A bit of history

During the First World War, nearly half a million American soldiers were temporarily transited to Noyers-sur-Cher for training before heading to the Front farther east.  These soldiers were given nicknames, such as "Doughboy,” “Yank,” “Sammy” or “Teddy.”

Sammy refers to Uncle Sam, the emblematic character who personified the U.S.A. as a nation during WWII.

The Sammy Room is thus named for the American soldiers and for the engravings that some of them carved into the Tuffeau stone of this former barn.

This room has kept all its original charm thanks to its stone walls and its hand-hewn exposed beams reaching a central height of 13 feet.
