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.

Mid March News

Another crazy month at Le Moulin Fort.  As soon as we get that Spring feeling, we leap into action.  Painting, mowing, cleaning, sorting etc.  We have a couple of interesting projects in hand … watch this space for more info! 

In the meantime, Gregory has discovered that the headlights on the mower work pretty well, and was mowing until 9pm last night!  And lucky he did, as we’ve had torrential rain today.  April Showers start early in France!  


John flew back to the UK last week to attend Tony’s funeral.  It was a fitting tribute to a lovely man, and nice to see so many campers present to pay their respects and support Stella and their family.  

Sarah has been teaching again – and busy re-arranging her coaching and training activities to fit around this new routine.  Danielle is preparing for her forthcoming stay in Germany and her class is coming under a lot of pressure from school to complete the school year three months early.  It’s quite a punishing schedule for a 15 year old. With that in mind, we’re glad that we’ve got a short break planned to have a bit of family time together…

We've added a couple more music acts for the summer starting with Georges during the Whit Week and a couple of quizzes, including Paul's Quiz Winners Quiz in early July.   See our entertainment page for full details.

March news

Spring is well on its way .... and we are busy preparing. However, 

we’ve recently had some sad news about one of our regular campers and good friends.  Tony Willetts passed away last month, rather unexpectedly after heart surgery.  Our thoughts are with Stella and his family.  We will miss him greatly around and about on the campsite this summer xxx

February 2017

First signs of Spring – snowdrops and birds singing when we take Danielle to the station in the morning. 

We took advantage of the mild weather and spent an afternoon at Clos Lucé, which is always well worth a visit.   

John and Gregory continue to plough on with jobs on the campsite with the next big project being the reconstruction of the pool pump shelters which were badly damaged in last year’s floods.  

New receptionist? 
Our 2017 team is complete (Eric the cat is still in training!), and bookings continue to come in daily which is all good news.  

The date of the Fete de la St Jean in Francueil village has been changed - now Saturday 24 June. 

Sarah has launched her NLP training programme and will be holding some drop-in sessions on the campsite this summer. Look at her website www.sarahscarrattcoaching.com for more information and please let us know if there are any specific topics which interest you!
