    Exploring St. Emilion is best by foot. There are narrow paved streets called tetres and small flights of steps called escalates which make it a bit hard to travel any other way.

    Bring some good walking shoes as St. Emilion is an elavate town and can only be reached by foot.

    While we were staying in St Ferme we visited many of the local area towns including this one. Having rented a car in Den Haag this was our method of travel.
    Parking was not a problem although I believe we found the only free lot in town. We did have to park outside town and walk in and up. And up.

    Free parking space

    When you come from the most common direction to St-Emilion (Bordeaux, Bergerac direction) you?ll find that there are 2 parking places. But for both you need to pay. If you drive up and at the end of the town turn right into a small street that seems to take you back along the village, you?ll find at the end of this street a free parking place just outside Porte Brunet.

    If you do a close up on this picture, you are going to see the French version of the high speed train generally referred to as the TGV.

    Paris is 3hours by TGV that is Paris - Libourne.
    Libourne Station 7km, Paris-Bordeaux-Toulouse line.
    Saint -Emilion station (Bordeaux-Libourne-Salart line by TER) 4 trains.

    Bordeaux-Libourne Line

    There are buses only up to Libourne, thats why I suggested earlier that you may require a rented car from Bordeaux. Am not very certain of getting a hired car from Libourne, but its not worth trying. Just get a car rental at Bordeaux.

    As we had hired a car for the week we would be traveling around France, we were able to arrive and leave at our lesiure.

    We arrived by car by late morning and spent the whole afternoon visiting the town.

    How to get in and out St Emilion

    by gwened Written Jun 19, 2015

    I come here by car, and even in tight corners there is always been parking; towards or coming from Bordeaux on the D122 you come to square or place Bouqueyre and you have parking and WC toilets there. off the D243 road you have parking at Villemaurin as well as espace Guadet ,near place Bourgeoise coming out or in to Libourne.
    a good route planner here is
    www.viamichelin.com
    and for traffic news I use
    www.v-traffic.com
    You arrive here by the RN89 (Bordeaux-Périgueux-Clermont-Ferrand); D936 great road (Bergerac-Bordeaux); D670 (Saint-André de Cubzac-Libourne-La Réole-Marmande); and D664 (Angoulème-Libourne-Bordeaux).
    And the autoroute or expressway with tolls the A10 (Paris-Bordeaux) exit Saint-André-de-Cubzac and the A62 (Narbonne-Toulouse-Bordeaux) exit La Réole or Langon.

    The airport closest is Aéroport international de Bordeaux-Merignac

    There is no other way to get here, than by private arrangements. I will recommend highly going to this village in a hired car having arrived Bordeaux by Air, TGV or By Bus.
    Its fun to do.
