La Grande Tortue Holiday Park
Deep in the heart of the Loire valley, the region that is more French than France itself, you’ll find La Grande Tortue camp site. If you are looking for a family getaway that’s perfect as a base for exploring the region then you’ve found it. Set in amongst pretty trees this small park is ideal if you have small family. The park has a friendly reception where they speak English (as well as Dutch and Spanish if you fancy a try) and they’re happy to welcome your dogs here (just keep them on a lead please). To keep your suitcase numbers to the minimum there is laundry and drying facilities and there is a shop for all your holiday emergencies such as sun screen and sarongs. There are disabled facilities as well and you’ll probably want to find out more about them before making your booking.
There are only 169 pitches here and some of them are quite large, being bigger than 100m2. You can stay under canvass at La Grande Tortue.
