Le Colombier is a real gem of a campsite, situated in the grounds of a Normandy château, which is home to the owner. Within the attractive, landscaped gardens there is a large, rectangular swimming pool and an impressive former dovecote now houses a cosy bar and library.
There are no mobile homes or chalets here; all 178 pitches are dedicated to touring, most with electricity connections.
They are large and marked out by trees at the corners, but with no dividing hedges. Reception is in a restored building and the staff are efficient and friendly. The site’s main amenities are open all season.

There are many reasons to go camping in France for your summer holiday; sunny beaches, blue seas, magnificent mountains and great food and drink. France also has a fantastic camping culture meaning there are lots of great campsites to choose from, most of which have very high-quality facilities.
From Château d’Anet in the North to Culan in the South, they offer some of the most spectacular architecture in the world. A magnificent illustration of French thought and design, each of the Loire châteaux tells a story of the region.
