The medieval village situated on a cliff and structured as an amphitheatre, is part of the Saint-Emilion wine designation, a blond stone village reflecting the sun, symbol of the French elegance. History spared the village of its fluctuations, no wars nor epidemics, time went by leaving men with the necessary space to shape the landscapes and the vineyard while creating a real art de vivre. 
up until today, the land will know very few modifications and will keep and enrich its inherent qualities. 

Since the Early Middle Ages, this land has seduced men who built the village, ever changing, and from which you can sense the way of life: private houses, boutiques, fortified wall, monolith church from the 12th century and neighbourhood rotunda related to Jerusalem Holy Sepulchre, centuries old monasteries… 

In 1199, the king of England, John Lackland, gave the bourgeois of Saint-Emilion the right to create a town, allowing an organisation of the society around an elite of merchants, going all the way to England. The town opened up to international trade thanks to a wine, like in Bordeaux, whose qualities were celebrated in the 13th century, made possible also by the mastering of the fluvial link that is Pierrefite old harbour, today Saint-Sulpice de Faleyrens on the Dordogne. 

Walking in the little streets, going inside the churches and monasteries, your eyes wide open looking for signs, sculpted in stone or painted on the walls, bringing the visitor in a captivating symbolic maze: stones talk, linking Saint-Emilion to Ancient Egypt, Mary Magdalene to Isis, showing a path of inner conversion and philosophical education which find its origins in Alexandria.
