Alan Rogers Review

In the region that the Kings of France chose to build their most beautiful residences, this pleasant, shaded site has been developed in the surroundings of an old 800-hectare forest, just 1 km. from the banks of the Loire river. For those seeking a relaxing holiday, it provides 169 pitches, including 111 for touring units, all with 10A electricity (119 Europlugs) and 58 with full services. The friendly family owners continue to develop the site with a multisports court and an attractive swimming pool complex. During July and August, they organise a programme of trips including canoeing and riding excursions, as well as twice weekly concerts and shows.

La Grande Tortue is very well placed for visiting the châteaux of the Loire and the cities of Orléans and Tours. It is located on the long distance ‘Loire à Vélo’ cycle track and this leads from the site to Chaumont, Blois and Chambord, with over 300 km. of marked cycle tracks in the surrounding area. There are several good restaurants close at hand, although the site restaurant is also recommended with a range of good value meals in a pleasant environment.
