Huttopia Saumur campsite is located in the middle of a wooded nature reserve in the Loire Valley, just above the town of Saumur. With vineyards, castles and picturesque villages nearby, there is plenty to see in the area. The campsite is located directly on a higher part of the banks of the Loire and offers a wonderful view of the river and the valley. The campsite has reserved its best spots on the riverside.

Panorama over the Loire

The showpiece of the campsite is the panoramic view. The campsite is situated on an elevated part of the site, giving you a wonderful view of the Loire from various pitches and rental accommodation. The pitches are located on the right-hand side of the campsite and are separated by hedges. Trees provide shade on these pitches.

Three swimming pools

In high season, the Huttopia Saumur campsite is particularly popular with young families with children. Small campers will mainly be found around the reception. This is where the swimming pools are located. They are not particularly large, but there are three in total: an outdoor pool, an indoor pool and a paddling pool. This means there is enough space for everyone.

Terrace with view

The restaurant is also located near the reception building and the swimming pools. The menu here is small - mainly fresh pizza is served - but the atmosphere is nice. The terrace is a lovely place to sit. Here too, the view over the valley is magnificent. Next to the terrace is the playground, where the children can let off steam while you enjoy a glass of wine.

Travelling party: Seniors

this site was very untidy, grass was growing through picnic tables, grass on Special priced pitch for the view of the loire, grass not cut hedges not cut as this was a special rate we thought it over priced also when arriving at 1150 to check in we where told be quick i shut at 1200 but got booked in paid the said fee only to find bar and food not open why didn\'t the receptionist tell us this before we booked in so i think these sites should STATE before booking what is open (they only seem to want the fee)
i have left a review on there page with a response well it has been wet ,surely this is not the answer would not use this site again

Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

Around 2016, Camping du Chantepie was purchased by Huttopia and rebranded as Huttopia Saumur. In 2017 we noticed a number of changes to the site, some for the better, some not so. The trampolines had been replaced by a car park, the pond had been filled in, and we saw no sign of the donkeys, pigs and chickens that the kids used to find so appealing. Reception had also been moved to the building that used to be the shop, and the original building looked a little deserted, which was a shame as it used to look so attractive. The worst change was that 3 large chalets had been placed on the picnic area/viewpoint overlooking the Loire. These spoiled the view from the original river view pitches, but more importantly it dissuaded campers from congregating there in the evening. This viewpoint was one of the nicest features of the site, and it is now sadly all but lost.

On the plus side, the sanitary blocks have been refurbished. The family rooms upstairs were closed off, but the rest were open when we visited late in the season. All facilities are unisex, and paper and soap are provided.

Another improvement is the addition of a play area and picnic benches near the bar/restaurant.

Travelling party: Family with children <4 years

Out of main season but pool and bar open as described. Superb toilet facilities all renovated since our last visit 5 years ago when this was called Chantepie and run as part of a project for learning disabled. Now Huttopia and efforts by staff seemed half hearted and appearance of their "Hutts" gives a rather army camp ambience. Only site this holiday where we paid " up front" and despite site being largely empty, ACSI pitches restricted to a few in number and marked on map. Site is In a lovely location handy for walking and cycling along the Loire, visiting Chinon and Saumur. Would return. If only for their pain au raisin. Best of the holiday.
