Orléans, the ideal holiday destination!
Between the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the present day, Orléans’ journey down the centuries has only added to its charm. From youngest to oldest you can’t help but be enchanted! So if the Valley of the Kings has caught your eye for the holidays, hesitate no longer and take up your summer quarters at one of our campsites in the Loire Valley. You certainly won’t regret it!
In Orléans, as throughout the Unesco listed region of the Loire Valley, natural and built heritage exist side-by-side in perfect harmony. After a visit to Chambord, or a bike ride along the banks of the Loire, relax in the vast grounds of your Sandaya campsite: wellness area, heated swimming pools, outdoor leisure and sports activities... come and recharge the batteries! And to be sure of sleeping like a baby, simply choose your favourite accommodation: quirky cabin, cottage with every comfort or camping pitch?
Visit Orléans with the family
Trips by quadricycle, visits to explore the Loire châteaux, high-speed competitions on the waterslides... When camping with Sandaya, the kids will be the kings of your holiday in the Centre-Val de Loire! And it’s still playtime when you get to Orléans! So, ready to live a fabulous day with all the family?
First stop: Charlemagne Island, a 70ha outdoor activity centre on the banks of the Loire with games galore, sports grounds and a sandy beach. Then it’s time to head for the sublime Parc Floral de la Source, just south-east of Orléans. Lying between the rivers Dhuy and Loiret, this remarkable garden is also home to a butterfly house, a tropical garden and an authentic train running on rails. The kids are certain to adore it!
Visit Orléans as a couple
We know how hard it is to drag yourself away from the comfort of your Sandaya campsite... but with our special “Orléans for two” holiday itinerary you’ll be so glad you did!
Let your journey begin back in medieval days, Rue de la Charpenterie, as you admire the authentic half-timbered houses. Then, head towards the famous Sainte-Croix Cathedral to discover the most gorgeous view over the town. From the top of its 252 steps, you’ll be able to see as far as the Sologne, easily recognisable thanks to its immense forest! Finally, it’s time to cast off for a royal boat trip aboard an authentic toue, the traditional local fishing boat. And, to end the day the best possible way, it even drops you off at a romantic guinguette, for an evening of dining and dancing on the riverbank!
