Local attractions

History first? Local medieval town Saint-Satur is a kilometre from Sancerre, a village built up around a medieval castle and still with centuries-old houses in its Old Town.

Within about 22 kilometres from Saint-Satur are La Charite-sur-Loire and the Abbey Church of Notre-Dame, once one of the wealthiest monasteries in France and now a UNESCO world heritage site as one of the places on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela.

Another historical option is Aubigny-sur-Nère, the French town with Scottish and Stuart connections that still celebrates its French-Scot alliance on Bastille Day. You could also have a look at Nevers, dating back to Roman times and with a spectacular Ducal Palace and Place de la République.

And then biking… among the many Loire Valley cycle routes is the 11-kilometre ride from Sancerre to Couargues to Pouilly-sur-Loire, past the Sancerre vineyards and with spectacular views over the Loire valley over to the woodland of Puysay in the distance.

And then wine? Over 300 vineyards are in the area in and around Sancerre, covering a few thousands hectares of hills. Several of them have wine caves where visitors can stop to try and buy the wines; if you're in the region to pick up some French vino, make the wine centre of the Maison des Sancerre an early stop.

The wine regions of Pouilly-sur-Loire and Menetou Salon are also close by.
