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.

Lovely site in a great location

Lovely site with a very relaxing atmosphere. Immaculate toilets maintained to a very high standard. Appearance suggests these are brand new and have been clearly been well thought out. Plenty going on including bar, restaurant and takeaway as well as site shop. Good swimming pool with plenty of sun loungers but no parasols. We had a bad location for our pitch probably because we were only staying for a couple of nights, and were located next to the Motorhome emptying point, so we got the odd whiff of the drains. However that does not detract from the overall site layout and facilities. Great area for cycling and the wonderful Châteaux Cheverny less than a mile from the site. This will definitely be on our list to stay again and definitely for longer next time. Highly recommend. An excellent site.

Good site however

Their are 2 shower blocks which were immaculate however the newer block was open to the elements which during our stay was freezing. Told the restaurant was going to be open but it was only a takeaway menu which you could eat in there bar area. Nice swimming pool, the staff speak excellent English and are very friendly. Site is in a good location although you may have to travel some distances for some attractions.

A Family Friendly Site.

We enjoyed a lovely week the ambience of the site was all that one could wish for, everyone spoke to each other either to chat or just to pass the time of day, The staff were visible on site all day and created a very friendly atmosphere I only wish we had booked for the two weeks we were in the Loire instead of moving to another site further along the valley, the second site was ok but it was Company run and lacked the same atmosphere, it was as different as chaulk and cheese. We would like to visit again if France will allow us in after Brexit!!

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!!
