Château de Cheverny
The Centre-Val de Loire, the ideal destination for your camping holiday
In the Centre-Val de Loire, the beauty of the natural landscape is only equalled by the incredible built heritage that the kings of France bequeathed. From Tours to Orléans, the majestic Loire châteaux seem to lead seamlessly from one to another, never ceasing to amaze all those who visit from around the world! Whichever route you choose, the Centre-Val de Loire is certain to satisfy your desire to get away from it all and discover new horizons, whether young in age or young at heart.
After a well-filled day spent exploring, return to the special natural setting of your campsite to appreciate a tranquil moment of peaceful relaxation. On the shady terrace of your mobile home, perched on high in a tree-house or under the canvas of your tent, enjoy a little well-deserved lazing. But if you’re looking for activities, you’ll be spoilt for choice: pétanque, aquagym in the swimming pools of the water park, sports tournaments on the multisports ground... So, what’s on your programme for the day?
Visit the Centre-Val de Loire with the family
Ready for an epic family adventure as you conquer the greatest of the Loire châteaux? First step: Chambord, considered the king of châteaux and emblem of the Renaissance, it was the brainchild of François I. Then it’s time to head for Blois and its Royal Château, waiting to reveal all the secrets of the French court. In the summer, come and watch the impressive fencing displays, balls and concerts that vibrantly bring the château back to life!
South of the city, it’s the turn of the Château de Cheverny to recount its story. Everyone knows the Adventures of Tintin... but will the kids notice that the château here bears more than a passing resemblance to the Château de Moulinsart! And then there’s the maze at the Château de Villandry near Tours, perfect to awaken their taste for mystery and adventure...
Visit the Centre-Val de Loire as a couple
The Centre-Val de Loire counts a host of towns and villages steeped in character and perfect for a gentle stroll hand-in-hand. Or take the Loire à Vélo cycle trail and head off towards Tours to explore the prettiest corners of the city, once the capital of France. Take a break in Place Plumereau to sip a glass of wine as you admire the superb half-timbered houses!
And when it comes to countryside, the Centre-Val de Loire can boast some of the most beautiful villages in France such as the fortified royal town of Loches, Chédigny, Richelieu and Montrésor, a treasure that justly deserves its name!
