 We came across this site when cycling to the chateau. What a find! We were able to pitch right next to the river, although a long cable was needed for EHU! The toilet block was clean, and the washing machines efficient. Bread available from a van in the morning.

OH was able to kayak upstream, although the Loire was low so he couldn't get all that far. Others were paddling and swimming too. The best thing about the site was being able to cycle to visit various chateaux, or enjoy the marked cycle routes from the site.

 Just returned from an amazing 2 weeks at this site. Amazing location, our pitch had a wonderful view of the Loire! Toilets and showers basic but regularly cleaned, we used the additional unit at the far end as nearer to our pitch than the main ones. Bread van came around every morning with amazing bread and pastries at normal boulangarie prices! Reception staff were very helpful. Free wifi around the check in hut, if that important to you. One thing I would say though some pitches require longer leads to get to electric if your picky on your pitch, we had to go to local Auchan to purchase extension lead as our lead wouldn't reach to the pitch I chose. Lots or little to do which ever you choose, evening spent drinking wine and watching hot air balloons float up and over. Lidl and Casino shop in next town 2km's away. Reasonably priced two adults with electric under 12 euros a night. With regards swimming mentioned in previous review when we were there there was lots of people swimming in the river.

 Agree with everything the previous reviewers have said.

A fantastic spacious site spread along the edge of the Loire - although shame you can't swim in it.

We just turned up and asked for a pitch for a couple of nights in the busy season (end July) you have to pay a deposit of 30 euros for a barrier card and are told to pitch anywhere you like. So we found a hookup available with a view of the Loire and pitched up. Great facilities.

Would liked to have spent more time in the area, obviously loads to do. Lovely boulangerie in the town, best croissants so far ! If you're casual cyclists like we are and want to cycle to Blois, recommend setting off in the morning as it's not as flat as you think it's going to be !

Visited the International jardin festival at the chateau, like a mini Chelsea, you only need a couple hours there so we went at the end of the day about 5pm.

It was exciting when the hot air balloons came overhead.

11 euros a night so great value.

Think this a site for couples or families with older children/teenagers.

 Recently returned from our second visit to this super municipal campsite, which I can’t recommend highly enough. We stayed 10 days last year and decided to go back as there was still plenty in the area to see.

This is the heart of the Touraine which is chock full of chateaux, vineyards, wine caves and farms. By late August last year the sunflowers were starting to look a bit droopy; hence our decision to go back a few weeks earlier to catch them at their best.

The site is large, stretching along the south bank of the Loire. Pitch marking isn’t terribly obvious – in fact we didn’t even notice it at first. We were told we could pitch anywhere we liked so you just have to be a bit considerate. In two visits of 10 days each we had no problems with anyone pitching too close. It was extremely hot during both our visits so many people were choosing to pitch under the trees for shade.

The main facilities block is quite central with approx 5 toilets, 4 showers and 2 hand basin cabins in the ladies. Washing up sinks outside and a washing machine and tumble drier. The block is well maintained and cleaned daily but the lights obviously attract flying insects at night, particularly in hot weather, so last thing at night and first thing in the morning there can be quite a lot of deceased midges around!

The site is popular with cyclists who mainly only stay one night, in teeny little tents, before moving on the next morning. I thought this year there were more motorhomes and caravans than tents. No pool or much to entertain children if such things are important to you.

The ground is sandy, possibly more so close to the river, so easy to pitch. On the other hand we had 2 nights of summer thunder and lightning with strong winds and rain on the second, when we were starting to get a bit worried about the stability of the tent, but it only lasted a couple of hours (seemed longer at 4am!) and we emerged unscathed to beautiful blue skies the next morning.

The village and chateau of Chaumont are only a few minutes’ walk. Plenty of cafes and restaurants to be had. Our absolute favourite is a pretty café/tea room called La Détente Gourmande, whose salad dishes with local charcuterie and cheeses are to die for.

Aside from Chaumont, with its international garden festival in the summer, you have any number of chateaux within easy driving distance including the famous ones like Chenonceau, Chambord, Cheverny, Blois and Amboise, and lesser known ones like Beauregard and Montpoupon. Amboise and Blois, in opposite directions from the site, are good sized towns with plenty of facilities and weekly markets. Onzain, just across the river, is small and quiet but pleasant. It has a good Casino supermarket which is open on Sunday mornings til 12. 30pm.

There are a few hot air balloon operators nearby and it’s beautiful to see the sky dotted with them in the evening whilst you relax with a glass of wine and some local goats cheese!

Our pitch, with EHU, was €11 per night so an absolute bargain. We’ve pretty much done the area now so will go somewhere different next year, but I’m a little sad that we won’t be going back again, for a while at least.

 Lovely campsite at the side of the Loire, walking distance to the village and chateaux, very good value, we paid less than 10 euros a night (without hook up). Central shower and toilet block was clean and tidy, also had motorhome service point which was free to use for residents. Typical of most of the municipal sites we have stayed at, good value, clean facilities, bit basic (which we like). Great base for the Loire valley and right on the cycle path.

 We discovered this site whilst cycling on the Chateau a velo from La Grand Tortue in the village of Cande sur Beuvron. We had planned to go for a quiet cycle ride, but ran into the Fete a Velo, where something like 2000 cyclists turn out in the first week in September for a family day out. The site is along the banks of the Loire and it is beautiful and moreover very tranquil. It is well equipped with a nice clean modern showerblock and has a dedicated motorhome service point. It is a short walk to Chaumont and its chateau, which hosts an International Flower Festival, which it has been doing for the last 20 years. It is superb. The site fees are less than 12 euros but you will need to pay cash and there is a returnable cash deposit for the barrier card. This is a fine example of a municipal site at its best.

 We visited this site in August, just looking to be nosey for future camping trips. We could see it fron the other side of the river driving along the Loire from Blois.

There were plenty of pitches even in the height of the summer. It is lovely and peaceful stretching a long way along the river Loire. There are electric points in boxes around the site and water points and sinks dotted around.

There is a small children's play area. You access the site from the bridge which crosses the Loire, go under the bridge, the site has an office and an entry barrier.

You can walk to the town and chateaux fron the site along the path. There were canoes for hire further along. The town has the chateau and a lovely hotel/bar. You would have to mind small children as the Loire is not fenced off.
