Bourges, the ideal holiday destination!
Bourges may be best known for its spring music festival, but the town is more than worth a visit in summer! Make the most of your Sandaya campsite holiday in the Loire Valley and treat yourself to a trip to Bourges, where gardens, listed monuments and mediaeval remains never fail to catch the eye.
And for the rest of the time, your Sandaya campsite has everything in hand to make your stay totally unforgettable: fun and sports activities, free entertainment for the kids, entertaining evenings or outings to explore the region. It’s all here for you, whatever you want to do! Tempted to try glamping? Discover a new experience with a stay in a tree-house or a fully-equipped lodge tent! If some prefer pitching their own tent whilst others would rather find all their familiar comfort in a mobile home, everyone is welcome at a Sandaya campsite!
Visit Bourges with the family
After a great breakfast at the campsite, it’s time to head for Bourges and a day rich in discoveries! One spot you really must visit during your trip: Place Gordaine and its lively terraces. It also opens the door to the unmissable Rue Bourbonnoux in the heart of the mediaeval district. The imposing half-timbered houses that line the street never fail to impress even the youngest!
From there it takes only ten minutes to walk to the sublime Marais de Bourges where 135 hectares of gardens and water offer a delightful spot for a stroll. The perfect place to enjoy a picnic with the family!
