Cultural, Historical, Natural, Religious


If a little excursion sounds tempting to you, take a bike ride around the place where the demarcation line was formed during the Second World War between occupied and free France. Controlled by German posts, this interior border affected not only the inhabitant's everyday lives, but also economic and administrative organisation between 1940-1943. What's more, Château Renaud, a noteworthy example of classic architecture located in the middle of a beautiful natural park, was the headquarters of a local military command. Be sure not to miss the Notre-Dame church which is also in Germigny-l’Exempt, as it is one of the most important Romanesque churches in Berry. Finally, the Robinson leisure park in La Guerche-sur-l’Aubois is an ideal place to relax, take advantage of water sports and to swim.
