General

  • Stunning site around an 18th-century castle and lake
  • Within 25 minutes' drive of Le Mans and two hours from Paris
  • Free fishing, pool, château bar, restaurant, farm and free tours

Pretty, peaceful and in spectacular surrounds including a château and a fishing lake – ooh la la and then some.

Scenic, friendly and fably equipped Camping Le Château de Chanteloup is near Sille-Le-Philippe in the Sarthe department, about 25 minutes' drive from the famed racing track of Le Mans and two hours from Paris. It's on a carefully preserved 22 hectares of meadows, woodland, gardens, an 18th-century castle and a lake for canoeing and angling. Fishing is popular here (and free), so pack your kit and get ready to land carp, roach and tench.

There's stacks to do at this luxury park, from strolling or cycling around the grounds to getting active with hours of swimming, badminton, ping pong, mountain biking and pétanque. A football pitch, two volleyball courts and a basketball hoop are also on site: do hone your skills before arriving as friendly competitions are regularly held in these (as well as in pétanque, fishing, basketball and ping pong).

More restfully, take yourself off to the pool, or simply have an early snooze instead, as a kids' club for ages four to 10 is run every day in high season by bilingual staff. An evening restaurant and takeaway are in the farm courtyard, and the Chanteloup bar is open throughout the season in the west wing of the castle. For peaceful retreats, a billiards table, TV room and book exchange are in the east wing.

Free guided tours of the grounds are available. Guests are also welcome to potter around the miniature farm at the entrance to the property, to coo over the critters and pick up a clutch of fresh eggs.

    Lovely location and facilities and a great stop off at the end of our holiday. One of the best play and pool areas I've seen but unobtrusive. Very polite and helpful staff. Large pitches for a stop over, great food from the takeaway and very peaceful.
    We only stayed for one night but are already intending on stopping for a few days next year. My little one loved it as did we.

Directions


From the A11, take Exit 7 signposted Le Mans Centre and Tours. Continue on the D388 to the ring road and turn onto the D313 signposted Le Mans, Le Mans Zone Industrielle Nord et Coulaines.

Local attractions

You may decide just to stay on site with all the kingly and queenly options at your regal fingertips, but do make some time to get out and about as well – as with the site, there's lots to do in the Sarthe surroundings.

Zip along to Le Mans for what the Camping Le Château de Chanteloup owners declare is the most beaut Gallo-Roman spot in France: this medieval city is full of houses from the 16th to 18th centuries. The stained glass windows in the cathedral should enthrall even non-historic kids, and the Nuit des Chimères light and sound shows in July and August are a must-see if you're around these parts in summer.

Le Mans racing track is home to the oldest sports car endurance race in the world (since 1923, petrolhead types) as well as the track's motorsports museum. Also much recommended is Ferté-Bernard, involved in the world's first motoring Grand Prix way back in 1903; the small city of Montmirail, and traditional villages such as Asnières-on-Vègre and Le Grand Lucé.
