Guide to the Loire regions



Église Saint-Aignan
This pretty little church is situated on a quiet back lane in the village. Dedicated to Saint-Aignan, it was constructed in the 11th Century although parts date back to the pre-Romanesque era. Passing under the timber porch and into the church one is immediately confronted with a series of impressive frescos; discovered in 1911, they had been preserved for centuries under thick layers of paint. They are believed to date back to the 12th Century, given that they are similar in style and content to other examples found in country churches from around that period. On the inside of the arch that leads into the choir there are images depicting the labours of each of the 12 months, with September dedicated to the grape harvest. Open every day between 09h00 and 18h00 in winter and from 08h00 to 19h00 in summer.

Église Saint-Germain
This modest village church is situated just to the north of Mehum-sur-Yèvre. The main attractions for the oeno-tourist are the 12th Century frescos found within. Restored in 1974 and classified as an ancient monument in 1990, one image depicts the wine harvest and the treading of the grapes. Open from 08h00 to 18h00 every day.  

Château de Quincy
This privately owned property located in the centre of the village was built in the style of Louis XIII and was classified as a national monument in 1992.
