Alan Rogers Review

This extensive site is located near the massive forest of Bercé in the Vallée du Loir and is on the shore of the lake from which it takes its name. There are 250 pitches here, with 170 for tourers, all grassy and with electrical connections (10A). Many also have lake views. The site has its own sandy beach (with a beach volleyball court) and canoes are available to rent. In high season, various activities are organised including a club for children and riding. Mobile homes are available for rent. A gate gives free access to the Base de Loisirs which offers a variety of water- and land-based activities. The area is a paradise for walkers and cyclists, with more than 300 km. of tracks through the Forêt de Bercé; the site owners will be pleased to recommend routes.

Nearby are the vineyards of Côteaux de Loir whilst the nearest point on the River Loire is just 50 km. to the south, so visits to some of its famous châteaux are possible.
