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 camping site is opened throughout the year. 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.

We only had an overnight stay here but it was lovely. The gentleman on reception was very friendly and helpful. The showers were lovely and very clean. We would definitely stay again.
There was a friendly welcome here and the site was generally ok. There is a large supermarket close. The free Wifi worked ok. The road at the top of the site was blocked off (fun getting in!) so the site was very quiet other than the owls! The facilities need updating and some deep cleaning. We'd use it again as a stopover but I don't think we would stay.
Good generous sized pitches.
Although site is described as being quiet, we found the road that runs along one side is noisy. There is also a train line along the opposite side, military planes fly overhead, so no not quiet.
Arrived at 2pm when the office opened and were given a choice of pitches. We requested a sunny pitch as far away from the road as possible, based on reviews on this site, and the helpful lady recommended the perfect spot. Facilities seemed clean and more than adequate, grounds were well kept and position of the site good for visiting Tours and local wine producers. Only one small downside that we discovered - we didn't notice that we had parked under an oak tree and the acorns falling on our roof sounded like bullets! Entirely our fault and easily avoided.
Good free wifi 'at the bar', plenty of hot water in showers, open all year and a massive L'Eclerc in a kilometre walk. Apart from that not much else to say, staff friendly and helpful but typically of most French sites any claim to have bars and restaurants available in September should be taken with a pinch of salt. Can't see any other reason to stay here except as a stopover. You may find the permanent chalets occupied by groups of workers a little off putting but it didn't give us a problem.
This was our 2nd visit to the site in the last 6 months and it was just as good this time as the last. On our last visit we were near the road and found it a little, but not excessively noisey, so we asked for pitch further away and were immediately offered one as far from the road as possible, on hard standing which was large, flat and close, but not too close to the shower block and water supply.
Over the two week stay we encountered no problems and the staff were freindly and helpful. The showers were spacious and hot, if the walls in the cubicals were a little grubby - pity as the toilets and floor are scrupiously cleaned daily!
Excellent site, we will be returning and can highly reccommend it.
Good stopover site. Don't let the staff put you under the trees next to the main road as it is quite noisy and the trees bomb your roof with bits of branches and acorns (in autumn). Free wifi, toilet floors clean but walls etc not. Dated toilet block. Showers good.
We thank you for your comment.
In order to improve our quality of service, we take into consideration each of your remarks. Thus, we pay special attention to the cleanliness of our premises by cleaning several times a day. A full facelift is performed annually in the early season and there is music in the heated toilet blocks for your comfort. We would be pleased to welcome you again at “Les acacias” and feel free to ask for a pitch unshaded far away from the road .
Very nice site, very warm and friendly welcome, toilets were clean and presentable. good road access, large supermarket within walking distance also with fuel. Free wifi. recommended site for overnight or short stay.
We thank you for this kind comment and would be pleased to welcome you again at "Les acacias'
We enjoyed our stay at Les Acacias even though it was raining for part of our stay. The staff were very friendly and helped me with trying to speak French. We had a grass pitch under trees, which got to be a bit of a pain during the wet periods. The toilet block is dated, but was very clean. Take your own paper! I wasn't too pleased with the water connection as it was one of the push-for-water types and there weren't a lot of them. It took me ages to fill the Aquaroll and I couldn't use my permanently plumbed in kit. There is no bar or restaurant close by - well there is but it seems to be permanently closed. There are good road connections and a large E. LeClerk close by.
We enjoyed our stay, despite the rain and will definitely visit again.
In order to improve our quality of service, we take into consideration each of your remarks. For information, a platform where you can fill campers with fresh water is located directly behind the bar. Anyway, we thank you for this kind comment and would be pleased to welcome you again at "Les acacias'.
Very handy site for Tours and Amboise. Good cycle tracks along the Loire. Bus route very close. Large supermarket also very close. Campsite Bar not open and restaurant next to campsite closed all weekend despite sign saying open tous les jours! This was poor as there was nothing else available within walking distance particularly on Sundays. Toilets/showers ok but seemed a bit run down although cleaned regularly. Stayed in March for 1 night on our way to Spain and 5 nights in June. Would stay again.
In order to improve our quality of service, we take into consideration each of your remarks. Please note that our food & beverage activity mainly depends on the attendance of the campsite. Thus, in high season, our team will be pleased to welcome you at the bar or at the restaurant even on Sundays. In addition, all year round, a grocery shop is available at the reception. On top of that, we pay special attention to the cleanliness of our premises by cleaning several times a day. A full facelift is performed annually in the early season and there is music in the heated toilet blocks for your comfort. Anyway, we would be pleased to welcome you again at “Les acacias” and feel free to ask for a pitch far away from the road. We thank you for your comment.
