|The romantic Loire Valley lies in France’s heart, just south of Paris yet still wonderfully accessible for the beaches of the Vendée and Loire Atlantique on the Loire coast. The Loire River, France’s longest, meanders through its verdant, vine-covered hills dotted with fairy-tale castles. To boot, it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And to uncover all its secrets, where better to stay than Siblu’s holiday park, Le Domaine de Dugny, ideally situated between Blois, Le Mans and Tours.
The Loire Valley’s stunning scenery and gentle climate will keep family members and friends happily amused outdoors for hours. From fishing to canoeing, get a taste for river activities, all easily accessible from the Domaine de Dugny campsite.
A trip to the Loire Valley is not complete without visiting the best of the region’s splendid châteaux, which each have something different to offer. Enjoy the gardens, maze and tearooms at stunning Chenonceau; take a carriage ride around the grounds of extravagant Chambord; or marvel at Cheverny's famously impressive interiors.
