Swimming pool

General

  • Stunning luxury 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 with 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 site - wish we could have stayed longer.
    Great outdoor pool area.
    Facilities exceeded expectations.
    The shop had a great range of food available, fresh fruit and veg displays and liked the fact that a bakery came to the site each morning with fresh bread and pastries.
    All the precautions we expected in light of Covid-19 were taken and we felt safe and comfortable with hand santizer readily available.
    It was lovely to eat out in the open-air restaurant!

    This campsite is easily the most beautiful, relaxing, friendly, calm and well managed campsite we have ever stayed at - at we've been camping in France for 20 years. The owners were ever present and always keen for feedback. The campsite has a calm village feel - so much so that we never felt the need to leave. With a small farm, 3 clean swimming pools, an outside gym, basketball courts, lake and woodlands to discover there is so much to do. Not to mention the fantastic (free) kids club every day, onsite boulangerie delivery, take away pizza, beautiful bar, games room and restaurant. My only gripe would be the price of food in the on site shop which is extortionate. I don't feel the need to ever go to another campsite. We loved it and genuinely felt sad to leave.
    The pitch we had had a tap and electricity and a big bin which was emptied daily - definitely made camping easier.

    Stunning campsite based around a beautiful chateau within amazing grounds. My only regret was not staying longer as the site had so many activities on offer which really appealed especially the wake boarding and winery tour on cycles. Will just need to make sure we return again.

    This is a beautiful campsite in a stunning setting. Can I just say I dont think I have ever had such a great welcome onto a campsite in all the years we have been travelling in our motorhome. The staff are so welcoming, from the owner (whom I believe has only recently taken over the park) to the young people working in the various areas of the park.
    The toilet/shower blocks are plentiful and spotless clean.
    There is a well stocked shop for which the website plays down. It has everything you need from bread/milk to wine, spirits beer and food.
    There is a lovely bar with a large outdoor area for relaxing, a games room with pool table and a lovely restaurant with a takeaway serving window.
    The food and cocktails were delicious.
    My husband enjoyed the free fishing and caught some large carp to his delight.
    You can hire a fridge at your pitch for 5 euros per day which is delivered to your pitch.
    We seen an active kids club and the simming pool was lovely and a good size
    Overall this was a great site, very peaceful and relaxing

    Disliked: 

    The only down side is that there is nothing around locally if you like to take a walk or bike ride.

    The team at Le Chateau de Chanteloup were amazingly proactive and have deferred our reservation to 2021. Excellent customer service.

Directions


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 peeps) 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-sur-Vègre and Le Grand Lucé.
