Camping Loire Valley & Central France

Camping in the Loire Valley and Central France is a great way to really immerse yourself in French life and culture. This lush, green region is criss-crossed by many great rivers and is famous for its vast swathes of vineyards producing some of France's finest wines. This makes it an ideal camping destination and perfect for those who love outdoor activities such as swimming, cycling, walking, fishing and golf.

Campsites in the Loire Valley are also great for exploring the ancient history of the area. It is here that Henry II, his wife, Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine and their son Richard the Lionheart are buried. There are an array of museums and châteaux to explore, and the Puy du Fou stages breath-taking shows with warring Vikings, clashing Gladiators and even chariot races.

With a fishing lake and vineyard on site, serving and selling its own wine, you can really relax and unwind at Domaine de l'Etang. The site is less than 1 mile away from the local village of Brissac which hosts the tallest Château in France.

A great base for discovering the Loire châteaux and central Loire valley, and fun for young children. In a quiet Tours suburb, it’s also a good choice for motorhomers, with buses to Tours centre stopping 50m from the site entrance.

Set in the heart of the Loire Valley, within easy walking distance of the historic centre of Saumur with its imposing château. The weekly market is a must and, if time permits, a visit to the world-renowned vineyards that surround the town.

Located by a river on the edge of the small town of Chef-Boutonne, this peaceful campsite lets you get away from it all. The château in Chef-Boutonne shouldn’t be missed and the brandy cellars of Cognac are well worth the half hour drive.

The peaceful, wooded setting of this campsite is perfect for anglers with a lake on site where fishing or boating is available. The site is also great if you're a keen walker or cyclist, with many rural paths around so you can enjoy the local countryside.

A good modern site convenient not only as a stopover between the ports and the south-west but also great for longer stays. Either lounge by the adjacent lake or have a day out at the nearby Futuroscope theme park.
