This very old village arose from the confluence of the brook ” le Lien ” with the Loire and from the presence of numerous springs. It was a highly frequented cult village up to the Middle Ages due to this important presence of water.
Afterward, it is the closeness of Beaugency that allowed its development. Indeed Beaugency, fortified city, was very prosperous, possessed the first bridge on the river and a very active port for the transportation of the goods on the water.
The presence of 600 hectares of vineyards in our small village in 19th century demonstrates that the expedition of wines by the Loire was very used. It is at that period that the “Tonnellerie” (cooperage makers house) was built.
