Why stay here ...

This friendly site in the heart of the Loire Valley is ideal for nature lovers thanks to its environmentally-conscious owners and abundant wildlife. Over 50 species of birds can be spotted on the nature and fitness trail, and guests can also learn about the bees kept in the hives onsite.

The facilities are of a high standard and include a pleasant pool complex (with accessible lift) and a restaurant serving traditional food. There’s also a kids’ club to entertain younger children in high season.

Les Saules’ location makes it perfect for visits to all the most popular châteaux of the region including Chaumont, Amboise and Cheverny, which is a leisurely walk or cycle away. There’s also a zoo nearby, and Blois, with its castle and Museum of Magic, makes for a good day out.

Really nice site

Enjoyed a 3 night break en route to our main holiday in Northern Spain. This is a really nice site with good facilities including a small semi indoor pool, very clean toilets and showers , restaurant and small shop. Pitches are of a good size with plenty of shade on sandy/ soil. Nice play area adjacent to pitches and a unique nature. fitness trail. Site is situated within 10 mins of motorway and very close to a large chateau. This site is quite small and had a nice relaxing feel about it.

Well cared for site

We stayed at Les Saules for a one night stop over in mid-June on route further to the south east during our French odyssey and found it to be nicely presented. The warmth of the welcome and helpfulness of staff was very good - as were the provision of facilities - extremely clean. The pitching was of free choice to the caravaner and was of approximately 10m x 12m which was shaded by tall silver birch trees which allowed dappled sunlight through. The grass had been clipped very short which rendered it slightly muddy after some heavy rain in the preceding weeks. The only downside for us was the length of the walk to dispose of grey water (to the block at the back edge of the site) and having to take one's own loo paper along when those facilities were needed! Pool; bar and restaurant were all very good, and there is a large supermarket (some 3 miles away) which supplements the limited provisions available from the site shop. We would agree with a previous reviewer who said that this site deserves more time being spent there. We may well do that when we return!!

A beautiful site in a lovely area

A lovely site with very friendly and helpful staff - the management are very hands-on, friendly and keen to ensure that you have the best possible stay. Lovely pool, spotless facilities, great restaurant and bar with excellent food. The wildlife on site is truly amazing, I was hand feeding birds from our pitch and a tally had a great tit land on my knee!! There are some great chateaux to visit in the area. Just one little word of caution, if you are following Caravan Club directions, the road layout in Coeur Cheverny has been changed so the route is slightly different - there is now a roundabout where the directions indicate traffic lights.A lovely site highly recommended and well worth a visit.

Pleasant Site

Unfortunately we were only able to stay one night. The pitches are quite close together and some are back to back, which for us was not a problem, but if you have children could be. The facilities let the site down they are in need of upgrading. The pitches can be strewn with leaves and whilst we were there very dry and dusty this had been caused by the extreme heat that the area had experienced recently. The restaurant and bar are small but adequate although a little limited on what was on offer. Swimming pool was excellent. The site also offers transport links to the local Chateau (Must Visit) and towns along with Car and Bicycle hire. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit this site but if I was travelling in the area I wouldn't hesitate to use it again and probably this time stay a bit longer to really get a feel for what I think could be an excellent site.

A Gem

Beautiful site, close the town of Blois and the delights of the Loire Valley.  The gorgeous Chateau de Cheverny is a very pleasant, off road, walk (or cycle) away.  The site is well laid out in woodland with shaded pitches, the pool is great and the staff very helpful.  Only moan is that there may be a bit of a voltage issue with the electrics, our fridge and those of others nearby, was showing a supply fault and regularly defaulted to gas.  Would definitely visit again.
