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.

January 2021

The New Year is upon us and signs of a 'good' year have already been dashed.  Although positives need to be found every day and we are all still healthy as are all of our family.  We were able to 'meet' several friends on New Year's Eve via Zoom.  

Janus looks back at the past year and forward to the next.  We encourage you to look back at what ypu've learnt from 2020 and look forward to making the most of 2021 - whatever it may bring. 

Hopefully it will allow you to look at this river again....

It is December already....2020 will soon be over!  Although daily life is still overshadowed by the coronavirus and its effects.  France has eased its restrictions recently (we can now travel 20kms for exercise but still can't meet anyone else!), but travel to the UK is not possible, so we are planning Christmas here.  

We have been doing what we can with the uncertainty of next year: 

We have collected our kiwis - only 600 this year!  

We have been clearing leaves from the site - 'helped' by the girls....

Needless to say we have plenty of pitches available for next year, so if you are thinking of visiting at any point between 1 May and 3 October, please get in touch by email: lemoulinfort@wanadoo.fr 

All the best with your Christmas planning.

As the world is in another state of lockdown - although it  varies extremely from one country to another - not much has been happening at LMF.  

Normally October half-term is when we visit friends and relatives in the UK - not so much this year.  We also start making plans for Christmas - not so much either....  

So we find ourselves stranded at home.  Sarah is extremely busy with her coaching and training - obviously all online.  Check out her website www.sarahscarrattcoaching.com or her LinkdIn and Facebook pages for details.  Rebecca is in Denmark, Danielle 'doing University from home' and Melanie going to school (but not as school should be!). 

The campsite still looks attractive in the autumn colours: 

They have just taken out the 'needles' from the barrage and the Cher is now much quieter than it is in the summer.  

Barrage de Chisseaux

We also had our own Autumn-Watch and rescued a Blue-tit that had got trapped in the wood shed!  

If you would like to look forward to something in 2021 - The Tour de France route has recently been released and it will be going from Tours to Chateauroux on 1 July via Amboise - Chenonceaux - Montrichard.
