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.

End of August News

Another summer high season has been and gone!  It has been successful for us, although not the best ever - a cold snap in early August put paid to that!  
Here are some of the photos of the month: 

Big fish and crazy midnight fishermen!

The end of Apple Frost - forever! 
Preparing for a quiz with many familiar faces!  

Barbecue with all the family helping!

A storm brewing in the distance

50 ping-pong balls found on top of the wall in the games room - and a shuttlecock!

1929 Renault outside the Camera Museum

Staff party with cakes

37.5 degrees on 30 August !! 


A very successful Christmas at Le Moulin Fort on 25 August!
Plenty of blue sky and hot air balloons

The September regulars are already on their way and will be treated to music from Yann the Mann; the Starman and his inflatable planetarium; Sarah's Friday morning walks; a quiz and our traditional 'eat-ups' menu from 21 to 24 September as we clear the stocks for the winter. Why not join us. 

School starts again on 4 Sept for most, good luck to teachers and kids alike - October half term is only 7 weeks away!!

Early August already....

The summer seems to be flying by.  The weather has been mixed but plenty of sunny days among the rain showers.  The site hasn't been as busy as in previous years, a little more space for folks to move around...
For anyone planning a visit we WILL have free spaces if you decide not to book and turn up 'on spec', hope to see you soon.  

We have had many successful events throughout July ...

Melanie singing with Bruno
Karting
The Laoh family annual Indonesian Rijst Tafel was a huge success again - thanks Max and Eva.  Especially as Bertrand the STARMAN was able to join us and show us the spectacular night sky, including the ISS - twice! 
Max and his Rijst Tafel

Lots of vegetables!
We are already preparing for August 25th.. book you places now. 

Christmas cake ingredients for Augustmas
Some sad news for cider drinkers.  In their wisdom Kronenbourg have decided to discontinue our draught cider "Apple Frost"!  We are down to our last barrel, there will be no more.....

Bye Bye Apple Frost
Many more events to come throughout August starting with a barbecue and live music on Friday 4th with our friends the Francois LeBlanc Trio.
