Relaxed camping

On the slightly hilly terrain the camping pitches are closer to the amenities than the rental accommodation units. The terrain is laid out with numerous trees and bushes and has a varied appearance. The pitches differ in size and comfort but are all spacious. The luxury pitches have electricity and water supply plus drainage. A number of pitches is dedicated to campers. Rental accommodation consists of furnished tents, mobile homes and chalets.

Wellness in old mobile home

The owner has converted an old mobile home into a relaxation and wellness area with a Turkish bath, balnéo, an infrared sauna and some fitness equipment including two bicycles. There is a heated indoor pool, with toddler pool, and outdoor pool with nice slide and jacuzzi.

Camping site owner and chef

The owner is also the chef and the restaurant offers a small menu with pizzas, meat dishes and the Arada menu. The terrace of the restaurant, with a view of the swimming pool, is a lovely place to relax in the sun or the shade. You can buy various groceries and beverages in the reception area. There is adequate choice for a reasonable price.

Not to be missed

From the camping site you can take a large number of walking and cycling trips in the area and you can rent bicycles from the reception. Wine tasting options are also offered on the various vineyards. You can also visit one of the many castles on the Loire or the regional nature park with wildlife.

Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

Liked - Friendly family run park with pool, small shop and bar/cafe. Caravan was very clean and well equipped. Pool had plenty of loungers and plenty of shaded seating. Kids had an excellent time.
Disliked - Small caravan and pitch, although very modern and clean.
We had 5 people in a 6 person caravan and it was very cramped inside if the weather was detrimental. Luckily we had great weather and we were outside the whole time.
Only one sun lounger for a 6 berth caravan and pitch probably too small to have more.
I also found the price to be on the higher end of the scale, however the facilities were new/well kept.

Travelling party: Couple

We have visited this site twice now and it remains one of our favourites. The grounds are well kept and pitches are a good size with hedges for privacy. Shower blocks are clean and water is always hot. The pool is spotlessly clean with slides for kids. There is also an indoor pool. The area is beautiful. If you ask the receptionist she will supply you with walks around the area. There is a small shop in the village for general day to day items. Easy to get to Tours. Thoroughly recommend this gem of a site.

Travelling party: Group of friends

Liked - Great place for seeing the Loire or Le Mans, and very well located for travel from Channel ports and onto places like Bordeaux, Dordogne and Spain. Its actually far better than an overnight stay place as it has great facilities like a good pool and water slide that many will appreciate. So stay a while or get there in the afternoon to optimise the best of the stopover. The restaurant will also provide good simple food fit for a refreshing beer or a jug of local wine!
