Looking for a site that will suit my husband and me in our tent and our daughter, her husband and 3 teenage sons. Theyíve got a big motor home.

Ideally walking distance into a busy town or village. The boys would want a pool and very close access to the river for dinghies etc.
Pub ,restaurant on site or within easy walking distance.   

Any ideas.   Thanks

Take a look at Les Saules at Cheverny. Great site with swimming pool, bar and restaurant. If you take bikes itís a great centre for some wonderful safe bike routes. Worth a look.

The Loire covers a few hundred miles.

Are you looking for a couple of days or weeks - for your whole holiday or as a stop on the way to the Dordogne per a previous thread you started

Longcol.   Iím exploring both options at the minute. Had originally planned to stop one night in the Loire on our way to the Dordogne. Now thinking that the most economic option for my daughter , her husband and 3 teenagers,might be o stay in the Loire for the whole week.

As I said exploring both options. Thanks for all the suggestions so far

Try
Montsoreau

Close(ish) to the motorway but less frenetic than others in the Saumur or Tours area

I canít recommend a particular site that would meet all your requirements but just beware that there are large sections of the Loire where launching dinghies/canoes is forbidden as it is considered too dangerous due to the current. We were at a site on the Loire several years ago and there were signs everywhere about not going into or onto the river. Judging by the complete excess of signs, my guess is that someone may have had a nasty accident and the local Mairie wasnít taking any chances. We then saw similar signs at another site about 50 miles further along the river the following year.

My brother also gives Les Saules the thumbs up - he stayed there in a static with his wife and three teenage step kids but I know they have some good sized pitches for motorhomes.

Not been, but on our list is the municipal "Au Bord Du Loir" at Lude, which has free use of the town pool (indoor and outdoor) and is steps away from the village and its restaurants.
We're thinking of it as a stopover.

Municipal at Amboise ... on the island in the Loire, beside the town and famous chateau of the same name.

I launched my kayak from the site ... easy walk into town ... strategically placed for lots of other Loire 'goodies' ... see my review.

I'd second the site at Loches and also Saumur. I'd recommend Leonardo da Vinci for a visit if you go to Amboise.
