It lies just a couple of km east of Pouilly-sur-Loire, famous for the wine known as Pouilly-Fumé. Saint-Andelain sits on a hilltop and is surrounded by vineyards that are part of the Pouilly-Fumé wine region. It is very picturesque when viewed from either the train running south from Paris to Nevers or from the new high-speed highway, A77.
