This is an extremely old edifice dating back many centuries. It's a bit of a climb (190 steps), but worth the effort when you reach the top. You can literally see for about 25 miles in all directions.

Maybe not the smartest thing to do, right after lunch in the midday heat, climbing all those steep steps to the top of the tower, but the view made it all worth it.

Limited opening hours but if you strike lucky steep stairs lead to a fantastic viewing platform. Well worth the effort and small charge.

Place only opens at 2pm. All it is is 135 steps to the top of a tower, giving you a good sentry's view of the local area all around.

This tower has many steps to the top but is well worth a visit to see the view from the top. We would certainly recommend a visit here.

An amazing view of the town and surrounding countryside - vineyards and the Loire. Beware, there are 195 steps to the top.

Incredible value...2.5 Euros for fantastic views of Sancerre valley. A must a nod if the skies are clear awesome! Steps not steep and plenty of resting spots if you need them.

Well worth the 2.50€ and the close to 200 step climb to the top, the views are worth it, 360 degree. Choose your time well, or you will be looking at fog or clouds, we had the luxury of waiting for the right day, got...More

The nearly 200 step climb is well worth it. The view from the top is spectacular and provides a wonderful look at the narrow streets of the hilltop village below, as well as the surrounding valley.
