in Saint-Émilion

“I was born in Angélus, and it has made me what I am today.
I walked to school in Saint-Emilion from here throughout my childhood, following the high stone walls that line the path into the village”…
Saint-Emilion is the cradle of the de Boüard de Laforest family.

Walks & Leisure

The monolithic church and its bell tower

The monolithic church is an underground religious building dug out of the rock in the early 12th century in impressive proportions (38 metres long and 12 metres tall). Set in the heart of the medieval town, the monolithic church recalls the religious activity of the town during the Middle Ages, and its unusual design is the subject of great intrigue.

Bell tower view

The monolithic church’s bell tower is the highest point in Saint-Emilion. Climbing its 196 steps is no easy feat, but at the top an amazing view of the town and its jurisdiction can be enjoyed. It is open daily throughout the year.

The Collegial church and cloisters

Adjacent to its cloisters with a central garden symbolising the Garden of Eden, the most imposing church rises up on the upper part of town. During the Middle Ages, the canons were able to look out from here to survey the correct functioning of religious life in the town.

La Tour du Roy

The “castel daou rey”, meaning the King’s Keep, is the only Romanesque dungeon still intact in Gironde.

Macaroon production

After wine, macaroons are the great speciality of Saint Emilion. They have been made there since as early as 1620 and were first produced by a religious community, the Ursulines.

Today, Nadia Fermigier, who succeeded Madame Blanchez, is the sole custodian of the true recipe dating from 1620.
