Only 8 km south-west of the city of Tours, you will find camping La Mignardière, the ideal base for exploring the Touraine region. The region is rich in history, gastronomy and attractive nature. The camping site presents itself as ‘hôtellerie de plein air’ (open air hotel) which is an indication that everything revolves around pleasing the holiday guests.
Once arrived on the camping site you will feel the peaceful atmosphere. The pitches are situated along wide, paved roads and make a well maintained impression. The right hand side of the camping grounds is reserved for the permanent pitches and the rental accommodation with high hedges between the pitches and the left hand side is for overnight guests with less clearly demarcated pitches under scattered trees. If you have not brought your own tent, caravan or camper van, you can rent a chalet or mobile caravan for max. 6 persons.
The shop on the camping site stocks all basic necessities, such as daily fresh bread, and you can get snacks in the cafetaria. Restaurants and a supermarket can be found in Ballan-Miré, 2 km away, or in Joué-lès-Tours, on the other side of the D37. There is a market in Ballan-Miré on Fridays and Sunday mornings.
Near the entrance you will also find a heated swimming pool consisting of a covered and an open section, surrounded by an attractive terrace. Next to this are a tennis court and a soccer field/playing field. Further than that there is little entertainment on the camping site, but across the road is a fun park with an extensive range of attractions for young and old.

Pitches varied in size and shape. Toilet facilities clean but Spartan. Doors propped open even though temperatures in May could be cool. But seats and paper were a plus. Good base for visiting places of interest.
Staff very helpful and gave us good assistant. Went into Tours by bus connecting with tram. Day pass covered everything and cheap.swimmingpool nice in and outside.snacks ok and bread on site in small shop. Toilet block clean and toilet paper provided.
lovely relaxing site with a mixture of British, French and Dutch. Great pool, friendly staff and good value shop. Restaurant opposite was excellent but worth booking as gets full. Good size pitches and good motorhome service point. Cheap as well.
Stayed for one night only on way through. Nice clean site, good pool with bar and restaurant over the road, although I thought bar prices a little high. Very pleased with all facilities and would stay again. Really nice petting zoo over the road, nothing fancy but looked good value from what we could see (from the bar!).
This is one of the best campsites I have ever stayed at!!! Well kept, extremely clean, up together a must stop!
We stayed here for 3 nights in June 2016, and would certainly come back. The welcome was very warm and helpful, with a choice of pitches and full information about the area. It was roasting during our stay and the excellent pools were a wonderful place to cool down. We took the bus (stop outside the campsite) to the tram, and it took about 30 mins overall to get to the centre of Tours - all very straightforward. The pitches are a very generous size and provide a good bit of privacy. Overall, strongly recommended.
Lovely quiet campsite and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The toilet and shower/washing facilities were excellent and impeccably clean. Fresh croissants etc available every morning. Very conveniently situated for visiting Loire chateaux and Tours. Would definitely return here.
Wonderfully clean and well run site by friendly staff who live on site. Our third year of visiting. Ideally situated for visiting the beautiful Loire region and its stunning chateaux
Well placed to access from the major road that goes around the western side of Tours. The welcome was very warm indeed. The pitch was ok and the facilities pretty good. There is a pleasant lake a short walk away and a Lidl within walking distance. It would be a good site if you wanted to spend time in Tours or were passing as we were. We will definitely use this site again.
Excellent campsite and facilities, would definitely stay here again, lovely pleasant, helpful staff, bus stop outside campsite
