ST-√ČMILION is well worth a visit. The limestone houses of this fortified medieval town tumble down the southern slope of a low hill, with the green vines surrounding the lower plains. There are hundreds of vineyards all split into their own areas such as; Montagne St.Emilion, Lussac, Lalande de Pommerol to name but a few. The Maison des Vin in Place Pierre Meyrat (+33557555055) can organise visits for you, but ring ahead as several days notice is required.
The town was named after the monk √Čmilion, who lived in a cave carved into the rock there in the 8th Century. A tour starts from his cave into the subterranean Eglise Monolithe and catacombs (daily 10-11.30am & 2-5pm ‚ā¨7 book via tourist office).

disabled through Raynaud‚Äôs disease. Holidays became very difficult and
