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.

3 June 2020

You may have heard that campsites in France can open from 2 June 2020 with the "necessary protective measures" in place. Unfortunately, these meassure have yet to be confirmed.  The international borders are still closed, with mixed reports of their opening dates and social distancing is still recommended, we won't be opening the campsite until we are able to ensure our safety, and that of our campers and staff . 
We thank you for your understanding.  
We will update this page when we have further information. 


In the meantime we have been doing our own 'springwatch' on the site and at out house.  Hope you enjoy the following:

May 2020

We are just starting the difficult task of coming out of 'confinement or lockdown'.  Primary schools have returned this week and secondary schools will start in some form or another from May 18th (Melanie included).  Very strict hygene measures and social distancing will apply - it won't be school as we remember it. 
Other tourist attractions are opening slowly throughout the country, some beaches will open again soon and the ZooParc de Beauval will open on 2 June. 


The opening of the campsite for the 2020 season is still 'on hold', we are awaiting official instructions but they can't agree on when or how it should happen.  It is understandable - there are no precedents to follow, and they will never be able to please everyone!  


We are trying to keep the grass cut and the house tidy but nothing more as we wait further details of what we can or can't do!  

We had a succesful "non-opening Zoom session" on Friday 8 May, over 40 couples joined us from 4 European countries and we all enjoyed chatting in the various 'breakout rooms'.  We only lost a few people in cyberspace!!  

We intend to have another Zoom evening on May 22nd, we will send out the link and post it on Facebook.  Depending on how long we stay closed...there may be more!  



Look after yourselves, stay alert (!) and hopefully scenes like this aren't too far away!!

Spring 2020




We are living in very strange and challenging times.  The bulk of the world’s population is affected in some way by the Covid-19 pandemic.  Isolation and uncertainty are now commonplace.  

At Le Moulin Fort it is no different, and we face the same challenges as everyone else.  We have been in ‘lockdown’ since March 16th; schools and universities are closed (and the students have all returned home…!); we can only venture out for specific reasons and need to have the appropriate paperwork to do so; most places to go to have closed – even Bricomarché!  The road to the campsite is now only passable by us (residents) and not open for walking or cycling....



We are preparing as much as we dare, unsure if or when we will be opening for the 2020 season.  Rest assured that we will open in some format as soon as we are permitted. It will be a different season to previous ones at Le Moulin Fort, that much is certain.  Hopefully we will be able to meet old friends again sometime in the future.  


We will keep in touch with you all via Facebook if there is any news.  

Stay home and stay safe.
