Saint-Sauveur-en-Puisaye is the birthplace of the writer Colette. You will discover its museum, its birthplace (open to the public since May 2016), an itinerary that traces the path of the writer in 37 stages, as well as the museum of the arts of the Forge where you will plunge into the trade of blacksmith. But also the Sarrasine tower, emblem of the village by its imposing size. The village also offers art galleries, restaurants, antique shops and other shops. As well as a place of concerts and shows at the Poetry. Enjoy the two hiking trails from the Colette museum, "the Colette trail" - 6 km, and "the path of madness" - 12 km. A geocaching course in 6 stages will also allow you to discover the village in another way. The Tourist Office offers from May to September a themed hike "in the footsteps of Colette" with reading the texts of Colette on the sites described (by reservation).
