The Loire valley is deservedly popular with British tourists. Easy to reach by
car from the UK, yet offering a real taste of France. A camping holiday in the Loire
means lazy days relaxing in shaded woodland in campsites with excellent amenities
after some sight-seeing visiting the historic chateaux for which the Loire is famous.
Most towns have their own chateau, the most well-known being Blois, Saumur, Angers,
where there is also an amazing medieval tapestry, Chinon and Amboise. In addition
be sure to take in the Chateaux of Azay-le-Rideau, which offers a spectacular son
et lumiere show, and Chenonceau, perhaps the most beautiful of all and created largely
by a series of aristocratic women.
A camping holiday in the Loire also gives you the opportunity to explore the
pastoral countryside, through which flows not only the Loire itself but also the
Indre. These rivers are often bordered by small roads and paths where cycling and

there are plenty of safe swimming places.
The Loire is also a producer of some excellent wines, and many of the vineyards
