Bordeaux, FR Day 2: St. Emilion
Say hello to our car! yep, def cant mistake that for anything else. We had a minor snafoo with picking it up (FYI when traveling in small cities, when you reserve a rental car for 10:30AM it may no longer be there when you roll in around 1:00PM…)
on our short drive over to St. Emilion, we just happened to stumble upon this chateau-turned-into-hotel. is france awesome or what? we decided that an afternoon break from our hard work of waking up, eating lunch, and driving 20 min was clearly in order and had coffee & wine.
finally, St. Emilion! St. Emilion is a little cute & quaint town nestled within the Bordeaux region. Lined with narrow cobblestone streets and scores of wine shops and galleries, it was a great little town to explore for a lazy afternoon.
if you do end up making your way over to St. Emilion, I highly recommend walking up to the King’s Tower, where you can get a panoramic view of the city as well as the church, as well as the rolling green hills of the vineyards:
