- Heated amenities block with radio and music
Take a trip to the Touraine and base yourself at the lovely leafy surrounds of Camping Les Acacias for prime access to the River Loire, tours of Tours and châteaux galore. A friendly welcome awaits from owners Anne-Charlotte and Frédéric in La Ville-aux-Dames, close to the riverbank 15 minutes’ drive from the centre of Tours.
However you roam it’s easy to get here: it’s close to an exit off the D751 highway, 10 minutes’ drive from an intercity train station and a 15-minute drive from Tours airport. Once you’re through the gates, settle in for a peaceful time on a site filled with trees, grass and plenty of those splendid little shaded spots that encourage you to stretch out with a book, a baguette or a glass of wine (or some combination of the aforementioned).
Table tennis and pétanque await when you fancy a burst of activity, along with a fab play area for the kids – slides and a trampoline are joined by a giant inflatable castle in summer for bonus bouncing. In danger of overheating? Wander over to the swimming pool for a dip, then stretch out on the surrounding lawn for a comfy place to keep an eye on kids who want to continue their aquatic antics.
In high summer you can have a good feed at the site’s restaurant – nibble on pizzas, steaks and classic French desserts on the open terrace, accompanied by live music from the concert stage on some nights. Barbecues are welcome too; a small shop on site sells essentials including fresh bread and there’s a supermarket a five-minute drive or 20-minute walk from the site.
Essentials are equally well supplied here. Any muck and crumples you’ve acquired on your days out can be easily dealt with at the launderette, and a washing-up area awaits your plates. And many previous guests highlight the toilet facilities as a selling point for this site: clean, well-equipped, heated on chillier days and with a finishing touch of piped music to aid your best shower-singing efforts.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Saddle up for a day (or indeed several days) of cycling: this is prime territory for those who like to explore on two wheels, and the site has a range of adult and kids’ bikes that you can hire to save transporting your own. The big daddy of cycle trails here is La Loire à Vélo, an 800-kilometre track that flanks the river all the way down to the coast. Don’t feel obliged to ride the whole thing; the seven-kilometre riverside route into Tours makes a most pleasant portion for many guests.
Once you’re in Tours (it should take half an hour by bike or 15 minutes in the car), visit the cathedral and Fine Arts Museum, take a walk around the botanic gardens and poke around in the city’s food and flower markets.
Another excellent use of your bikes is a tour of the area’s vineyards and wineries – there’s a cluster of them within a 45-minute cycle, so you can make a great day out meandering between them to see the traditional storage caves and sample the wines (mainly whites and sparklers), with a riverside picnic to fuel the trip.
The Loire region is rightly famed for its castles, and there are several within striking distance here, either by bike or in the car. 15 minutes in the car takes you to the gorgeous gardens of Château de Valmer, while a 25-minute drive (or hour’s riverside cycle) lands you in Amboise, where you can visit the medieval Château d’Amboise and Château de Close Luce, former residence of Leonardo da Vinci. The beaut house and gardens of Château de Villandry are around 40 minutes away by car.
