Selected because this family run site occupies a unique position less than a 10-min walk along the River Indre to the centre of the royal medieval city of Loches. It also offers easy access from the main arteries through the Loire Valley. As the name of the site suggests it is famous for its magnificent château and ramparts. From the edge of the site, you have a view of the three towers, the Church, the Logis Royal and La Tour St Antoine. The weir and display of potted plants at the site entrance create a welcoming atmosphere and complement the lovely variety of trees around the pitches.

Good campsite in an excellent location. The music in the toilets was a little unusual though!

A great spot for motorhomes as just a short walk right into the centre of Loches which is well worth a visit. Good pitches and attractive bar area.
