Rural camping south-east of Angers on the Loire Valley route
Route de St. Mathurin
Maine-et-Loire, Pays de la Loire
Price from: €10 for a pitch; prices vary for cabins
Open: April to September
Far from bustling roads, Camping de l'Etang sits in a quiet natural lake environment. Interestingly, the owners focus on providing employment for disabled people, making it accessible for everyone. They also take tremendous care to ensure that the communal areas are planted with flowers and well-kept year-round. The site is family friendly, with open-air or covered pools and childminders during the summer months who are fluent in English. A real highlight is its proximity to Angers – a key stop on the Loire valley bike route, which runs concurrently with La Velo Francette along this section (La Velo Francette is just 14km from the campsite). Angers has a stunning catherdral and chateau, home to the Apocalypse Tapestry, a breathtaking work and well worth a day trip. This all makes Camping de l'Etang a good base to relax and enjoy the Loire valley. Part of the Le French Time network of independently run sites.
