Saint-Emilion : new activities 2018

January 2018, a new year has come. Time to make some travel plans.

With a bunch of new activities, wine capital Saint-Emilion is more than ever a holiday destination worth a visit when in France.

If you are a wine lover, a visit to the Bordeaux region should be on your bucket list.

Wine tastings, visits to the most prestigious of wineries in Saint-Emilion, or to the smaller family run businesses, whose passion is passed on from one generation to another.

But if you love nature, cultural heritage and local gastronomy, this is the place to be for you too.

Saint-Emilion is the perfect spot for long walks and bike rides along the picturesque rolling vineyards. But from now on you can also visit the area in more original ways: in a tuk-tuk or a sidecar.

During your stay in Bed&Breakfast Bleu Raisin we will be happy to advise you on the numerous activities and places to go. Contact us for more information, availability or bookings.

Saint-Emilion, a place to enjoy gastronomy

Inspectors awarded 70 new stars in the Michelin Guide France for 2017, revealed at a ceremony in Paris on February 9th. Several Bordeaux château owners had reasons to celebrate.

The Logis de la Cadène restaurant in St-Emilion gained its first star. Logis de la Cadène is one of St-Emilion’s oldest restaurants. The Michelin star will be a welcome endorsement for Boüard de Laforest family, owners of nearby Château Angélus, who acquired the restaurant in 2013. It is also a fillip for the restaurant’s 29-year-old chef, Alexandre Baumard.
Château Pavie, which was upgraded alongside Angélus, also saw its Hostellerie de la Plaisance restaurant upgraded from one star to two.

Last but not least, there is Les Belles Perdrix, who maintains its 1 star. Owned by and adjecent to Château Troplong Mondot, this restaurant benefits from an exceptional location high up in the rolling vineyards of Saint-Emilion.

In 2017 the small and charming medieval village of Saint-Emilion offers no less than 3 Michelin-starred restaurants. It is time to come and discover!

B&B Bleu Raisin is situated at no more than 15 minutes from all of these the restaurants. Waking up with a view to the vineyards is all you need to complete your journey to the Bordeaux region: https://www.bleuraisin.com/en/
