Sunny and 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.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Dogs are not allowed in the on-site accommodations.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

    Fantastic peaceful location, facilities were spot on with lovely toilet/showers and a great practical kitchen . We made use of one of the BBQ’s. Owners have created a hidden “ GEM” here. Sadly we only stayed one night but will definitely be returning. Strongly recommend a stay if your travels take you to France

Small well looked after camping site that was created with love.07/31/2020

  • Liked: 

    Small site with an old house as the focal point. The bathrooms and shower facilities were really nice. Julienne and Tina have worked hard to make this special spot unique. Their attention to detail is seen all over. For example there is an herb garden with signs of each herb planted - complete with a help yourself sign too. The showers were a welcome and unexpectedly nice facility. A communal kitchen is on offer if you don’t have one yourself. While I pitched up a tent, there were also permanent safari huts, campers brought by clients and even a few rooms in the big house where you could stay. I really enjoyed the region - being off the beaten track. The way there and then back out filled with lovely small villages and communes which, not having been in the area before, really gave me a sense of the region. Calm, well looked after, I would be happy to return.

    What a delight this site is. Beautifully laid out, spotless, tasteful, attention to detail marvellous. Tina and Julian are perfect hosts and thoroughly nice people. We really enjoyed our time there, our evening around the fire pit and our trips out to brocantes and lovely Saumur. Absolutely top notch site, brilliant facilities too, was a lovely touch to pick fruit and veg from their garden and cook it. Can’t wait to return to this site and see these marvellous folk again!

    A warm welcome from the the delightful English owners. The camping area was spacious with shade as required. We loved the help yourself vegetable patch and herb garden. Facilities were spotless and looked brand new.
    The campsite is very quiet and we wish we has stayed more than one night.

    lovely sight - spotlessly clean and ran by a very sociable / friendly couple. The bathrooms were spotless and are hotel standard and the little extras - a herb and vegetable garden and campers kitchen for example make this site my favourite to date. I will definitely be staying again and recommending to friends and family. The area is great for cycle rides and there are some lovely places to visit nearby.

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.
