Le Moulin Fort 2018

We stayed here for 2 weeks in 2017 and this visit was for 5 nights on our return North after being in the Dordogne. The site is peaceful, pitches of a good size although the small bushes, hedges and trees don't necessarily demarcate the spaces as clearly as the could be. The staff are courteous and helpful right from early bread collection service right through to evening dinner and bar service. There are themed food and entertainment nights as well as some visiting entertainment. The small shaded pool is well used and the sunbeds and chairs often in full use. The shower and toilet blocks look a little dated and there were signs that planned upgrade works had not been completed due to bad weather over the winter. Certainly some sprucing up and painting would be beneficial. The small shop has all the basic essentials to get you by and there is a good Super U towards Montrichard (15 minutes) or a good range of supermarkets in Blere (10 minutes). The riverside position is wonderful and the riverside can be accessed by steps at the far end of the site although the pitches along the river do seem to give the impression of it not being accessible for everyone. There are great cycle paths and footpaths easily accessible on both sides of the river and the distances you can go are great. The surrounding area has some of the most wonderful royal chateau from just 3 km up the road to Blois which is a bit further afield. The wifi (5 euro for 5 days) only works on the patio in front of the bar and it would be better if it were extended site wide. It worked fairly well although it would be better if it were accessible from your pitch and I imagine most people would pay a little more for that. I would always come back here for its friendly and peaceful feeling. The owners need to keep on top of their maintenance projects to ensure that the feel of the place is not let down by degrading facilities. It is to be noted that the nearby bridge over the River Cher is being widened over the Autumn and Winter and this may impact on access in the early part of the 2019 season.
