Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • Discover the medieval old town of Tours with its many bars and restaurants

  • Hire bikes and head off on a châteaux tour

  • Let the kids loose at the skate parc

Mix the great outdoors with great entertainment and you’ll conjure up Le Parc de Fierbois.

During the day, take a few laps around the parc’s very own lake, which offers great views of the surrounding French countryside. Or maybe you’ve got a taste for culture that won’t be satisfied until you’ve ticked those châteaux off your sightseeing list? You’ll also be close to the town of Tours, which is great for your very own tour, too. When real family fun is in order, come back to this ‘Castel’ parc and you’ll find tons of high season activities, from team sports to evening entertainment. There’s a stage in the large bar area and here you’ll find themed nights including talent shows and quizzes, whilst the central square plays host to all your daytime fun. When its time to make a splash, head to the 3-pool complex and see the kids whizz down all 5 waterslides.

    We have travelled with Eurocamp for a number of years. Out of all the parcs that we have stayed this is most disapointing. The parc fault old and rundown in parts. The onsite cafe / bar was disapointing - having not drinks when we tried order.

    This park was just a stop over each way. However I was very glad it wasn't our main base as compared to our other site it was very disappointing. It felt very uninvested in, slightly shabby in parts. No kids club etc.

    Lovely relaxed, quiet campsite with good facilities. Surrounded by countryside ideal for cycling due to landscape. Great pool with slides but never enough sunbeds.
