Camping Le Martinet: Piscine chauffée

General

  • Peaceful site on the banks of the Loire river in Briare
  • Handy stopover for cyclists on the Loire à Velo path
  • Heated swimming pool, playground and pétanque on site

Hurrah for the Loire Valley, with its fab mix of châteaux, vineyards and scenic active days out. And hurrah for Briare, a laidback little Loiret town with both riverbank and tree-lined canal to wander along, and home to the longest metal bridge in all of France (designed by none other than Monsieur Eiffel, of Parisian tower-constructing fame).

And double hurrah for Camping Le Martinet, a peaceful site with a scenic setting on the banks of the Loire and a pleasant 15 minutes’ amble from Briare’s shops, restaurants and other amenities. This is a particularly fine spot for cyclists – its nifty location on the route of the Loire à Velo bike path makes it both a handy stopover for intrepid types taking in the full 800-kilometre epic and a staging post for fairweather folks seeking a pretty place to pedal.

It’s not just the two-wheeled travellers that will appreciate the easy access to the river: it’s also a bonus for folks seeking fishing, canoeing and riverside walks too. Swims aren’t allowed in the river, but there’s a heated pool on site that makes a fine place for an open-air dip.

Time spent on site is likely to be taken up mainly with chilling out, but there are games of pétanque and miniature golf to play if you need a little gentle activity, and a playground to keep the nippers happy. Other amenities around the wooded park include a launderette, washing-up area and bathrooms with accessible facilities.

    Location superb - The Loire and the canal.
    The town - although closed on Mondays & Tuesdays within easy reach along riverside walks. Very good price and the dog was welcome. Good sized and level pitches. On the Loire cycle route. An added bonus was the free WiFi.

    Disliked: 

    The ‘sanitaires’ - old, very basic and populated by house martins. The 2 new showers were fine with good supplies of hot water but the rest badly need updating

    Nous avons eu un très bon accueil. Nous sommes arrivés, en vélo, très tardivement par rapport à l'heure prévue. La personne de l’accueil avait pris la peine de nous téléphoner, s'inquiétant de notre absence.
    Donc accueil très sympathique et très aimable.
    Le camping est calme, il y a de l'espace.
    Nous n'avons pas été coincé entre deux camping-cars comme cela arrive parfois dans certains campings.

Directions


Local attractions

Begin with a bit of bimbling around Briare – it’ll take you 15 minutes or so to wander into the town centre to visit its best bits, including Château Trousse-Barrière, the mosaic museum and the Briare Canal Bridge. Boat trips along the Loire (short ones, long ones, fancy ones with dinner included) are a good way to see some of the surrounds, and the town’s also got a swimming pool with waterslides and spa for family splashing.

One château not enough? Set off for Château Gien and its hunting museum (15 minutes’ drive), medieval Château Saint-Brisson-sur-Loire (20 minutes) and Château de Sully-sur-Loire (35 minutes), built on three islands in the river. And if you’ve ever wondered how they did it all, get along to Guédelon (40 minutes away), where a bunch of folks are recreating a 13th-century castle from scratch using traditional techniques; they’ll let you have a go at some yourselves if you’re there at the right time.

The Loire Valley’s famed for its libations too, of course – if you’re into your crisp whites, Sancerre (45 minutes away) is a super starting point for a day (or few) of tours and tastings.
