We stayed in our tent for some 15 days at Camping La Fortinerie and we loved each and every minute, notwithstanding the days that rain came down like a curtain of water. Mary and John were there for information, for sharing some lovely plums and for a chat. Hospitality was great and the quiet spot of the campsite made us decide to stay one week longer than planned. Thanks John and Mary for letting us stay in you lovely flat the last night so we could pack our heavy tent when it was still dry.

Stayed on this site for 7 nights in July, and we could have stayed another 7! We were the only outfit there at the time, but John & Mary couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.

As stated previously, this lovely, quiet, site is in the orchard to the side of the owners house, and can accommodate 6 outfits. The shower and toilet are in the old donkey barn, and were immaculately kept the whole time we were there.

As the site is deep in the countryside, a car is essential, although on lovely sunny days, it was nice to just chill and relax. The site is an ideal base from which to visit the attractions of the Loire.

All in all, a great site, with great owners.

Stayed for 9 nights and loved it. Total peace and quiet, (we were the only outfit on the site for most of the time) apart from the lovely dawn chorus from the birds - even had deer in the field one day. It's a typical CL, a large field with some shade, a loo, a shower and an outside washing up area. You can even get free WiFi.

John and Mary are lovely, there if you need them, but they don't interfere.

Lots to see and do in the area, although as you are in the countryside it does require a drive to get to them, Saumur takes about 15/20 minutes to get to, but the little village next door is only 4/5 minutes away and has most of your daily needs catered for.

We would definitely recommend it.

We booked at La Fortinerie on the basis of the other excellent reviews on this site - and we were not disappointed. John and Mary welcomed us warmly - and we spent 8 of the best camping nights we have had at this wonderful and peaceful site. At a time of year when many people visiting French sites complain about overcrowding we had masses of space. The facilities (in the old converted donkey shed) were clean and spacious. Hot water was always available for washing up and showers. It was a great base for exploring the Loire and bread and groceries were available in the nearby village. We will certainly return one day.

Typically, most often the nicest campsites are the ones you come across by accident! We turned up at John and Mary's when another campsite I had hoped to stay on nearby, turned out to be full on our arrival. I can't describe how lovely, peaceful and 'French' it is at Les Fortinieres, there were four other guests staying, in tents and caravans, but we slotted in easily and didn't feel cramped. We ended up staying for 2 nights rather than the one planned, and were able to do some washing and airing as well as relaxing and imbibing. The site was beautifully mown, and the facilities (in the old converted donkey shed) were clean and airy. Weren't able to do much sightseeing, but a couple of evening walks were enjoyable and I was quite sad to leave. Would definitely return.

Reviewer: Quadman 1 review from this member

A really tranquil site, 1passing car in 4 hours in the day and the hoot of the owls at night that's as noisy as it got. Planned to stay 2 nights stopped 4. The toilet and shower were very clean with an endless supply of hot water no extra charge. The use of a fridge at no extra charge a rare thing these day's. The owners were so friendly and accommodating, attractions to see The Trogealite caves and especially the BIOPARC ZOO, not to be confused with the run of the mill zoo's a must to see it's like jurrasic park with the birds flying free above your head and no bars to look through. We highly recommended this campsite
