The Owner Says

Une charmante roulotte en bois installée dans ce camping propice à la détente, au cœur de la vallée de la Loire.
Le Gypsy Wagon peut accueillir jusqu'à quatre personnes. Il comprend deux chambres séparées, l'une avec un lit double, l'autre avec des lits superposés. Veuillez noter que le linge de lit n'est pas inclus. Veuillez donc l'apporter avec vous. Une salle de douche séparée et une pièce à vivre avec kitchenette offrent tout le confort de la maison, tout en conservant le charme et le style d'une roulotte tzigane.
Appréciez les repas "en plein air" du petit-déjeuner au cocktail en soirée avec votre propre coin repas extérieur privé.
La Ferme de Prunay offre une multitude d'activités pour les petits et les grands, avec une piscine, un espace bar qui propose des croissants et du pain le matin, ainsi qu'un espace barbecue. Les enfants peuvent apprécier le style de vie «de la ferme» en caressant les animaux, en profitant des sites depuis un tour en tracteur, en explorant les jeux et les activités sur le site.
La région environnante est magnifique avec les célèbres châteaux de la Loire, des itinéraires pittoresques à parcourir à vélo ou savourez quelques-uns des délicieux vins de la Loire.

Activities

There are discount vouchers available on site to get into many tourist locations in the Loir-et-Cher département, including the wonderful chateau at Blois (0033 254 90 33 32) 10 miles (16 km) away, where Joan of Arc was blessed in 1429 before she left with her army to drive the English from Orléans. The Maison de la Magie (0033 254 90 33 33), a spectacular House of Magic museum, is situated across the Place de la Château from the castle and equally merits a visit. The beautiful town of Amboise is well worth the 20-minute drive along the Loire both for its chateau and Le Clos Lucé (0033 247 57 00 73), the house where Leonardo da Vinci lived his final 3 years, which is now a museum displaying models of his amazing drawings. It’s possible to hire canoes to use on the Loire itself, or the rivers Loir and Cher, which feed into it.

Food & Drink

The farm is a member of the regional tourist organisation ‘Bienvenue à la ferme’ and can recommend many local suppliers, listed in a French brochure, including La Cabinette for goats’ cheese in Onzain, 5 miles (8 km) away (which also has the best range of shops locally), or their favourite organic Touraine wine produced at Domaine Château-Gaillard in Mesland, about 2 miles (3 km) from the site. Among the many local markets they recommend those in Amboise on Friday and Sunday mornings on the banks of the Loire. There are many restaurants to choose from in Blois and just about anywhere near the castle is good. Nonetheless, L’Orangerie du Château de Blois (0033 254 78 05 36) really stands out as a special gastronomic treat. In a beautiful building with stunning interiors and a lovely terrace opposite the castle, its menus are from €34.
