Situated right in the heart of France, Sancerre and its impregnable feudal castle were the target of many wars and assaults. In 1621, the Duke of Berry decided to destroy this edifice - a symbol of resistance. Only one of its six towers was spared due to a lack of gun power: the Tower of Fiefdoms. At present, this unique vestige, 30 meters above the town’s highest point, offers a full panorama of the vineyard of Sancerre.
Sitting on the hill of Sancerre and overlooking its undulating curves, the new and majestic Chateau de Sancerre appears to be always ruling over the surrounding now peaceful town.
