- We have been to Le Parc de Fierbois three other times since 2000 so knew what to expect. The park is picturesque and usually quiet when we go towards the end of the season but was the busiest I'd ever seen it when we first arrived this time.
The pools are good though there is the usual lack of loungers but there is a grassed are to lie on as well as a small sandy beach if you choose to go to the lake. The walk round the lake is pleasant and the zip wires and adventure course (costing a small amount) across it were fun for the older kids and more daring adults. The lake is a great place to swim as well.
The small store onsite is well stocked and the pizzeria is OK. We have never tried the restaurant but it always seems to be popular. The bar and shows can be a little noisy in the evening but again is quieter if you go towards the end of the season. All the staff seem genuinely helpful and friendly.
The plots for the holiday homes are a good size with decks, BBQs and outdoor furniture. It is certainly a good base from which to explore the Loire and surrounding countryside. St Maure de Touraine is the closest town with a good supermarket and with Tours, Chinon and Saumur (with the excellent Ackerman Cellars) to explore you won't be stuck for things to do. If you want to travel a little further the Pay du Fou (a bit of a drive!) and the zoo at Doue la Fontaine are well worth the effort.
