Thanks to its location in the heart of the Loire Valley in a beautiful 6 ha forest, Camping La Grande Tortue is the perfect base for trips to the most famous castles of the Loire (Chaumont-sur-Loire, Chambord and Chenonceau). With 169 pitches, including various types of rental accommodation, the camping site has something to offer for everyone. You also have a wide choice of activities and facilities for a lovely holiday.
Special pitches for cyclists and walkers
The restaurant, swimming pool and playground form the pulsating heart of the camping site. This is surrounded by the pitches and the rental accommodation. The pitches are partly located in the shade, but in the centre some of the pitches have to make do without shade. There are special pitches for cyclists and walkers.
Comfort, Grand Comfort and Comfort Premium
The camping site offers pitches in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Guests bringing their own tent can choose between three levels, the standard pitch being at Comfort level, while you have water supply and drainage facilities at Grand Comfort level and Comfort Premium comes with own sanitary facilities. There is a wide choice of rental accommodation: mobile homes, caravans, huts on stilts and so-called Coco Sweet tents.
Restaurant and shop
The camping site has a restaurant where you can have a leisurely meal or enjoy a drink or an ice cream on the terrace. The restaurant also offers breakfast, half board (only in low season) and take-away dishes (including pizzas). The shop stocks local products and daily fresh bread.

Ideally situated for numerous cycle tracks - la loire la velo - and close to the historic and delightful town of Blois. However, I expected more from a five-star site and this one did not live up to expectations. The Toilet and sanitary facilities were very old and tired - and cold. The pitches for touring caravans and motorhomes were large and flat but some backed on to houses which had annoying barking dogs. This site has a large number of mobile homes/chalets and caters well for families with numerous play areas including indoor and outdoor pools. On-site restaurant offers an extensive menu at reasonable prices - again geared towards families.
A very attractive site situated on the edge of a forest. beware the pitches under the edge of the forest, but, in low season plenty of choice. Local village within walking distance, some shops further on up the hill with a medium sized supermarket a short drive away. Friendly staff happy to help.
An excellent site. Very helpful lady on reception. A great pool and clean facilities. Close to many chateau. Excellent cycling. Gourmet restaurants in village and Blois is lovely for nearest big towm.
Stayed 8 nights in a caravan. Superb site well placed in the Loire valley for visiting chateaus, towns and markets. Good cycling from the site. Staff very helpful nothing seemed to be too much. Great pool although can get busy. Facilities always clean. Ate in the restaurant freshly cooked, good service and good value. Would not hesitate to recommend or return to this site
Very pleasant site with welcoming staff. A good shop on site sells most essential provisions, and takes orders for bread for the next morning. Our pitch was a very good size, although water and waste facilities were a distance away. Would definitely stay again.
An excellent site probably one of the best Kawan sites we have visited. Superb pool (well heated). Found staff very helpfull in every way. Certainly a site we will return to.
