Only 5 km from the city of Tours, in the village La Ville-aux-Dames, lies the small camping site Les Acacias. This region, the Loire Valley, is very popular with tourists. This can be attributed to the number of castles and vineyards. The nearby lovely city of Tours also attracts many visitors. The campsite is open all year round, but from 15 September to 31 March the reception is open irregularly. It is therefore necessary to make a reservation for this period. It is mainly a transit camping site, where you can, of course, also spend a few days longer to explore the area.
In the shaded reception you will be warmly welcomed by the owners or receptionist. Ahead of you, you see a rather open site with only some shade along the perimeter (depending on the time of the day). Here you will also find the permanent accommodation: some twenty holiday homes and mobile homes suitable for 2-6 persons. Overnight guests with their own tent, caravan or camper van may select their own pitch on the central grounds, often partly demarcated.
Restaurant with nice terrace
The restaurant of the camping site, Au Jardin des Dames, has a pleasant terrace which becomes the hub of the camping site in the evenings. The menu is limited, but the quality of the food on offer is extremely good. At the reception you can buy basic necessities, but it is only a 300 m walk to a large shopping centre with a supermarket.
Directly from the camping site you can venture on cycling trips through the Loire Valley or go to the city of Tours. Across from the D751 (be careful when crossing the road) you can can go on great walks along forests on the banks of the Loire.

Liked - Location
Liked - This is a great location for stopping off on our way down to Lacanau. We did the route 2 years ago and stayed at this same campsite then. It is well positioned for visiting Tours. The pitch is well maintained and has electric and water
Disliked - The toilet blocks didn’t have soap in them for our 2 nights we were there.
We had a meal on our first night at the campsite restaurant. We ate there when we came 2 years ago and were looking forward to it again but was very disappointed. The prices were expensive with what we got. I had a very small version of a chicken cottage pie and then half a plate of lettuce and the price was €14. The kids had an even smaller portion and also half a plate of lettuce (not the chips as advertised). We ended up having to cook again at the caravan as were so hungry.
The inflatable was also not up
Liked - We were travelling to the south of France and it was an ideal stopover easy to get to
A good value site
Well placed just far enough from Tours
Excellent showers goodies loos
Will probably go again next year
Liked - Proximity to Tours.
Disliked - Very noisy site due to busy road into Tours
The campsite is on the edge of a residential area of well kept housing. It is well maintained with generous individual pitches delineated by shrubs. The toilet block is kept clean, there is plenty of hot water, toilet paper and hand washing facilities. As mentioned in previous reviews there is some traffic noise but we were able to choose a pitch away from the road and didn’t find the noise intrusive. There was no noise at night from activities on the site and we stayed longer than planned in order to see the local sites.
The site is very convenient for the chateaux and it is easy to drive into Tours. There is a country park across the road, by the river, for walks and jogging. Nearby is a large Le Clerc.
The lady in reception speaks good English and is very helpful and knowledgable about the locality.
Good, clean, convenient site. We\'ve stayed over for a night each time we\'ve travelled down to southern Europe and never had any problems
Liked - Easy to get onto pitches.
