Courances certainly owes its name to the presence of several lively springs around. In the 13th century, the village became a possession of Henri de Courances, one of the first marshals of France, and then was successively a seigneury of Cosme Clausse, the Gallards, the Potters of Novion and Charles Aymon de Nicolay. Joan of Arc stopped there on her way to Sully-sur-Loire. Personalities such as Henri IV, Louis XIII or Marshal Montgomery, from 1950 to 1957, stayed there. The village has a 17th century castle, rich in beautiful Louis XIII furniture, and above all a very beautiful park, decorated with numerous lakes.
