What a beautiful tranquil site. Plenty of trees to find some shade (and we needed some).

The new owners Tina and Julian are delightful and have created a place to chill and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

The camping kitchen has a washer, fridge freezer & tumble drier - all free to use.

We used the permanent BBQs along with the table and chairs every night.

There are a couple of Glamping tents, one has a spa.

We cycled to the Loire (Saumur) which is signposted off the main roads and is pretty flat - the route takes you along some forest paths.

The local supermarket (Super U) is about 5 miles away in Vernantes.

This is one of the best sites we have stayed in and without doubt we will be back.

Revisited this site from last year. The new owners have done a fantastic job upgrading the facilities without detracting from the peace and tranquillity of the site. The toilet and shower rooms are high spec, modern and immaculate. In the camp kitchen which is a new addition you will find everything you would expect in your own home from cutlery, crockery, pots and pans through to an oven, microwave, washer & dryer. Julian and Tina gave us a lovely welcome and couldn't do enough for us. We will definitely revisit this site on our next trip - thank you both.

This was our first time in France using small adult sites only, what a joy, even though we had some awful weather it was glorius, the site is excellent as a base for Saumar and the Loire valley. The site was clean well maintained and peaceful, very relaxed, the current owners are selling but we hope the new owners maintain the look and feel as we will be back next year.

Well worth taking time to stay, highly recommend staying here.

This was the first time in a while we left our motorhome behind and journeyed in our car. We arranged for the hire of the small gite on site. It suited our requirements perfectly. It was clean tidy and very comprehensively equipped. John and Mary were very helpful and friendly. We were also able to see the campsite which looked well kept and with loads of space.

This is a rural site away from the hustle and bustle and is very peaceful and relaxing.

So if it's campsite or Gite you will be very happy.

This was our first visit to Camping La Fortinerie and we were not disappointed. It is a quiet site set in a beautiful rural location. If you want to 'get away from it all' this is the site for you. John and Mary the owners made us feel most welcome and were always pleased to help if needed. Places of interest such as Saumur and Angers are also within easy reach of the site.

A level well drained site set in a lovely quiet location on the edge of a forest, yet within easy travelling distance of Saumur and other places of interest. Friendly welcoming owners and we enjoyed two weeks of total relaxation.

Lovely rural site set amongst the trees only a few pitches but as John our host said 'pitch anywhere you like' which is just what we did. Visited some lovely places some on the suggestions of other campers. Thank you to the couple from hull who gave us so much advice on the area sorry we missed you when we left. Hope you got the note ? please feel free to get in touch. Anyway as said before a lovely quiet site within a rural location. Many thanks. Phil and dee

After our first stay on this small and quiet campsite we decided to see if our experience of last year was correct. Indeed, the site and our stay met with our expectations. The perfect hosts John and Mary were there when needed and 'disappeared' if everything was all right, except for a small chat every now and then. We enjoyed every minute of our stay, even when thunder and rain came to try to spoil our days. We visited some of the villages in the region with old churches, lovely old cottages and of course we enjoyed the French food in Mouliherne.

Well what a place to stay. We have just spent the most amazing 15 days on this lovely site in the Loire valley situated just 17 miles from Saumur. It's the 1st site ever that we really didn't want to leave. It's a mecca for any wildlife enthusiast with more cuckoo calls heard in this time than I've heard in my entire lifetime. Add to that the Golden Oriole, Black Redstart, Turtle Doves, Garden Warbler, Blackcap, Mistle Thrushes and a whole host of others with Secadas (sp)chirping away you could have easily believed you were in the tropics. The site was very quiet, located in a rural area and with the friendliness of John and Mary we couldn't have asked for more. We visited some stunning chateau's (all very different) and the trogolodyte caves of the area all again with very different characteristics. If you are into horses then you have the Cadre Noir in Saumur. A real must but sadly we missed the only show of the month but then, that is reason enough to revisit this wonderful site. The site is 320 miles from Calais on the absolutely fabulous Peage roads or if you have more time on your hands then a few more miles via the N a D roads most of which outclass the UK roads but a large margin.

The site is extremely well cared for, so go on, have a nice relaxing break in this lovely part of France, go there now!

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.
