Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • This is the perfect base for exploring the nearby chateaux

  • Practise your swing at the 9-hole mini golf course

  • Try your hand at fishing or canoeing here

If you’re planning a trip to Domaine de la Brèche, get ready to step into acres of space and wonderful woodlands that were made to be explored.

But it’s not just the incredible backdrop that will draw you to this parc, you’ll be made to feel welcome and at ease by the friendly parc owner. Try your luck at fishing, river canoeing or pony trekking (perhaps into the spectacular Loire countryside). And the best part? Whatever you plump for, you’ll have acres and acres to do it in! The facilities closer at hand are excellent too, including an impressive pool complex with water slides, a separate pool for youngsters and a superb play area. The attractive bar and restaurant add that all important finishing (and tasty) touch.

    This is one of the bigger parcs I have been to and I am glad we went after the school holidays as it would of been very busy. As for Saumur a lovely town and very good cycle routes, which we enjoyed going into the surrounding villages, and of course the weather helped .

    A truly relaxing holiday! The parc is clean and spacious with little play areas all around. The children's club is well run and the couriers were keen and eager to please, especially the fun club couriers. The shop is poorly stocked and very very expensive so be prepared to travel to Saumur for groceries. We went in August so it was busy and towels went down on the pool sunbeds as soon as it opened. This is frustrating as they were often not used for hours on end. I assume its better outside of August.The pool complex is clean and perfect for kids of all ages. I liked that they have a special (large) splash pool for the tots, which keeps them out of the bigger pools - much safer.
