Cloitre des Cordeliers (Cloister where friends meet) is just up from the center of St Emilion (a beautiful medieval city) and is the ideal spot for celebrations - so grab a bottle of Blanc Brut les Cordeliers, order some hors d'oeuvre's, and make yourself at...More

This is an interesting spot with nice gift shop and bar. The architecture is worth a look and enjoy the peaceful garden inside. It's right along a walking route into town so it makes an easy and quick stop.

So this old and classified building is currently on restauration work. A good souvenir shop and a nice bar where you can buy a picnic basket then head to the garden !!

Nice place to sit outside and have a glass of wine with cheese in similar fashion to what one would do in a Roman piazza while viewing a portion of Hadrian's wall over a bottle of Barolo. :-)

The cloitre is worth popping into whilst walking the town but will not distract you for all that long.

The cloisters are mostly in ruins and are under reconstruction. That said the place has a certain charm. It is the sales outlet for a company making sparkling Bordeaux wine. They are commercially focused, and having to enter and exit through the gift shop is...More

We visited the Cloisters while it was under construction and were unable to see the majority of the property. I’m surprised they decided to undergo construction in the middle of tourist season, but that was the case. I would skip this if you plan on...More

We enjoyed a nice break here during the extreme heat this summer. Cheese, bread, and their sparkling wine was available at the bar. The courtyard and garden was lovely and the staff was pleasant.

A phenomenal place that made it one of preserved area of SE to be proclaimed one of the UNESCO’s heritage sites. There is a feel of calmness in here.
