around 2 o'clock in the afternoon last sunday and the weather was quite good. Instead of staying at home watching tv, hubby and I decided to visit St. Emilion. It is one of the touristic places here in south of france.

Saint-Emilion is located 35 km north-east from Bordeaux, between Libourne and Castillon-La-Bataille. This medieval town stands proudly at the top of a hill overlooking the Dordogne valley, and was built in the shape of an amphitheatre. From the moment the bell-tower can be seen, Saint-Emilion is an enchantment. The commune covers an area of 27 km².

Visiting this place is really a must if you guys will be coming here in France. In general, it is very touristic in the month of August but tourits were still around even if automn is already here. Of course when there is sun, much better to travel around and to take good pictures. That's my opinion. But anyway, this place is really beautiful. The structures are unique and ohhhh, one of the tasty wines come from St. Emilion. Their wines are in my favorite lists you know.
