Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • Enjoys a peaceful setting in the grounds of an old manor house

  • The kids will go crazy in the lazy river here!

  • Spend a relaxing afternoon in the mini spa

France isn’t short of extravagant châteaux - but, trust us, the royal palace, Château de Chambord (just six miles from your parc) is one of the most opulent and should definitely be on your ‘to see’ list. But, then, your beautifully situated parc is pretty special too.

This authentically French parc is in a superb spot for a short stopover between northern and southern France (located just 10 minutes from the A10 motorway), but with a distinct difference. How often do you get to stay in the grounds of an old manor house? Developed to a very high standard, Le Chåteau des Marais comes with excellent facilities, especially for young families, including a restaurant and supermarket. The superb pool complex has five pools, with a lazy river and a retractable roof over one. There’s even a small spa and Jacuzzi with a Hammam (Turkish bath) and massage available, with a small charge applying.

      We only had one overnight stay at this parc but it was fine. We've noticed how, over the years, the number of parcs in mid/central France available through Eurocamp has diminished. There are no doubt a number of good reasons for this. HOWEVER - please do not reduce the number further. These sites are invaluable, not just as full holiday destinations, but also as overnight stays. Without the latter, accessing parcs further south in France/North Spain/North Italy becomes much more difficult for people from Britain but also Netherlands, Denmark etc. especially when we want to use our own cars to get there.

      Campsite was beautiful, the location of our tent was awful and really wish I had asked to have been moved..

      The parc is well maintained and in a very pleasant setting, very convienient for Chambord and other Chateau in this region of the Loire. The pool facilities are excellent. The parc appears geared to those with young familires, and although quiet when we were there I would imagine it could be quite "noisey" in high season.The restaurant and bar ar ok, but the restaurant in particular is expensive for the quality and choice of food available. Choice in the restaurant was very limited and the stock in the shop deteriorated as we approached the end of our stay as they ran it down for end of season. There are several good places very close by at Chambord to sit and have a relaxed lunch overlooking the Chateau. The number of other places to eat in the immediate area is a bit limited, and the Auberge du Bon Terrior in Muides in particular appeared very expensive.

      Small but pleasant park, on the flat and central to many paces of interest.
