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.

THE SITE IS OPEN FOR THE 2017 SEASON

Friends and regulars are mixing with people who've never heard of us before! 
"Are you English?"
The weather hasn't been great so far - but we're sure it will get better soon. 
----
We have added a little distraction for your enjoyment : " Mon P'tit Musée " is former employee, Jean-Louis' little museum of cameras, movie cameras, gramophones, radios and photos.  

Located in our 'old shop', it is an interesting place to spend some time marveling at the advances in technology over the past 140 years or so. During the summer he will also be showing slides and videos of the history of the local area - Chenonceaux, Francueil, Chisseaux etc. 


If you have any old camera equipment or associated objects (film for long lost cameras etc.) then please bring them along this summer and contribute to a very impressive collection of artifacts. 


Entry to the museum is free.

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!  


BBQ


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.
