Why stay here ...

Located close to many of the Loire’s attractions, this large, vibrant site caters well for families who want an active stay in the area. The owners have ensured that all ages are provided for, with baby playrooms, kids’ clubs, sports, and classes for adults. Evening entertainment also runs throughout high season.

Set in wooded parkland, many pitches are shaded by tall trees. Facilities are modern and the restaurant, bar and takeaway are open all season.

The site sits between Amboise and Chambord, and is well-placed for visits to both châteaux, as well as Chaumont and Clos Lucé, once home to Leonardo Da Vinci. Children will enjoy a trip to Beauval Zoo, while a day in Blois brings interesting museums and meandering streets lined with historic buildings.

5 days in the sun

We stayed here for 5 days this summer. We are a family of four with kids aged 8 and 10. The reception staff were excellent and very efficient. Overall we liked the site but we did get fed up with the wasps. There were millions of them and almost every pitch had a home-made wasp trap (plastic bottle, cut in half with the top inverted and pushed into the bottom with some fizzy drink poured in the bottom). Fly screens on the windows were a must but we found that we couldn't eat outside (including at the restaurant) without being bothered by wasps. My wife and 8 year old both got stung which led to lots of stress whenever a wasp came near. The pool area was excellent. The kids could touch the bottom of the pool everywhere and use the slides on their own. They also loved the trampoline area and the play parks. The evening entertainment was good although the prices at the restaurant, bar and takeaway were quite high. The on-site bakery was excellent; the croissants were to die for! The shop was good and there is a large supermarket nearby. We found that mobile reception was not very good here and the wifi seemed quite expensive. However, travelling a short distance outside of the site allowed me to get a 4G connection. Nearby Amboise was an excellent day out and well worth a look. We somehow found ourselves on one of the smallest pitches on the park with our 8m TA caravan. I would strongly recommend getting a pitch with water and waste (anything but the base-level pitch) but I don't know if this can be done when booking through the club. There were a lot of families on the site and lots of crying babies (perhaps due to the heat?). Whilst the site had good facilities, we didn't find it very relaxing. I would recommend the site though. Just be prepared for the wasps!

Super family site

Stayed here as a family unit for four days on our return from the south of France. Probably the best reception welcome we received whilst traveling France. The company certainly train there staff well. The site is very large and very family oriented, swimming pools and slides lots of activities to keep everyone happy. Bars and restaurant quite expensive but they have a captive audience. Entertainment in the evening usually finished by 11.30 ish. The pitches and a mixture of statics and camping/caravan. There are five types of pitch to choose from, advice is go for the largest one, all with water and drainage some with seating and BBQ, pitches mixture of grass and dust, take another ground sheet with you. Electric hook up point can be a distance from pitch, take spare lead extension. Site has three shower, toilet, dish washing area blocks, in our option block three is not up to standard and should be updated, showers in this block are out dated, they have some sort of hose attachment as the shower head, really poor standard, and the water switches it self off after about 10 seconds, advice is use another block, also try and pitch away from block three as the pitches opposite face directly onto the block not very nice seeing people in and out of the cubicles all day. Plenty to do and see in the area, a visit to Chateau du Chambord is a must, as is the choclate shop factory not too far away. Ok for a few days but wouldn't want to stay too long, go further south for the sun, weather in this area can be hit and miss, however would recommend and would visit again.

our stay in june 2017

Site ok but not for us, the staff are friendly and helpful ,I felt we had dropped into butlins great for family's, the trouble is that there is holiday homes each side of the site and caravans in the middle instead of all caravans together, the nose never given up with children running all over the place also music from the pool area was to nosey could hear it all over the site and went on till 11.00 pm one night, if you like that type of thing it would be fine, but I thing its for family's, that's why its call YOLL,HO not good if you need peace and some quietness, we will not return.

Family orientated.

The site is very well organised and run. If you don't like noise and activity choose out of season! It is still ideal for the area which it serves and our first visit in many years was very enjoyable. Pitches are hard used in main season but heat and lack of rain don't help! Some pitches are quite small as Yelloh seek to maximise their investment. Worth booking early and looking at plan to get a good sized location.

Great site in the heart of the Loire Valley

This site was brilliant for our needs though it may not suit everybody in high season. We have 3 children, all at primary school, and we loved the two swimming pools, entertainment, restaurant, the various classes and the location. Some may find it a little noisy in high season as the entertainment goes on until 22:30. Families with very young children may find it difficult to get them to sleep, unless pitched at the opposite side of the site from the bar. The pitches are of a generous size and part shaded. The shower blocks are immaculate and generally, the site is very well managed. It is lost amidst a cluster of quiet country lanes and there are a number of interesting towns and chateau in the area. We would certainly return if in this part of the Loire again.
