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.

Early August already....

The summer seems to be flying by.  The weather has been mixed but plenty of sunny days among the rain showers.  The site hasn't been as busy as in previous years, a little more space for folks to move around...
For anyone planning a visit we WILL have free spaces if you decide not to book and turn up 'on spec', hope to see you soon.  

We have had many successful events throughout July ...

The Laoh family annual Indonesian Rijst Tafel was a huge success again - thanks Max and Eva.  Especially as Bertrand the STARMAN was able to join us and show us the spectacular night sky, including the ISS - twice!

Some sad news for cider drinkers.  In their wisdom Kronenbourg have decided to discontinue our draught cider "Apple Frost"!  We are down to our last barrel, there will be no more.....

Bye Bye Apple Frost
Many more events to come throughout August starting with a barbecue and live music on Friday 4th with our friends the Francois LeBlanc Trio.

June News


June has whizzed by and there are only 2 weeks left until the end of the French school year - and the start of 8 weeks holidays!  
We've had some excellent weather and some extremely hot weather - 38 degrees C for 3 days last week. 


We have been entertained by balloons as always and by Manu, Nathan and Clelia along with a barbecue.  


Jean-Louis' museum has had a steady flow of visitors from the site and the local villages, but he has had time to finish re-painting the mini-golf. 

The trucks were missing from Francueil's "Fete de la Saint Jean" this year, but they will re-appear nearby (Thenay) at the end of July as part of a bigger vehicle festival. 

UPCOMING EVENTS:
At the end of this week Georges Paltrié and Jean return to the site for an evening of Paella and jazz music.  
Next week we will celebrate American Independence Day on Tuesday with a "Hot Dogs and Hamburgers" menu followed by a US themed quiz.  
On Saturday 8th July we will be turning Irish with dancing lessons in the morning and an Irish themed meal with music from 'Paddy and Murphy' in the evening.
