Alan Rogers Review

La Borde is located in the less well known eastern stretch of the Loire valley, close to the picturesque château town of Gien. Please note that there are no touring pitches here. However, an excellent range of accommodation is on offer, including tree houses, tepees, cosy Romany style caravans and a wooden cabin overlooking an attractive pond. The wellness centre offers free access to a relaxation lounge, sauna and hot tub. Various massage and beauty treatments are also available. Other facilities include a small petting zoo, giant wooden games, an organic shop and coffee shop. Campfire meals and lunch baskets are also available to order.

Only the grass around the roulottes is cut, leaving the remaining areas as a haven for insects and birds. Lights go out at 10 p.m. so that you can see the stars. Reception and facilities are in parts of the converted farmhouses. Close to La Borde is the medieval project at Guédelon, where a castle is being rebuilt in an old quarry, using materials and techniques which replicate those used in the 13th century. Alternatively, you can explore the vineyards of Sancerre, Chablis, and Pouilly Fumé and sample the many local cheeses, including the famous goat’s cheese Crottin de Chavignol.


Three superior en-suite shower rooms are available for those in the five units without these facilities. Shop selling organic produce including cheeses and wine. Breakfasts and set meals available to take to your unit or eat in a specially-equipped cabin. Launderette. Mini dishwasher. Giant traditional wooden games. Trampoline. Pétanque. Sauna and hot tub. Massages available. Petting zoo. Bicycle and electric cycle hire. Free WiFi in reception.
