- Simple site on a working farm in the Loire valley
- Riverside location for fishing
- Meet the animals: ducks, hens, goats, pigs and cows all on site
This shaded bolthole on the banks of a river is a mighty nifty base for exploring the Loire valley...
Basic but well-kept facilities are surrounded by a busy and pioneering farm at Camping Le Moulin de Saussaye, whose owner is passionate about sustainable and eco-friendly techniques (the kids will be passionate too about saying bonjour to the resident animals).
It's five minutes' drive from here to the pleasant village of L'Île-Bouchard, cut in two by the Vienne river and home to a bakery, supermarkets and plenty of eating places. The winding river trail from Le Moulin de Saussaye, meanwhile, leads to the handsome village of Crissay-sur-Manse, with its white limestone cottages and ruined 15th-century castle; swim in the river here in summer months, or hire canoes to explore further.
If you prefer to zip around the countryside on four wheels, the historic towns of Tours, Angers and Saumur can all be reached in under an hour and a half's drive. Sensible sorts should also take time to consider what else the Loire valley is famed for: most happily, the farm is minutes away from the Loire's fab 800-kilometre wine route.

You can't come to the Loire and not look at a château or two... Villandry is half an hour's drive away and an absolute stunner, specifically for its extensive Renaissance gardens. Château Amboise (an hour), built on a spur overlooking the Loire, was so splendidly well-appointed that King Charles VII pinched it off its owner and set up residence there. Also an hour away, Château Chenonceau arguably tops the lot, built on arches straddling the Cher river.
Saumur (50 minutes), like most Loire towns, is a lovely spot to wander and window shop; it's also home to the famed Cadre Noir riding school, whose balletic displays of horsemanship draw crowds from all over the world. For something out of this world, meanwhile, the digital magic of Futuroscope, a theme park like no other, is just outside Poitiers (50 minutes).
After the châteaux, see how the other half lived in the troglodyte village near Rochemenier (an hour). Inhabited until the 1930s, this rock village has subterranean farms and a hidden chapel to explore. Mind your head.
From rare housing to rare inhabitants, ZooParc Beauval (an hour) is home to red pandas and white tigers; the sea lions lay on a splendid daily show outdone only by the birds, five hundred of whom – including owls and pelicans, storks and parrots – swoop over your heads in the avian amphitheatre: best bring an umbrella…
