Overview of La Grande Tortue

A 5* resort, Campsite La Grande Tortue is a family-friendly destination situated in the heart of the Loire Valley, between the cities of Tours and Orléans. The relaxing wooded, flower-filled setting of this Pays de la Loire resort ensures holidaymakers can savour a serene stay with the chance to explore the lovely Loir-et-Cher department.

After checking in and unloading luggage, campers can explore the amenities of the resort, including a fantastic swimming pool complex featuring a covered and heated pool, safe paddling areas for little ones, water slides and a splash playground.

For children, the campsite features a brilliant play park that features a rope-climbing frame, zip line, trampolines, swings and a multi-sports field where they can play football and basketball. The entertainment team organises many activities in high season (July and August) such as children's cooking classes, fashion shows and creative workshops. Family friendly activities in the local area include canoeing on the Loire River, horse riding near Blois and donkey hiking.

Dining and shopping options at the resort are very good, with a restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as providing a takeaway option. The restaurant terrace is a nice place to relax with a cocktail, ice cream or sweet snack. Other services onsite include a mini market, snack bar and souvenir shop, as well as bicycle rental and free Wi-Fi.
