Crossed by the Yonne and the Canal du Nivernais, Châtel-Censoir is a small village of nearly 700 souls. The village derives its name from the bishop of Saint-Censure, the bishop of Auxerre. A castle was built on the hill overlooking the town. Châtel-Censoir was born. The Middle Ages is a hectic period where the castles are destroyed and then rebuilt next door. The village will prosper through the trade of driftwood, agriculture and cattle breeding. Surrounded by lush nature, the town is a privileged holiday resort for its calm and its soothing landscapes. Water plays an important role here. Small by size, but great by the richness of its heritage, Châtel-Censoir will seduce you.
