Camping in Cher
There are about 80 campsites in the Cher. Bourges, its historic capital which before the French Revolution belonged to the province of Berry, is practically the geometrical centre of France. The relatively flat department is criss-crossed by numerous rivers. To the east, the Loire river serves as a natural separation from the Nièvre, coinciding with the outline of the department.
Several campsites can be found close to the banks of the Loire river. The left bank of the river around the hilltop town of Sancerre is dotted with hills covered in vines. This is where the Sancerre appellation protects the red, white and rosé vineyards with an AOC.
Campsites in the north of the department can be found close to Aubigny-sur-Nère, the natural boundary between Berry and Sologne.
The many Berrichon trails can be explored on foot or by bike. A camping holiday in the Cher is an ideal choice to recharge your batteries with family or friends.
