L’etang De La Breche Holiday Park

The Loire valley is famous for many things, including it’s many château and there are four famous ones within easy reach of L’Etang de la Breche. This medium-sized park is set in spacious grounds giving children lots of space to explore. If you’re looking for a holiday where the kids will enjoy being left to roam then this is the place for you. On site there is a friendly efficient reception (English is spoken here as well) and L’Etang de La Breche is pleased to welcome dogs if they are kept on a leash. The site has a wide variety of facilities including laundry and dryers which are housed in pretty stone buildings around a central courtyard.

The park is a relatively small park with 201 pitches and if you are travelling with friends and family the site are happy to book neighbouring pitches for you. There is a great selection of accommodation on offer. You only have to decide what’s best for you.

You can stay under canvass in tents that have brand new canvass interiors and exteriors for 2012. They are either two or three bedrooms and had a separate kitchen and living space. You also have a barbecue and patio furniture which means that self-catering will be a breeze. You can also open the walls of your tents up completely which means you’ve got a great way of bringing the countryside into your tent.

There are three types of chalets with either two or three bedrooms. All come with a shower and toilet and a living/kitchen area that has all the mod cons you need to cook for the family. You can also book a chalet with outside decking and patio furniture which, along with the barbecue that’s provided means family meals to remember.

Facilities & Activities at L’etang De La Breche

The on-site animation team will organise children’s discos between 8th July and 24th August and there are four safe, kiddie friendly playgrounds. There is also a kids club called Fun Station where morning, afternoon and evening activities such as Pirate Mayhem and Superhero Training are organised to give the kids a great time and Mum and Dad some quality down time.

The site features an excellent local style restaurant with a welcome children’s menu for those less sophisticated taste buds. There is also a take away serving all usual suspects and along with the on-site mini-market feeding arrangements couldn’t be easier. The small traditional bar, located next to restaurant is perfect for late afternoon and early evening refresher and you should also look out for the children’s discos. Discos.

There are four lovely swimming pools at L’Etang de la Breche. They are all outdoors and heated and one is covered which means swimming is on, all day and every day. The pools are in a variety of sizes and depths with a selection of water fountains, slides, chutes and water mushrooms. Outdoor sports that include tennis, volleyball and football with on-site arranged boules tournaments are also on hand. There is also fresh water fishing but only between 13th May and 11th September.

If you want to get to know the glorious Loire countryside consider cycle hire. The local medieval town of Tours with its winding cobbled streets, market cafes and shops is well worth a visit. Local attractions are wide and varied and include Futuroscope, a theme park of the moving image which is hugely popular. You might want to visit Chateau d’Usse which is the inspiration for the story of Sleeping Beauty, it’s a picture perfect location and worth visiting.

    The surrounding area is amazing, make sure you explore all the castles. The onsite pool is great if a little on the small side for the size of the camp, on mild days the pool is heated so you can still go in if you’re brave enough.

    The camp is very well maintained and the kids will have lots of things to do onsite, we never saw ours.
