For its annual edition, Saint-Émilion offers us the opportunity to attend a grandiose show. An autumnal flight of 15 hot air balloons, a chance for a few lucky ones to see the medieval city seen from above and to take in the whole extent of the viticultural World Heritage landscapes below.
Get ready to get your hands on the equipment, to inflate the 5000 square metres balloons and maneuver safely. The adventure requires a little organization for the 3 – 5 passengers on board. And forget your dizziness, the panorama that takes shape around you will overwhelm you. Here, nature is in direct contact with the eyes, no partition or even a porthole.
We believe the tourist office when they say that “autumn is probably the best season to observe the vine at sunrise”
Limited places available for the flights.
