Its namesake wine is well known internationally, but Sancerre itself is quite a small medieval hilltop town with a cobweb of streets leading down the bean shaped hill and out into the vineyards. It’s got beautiful views over the Loire River, and its light, pale, airy beauty leads many people to liken it to the wine it’s famous for. The best places to stay in Sancerre can be found in amongst the winding streets of town, or else out in the vineyards.

But whether you want to be close to the significant local sights - the Belfry of St. Jean and the numerous grand hotels and maisons dating from the middle ages - or closer to the rows of Sauvignon grapes, which mark out the easternmost border of the Loire’s main growing region, the best places to stay in Sancerre all offer spectacular views and excellent wine lists.
