Camping La Fortinerie

View prices & book
Spacious semi-shaded pitches

General

  • Peaceful site between Vernantes and Mouliherne in the Forêt de Monnaie
  • Less than half an hour from Saumur and the Loire river
  • Communal barbecue area, well-equipped kitchen and smart bathrooms

Four acres of family-friendly space flanked by fields and forest – how fab. Quiet rural site Camping La Fortinerie is a family-run place on the edge of the Forêt de Monnaie, with heaps of space but only a handful of guests on site at any one time to preserve the peace.

And how even more fab – Saumur is less than half an hour away by car for when you fancy breaking away from the woodsy surrounds for days meandering around the medieval château, taking in a show at Le Cadre Noir, paddling along the Loire or sampling the town’s array of sparkling wines.

You’ll not need to stray all that way for food though, for there are supermarkets, butchers, bakers and the like in the nearby villages of Vernantes and Mouliherne, and plenty of local markets to poke about in. Supplies sorted, you’re keenly encouraged to spend a chilled out evening on site cooking on the communal barbecue and sipping something from one of the area’s wineries.

Should you wish to retreat indoors to prep your meals, it’s a short stroll to the well-equipped kitchen (with microwave, oven, fridge-freezer, crockery, pans and the like); it’s also here that you’ll be able to freshen up your togs with the laundry facilities. As for freshening up yourself, that’s easily sorted in the smart shared bathrooms, which are kitted out with rain showers, mirrors and power sockets for your beautifying gadgets.

    Everything. The owners couldn't be more friendly and helpful, they have thought of everything that anyone might like including fresh veg, herbs and eggs from their gardens. The bathrooms are hotel standard the best we have ever encountered whilst camping. The Campers kitchen is so well equipped you need for nothing. The whole site is quirky and beautiful with so many clever ideas and touches. Well done Tina and Julian for the gem of a place you have created, we will definately be coming back

Directions


Local attractions

It’s well worth making the half-hour car journey to Saumur for a day trip, wandering round its château and taking your place in the audience for the military horse shows at the famed Le Cadre Noir. If you’ve a little more time, the town’s also home to a tank museum, a mushroom museum and several places that you can hire canoes for a Loire-based paddle.

Time for a glass of vino? Saumur’s the place for those who favour bubbles; there are plenty of fab places to take a winery tour and pick up a bottle or two around Angers (45 minutes’ drive away) as well.

For an insight into how different folks lived their lives, pay a visit to the troglodyte village 40 minutes away at Rochemenier or wander round the rather fancier digs at Château de Montgeoffroy or Château de Gizeux. Should the tiddlers tire of history, there’s an excellent zoo in Doué-la-Fontaine.
