The Route Jacques Coeur
A historic road in the heart of France
Birth of the road
The Jacques Cœur Route was created in 1954,
inspired by the owners of three Châteaux : Culan, Ainay-le-Vieil and
Meillant. Originally entitled the "Heart of France Châteaux Route", the
oldest Historic Route in France offered visits and tours as well as
night-time events and illuminations at these historic sites, setting the
style for the future.
Over the last 56 years the
Jacques Cœur Route has continued to develop and innovate and offers a
marvellous visitor experience. Half a century after its inception, its
membership has multiplied and the Route now includes 16 historic sites.
Four sites in Sauldre and Sologne
In Sauldre and Sologne, we are fortunate to host four sites in the Jacques Coeur Route with the "Musée des Métiers" at Argent sur Sauldre, the City of Stuart in Aubigny sur Nere, the Château de La Verrerie in Oizon and the Chateau La Chapelle d’Angillon.
