Sancerre is a name wrapped in history and enchantment.

The rolling hills producing some of the finest red and white wines in France, the winding streets leading to the rocky outcrop above the town; offering staggering views of the surrounding landscape.

This is a town to be enjoyed on foot, so take a stroll through the ramparts along the cobbled street of Chavignol towards the Saint-{ierre church with it’s magnificent belfry. From the Connétable tower you can enjoy 360 degree views of the Loire which will truly take your breath away.

Take the rue de la Panetterie to the Nouvelle-Place and reward yourself with refreshing drink and something to eat on the sunny terraces amongst the artisan boutiques, wine cellars, book shops and boulangeries.

What better way to remember your stay in Sancerre than by taking home some of the finest delicacies from the local area? The Crottin de Chavignol cheese is celebrated all around the world and the small vineyards in the area produce award winning wines.

Finally the more intrepid will enjoy an exhilarating hot-air balloon flight, or even a paragliding trip amongst the clouds. What an unforgettable experience!
