Region: Numenor

Location: The southwestern area of the Mittalmar, the central region of Númenor.

Description: But for the most part the Mittalmar was a region of pastures. In the south-west there were rolling downs of grass; and there, in the Emerië, was the chief region of the Shepherds.

Unfinished Tales, Part 2, Ch 1, Description of the Island of Númenor

Therefore [Aldarion and Erendis] ... came to Emerië, where were rolling downs of grass, and it was the chief place of sheep pasturage in Númenor; and they saw the white houses of the farmers and shepherd, and heard the bleating of the flocks.

Unfinished Tales, Part 2, Ch 2, Aldarion and Erendis

As betrothal gift Meneldur gave to Erendis a fair portion of land in Emerië, and there he had built for her a white house.

Unfinished Tales, Part 2, Ch 2, Aldarion and Erendis

Therefore ere long she left Armenelos, and went to Emerië in the midst of the Isle, where ever, far and near, the bleating of sheep was borne upon the wind. "Sweeter it is to my ears than the mewing of gulls," she said, as she stood at the doors of her white house, the gift of the King; and that was upon a downside, facing west, with great lawns all about that merged without wall or hedge into the pastures. Thither she took Ancalimë, and they were all the company that either had.
