Why stay here ...

Nestled in the heart of the Angers wine-growing region, this small, countryside site is ideally located for an active yet relaxing holiday. You'll receive a cheery welcome upon arrival and find pitches large and sunny with good access.

Take the  bus into Angers or Doue de la Fontaine from the bus stop only 20 mins walk from the campsite, ask at the customer friendly reception for a lift if you have difficulty walking and also don’t forget the map of Angers with the car park that accepts Motorhomes if you need it.

The on-site lake is perfect for fishing and the site has its own vineyard and produces its own wine. The adjacent Parc de Loisirs offers a variety of activities for children, including boating, miniature train rides and pony rides.

There’s lots to do around and about including visits to lively Angers with its lovely old town and thriving café culture, château and riverside walks. A 20 minute walk takes you to Brissac with its market, restaurants and shops. The Châteaux de Brissac can be explored on a guided tour which offers access to some of its 200 rooms.

Visit the second biggest Zoo in France at Doué la Fontaine, only 20 minutes’ drive from the campsite and a fantastic day out for all ages.

Returning again

Le Domaine de L'Etang
We stayed here last June and really enjoyed it so we decided to book again in the hope that it was still as good 14 months on. The staff were very efficient and made us feel very welcome. The pitches are spacious and we had one well away from the lake which helped reduce the number of mozzies. We were looking to relax for the week and hoped to do a vineyard tour when the grapes were ripe. We booked onto a tour which also included wine tasting - and it was very informative (do not do it if you have mobility issues as it is across quite a few vineyards). We also recommend a visit to Anger and its Chateau. This is a great day out and the Chateau is not expensive. we hoped that the site would be as good as it was previously and we were not disappointed. We enjoyed our visit and found the staff to be very friendly and we also felt that the company ethos was commendable.

Le Domaine de L'Etang
We stopped of for 4 nights on the way up to Caen but wished we'd been able to stay longer. Good points: The site was very attractive with a fishing lake and stream running through it had a really relaxed feel to it, being really well laid out in little areas so that it didn't feel too expansive. There was a scenic walk along the stream into the nearby town of Brissac and the other way away from the town (although we didn't explore this). Staff were helpful and friendly. The restaurant was well run with excellent food and friendly staff. Pools were clean and attractive to sit by- not too busy either. Pitches were very private with hedging and the washrooms were very clean. Close to nearby towns. Bad points: Not much! But the closest village did not have much in it (bar/restaurants etc.) so book if you are aiming to eat out!

High hopes - disappointed!

Le Domaine de L'Etang
Having stayed in the Loire valley twice before, we were hopeful of a further good experience ... but alas, we arrived for our three night stay later in July only to find we were allocated a pitch amongst the overnight stayers and surrounded by young families - many with babies! When asked about their pitch allocation policy, this was apparently not done deliberately - yes well my name might as well be Mickey Mouse! We were in the second rank of pitches very close to the childrens' play area; swimming pool complex and reception / main entrance in and out and we had a general footpath next to our pitch .... so very little privacy either then and there were large numbers of equivalent pitches standing empty further back in the site. The shower & loo facilities were okay and the pool complex also looked very good. The shop; bar and restaurant were staffed by some very hard working staff who were also very courteous but, our overall feeling was of needing some serious peace and quiet - meaning this was not a good experience for us. Consequently, we will probably not return!!!

Great site but take some mozzie repellent!

Le Domaine de L'Etang
Stayed here for three nights at the start of a two week break and it was excellent - really could not fault it in any way. Pools nice, staff friendly, facilities good, pitch excellent with loads of space and some sunny and some shady bits. All in all a top place to stay. Would strongly recommend some mozzie repellent though. One night was really bad and woke up with a dozen or so bites the next day. Wouldn't stop me going back - just take some repellent!

Fabulous Week

Le Domaine de L'Etang
We spent a fabulous week on this site at the end of June. We found the staff extremely helpful, friendly and spoke great English. We participated in an organised wine tasting where we learnt that the site employs local disabled people to assist in the grounds and facilities giving them skills and support. The site own their own vineyard (we also recommend the vineyard tour). They are a not for profit organisation and put profits back into assisting their staff which we felt was great. Lots to do in the area. Do visit the Chateaux in the area. Brissac is a short stroll along the river and worth a visit. Saumur is also worth a visit and has 100km of tunnels below the city. We visited Maison Louis de Grenelle wine cave which was great value (30 min tour of the caves plus 5 wines to taste for 3 euro each) We found the site quiet and relaxing with both an outdoor and covered pool. Unfortunately we found the bar closed early 2100 but this could have been because we visited in low season. We ate in the restaurant twice and found the food to be value for money and good quality. We would also recommend buying their wine. We would consider going back as there was so much in the area that we didn't get to explore and this was a great relaxing base
