Why stay here ...
An English-run, touring only site on the banks of the River Cher, Le Moulin Fort is a relaxing place to stay with an emphasis on wellbeing. It’s suited to couples and families with older children looking for a peaceful stay, and many visitors return time and again due to its excellent location, friendly atmosphere and hard-working staff.
The level pitches are of a good size and shaded by trees and shrubs, while facilities are well kept and include a bar and restaurant, pool and mini-golf. Twin-axle caravans and large motorhomes will find access to the pitches straightforward.
The site is a short walk from the Château de Chenonceau, once owned by Catherine de Medici and famous for its fairy tale design. The area is excellent for walking, cycling and kayaking, and you can also take a hot air balloon trip from Amboise or a boat trip from opposite the site and float under the Chenonceau arches.

Stayed here for 5 nights first part of September-2 adults no children. Campsite easy to find and lovely riverside setting. We were lucky with a riverside pitch which appeared larger than other pitches elsewhere. Pitches are not clearly delineated and some are not so easy to access. Facilities were basic but adequate. They could do with updating but were kept nice and clean. Campsite only has 6 amp electricity and we were aware of others tripping their supply. There was the occasional train noise but it did not bother us. We didn't use the restaurant so can't comment on it. Staff friendly and helpful Campsite is ideally placed for visiting Chenoneaux and the Chateau as it is less than half an hours easy walk to access both. Other places we visited from there were Amboise and Chambord (slightly further away but well worth a visit). We enjoyed our stay here and all in all a good site as a base for visiting the area.
Response from the Site:
Many thanks for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your time at the site. We are not allowed to delineate the pitches due to the restrictions put on us by the local community in regards to flooding - as we are very lucky to be directly on the river if it floods we can have nothing that can collect the debris from the flood water -if there is a serious problem with electricity please speak to us at reception and we can try and help.
