Why stay here ...
Camping Le Cormier, owned by Mike and Cath Smith is set within a boundary of trees making it a wonderfully peacefull and tranquil setting. Positioned on the outskirts of a small village on the northern tip of the Parc Naturel Regional de la Brenne - also known as the 'Land of a Thousand Lakes', the site is surrounded by rolling countryside, making it also a natural heaven for various species of birds and general wildlife.
Onsite a connection to Astra 2 satelite TV is available and the Wi-Fi covers the whole campsite free of charge and the majority of pitches have trees and bushes providing shade for those warm sunny days.
There are some wonderful walks on communal paths and quiet roads, making it an excellent area for cycling too. The locality has a range of activities including magnificent chateaux, zoos, parks, museums, restaurants, historic medieval towns and the attaction park Futuroscope.
The site is ideally positioned in the centre of France for a peaceful holiday break, or as a stop-off point when heading to the south of France, Spain or Portugal with motorway junctions for the A10 motorway to the west (direction Bordeaux) and the A20 to the east (direction Toulouse).
