Loire châteaux

Your Sandaya campsite right beside Château de Chambord is open all summer long for holidays fit for a king in the Loir-et-Cher! The Val-de-Loire is France's largest location listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, forms the birthplace of the Renaissance, which flourished here, and is symbolised by the famous Loire châteaux. Dotted along 280 kilometres of the Loire River, from the Anjou to the Loiret, the châteaux of the Loire are a genuine marvel for campers who have come to explore this Valley of the Kings. During your camping stay in the Val-de-Loire, close to Tours, Blois, Chambord and in the surrounding region, you too will be plunging into the most illustrious episodes of France's history and setting off to discover its most wonderful examples of architecture!

A 5 star campsite with the châteaux of the Loire all around

Why content yourself with only visiting the châteaux of the Loire, when you can also take advantage of accommodation with all the mod cons that's a stone's throw from Chambord? Enjoy a stopover with the family at the 5 star Château des Marais campsite and discover its huge range of accommodation options for the whole family: quirky cabins perched in the trees, fully equipped cottages, upmarket chalets and pitches for tents, caravans or campervans. In its 14 hectares of grounds in the Val-de-Loire, you'll be able to enjoy all sorts of outdoor activities, by yourselves or organised by our professional teams: badminton tournaments beside the Loire, games of pétanque on the boulodromes, some fishing in  the little campsite lake or theme-based evenings on the show stage. So many activities for the whole family to enjoy! Smaller campers are also welcome free of charge with their friends at the children's mini clubs, so they can have a go at new activities and play their favourite games. And of course the campsite's big water park with swimming pools and waterslides awaits visitors of all ages for endless sessions in the water! And outside the campsite lie all sorts of cycle paths for travelling through the Loire Valley by bike, and then you can round off the day by relaxing in the campsite's wellness area. Everyone is free to put together whatever schedule they feel like, which is what makes Sandaya camping holidays what they are!

Château de Chambord

The first stop during your Sandaya camping holiday in the Val-de-Loire is Château de Chambord, the biggest and most famous of them all! Leading light of the Renaissance and a masterpiece financed by Francis 1st in 1519, the royal estate of Chambord takes centre stage in 5,500 hectares of grounds, the entrance to which is a mere 10 minutes from your family-friendly campsite. During your stay, you'll be able to come and see within its walls, as well as enjoy its decorative features, built around a central axis: the famous double helix staircase, inspired by Leonardo da Vinci. Outside, your tour starts with its huge, French-style gardens, which go back to the reign of Louis XIV and which were fully recreated in 2016. Come and enjoy a bucolic stroll through its historic grounds! Tourists from all over France, visitors passing through and people who just adore lovely sights should get ready for a feast for the eyes!

Château de Cheverny

South of Chambord, just half an hour from your Sandaya campsite, Château de Cheverny makes for a must-see during your journey of discovery of the châteaux of the Loire. Having remained intact since it was built during the 17th century, Château de Cheverny is especially popular with visitors due to its rich interior decor: during your visit, come and see its collection of arms dating from the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries, its famous Les Gobelins tapestry and its Louis XIV commode. Whatever the time of year, the gardens here are wonderful for a nice stroll to enjoy with the family, from its garden of 100,000 tulips to its bay tree maze. A place that's really popular among little adventure-minded campers too!

Château de Talcy

Just a few kilometres from Blois and only 15 minutes from your Sandaya campsite near Chambord, Château de Talcy, which is smaller in scale, is especially recognisable due to its mediaeval style. Inside, you'll be able to see what is known as the bedroom of Catherine de Médici, the superb dining hall and the Grand Salon, as well as its period furniture and various perfectly preserved paintings. Formerly a farming estate, the château, set in 7 hectares of grounds, stands in the heart of the cereal-growing plains of la Petite Beauce. During spring, you'll be able to see the orchard at its best, as well as its large collection of fruit trees and its lovely flower beds, which are bound to remind you of the gorgeous landscapes of protected nature in the Loire Valley!

Château de Beaugency

With its keep at a height of 36 metres, you can see Château de Beaugency beside the Loire well before you get within its walls. Famous, among other things, for being the home of Jean de Dunois, comrade of Joan of Arc (and known as the Bastard of Orléans), Château de Beaugency has retained its appearance as a royal lodge, which you'll see as you go from room to room. You'll be able to visit the wonderful chapel, the impressive armoury of its guard room, the royal bedchamber with its big four-poster bed, the oratory decorated with frescoes and the hanging garden, decorated with rose bushes, giving it the appearance of a wooded park. Whatever the time of year, young and old alike will feel as though they've entered a fairytale! So isn't it time, right now, that you paid a visit to your family-friendly, luxury Sandaya campsite?
