Alan Rogers Review

This open, attractive, well cared for site lies on a bank of the Loire with views of the town of Gien and its château. It has a long river frontage, which includes a good expanse of sandy beach. There are 200 good sized, level, grassy pitches with 150 for touring. All have 10A electricity. Some are shaded by mature trees and many have good views over the river. The bar and restaurant, with a pleasant outdoor area, are open to the public and meals are reasonably priced. Soirées with different themes are held weekly in July and August.

A long distance cycle path passes the entrance. This is an excellent base for exploring the eastern end of the Loire valley, and Gien has a festival celebrating the heritage of this part of the Loire at Ascensiontide. The tourist office organises a wide range of activities, both sporting and cultural. There is a regular bus service to Orléans, an ancient city well known for its association with Joan of Arc.
