Located in the scenic heart of France, Nièvre offers a captivating blend of lush pastures, tranquil lakes, and historic architecture. The region is renowned for its exquisite Pouilly Fumé wines, crafted primarily from the Sauvignon grape. The Circuit des Vignobles provides wine aficionados an opportunity to explore and taste these unique wines, which stand apart from the Burgundy appellation.

Historic Chateaux and Manor Houses

One of Nièvre's architectural gems is the 15th/16th-century Palace of the Dukes in Nevers, often considered the first of the Loire Chateaux. This grand chateau is complemented by the town's medieval ramparts and gothic Cathedral. Another must-see is the 12th-century Chateau of Bazoches, transformed into a military garrison by Vauban in 1675. These historic properties make Nièvre an ideal location for those interested in chateaux or manor houses.

Motor Racing and Cultural Heritage

The Magny Cours Formula 1 circuit, situated just south of Nevers, hosts the French Grand Prix every July. Nevers itself is a cultural hotspot, featuring the Frederic Blandin Municipal Museum, dedicated to the region's iconic pottery.

Charming Towns and Waterways

Decize, where the Loire Lateral Canal meets the Nivernais Canal, is a vibrant town with Romanesque chapels and remnants of ancient fortifications. Clamecy, another picturesque town on the Nivernais Canal, was once the hub of the logging industry and now hosts an annual water jousting event.

Outdoor Activities

The National Park of the Morvan offers a plethora of outdoor activities, from walking and riding to mountain biking. The Lac des Settons is a haven for water sports enthusiasts.
