in the Allier & the Cher regions,
The Centre & the Auvergne,
The Pays of the Tronçais Forest,
& of the Bocage Bourbonnais,
the Sologne & the Berry St Amandois…
Please Come in & we hope we’ll be able to answer to all your questions.
“La Route des Chênes” was officially established since Novembre 2010 and we refuse to follow & abide by the administrative boundaries of both our regions. By now, we count more than 35 different partners.
Chambres d’hôtes , gîtes & small family hotels, restaurants, as well as Artisans-Artists and touristic sights.
We have decided to regroup first of all to get to know each other, and then to collorate & work together, as you know “the more we are, the stronger we get”!
Therefore, we felt the need to share our experience too. Meeting & talking made us culturally richer as well as stronger.
We all share the same common interest for this ancient Oak Forest of Tronçais & that remains our main goal and ancher.
But we do not offer a natural patrimony only. We also show you the cultural one, a real mosaic of wonderful & mysterious attractions, like the castles, museums, parcs and the multiple choice of Arts & Crafts ateliers.
You will have no worries, whatsoever, to keep busy & enjoy yourself here.

our motto :

our favourite African quote : “When branches argue , roots are kissing”
