Perched on hill said to have been used by Julius Ceasar as a military outlook Sancerre is a charming medieval town that has artfully blended its rich architectural past with a thriving modern community. The gite is located on a quiet street in the heart of the historic centre ville and steps away from bistros, cafes, and several Michelin recognized restaurants. If you'd prefer to use the newly renovated kitchen you can shop with locals at the boulangerie, charcuterie, fromagerie, or weekly market all just outside your front door. Sancerre also boasts many boutiques, galeries, and wine shops where you can find one of a kind locally crafted pottery, artwork, gifts, or wine from vineyards in the surrounding valley and abroad. Walk 2 minutes to the Maison des Sancerre (a child-friendly museum dedicated to showcasing the history of the famous local wine). If you want to see more of the Loire the bilingual staff at the local tourism office can help you with anything from renting a bicycle, scheduling a horseback ride, or finding the best place to play golf.
The village of La Borne is not to be overlooked, being a Mecca for international and local potters – visiting the quaint galleries of this village is like discovering a magical world
