“A piece of England in France”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

My partner and I stayed on a riverside pitch at Le Moulin Fort from May 31st to June 2nd 2013.

This was our last stop on a motorhome holiday in France and Italy.

The site is well signposted, very well kept and spacious and airy. The facilities are good with an onsite bar/restaurant (and small shop in peak season) You could also order fresh bread etc for the following morning. The motorhome service point was the best I encountered during our trip!

The location is excellent for visiting Chateau Chenonceaux (30minute walk/5 mins in the car) and the wider Loire region or for relaxed days by the river.

There is a train line about 1/2 mile away that you can hear but the trains were infrequent and did not bother us at all.

The site had mainly English campers and being run by an English couple did loose a little bit of the experience but I think this may be the appeal as a lot of people we spoke to were repeat customers returning year on year. Given the site and the surrounding I can understand this.

All in all a lovely place to finish our holiday!

We found Moulin Fort open just as many of the larger campgrounds were closing down for the season (3rd week of September). Although officially rated three stars this campground easily exceeds this, facilities are very clean and better than most we have visited in the South of France.
The hosts were extremely helpful, the location is perfect for access to towns and Chateau's, and we would recommend this ground to anyone, a very pretty and easy to access location.

Not the easiest of campsites to find but once we found it we loved it. We got a pitch next to the river overlooking the willow trees draped across the river bank and a beatiful stone bridge. The pitch was a decent size, and the campsite was quiet and tidy, with decent facilities, including toilets, hot showers, and washing up area. There was also a small shop next to the reception where we could order fresh croissoints for the following morning. There is a small town about a mile or so from the campsite, which was a typical French village, with beatiful architectiual buildings and one or two restaraunts. There is a small swimming pool by the main house, which has a small bar and restaraunt, however we did not eat there. And ofcourse the chateau just down the river, well worth a visit. The owners at the site were very friendly and welcoming. Would certainly go back, and rated as one of the best campsites we've ever stayed in.

Room Tip: Ask for a pitch by the river

For once this summer's poor weather was to our advantage as it meant we had 6 nights in a prime riverside spot the last week of June.

We had spotted this site in the Cool Camping France book and decided to book in for break as we could explore by bicycle and it was within reach of several chateaux.

The site is easy to find (there is another site on the other side of the river though, so make sure you have the right one) outside high season reception is not open all day but arrived after 4pm so checked in and as site was not full we could choose a pitch. We opted for number 99 right on the river.

What we really liked about this site was riverside location and easy access to bike paths. You can get to Chenonceax in about 10 mins and there are lovely paths by the river. You can also bike up to the small supermarket in Francueil. The site shop is open in high season only. Fresh bread and croisants are available to order at reception (good news as we arrived with no food at all) and there is bar and restaurant open each night except Wednesdays. Food was very good and reasonably priced.Really appreciated this on the evenings when the weather was wet. Also a nice terraced area which was lovely when the weather was good. However, on a warm evening, watching river-life and hot air balloons while BBQ-ing was really relaxing.

Shower blocks were both very clean and well maintained. As the site wasn't full, we didn't have to queue at any point.

Quite a mixture of guests, generally very friendly and relaxed atmosphere at all times. Not too many noisy kids or dogs. The site is supposed to have a silent policy after 11pm, it wasn't enforced but most people respected it or at least kept volumes down.

The owners arrange some events for guests, including walks and quizzes. Probably the only time we will be part of anything "International" and we won!!! Who needs the European Cup?

Any downsides? Slight road noise at times. You are in a rural area so farm vehicles are about plus the main access for boat trips in on the other side of the river. Mosquitoes were a little bit lively one night but generally we found once repellant was applied you were left alone.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would happily return, in fact we owe them a quiz now :o)

We used this site as a stop-over on our way driving to and from Spain. Ideally located mid journey. On our way, the weather was so poor we decided against camping and the owner at Le Moulin Fort helped us to find alternative accomodation. On the return journey we did stay overnight. The facilities are first class. As it's not the season yet we cannot comment on the bar/brasserie, but the general very clean and pretty site would suggest it will be of high quality. The Local area of Chenonceaux and Amboise is very loveley and worth building in an extra day on you journey if passing through, or indeed it will be a nice place to relax for a full holiday.

I have just returned, with my husband, from our 2nd visit in 4 years and once again were very reluctant to go home! We don't have a bad word to say about this beautifully situated, well appointed, clean and friendly site. We would quite happily camp here every year if we didn't enjoy a change of scenery now and again! The owners, Sarah and John, run an excellent site providing a great balance of tranquility and fun. In addition each time we have visited we have enjoyed getting to know the bar, restaurant and reception staff. Sarah and John seem to have a knack of employing the kind of staff who really enhance the holiday. We highly recommend this site to anyone and don't think we'll be leaving it another three years before returning! ("Jo" and Sam xx)

We've just returned from a two week camping holiday and used Camping Le Moulin Fort as an overnight stop for our outward and return trips. We will not be returning. Although it's in a fairly nice location, the campsite was too crowded for our taste and it didn't feel particularly welcoming. There was Sky TV in the bar and I suppose the place would be perfect for anyone seeking a few days of lager and fishing. We were after something slightly more....French. We also left the campsite feeling as though we'd been ripped-off because we ended up paying for a BBQ twice. This was because of poor administration on their part rather than anything more deliberate, but it would have been nice if we'd been given the benefit of the doubt when we raised the matter with them at the time.
