  • Peaceful family site among a huge landscaped garden
  • Two lakes for fishing and canoeing; Loire river a few kilometres away
  • Wellness centre, pools, miniature golf, archery, restaurant and bar

Do you yearn to take the kids on hol but also be in a serene setting among lush surroundings and flowery-filled gardens? See small sorts blossom at pretty and peaceful Camping Les Bois du Bardelet near Gien in the Loiret department, among lakes and trees for days of fishing, canoeing or just idling around these lovely grounds.

Les Bois du Bardelet is in a huge and flowery landscaped garden, with two lakes for fishing and canoeing. This is a luxury site, with excellently maintained facilities and an amiable, helpful team ready to assist you with whatever you need: the friendliness of the staff here is a mere one of the reasons why former guests determine they'll return.

There's both an outdoor and indoor pool for guests, along with (splendid idea) a big indoor paddling pool for kids with slides and toys so they can let off steam whatever the weather. This is best done while the grownups bubble gently in the Jacuzzi or sauna, part of the smart wellness centre on site where you can book Shiatsu massage and beauty treatments to keep you suitably soothed.

Miniature golf and archery are also on target to keep you occupied, as are tennis courts and ping pong tables, a volleyball court and a fitness suite. The restaurant, also acclaimed by guests, has a covered terrace overlooking one of the lakes; a bar with terrace for aperitifs or after-dinner wine is in the same handsome building.

    Huge pitch with plenty of room for the kids to run about in. Really clean and private pitches with tall hedging separating us from neighbours. This is a large site with a good mix of mainly Dutch, Belgian and British campers. Staff were extremely nice and welcoming. The bar/restaurant has excellent food and the staff again very friendly.
    Will definitely be back


    Our hook up equipment didn't reach the hook up stand as it was a fair distance away which we have never had an issue with before. However reception gave us an extension lead in exchange for a €30 refundable deposit.
    Toilet block by the swimming pool needs updated.

Local attractions

This lush land is close to the Loire river, among the castles, history, vineyards and old villages of the UNESCO-listed Loire Valley. The Camping Les Bois du Bardelet team arranges excursions to famed châteaux and vineyards in the region, as well as riverboat trips: have a natter with the staff on reception to see what's on offer during your stay.

Hire bikes for the family on site to take out on the many local cycle paths, starting a couple of kilometres from the grounds. If you'd rather wander, stride onto the waymarked footpath accessible straight from the site, and venture off into the countryside with the assistance of walking notes or maps from the staff. The Loire river is about five kilometres from here for riverside meanders.

Camping Les Bois du Bardelet is about 15 minutes' drive from Gien, on the Loire about an hour from Orléans. It's a royally handsome town (bought for medieval king Philip 2), with a castle and a famed bridge that's spanned the water here for centuries. The bridge is the best spot in town for taking a photo, particularly at night when both it and the castle are lit up; after that, cross back over to the modern part of town for a tasty bite at one of the excellent restaurants.
