We've just come back from Ferme De Prunay, it was our 4th visit to the site and won't be our last. We absolutely love it. We are a family of four with two sons (11 and 14 and a dog). The kids spend most of their time in and out of the pool or at the play area. The bar area serves good food and wine and the pitches are the biggest we've camped on, it's like having your own back garden. The toilets and showers are clean and there are some lovely long walks for the dog, down past the farm and into the woods. Plenty to keep younger ones occupied and it's very quiet and relaxing if you just want to chill out by your tent or caravan. We'll definitely be going back.

On arrival at reception you are given a site map to choose your pitch and told where facilities are and where wifi available, plus how to order bread the day before and where to pick it up. Also given Loire tourist map and cycle route map, lots more leaflets available at reception area. Pitches vary from shaded in trees to open pitches in the area where the hedges have not developed, some pitches have electric plugs but they do not work, so you just pick another pitches electric as most seem to have 3 sockets, we were not offered extra cable, but they are available as next camper was given one. Plenty of toilets and showers available and normally hot or just let them run a bit to warm up. Dishwashing area also has 2 fridges a freezer, gas cooker and a microwave. Kids playground seemed ok, it's in 2 areas. Swimming pool next to bar, bar only open July and august. Nearest small town is Onzain with usual shops and a casino supermarket which is well stocked and open Sunday mornings and also does fuel. Most of the popular chateaux are no more than 40 mins away. You are in the touraine wine region, lots of producers sell direct any sign that says ( cave ) will have wine to taste and sell, we found the mont pres chambord wine coop in Mont pres chambord had a good selection and a good reduction in price if you bought in 6s. The cycle routes are all well signed and most of the circular routes are about 35 km with plenty of picnic areas or cafes to stop at. Blois was the best place for local markets, but the campsite will tell you where and when they are on.

We decided not to go too far south as we wanted to avoid the heat typical for the Med in the summer. However, that week Loire Valley experienced a heatwave with temperatures regularly hovering around 37C. Fortunately we had a massive shaded pitch (over 300sqm) surrounded by mature trees and bushes to give us plenty of welcome shade and privacy (which this campsite takes to a new level). As it was beginning of July there were lots of pitches to choose from.

Facilities were new and spotless. The owners who seemed to be working day and night would always greet us with a smile and nothing was too much to ask.

Unfortunately water in the paddling pool was a bit cooler than in the main one which meant our kids dragged us there all the time even though they were a bit a too little for it.

There were a few old bikes available for free which we used a few times for short rides and enjoyed them very much.

Due to very high temperatures we did not do as much sightseeing as we planned but visited Amboise, Blois and a few local villages. However, what I liked the most was the ambience of the campsite late at night. It feels more remote than it actually is which means you get the back to nature 'fix' but still have the old town of Amboise, chateaux and vineyards only a short drive away.

Just back from a lovely week at Ferme de Prunay. We were there with 3 adults and a 3 and 6 year old.

Facilities: there are lots of new toilets and showers with the aforementioned family shower rooms which were very popular. The bar area was great with lovely staff and a decent menu. Everything was reasonably priced but I wouldn't say cheap.

The TV room and indoor wee play area was nice for super wee ones.

The pool was great and the opening hours were relaxed- we were often swimming till 830pm! Saying that- it was clean and tidy every day and the water was very clear, despite it obviously being peak season- it was hoaching everyday.

Bread can be ordered every day and it's always warm when you pick it up- the pain au chocolate were the best I've tasted in France so far!

The kids playgrounds are a bit oldskool but safe and pleasingly full of kids having a ball.

Pitch: we booked 2 pitches but seeing the size of them (huge) we decided to put both our tents in one. We had a pitch on the field side of the site which has been recently developed- water and electrics on the pitch but it was very exposed with no shade whatsoever. Be aware of this if you don't have an awning or some form of shade with you/ better still ask for a map of the site and ask to pick your pitch.

Owners: Marine- the lady who takes the bookings is an absolute star- I'm not sure if she sleeps! She is always busy and has a lovely smile for everyone. Everyone was incredibly helpful and happy to help with any enquiry- whether it was about the great quality hire bikes or washing machine tokens!

Overall: this is a site still growing and developing. Part of the site is established and nice and shady and part is still growing. There are many pitches with mounds of earth as borders and young trees and bushes- once they grow a bit, things will be fine. The site is very popular with Dutch and now British holidaymakers and I believe the site was at full capacity during our stay. Everything seemed to work well but the water pressure. Showers tended to be on the piddly side and often not very warm due to the amount of usage.

Also- it's a fair walk for a 3 year old to go to the bathroom in the morning from the outer pitches- but these were small niggles in an otherwise great week.

The area is Chateau-Central and we visited a few vin-Caves on a bike outing. We canoed down the Loire and best of all hired a canoe and paddled up and under Chenonceaux Chateau. Mostly we just chilled and used the pool, which was a bit cold to say the least- I'm not sure if it's heated in peak summer!

I would thoroughly recommend this site to families particularly of younger kids. There's LOADS of kids, which was fab for us.

Second time to the site and we were not disappointing. Friendly welcome and again site was very quite so we had a great choice of pitches. Site has been extended on the side with open fields and there are numerous new water and EHU points around. Some of the pitches are separated by long mounds of earth about 1. 5m high, which had been covered in black plastic and trees/shrubs planted.

So if you can choose your pitch for the view and check the access on to it, as some pitchs you could not drive onto.

Being out in the countryside it was very quiet and dark at night. (Marvellous!)

Toilet/showers just great, lots of hot water, plenty of pressure and good quality finishes with plenty of space in the shower.

Supermarkets in Blois which is about a 15 minute drive away.

We had one of the tent pitches in the 'shady' areas of the campsite, although a bit too shady because weather was not that warm, it was a bit overgrown and a struggle to find hook up points which were a tangle of wires in another pitch. Generally for kids this site is great, it is in a very quiet location so at night really peaceful, they can wander to see the rabbits, chickens, goats, pigs etc. And its flat and perfect for cycling around. They have a pretty good little cafe/restaurant with basic but good value food and wine. Marianne was extremely helpful and obviously works really hard to keep everyone happy, she personally walked us to our pitch and always had a smile for everyone. There is a good playground for the little ones which is in view of a lot of tent pitches. The equipment for the older kids needed repairing and was taped up.

The pool is NOT heated which is probably a relief on very hot days but not to good if weather is cooler. Even my daughter did not want to stay in for long and I can't usually get her out of the pool! There are lots of showers and toilets and they have double/triple showers which are brill for getting all kids showered together with lots of room in one cubicle BUT - the

Water pressure was awful, down to a trickle and quite a lot of the time cold - so touch and go as to what you would get once undressed and ready to push the button! When they did work they were amazing though!

They run lots of free activities - bread making, walking the dogs (they call nature walks) tractor rides and feeding goats and sit on donkeys for photo. Unfortunately this is one of my other gripes, bearing in mind the farm animals are a big lure and hit for the kids, they were not very well looked after, the sheep needed shearing and was matted, one donkey which was very badly lame should have been (in my opinion) rested in a stable, the pony had overgrown hooves and the rabbits were extremely bony, kept in a pen with turkeys and chickens with no water bottle, just bowl of mucky water which made my daughter quite sad and concerned.

If you take your bikes, the 'la Loire a Velo' trail is not far away with excellent cycling along the Loire. You can pick it up from Chaumont-sur-Loire. Chateaux at Chaumont is also good, also trip to Blois and Amboise worth a day out.

General overview, great site, could do with a bit of attention, tidying up and TLC to the animals! If possible, wander the site before choosing your pitch to see what suits depending on weather and how close you want to be to playground etc.
