A friendly and welcoming atmosphere

In the heart of the Loire valley, the site is an ideal base for visiting the many chateaux, gardens and other tourist attractions in the area.

Enjoy the most beautiful chateau in the loire valley

The Chateau of Chenonceau is 1.5km downstream and is well worth a visit.

Enjoy the many attractions next to the campsite

Beauval zoo, Leonardo Da Vinci's house, hot air balloon flights, Chateau of Chenonceau, Amboise, Chambord... So many things to do !

The pool is really fun !

It’s deep so it’s good for practising diving and there’s a little pool to splash about in when you get tired.

Ideally located for this fascinating region

Stay at Le Moulin Fort to discover the land of chateaux, gardens and wine in the heart of France.

January 2018

Already the 17th of January!

Happy New Year to all our friends and customers. 

The end of 2017 was spent in a frozen New York City with temperatures not getting above 0 degrees for the whole time we were there and reaching a low of -18°C !



We had to dress appropriately!! 

The new year has started wet and windy as expected, the level of The Cher is very high!  


...but the guys have been able to start work on the tree pruning. 



We were invited to Vakantiebeurs in Utrecht by the Caravan and Motorhome Club for their annual meeting.  
We were very pleased to accept their Small Campsite Award.  



Bookings are steadily coming in, as are artists for our summer music evenings (the full list will be on the Entertainment pages shortly). 
We are still looking for summer staff - so if you know anyone.......

December 2017


MERRY CHRISTMAS ONE AND ALL...!  


This is our 2017 Christmas greetings card - if you didn't get one - we haven't got your full address!! (make sure your address is correct next time you check in at the campsite)



Even the museum has some Christmas decorations!

Some serious news for next season - the Commune (council) are introducing a Tourist Tax for the 2018 season.  The amounts collected will be used to improve the tourist infrastructure in the area, such as the tourist offices, sign posts and cycle paths. The cost of this tax is 0.40€ per night per adult over 18 years.  Make sure we have the correct age for your children on check in. 

We have now passed the winter solstice, so summer and long, lazy sunny days are not far away!  Bookings are being taken for the summer.  We have pitches available for all dates, although riverside pitches in June and late July are limited.

November

Back at Le Moulin Fort, winter has arrived with some chilly mornings and blue skies.  Greg is battling the leaves onsite and Frans has really helped clearing our old back garden.  



October half-term is over and we survived a 4150km trip to the UK - 21 counties visited and many, many people! We'll tell you all about it one day! 
John included a visit to Brooklands Museum with Jim as the girls were off doing other things. Fancy doing over 100mph on this surface? 



We have discovered a cake in a cupboard but can't remember where it came from..! Anyone any ideas?  

We’ve been contacted by a German girl who is looking for the opportunity to spend some time in the UK : a few days/weeks either as an au pair, on a student exchange or simply staying with a family who would be happy to host her and get her speaking with English people.  She’s 15 (16 in May), bilingual (German / French) and is good at English with a passion for… theater! Please pass on this message and let us know if you have any ideas of how to help! 

Bookings for next summer are being accepted by email and via the Caravan Club.  Riverside pitches are already very busy, particularly in July; so if you like sitting by the river watching the world float by - think about contacting us to make a booking sooner rather than later. 

If you would like to spend the summer working with us at Le Moulin Fort, please contact us by email.  lemoulinfort@wanadoo.fr
