General

  • Scenic family-friendly site on the banks of the Varenne
  • Normandie-Maine Regional Nature Park hiking trails from the site
  • Pool, miniature golf, pedalos, fishing, snack bar and weekly market

Picture the scene: feet up, locally-brewed cider in hand, nothing but green in sight and the sound of a river flowing by... how does that sound? Have the lot by heading to Camping Le Parc de Vaux, a family-friendly site five minutes’ drive from the small Pays de la Loire town of Ambrières-les-Vallées in the department of Mayenne.

As the site's in the Normandie-Maine Regional Nature Park and on the banks of the Varenne, there are plenty of green and watery explores around here. Hiking trails along towpaths and the Mayenne verges leave directly from the grounds, there are pedalos for hire during summer months if getting out on the water appeals, and the St Loup vélorail starts within 10 minutes for pedallers and the 615-kilometre-long Vélo Francette cycle route passes five minutes away.

There’s plenty of adventure to be had on site too – 18 holes of miniature golf to putt around on, pétanque and tennis courts for other precision ball games, a playground and climbing wall for the kids, a market every week, and a swimming pool (free during high season) with slides for splashing times.

During high season, there’s a snack bar and takeaway on site: make your way here for fries, pizza, paninis or ice cream to get energy back post-swims. Or pick up local eats in Ambrières-les-Vallées or Mayenne... including a cheese course or two – it’s somewhat of a speciality round these parts.

Please note

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

Exceptionally beautiful location09/20/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Electric optional grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The location of this camp site by a beautiful river is so tranquil and peaceful and yet next to a swimming pool, tennis courts, and horse riding, there is lots to do so it caters for couples and those with children.

    There is a small supermarket less than a mile away which sells all campers need food and toiletries wise.

    The pieces de resistance for me was the bicycle trail and the camp site office had all the necessary maps and trails which was great. It offers 70km of fab disused railway tracks to mountain bike or gravel ride on, all with fantastic scenery and so many interesting stop offs along the way. It was this that brought me here and did not disappoint. In fact I plan to come again next year to ride all the trails I could not fit in this two day stay.

    The site had a nice combination of touring vans and tents (though very quiet during my stay) and chalet accommodation.

    The lady who worked in the office was warm, friendly and helpful.

    Disliked: 

    The only thing i was not sure about was the availability and cleanliness of showers. There was no waiting for me and lashings of hot water but possibly in high season, there might be a tight squeeze at busy times. I did not see any toilet paper in bathrooms nor items to enable people to easily clean any sinks or showers after use. In light of the current situation i would have expected this.

  • Liked: 

    Location was amazing , told to pitch anywhere we liked so we opted for overlooking the river , and we angled our caravan at a jaunty angle to get the best view of the river and we weren’t berated by the caravan police !!!! Stayed three very enjoyable nights . Ambrieres is quaint if it’s not closed but there is a little bar that does great food opposite the pharmacy . Campsite owners were sweet, let us leave our unit packed and ready to go while we went for lunch in our departure day .

    Disliked: 

    This is not a dislike but an observation . Water points Were only around the chalets and tents for hire pitches. A few more around the river area would be a bonus but it wasn’t really a chore to wheel the aqua roll 50 metres it would just feel like we were serviced a little better.

    Very friendly welcome.
    We had trouble with the ferries, contacted the site to say we would be to book in, asked if we could park on car park overnight? The answer was yes, we arrived late and to my surprise the gentleman must of looking out for us, gave us a warm welcome and showed around. I was impressed.

    We had a fantastic week here. Very clean and tidy, child friendly. The owners are very helpful. The bonus of an amazing pool metres from the accommodation that's free to people staying on the site is a huge bonus. Plenty to do around the site and area, tge local villages are beautiful. Highly recommend this site, we were sad to leave but will be back!!

Directions


Local attractions

Start stays in Ambrières-les-Vallées with a visit to the museum of the weavers (Musée des Tisserands) and a stop at Fieudière discovery farm to feed calves and meet the rabbits, chicken and goats.

For animal encounters of a different sort, claim a spot on the Varenne riverbank and cast out a line, or pile the kids into the car for a jaunt to the Refuge de l’Arche zoo and visits to its lions, tigers and bears (woohoo), a little over an hour away.

There are plenty of classic French châteaux nearby if seeing how royalty lived is your crowning joy: get slightly palindromic at Château de Lassay in Lassay-les-Châteaux and poke around the museum in Château de Mayenne, both within 15 minutes, then wander further afield for the sprawling Château de Fougères and the fab 13th-century Chateau de Bourgon.

More history can be had at the archaeological museum and old Roman city of Jublains or the Royer Josselin museum of cider – very different experiences, but both worthwhile. Otherwise, opt for climbs and explores at Vallée Grottes de Saulges, just under an hour away, or make the crossing to the spectacular island town of Mont St Michel, an hour and a half from base.
