Why stay here ...

An attractive and peaceful site, Chanteloup is located close to Le Mans, making it ideal for quiet stays, stopovers and motor racing enthusiasts. Set in the park of a 19th century château, it offers a friendly atmosphere to relax and the well-maintained facilities include a pool, bar and restaurant. It has open and shaded pitches, some of which overlook a small fishing lake. Tours of the grounds by pony and trap can also be arranged. 

Le Mans and its famous race track are less than 30 minutes’ drive from the site. Its quiet old town is perched above the bustling modern town and has some beautiful cobbled streets lined by timbered buildings. Each summer, the old town is illuminated by an impressive free light show called “La Nuit des Chimieres”.

July '19 - Great site

Holidayed for a week at Chanteloup in July 2019 with a caravan. Initially we were allocated a pitch that was a bit far away from all the amenities but after a friendly discussion we were reallocated a pitch that was a bit more central. The pitches are grass and not particularly clearly defined but nonetheless we found it good and easy to get pitched onto. Other pitches looked similarly sized with all appearing to have reasonable access for large outfits. The weather was good which always helps, some may suggest it was too hot as we hit the peak temperatures in France at that time which peaked over 40C. The bar area was good with good service and a seating area both inside and outside, the outside area had a large TV screen. The restaurant and take away food had a decent menu and service again was good. The toilet / shower areas were clean and all had hot water at all times. The site had a market and a BBQ on two of the days we were there. The market was limited but all sellers had good products (no cheap rubbish).The BBQ had free wine and the BBQ was provided by the site, just bring your own food. It was around 10 miles to Le Mans which has some historical areas worthy of a visit and the light show onto the buildings around the old quarter of the city is worth staying around for until dusk. A visit to Le mans would not have been complete without a visit to the race track / museum. We only visited the museum (adjacent to the race track) which was a good two hours spent with many cars on exhibit. There were many large supermarkets to choose from in Le Mans, just take your pick really... We also golfed one day and whilst it was not a championship course, it was an interesting and enjoyable round at a reasonable price. All in, a very enjoyable stay and a site we would highly recommend.

One of the best Castels sites

A return visit to this first class site. Everything about site is high quality. Pitches are arranged around the edges leaving central areas clear to enjoy. The owners are hands on and can be seen watering lovely plants from morning till night. Lovely terrace bar great garden swimming pool. Restaurant and shop. Nice toilets. If in Motor home ask for directions to Quayside free parking in Le Mans. Rural location but supermarkets in Le Mans. Bbq on Sat nights July August.

A top notch site

Can’t remember how many times we’ve stayed here, but we love it. We use it as a stopover on our way to the Dordogne. To be honest we could travel to our next stopover easily, but stay because we love the site so much. You pitch like a wagon trail when the Red Indians are on the war path, but this means you have neighbours at either side of you but no one in front or behind. There must be 30- 40 metres between you and the pitch opposite. Add to this spaciousness, excellent, clean facilities, lots for children to do, a very good on site restaurant, a lovely terrace to sit enjoying a drink from the chateau bar, friendly, welcoming staff and of course views of the chateau and you have a perfect site. We were sad to leave after just one night and we will stay for longer in the future as it is such a relaxing place.

Possibly the best site in the whole region!

Stayed just the one night enroute further south. Been here several times and always sad to leave. Greeted by the proprietor with a warm handshake, we are made to feel really welcome even if it’s a short stay. Grounds are beautiful and there is an excellent pool and children’s play area. Good restaurant and take away facility. Fresh bread and croissants delivered by a local baker. Very relaxing and a taste of the very best France has to offer.

A great site, great welcome, fantastic facilities and beautifully peaceful

We were pitched on the large area in front of the chateau building. The pitches are around the edge so the large open area in the middle gives a feeling of lots of space. The welcome and provided information was excellent. The facilities are clean and modern and plentiful. The onsite bar and restaurant and take away are reasonably priced and provide a decent range on the menu. Bread and croissants were available to buy without order each morning. The staff were polite and engaging. The lake and the grounds and woodland provided some nice area to explore and walk / cycle. The pool and surrounding lawned area was nicely kept and safe There are Loire villages driving routes a bit further afield; other than the city of Le Mans and its interesting old town and medieval feel you are a distance from other places for visits of interest so that might be a down side. It was a nice three night stopover on the way further South and on the basis of the experience of those 3 nights I will certainly book again and for longer. Relaxing, friendly and modern. There are a number of supermarkets and petrol stations between Le Mans and the site and Le Mans was easy to access by car and with plentiful parking.
