from 64 reviews Write review

Camping Les Portes de Sancerre is a quiet campsite on the banks of the Loire, which forms the natural border of the departments of Cher and Nièvre. You'll camp on shady grounds in a wine region around Sancerre, the medieval village where famous wines from the Sauvignon Blanc originate. A tasting in one of the local wineries is definitely an option!

Camping on the Loire

In the quiet campsite you will camp on shady touring pitches, the most beautiful of which are situated directly on the banks of the Loire. The site is separated from the river by a fence. Most of the touring pitches are undefined, which gives a spacious feeling. On the left side of the campsite you'll find most of the rental accommodation. They are mainly mobile homes, but also some lodge tents.

The Loire

There is a swimming pool next to the campsite, which guests can use. But especially the Loire, which runs along the campsite, is an attractive place for water lovers. Not only can you swim in the river. At the campsite you also get the chance to go canoeing or kayaking. If you prefer to stay on dry land a walk along the river bank will give you a nice impression of the river and the adjoining hilly landscape.

Old, but clean sanitary facilities

The sanitary facilities on the campsite are rather outdated and do not always work properly. However, the campsite staff is helpful. A facility that no longer works will be repaired as soon as possible. Moreover, the sanitary facilities are kept very clean.

Liked - The view of La Loire from our pitch was fabulous and the site was quiet with ample facilities for the number of guests.
Disliked - Our pitch was a lot smaller than we realised and had a tap located on it which took out even more available space. Facilities were not cleaned early enough in the day so they were pretty grim first thing. The whole place could do with some investment and updating.

Liked - The location is perfect, set immediately on the Loire with activities and cafes just a short walk outside the gates. It was so ideal that we extended to two nights.
Disliked - The shower stalls smelled from the drains. The bathrooms were clean and well maintained, but the drains gave a strong odor.

Travelling party: Young couple

Liked - Tranquil, good location of campsite next to the river and near a quiet village with amenities. Campsite has good sized pitches with hedges giving good privacy, and good facilities.

The Sancerre region is beautiful, and the winegrowers very friendly when you visit. The Maison Des Sancerres in the town is well worth a visit, very informative, with tasting afterwards.

Disliked - Pre arrival information (website) said municipal pool open from May to October, so we were looking forward to a swim, but it’s only open July and August (updated since). Swimming in the river is forbidden, according to signs along the river bank.

"Well-kept campsite on the Loire river. Spacious marked pitches with plenty of shade. At the campsite is the ability for tennis, golf and canoeing. Next to the campsite is an outdoor swimming pool. Very close to Sancerre, known from the wine."
