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.

February 2021

 February is already upon us.... The world is still on 'pause' and planning for the future is tricky.  

However....The sun will come out again - the ferries will sail and the drive through the French countryside will become a reality once more.  Until then, you can make bookings at Le Moulin Fort knowing that if things go pear-shaped again you can change you reservation up to 7 days before your expected arrival for no charge, and if you need to move the booking to next year you can... 

Meanwhile....it's been raining!!  

The Cher is rising and the lower bank of the campsite is now underwater.  No where near flood level though.

The chateau is still here....cold and empty!   

They have started work on the bridge at Civray.  They are removing the metal parts (put in place temporarily after WWII!! ) and making it have 2 way traffic and a cycle lane!  It will be closed until January 2022 at the earliest.

A crowd gathered for the 'event'

The centre of the bridge has already been removed

Good progress so far, although the high winds and rising river levels have slowed things down.

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....

jeudi 3 décembre 2020


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.
