GIEN Les Bois du Bardelet


Selected because of its location in the centre of the Loire Valley near the famous Sancerre vineyards and the town of Gien, seat of the first château of the Loire. It is attractively laid out with two lakes, one for fishing and one for boating. Two indoor pool areas and an excellent fitness area make this site a good low season choice. It is a lively spot in high season with plenty of organised activities and good facilities for sports.
