Within walking distance of the centre of the historic town of Loches, on the banks of the Indre river, you'll find the charming campsite La Citadelle. This natural campsite is ideal for a relaxed holiday with the entire family. Kids will have plenty of fun at La Citadelle with the lovely playground. Behind the city walls of Loches there are a mishmash of medieval streets. Twice a week there is a market with lovely regional products. Certainly try the special goat's cheese and the tender chicken.

Green pitches

The pitches are located on separate fields and partially separated from each other with plants. The pitches are spacious and some have their own sanitation facilities and a kitchenette for an extra fee. How convenient! In total you can choose from four different categories, from simple to "Gold". You always have a sunny lawn with plenty of privacy.

Accommodations in all shapes and sizes

The rental accommodations also fall into four categories, from relatively simple Coco Sweets (two to four persons) and two person huts to mobile homes with two bedrooms, your own terrace and complete furnishings. The largest accommodation is the "Grand Espace" (four bedrooms). In short, plenty of choice.

Entertainment

Children can play in the play area or take a dip in the covered pool, renovated in 2017, with their parents. In the summer there are plenty of activities for the whole family.

Fresh rolls and croissants

The camping shop has the daily necessities, such as fresh rolls and croissants The restaurant (with bar and terrace) serves pizzas and has a small menu.

Nor a nice experience booked a privilege pitch with own sanitary facilities the pitch was just mud and uneven as we pulled in to the pitch we were told to avoid a failed drain cover as it was loose, we booked in for a week the second day there were builders right by us working with drills, grinders etc, that was enough we left the second day, they won’t give a refund on your credit card they will only do it through your bank, as yet a month later still no refund.
I cannot recommend this site sorry.

We enjoy returning to this site. The staff are friendly and helpful, the site is well laid out and quiet. An easy walk to the town for Wednesday or Saturday market days. A large supermarket is a couple of kilometres away together with fuel. Well worth a stay even if only for a few days.

This was our third visit and it won\'t be our last! A beautiful site with everything you could wish for (almost) No shop to speak of but a supermarket just up the road, the restaurant and Pizza place was closed on our visit but it was Mid June so early season, not surprising in France ! The sanitary facilities including the swimming pools are spotless and all staff are very helpful. The site is a pleasant walk into town and it is generally very pleasant. I cannot think of anything negative to say. We will definitely return

Loche is a beautiful medieval town with lots to see and do. The campsite is well situated just a 10 minute walk from the town centre and facilities were great. Stopped for one night but ended up staying a week.
Highly recommended.

This is a lovely campsite in an excellent location. It\'s and easy walk into Loches with its many interesting sites. There\'s also a lovely walk through parkland dotted with sculptures to Beaulieu les Loches. Our pitch was very large and set back from the roadway. Water points are not so plentiful and the sanitary facilities could be better. Only two male and two female toilets in our block and no hand washing facilities without going round the other side to the shower area. The swimming pools are excellent and we made good use of them.

This site is in the perfect spot - lovely walk into the town - motorhomers traveling with dogs the vets is walking distance and the receptionist was very helpful and made the appointment for us. Huge l\'ecleric with easy parking for motorhomes just up the road - we called in on way back out to motorway - easy road on leaving the motorway. They do not give you free wifi if you are using ACSI card - the first time we have experienced this - give with one hand take with the other. Also it is a shame they do not think it worthy to open the snack bar when the site is two thirds full !!! The fully serviced pitches were a lovely size with plenty of shade - we were close to the pool and they do not switch the waterfall off overnight so if you are sleeping with windows open you can hear it all night!!

The restaurant and bar were closed whilst we were there in May. With a ten minute walk into town it did not matter. the staff were very helpful and the site was perfectly clean and tidy. All the toilets and washing facilitates were cleaned regularly.

Very clean, very well organised site with excellent staff. Pleasant walk into the city which is well worth a visit. If coming up from the south to avoid the city centre follow the main road round until you reach the roundabout with the big super market on it. There is a campsite sign on the roundabout.

Location very good next to river and short walk to interesting town. Site quiet, preparing for end of season. Cafe closed but plenty in town. Mostly pensioners stopping for a few nights on way south. Pitches good and level, with balance of open/shade. Sanitations clean and satisfactory (supply your own paper). Fantastic heated indoor pool. Would recommend.
