What to visit in the department of Nièvre
The Morvan regional park as well as the Bertranges state forest are, in a way, the lungs of the department and you'll find many hiking trails.
The Morvan Park thus offers the Nièvre many freshwater lakes. Lake Settons and its 2 islands, Lake St Agnan, Lake Pannecière and Lake Chaumeçon offer peaceful landscapes where water sports are possible.
The Yonne River or the Loire River - home to many wild birds - as well as the Allier and its natural site of the Bec de l'Allier are also part of the riches of the Nièvre, which is resolutely a water department!
We also recommend that you stroll along the banks of the Nivernais Canal or the banks of the Loire Side Canal.
Nièvre is also a department that knows how to tell us its history through its different towns and villages. Nevers, a city of art, is historically very rich: all you have to do is visit its historic district and its monuments such as Saint Cyr's Cathedral, Saint Etienne's Church or the Ducal Palace.
In Charité-sur-Loire, a pretty commune in the Nièvre region and renowned as the city of books, the priory of Notre Dame de la Charité has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and remains a must visit in the department. We also advise you to pass through the beautiful village of Apremont-sur-Allier in France. Its horse-drawn carriage museum, its floral park with magical scenery where each continent is approached, as well as its castle are to be seen. Finally, the castle of Bazoches and its stables, or the austere residence of Lantilly are waiting to be visited.
When to go to the department of Nièvre
With its oceanic climate, the department of Nièvre is most pleasant during the summer months from June to September. We recommend you to choose one of the mentionned months for your trip as there's risks of quite an amount of rainfall throughout the rest of the year!
Whether you own a caravan, a motorhome, or a van, get ready for a roadtrip filled with unique camping and sightseeing experiences!
