We spent 10 days here, in not so great weather, but it was a very pleasant place to stay. The staff were very nice - it seemed to be family run. The facilities were lovely. The water features, while not as impressive looking as at other Castles campsites, were perfect for our 5 and 7 year old - i can imagine when it is busy you'd need to queue for the slides, but it was relatively quiet when we stayed there due to the bad weather. They kids enjoyed the pony riding lessons at the site. We booked direct with the site and got a very clean very nice mobile home - way better site and location than the mobiles that were rented out by the campint holiday tour groups (don't want to mention any names!) Lovely campsite, but we couldn't find our bearings in Saumur - while it is a city/town it lacked the touristy element that we needed, as a family with young kids. Maybe for a couple it would have been a good city, but it lacked the buzz that we have found in Carnac, Brittany. Eating out wasn't easy as we couldn't find anywhere nearby.. anywhere at all! except for the seasonal restaurant opened by the campsite which was very nice, but we would have liked some other options within walking distance. We will definitely go back here if travelling through the Loire again.
