Thee is a really nice municipal site at Chaumont Sur Loire (about an hour West of Blois) Huge grass site, plenty of shade if you want it, no marked out pitches, loads of room and itís a few minutes walk into the village and the delightful Chateau.
Itís one of the few locations where there is a bridge over the river. Just the other side to the campsite there is a cafe at the Gare, they do a really good value delicious lunchtime menu! And itís walking distance.
This site is a ďmust doĒ for us if we are in the area. Brilliant Cave just down the road at Rilly. I could go on but I am sure you get the idea.
If lucky you will see hot air balloons, they launch just downstream (west of) fthe bridge on the opposite (north) bank early morning or evening time (they are EXPENSIVE, Iíve looked!)
Google earth will show you the area. (Campsite is JUST east of the bridge on the south.
Its not the destination that matters.
It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
