Hi any advice on a stopover near Tours.   Thanks

Heading to the Dordogne from Cherbourg. Haven’t been down for years, well out of practice.

Plenty of sites will have closed for winter. From the ACSI book one at Tours that is open is Camping Tours Val de Loire. 61 rue de Rochepinard.

Thanks for that. I have looked at that one. Looks good.
Hoping for a list to choose from. Not too far off route. 😊

What dates? For winter travel Camping les Acacias is normally open all year round. For a summer visit I would go to Azay Le Rideau which has already been mentioned.

I've never had to book at Azay even in July / August - it's quite a big site and there is a lot of turnover on a daily basis.Had a night or two there on the way to the Dordogne or Ile de Re a good ten times.

Formerly known as Tours,Camping Val de Loire and also Camping Rives du Cher ---https://www.onlycamp.fr/les-campings-au-coeur-des-pays-de-la-loire/camping-tours-val-de-loire/
Just off the motorway at the south end of Tours. Azay le Rideau/ Les Sabots is good too but personally I wouldn't venture that far off route for one night - excellent for a 2/3/4 nights though.

I second the municipal at St Maure de touraine. We use it both ways on our Dordogne trips. There is another good municipal about 100k further on at Lussac-les-chateaux
