Le Prieuré saint Agnan
Bed and Breakfast on the banks of the Loire river, near Sancerre, on the Centre Loire Wine Route.
110 miles to the south of Paris, at the border of the Centre region with Burgundy, the Prieuré Saint-Agnan guest house in Cosne-sur-Loire owes its charm to its unusual position at the foot of the bell-tower of the Saint Agnan church in the historic quarters of the town.
Curiously built right up against its romanesque church, the Prieuré Saint Agnan guest house, an old Benedictine priory, is a magical place: a verdant little island of peace and tranquility in the heart of the small bustling town of Cosne sur Loire.
Véronique and Gilles have tastefully furnished this guest house in Burgundy so that each guest can enjoy the place’s warmth and friendly atmosphere. The rooms are designed to allow moments of well-being, including the Bell Tower room with its Balneo bath.
Since the priory was resold as a national treasure in 1790, it has always been a family home and today it retains this feel, offering five comfortable guest rooms.
Spread around a large lounge- library, the four first-floor rooms are reached by a wide exterior staircase: three have views of the Loire and the fourth, more secret, overlooks an interior courtyard onto the stained glass windows of the Saint Agnan church.
On the ground floor, the 'chambre du Clocher' (belltower room) enjoys its own access to the garden and its bathroom was created in one of the old wine cellars.
The large garden slopes down to the Loire and harbours a heated outdoor swimming pool, open from the end of April until the end of September.
Breakfasts are included in the price of the room. They are served in the large dining room on the ground floor.
They include varied breads, pastries, goat cheeses, fruit, homemade jams and yoghurts, Nespresso coffee and Dammann brothers tea.
It is a moment of sharing around the large table in the dining room. Again, the terroir and the quality of the products are honored in order to help you to start your day in perfect conditions.
Discover all the flavors of the Sancerre but also of Reunion at the table of Gilles and Véronique. After living more than 30 years in Reunion, they share with their hosts all the taste of this cuisine. They also know the recipes of the dishes of the Sancerrois terroir. Thanks to their friendly relations with the local producers as well as with the winegrowers, you can taste quality products that make the reputation of the region. Spend a convivial and full of sharing moment at the table of Prieuré Saint Agnan!
A stay in the Prieuré Saint Agnan guest house in the Nièvre is an invitation to relax and unwind. The beautifully staged garden reveals many facets over the seasons. It offers a great view on its own, while remaining in harmony with the Loire below.
Its large garden overlooking the Loire offers beautiful views as far as the Sancerre hills. The excellent location of Prieuré Saint Agnan means that you can visit Cosne sur Loire and enjoy the many restaurants nearby without having to drive.
On the Wine Route of Centre-Loire, the Prieuré Saint Agnan is an ideal stopover for visiting the vineyards of Sancerre, Pouilly Fumé and Coteaux du Giennois.
