Camping de L’Île Auger: Exterior

General

  • Quiet, dog-friendly site set over 5.8 hectares by the River Vienne
  • In the UNESCO-listed town of Chinon; Tours 40 minutes' drive
  • Play area, picnic benches and laundry room; public pool over the road

On the edge of the UNESCO-listed town of Chinon, with fantastic views over its royal fortress, Camping de L’Île Auger is a simple site set in 5.8 hectares of green space alongside the peaceful River Vienne. Settle down in this quiet spot for Loire Valley day trips full of wine, countryside strolls and exceptional architecture.

If you’re whiling some time away on site, there’s a play area, picnic benches and a barbecue space. The on-site laundry room is a less fun, but always handy, addition. It’s also worth noting that the site is pet-friendly and well-behaved dogs are welcome. Two-minutes’ walk over the road is a municipal public pool, where overnight guests at the site get discounted entry.

Chinon town centre's mix of cafés, crêperies, restaurants and food shops are under a kilometre away, meaning 10 minutes on foot is all you need to access its many attractions and amenities.

You'd also do well to bring a bike along, as this part of the Loire Valley is full of cycle-friendly tracks and trails that hug the rivers and go deep inland through quiet countryside. A few hundred metres away from base there is also a kayak hire shop.

Please note

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

No naked flames are allowed inside the hired accommodation units.

Discount cards and gift vouchers cannot be applied to bookings made via Pitchup.com.

Protective masks must be worn at all times in common areas.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    This site situated below the ancient walls of the fabulous city of Chinon and on the banks of the river is wonderful. Staff were very hospitable and answered all questions for us. Wonderful to be able to walk into to the city easily from the site.
    All in all, a real gem.
    Site facilities are very good

Well-situated site with clean facilities, friendly staff and shady pit21/04/2022

    Great location to be able to walk into Chinon and as a base from which to visit chateaux and Loire wineries. We visited early in the season so only one sanitation block was open but that was fine - showers were good and hot and everything was slick and span and the welcome very friendly.

    Pitches are large and grassy and shaded. When we visited you could select your own pitch rather than having one pre-assigned.

    Speed and coverage of the public Wi-Fi was fine - in fact some of the best on-site Wi-Fi coverage we’ve experienced!

    Disliked: 

    Nothing - we’ll visit again

    Lovely location next to the river with views of Chinon fortress. We only stayed one night so didn't explore the local area much but we walked into Chinon for dinner on the square. The campsite was peaceful and clean, and the staff were friendly.

Directions


Local attractions

You can hardly miss Chinon’s Royal Fortress, perched high above the river opposite the campsite. A 10-minute stroll will take you through its gates and on a journey to discover its tumultuous history spanning 2,000 years.

If you’re visiting this region on holiday, taking a tipple or two is usually on the to-do list. Visit the Combier Distillery (30 minutes’ drive) – the Loire Valley’s oldest – to see how they’ve been brewing up gin, absinthe and all manner of liqueurs since 1834. Or simply search for vineyards near Chinon and take your pick to sample some fine Saumur wines.

The city of Tours (40 minutes’ drive) is an easy day trip where a wander around the Musée des Beaux-Arts or Jardin Botanique is a lovely way to pass an afternoon. A more adventurous way to explore the world of plants is an hour away by car at Terra Botanica theme park. Or make friends with the animals at Zoo de la Flèche (1 hour 10 minutes).
