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.

jeudi 6 août 2020

Early August

The temperatures are rising and the sun is out.  
We are seeing a few more people coming and going - although no where near as many as usual.  We still haven't reached out self-imposed 75% capacity limit!! So we still have pitches available for every night of the summer. 

There are still balloons overhead!  
Information for drivers of high vehicles - BOTH bridges crossing the Cher at St Georges and Civray are now height limited to 2m30.  The only way across is via the Pont de Chisseaux (D80) or in Montrichard or via the Bléré by-pass. 

We have just found out that the water in the river is not safe for swimming due to the high algae content.  This is a result of low rainfall over the winter, high temperatures earlier in the year which led to a build up of algae.  The current high temps (35 degrees on Thursday 6 August) have exacerbated the situation.

20 July 2020

July marches on and the sun is still shining.  All our customers are enjoying the bonus of more space as there are so few of them!!  


Balloons have been low flying over the site morning and evening for the past 2 weeks.  We never get tired of the spectacle!  


From today this kind of face mask is obligatory in all French buildings - museums, castles, shops, supermarkets etc. etc. 
On the site they are required in the bar and reception and as you enter and leave the washblock (you can take it off to clean your teeth!)

This kind of face mask is not obligatory

We still have plenty of pitches available throughout the summer - although the riverside pitches are always reserved first.  
In order to preserve social distancing we will stop short of filling the site to its maximum capacity. 

samedi 11 juillet 2020

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......

Meanwhile Sarah has been very busy with her online Coaching.

What will you gain?

Learn how to ask David Grove’s clean questions to develop your own ideas and those of others.

Unpack your own models for processes such as decision-making, time-management and learning at your best’ – and discover the unconscious patterns you live by.

Identify when you are / are not in a good state for learning & creativity.

Detect the judgments you make about others, separate these from actual behaviours and use this information to master the art of Clean Feedback.

Become more aware of what needs to happen for you to stay in a good learning state - and what compromises you may have to make to ensure others can stay in theirs.

Design your own developmental tasks - tiny actions that can make a big difference as you step outside your comfort zone a little.

Find out what happens as people’s patterns emerge and when their values are compromised – this is when the tools really come into their own.

Learn what triggers you to go into drama, what drama position(s) you tend to take - and how you can use this information to recognise what’s important to you.

Learn how to use the Clean Change Cycle (outcome, action, feedback) to coach someone off the Drama Triangle.

Gain multiple ideas for facilitating others, whether you work with individuals or teams.

Learn how this methodology has been used in business, education, health and community setting
