Alan Rogers Review

Camping la Poterie is situated on a bank of the River Loire and is bordered by forests and open fields. This site is very much for those looking for ‘back to basics’ camping, well placed for visiting the châteaux of the Loire and the cities of Tours and Orléans. There are just 35 small touring pitches (70 sq.m) on level, sandy ground, separated by hedges, some with shade. Around half have electric hook-up (10A), and there are a limited number of water points. It is on the long-distance Loire à Vélo cycle track, which comprises some 300 km. of marked routes. There are also opportunities for fishing in the Loire. English is spoken.


One heated toilet block by reception and within easy reach of all pitches has clean, adequate provision, but might be stretched in peak season. Open-style washbasins with hot water. No facilities for babies or disabled visitors. Washing machine and dryer (coin operated). Dishwashing outside under cover. No shop but fresh bread daily (high season). Play area. Fishing. Boat launching. River beach. Bicycle hire. Free WiFi over part of site. Gas and electric barbecues only. A number of mobile and tents are available for hire.
