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.
