Your holiday rental near Beauval Zoo

After long days spent playing princes and princesses in the most beautiful of the Loire châteaux, the kids are going to love discovering the lions, cheetahs, koalas and giraffes at Beauval Zoo in the Loir-et-Cher! This is one family trip that will be hard to beat during your Sandaya campsite holiday in the Val de Loire, just a few minutes away from the Château de Chambord. On the campsite itself you’ll be able to enjoy the sparkling turquoise water of its aquatic park and river-lagoon. So as the little campers delight in spending hours shooting down the waterslide, others can enjoy taking a welcome break with their toes in the water or a refreshing swim in the lap pools. You prefer staying on dry land? There’s certainly no shortage of outdoor activities: pedal go-karts for a family outing to explore the vast château estate, petanque courts, mini-golf course, multisports ground... Each can put together their own activity programme to do exactly what they want to! And so they can make a host of new holiday friends, your Sandaya campsite’s free children’s clubs welcome all youngsters from 5 to 17 years old for plenty of fun entertainment just right for their age and all the activities they love. So all you need to do now is book your spot in a tent, chalet, campervan or maybe even a tree-house, and your Sandaya holiday can begin!

Head off to Beauval Zoo with all the family

A visit to Beauval Zoo is an amazing opportunity to see some of the rarest species present in France. So come and say hi! to the giant pandas, okapis, meerkats or the family of Sumatran tigers! You’ll also have a chance to watch the show put on by the manatees in the sea-lion pool and an incredible free-flying demonstration by some 500 of the zoo’s birds and birds of prey. And for all those who dream of slipping into the shoes of a zookeeper, discover the educational activities organised within the zoo itself so you can get as close as possible to the animals!

See the pandas at the Beauval Zoo

Since their arrival in 2012, they are without doubt the stars at the Beauval ZooParc! A pair of giant pandas from Sichuan, central China, lives at the zoo in a vast enclosure that faithfully replicates their native habitat. Considered as veritable national treasures, giant pandas are an endangered species and their very short reproductive cycle does nothing to help natural mating. Which is why the birth of a baby panda in 2017, Yuan Meng, was so eagerly awaited! You’ll even be able to get a glimpse of this adorable little bundle of fur with his family in the “Sur les Hauteurs de Chine” area of the zoo.

How to get there?

Whilst the most beautiful routes in the Loire are best travelled by bike, we do however recommend taking the car to get to the Beauval ZooParc! From your Sandaya campsite, follow the Loire to Blois via the D951, then head for Saint-Aignan-sur-Cher on the D675. Take exit no. 12 and follow the “zoo” signposts!
