Alan Rogers Review

A pleasant, well maintained site, la Citadelle’s best feature is probably that it is within walking distance of Loches, noted for its perfect architecture and its glorious history, yet at the same time the site has a rural atmosphere. The 102 standard touring pitches are all level, of a good size and have 10A electricity. Numerous trees offer varying degrees of shade. The 27 larger serviced pitches have 16A electricity but little shade, a further six luxury pitches have all facilities including furniture, fridge and barbecue. Mobile homes (28 for hire) occupy the other 48 pitches. Loches with its château and dungeons is a gentle 500 m. walk along the river.

A free bus/little train runs from the campsite to the centre of Loches during the summer. An excellent spa centre and the municipal tennis courts are adjacent to the site and there are many activities organised during July and August. Eleven overnight pitches are available so that campers are not disturbed.


Three sanitary blocks provide mainly British style WCs, washbasins (mostly in cabins) and controllable showers. Laundry facilities. Motorhome services. Two baby units and provision for disabled visitors. Heated swimming pool (May-Sept). Paddling pool and play area (adult supervision strongly recommended). Small bar and snack bar (July/Aug; bread can be ordered at reception). Boules. Volleyball. Games room. Miniclub (July/Aug). Internet access and TV. WiFi over site (charged).
