France Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan & Jane Fisher   Transport for Saint-Émilion, France
Car or train, it's easy to reach Saint-Émilion from Bordeaux and the Dordogne.






Regional TER trains run regularly between Bordeaux, Libourne, Saint-Émilion, Bergerac, Lalinde and Sarlat-la-Canéda in the Dordogne, making the run in about 2-1/2 hours.

The Gare de Saint-Émilion SNCF train station building is no longer used, but trains still stop beside it, 1.6 km (1 mile) south of the town center, across vineyards, at the foot of the hill upon which the town is set. L

Leave the station parking lot, turn right (north) on the D122 road (named Moulin Biguey), and go uphill through the vineyards to the town and the Place du Marché. (map).


Do not drive deep into the town as parking there is severely limited, and you'll only get stuck in traffic. Follow the signs to any of the public parking lots on the outskirts, and pay for parking by buying a ticket at a horodateur (parking ticket machine) next to the lot.
