Pitches

General

  • 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.

    Fantastic location and scenery.

    Disliked: 

    Due to close proximity of mill river, the tent camping field gets regularly flooded.
    This is why the campsite/farm owners cannot build a toilet/shower facility in that area. The facilities were some distance from the camping field.

    Idyllic rustic setting - old farmhouse, mill, farm. Well-equipped toilets, showers and washing. Lots of shady areas. BBQ, ping pong table.

    Sell their own eggs each morning.

    Disliked: 

    Location not as quiet as expected due to people riding mopeds up and down nearby road late at night, but that could have been a one-off.

    Just be aware there's no shop of any kind.

    Pleasant site, and easy walk to shops. Nice and quiet apart from the frogs in the water! They are really quite noisy, so for a quieter night stay further from the water!

    Disliked: 

From the manager...

Hello,
First of all, thanks for your comment.
Actually right now frogs are noisy at night
But it is: "the season of loves".
There are still some for a few nights, after that will be finished.
Cordially.
Beatrice, for the Meunier family

Bonjour,
Tout d'abord, merci pour votre commentaire.
Effectivement en ce moment les grenouilles sont bruyantes la nuit
Mais c'est :" la saison des amours".
Il y en a encore pour quelques nuit, après ce sera terminé.
Cordialement.
Béatrice, pour la famille Meunier

Directions


Local attractions

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…
