I tried to make a presentation for different styles of stays, + or - idle, + or - independent, + or - participative, it's as you wish.
Possibility of breakfast (€3 / person)
Family proposal of type "French breakfast": coffee, tea, milk, chocolate, bread or toast, butter, jam, orange juice, pastries if possible. You come in a very natural place, far from everything! That's what makes it so charming! so the pastries, it's possible, indeed! but you will understand, I'm sure.
For a tent loan, as for the camping shower or the bikes, it is necessary to inform me by confirmation of the reservation, at least 3 days in advance. Thank you for your understanding
I have two 3-person tents that I can put at your disposal. For the rental of this equipment, please tick off an extra person (over or equal to 13 years old) when you make your reservation (3 people if you come with 2; 4 people if you come with 3 etc...) There is also the possibility to lend an inflatable mattress, an insulating foam, a small camping table or 2 folding camping chairs. You will find the tent set up when you arrive, in order to prevent any risk of unfortunate handling of the material, which could cause damage.

We booked at the last moment in the middle of All Saints' Day, and despite everything Claudine was able to welcome us as it should be.
Wake up at the top with the horse coming to say hello !
Reservation made at the last minute given the weather of the weekend.
We were very well received. The summer the site must be a real little paradise. Maybe one day . thank you
Claudine received us in extremis in a very quiet place, and super well equipped,
we spent an excellent and pleasant night. The cat also welcomed us very warmly, very nice environment, thank you!
Short but excellent stay on Claudine's land.
On the spot all the basic necessities, shower, sanitary, fridge, electric current available for a moderate use (charge of the portable for example).
Very nice welcome and discussions.
Thank you to Claudine for the welcome during our first home camping, it was a beautiful experience to renew in a beautiful corner of nature. Good continuation to you
Old farm where we spent a short but pleasant stay.
Everything is present for a comfortable stay in a beautiful setting!
We were satisfied
We spent an excellent night at Claudine's, very relaxing place, if we come back in the region, we will come back without hesitation. Welcome, breakfast, everything was perfect.
We were very well received by Henry and Claudine. Discovery of the region which was a discovery for us.the laptop and full of photos of the village of montresor. A very nice place for us to stay.
This was our first home camping experience with my husband and our two boys. It was quite exceptional. Claudine, Henri and their little girl are extremely welcoming and warm. They did everything to make us feel comfortable. A very nice meeting. The place in the middle of the countryside is very beautiful, soothing and invigorating. Getting up in the morning, seeing the sunrise over the water with the frogs, Pouchka, Claudine's mare and Ninouche, a very sociable and affectionate little cat, is a real pleasure. The terrain is perfect for our very large tent. The summer kitchen is very practical and we shared pleasant moments in all simplicity. We will come back, for sure. First of all for the pleasure of finding this beautiful family but also to continue to visit the region. The stay was too short!!!
In the middle of the countryside, quiet, near Loche and Montrésor. Good welcome and restful sleep! Thank you
A very nice first experience at Claudine and Henri! A magnificent setting and very welcoming hosts.
We will keep the address and hope to meet again at our place ????
A natural and smiling welcome for a night in the heart of a beautiful countryside. A stopover to recommend !
We spent a very good Week end. Warm and welcoming hosts, charming place. Forest of Loches accessible by bike with a small step on the road (few vehicles).
Very nice location to discover the south of Touraine and warm welcome.
We were very well received by Claudine in her pleasant garden. The main amenities are available independently and Claudine is very accommodating. In view of the bad weather she was ready to lend us her caravan and mattresses. She knows how to be both available and discreet. We got to know her adorable cat and her beautiful horse. The surroundings (Loches, forest, villages) are superb. To be redone.
A very nice first experience of gamping in family at Claudine's place. Claudine's welcome was perfect with nice little touches (advice in the surroundings, installation of swings for the children, provision of a stove because we had a problem with ours,...). The site is very beautiful and quiet, the ground is flat and the sanitary facilities are impeccable. I strongly recommend it.
Great place for a quiet country break before the ZooParc de Beauval!
The stay was short, but in this short time Claudine was a very pleasant and available host. The place where we pitched our tent is a real haven of peace for people in search of calm and greenery. We will be happy to return for another discovery of this beautiful region
We spent a night with our family at Claudine's house in order to be able to go to the Beauval zoo very early the next day. The setting is great and the place is very quiet. Claudine had even prepared a small itinerary for us to get to the zoo more quickly (which was very useful). If one day we have to return to the region we will return without hesitation.
It was a joy to be Claudine's first gamers. We appreciated the availability of the amenities for our overnight stay. The place, secluded, allows calm and tranquility. The friendly presence of the horse adds to this serenity. Claudine took the time to share with us a moment of conviviality around a coffee. We recommend this very pleasant stop.
