Camping site Le Parc de Vaux is located on the la Varenne river, near the village of Ambrières-les-Vallées. The camping grounds are in an idyllic setting under tall trees on the riverbank. On the water you will see canoes, kayaks and pedalos while the area along the green banks is popular with walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The camping pitches on this traditional camping site are separated from each other by hedges.

Camping by the river

The camping site is spaciously laid out in a park-like setting on the sloping river bank. You camp along paved pathways on grass and mostly under trees. You can opt for a pitch directly by the river. The camping pitches are separated from each other by hedges. The terrain is hilly, so that most pitches are not level. There are some attractive rental bungalows available on a separate section of the camping site. You can also hire motorhomes and a few tents there. 

Recreational park

The camping site forms part of a recreational park. Directly next to the camping site is a heated outdoor swimming pool with toddler pool and water slide. Camping guests may make free use of this. There is also a playground. You can play a game of tennis or a round of mini golf for a fee. You can rent pedalos, canoes and kayaks near the jetty. There is also a canoe club where you can learn canoeing and kayaking.

Modest facilities

The camping site is suitable for guests who are often out and about to explore the area. The facilities on this camping site are very standard and the sanitary facilities are fairly modest. There are a few additional amenities only during the peak season, in July and August. The bar and restaurant are also open during that time.

Liked - Spacious pitches immediately beside the river with a generally quiet and relaxed feel to the site. Good pool, mini golf and tennis courts kept the children entertained. Easy access to the river for kayaks and paddle boarding.
Disliked - Shower/toilet blocks were a bit cramped for the size of the site. A few pitches have quite a gradient.

Liked - lovely setting next to the river. can be very quiet. for a short stay, it’s worth it for the low cost. receptionist very helpful, when there.
Disliked - only one male and one female toilet available, unheated. not enough hot water in showers. Sunday afternoon snooze broken by noise from unecessary work with a petrol leaf blower. most pitches a little sloping, we found a flat one. wifi very local and weak.

The site is in a lovely location with friendly reception staff, La Varenne runs along side offering riverside walks. Sadly the site is let down by its antiquated toilet/shower blocks which are in serious need of renovation. If you want a peaceful stay try to avoid the weekend as the French families love to have a loud natter with their barbecues.
