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.

July

So it is July already!  
However the campsite looks more like early May.  We haven't seen many campers, particularly not any foreigners.  



Although the sunshine always brings people out of the woodwork and we are seeing more reservations from 11 July onwards. 


The pool has been cleaned and is now open. 


The bar / shop area is open and will be open everyday (although only until 7pm on most days).  The restaurant/take-away is open on Friday - Saturday - Sunday (6 - 8.30pm) for the immediate future and we will consider other days if the demand is there.  




We have modified the menu - this is an example. 
We also have pizzas available.


The barbecue and covered seating area available for those in tents at the far end of the site. 

If you are planning a visit to this area of the Loire Valley - then we will have pitches available throught the summer......

OPEN 2020

The site is finally open for the 2020 season!  




The first few customers are enjoyed the sunny evening and lots of green space!  


We have plenty of pitches available throughout the season if you would like to book.  It now looks like quarantine won't be necessary on your return to the UK ☺


All the local attractions will be open as usual from July.  Masks are still necessary in shops and other buildings where distancing isn't possible.  Outside, overlooking the river Cher in the evening sun - mask not needed - only a cold beer or a glass of wine and sunglasses!  

Contact us at lemoulinfort@wanadoo.fr for more information.

Opening




Over 100 people responded to our recent survey so many thanks if that includes you!

It helped us make some decisions based on reason .. rather than emotion!

Over 80% of respondents were Brits aged 50-79 … which does reflect our usual client base, and does of course have a significant impact on the answers given.

Indeed, the most likely reason given for not travelling to France this year was quarantine and travel restrictions, which, as we write, are still in place although subject to considerable debate

Very few respondents indicated a desire to travel to France in June (worried about coronavirus) or in October (family and other commitments)

Our bookings for the season are 74% down on this time last year.

It is therefore a very difficult time for us economically.

We are currently planning to open on 26th June with limited facilities: online booking, payment possible via our website, limited opening hours of reception, wash blocks open and regularly cleaned.

Customers will be asked to maintain social distancing, for their safety as well as that of our staff and other campers.  Masks should be worn as appropriate. We will provide additional cleaning materials in the wash blocks for campers to use at their discretion.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will consider opening the bar/restaurant and pool area during July, depending on the evolution of the pandemic and our bookings.

As long as the situation remains stable, we aim to remain open until 4th October.
