Beaugency, ranked among « The loveliest detours in France »


Ranked among “the loveliest detours in France”, Beaugency will enchant you with its atmosphere and heritage. This authentic medieval village in the Loiret department, near Orléans, has watched scene after scene of French history play out from a front-row seat. Perched for a time on the periphery of the crown lands, then integrated into the duchy of Orléans, this ancient fortress still safeguards many architectural traces of a turbulent past.

You can visit the Notre-Dame abbey church and the Saint-Étienne church; the Tour de César, a keep representing 11th century military architecture; the Renaissance-style Hôtel de Ville; the Tour du Diable, a tower still standing from the town’s first fortified wall; and other sites as well.

L’Écu de Bretagne is located right in downtown Beaugency, providing you with easy access to all of the town’s rich heritage. The Loire River pursues its course just a few hundred metres from our hotel. Take a walk or a bike ride along its banks in the fresh air. And for a white water experience, venture out on a canoe or kayak expedition.
