Paradise in France

Review of La Ferme de Prunay

Oct 17, 2013, by Melissa

We are very frequent campers in France, we've been camping there for over 12 years, making at least three or four visits per year, and we've checked out most regions. We have two children who are now 12 & 9. We first discovered the Ferme de Prunay by chance, in 2005 when we were visiting the castles in the Loire Valley . I have to say it is the best ever find. If you want nightclubs until 2am, karaoké and beer drinkers - then stay away!

This is a gorgeous family campsite, and the family owners are just gorgeous too. They will go over and beyond to keep their visitors happy. The site is clean and has brand spanking new showers, toilets and kitchen area. The pitches are huge, really huge, even for French 'camping à la ferme' standards, the pool is fabulous for the kids and the activities offered by the family are enough to keep any budding young farmers happy - bread making, tractor rides, visits to feed the animals, goats cheese farm visits, horse rides, camp fires : the list goes on and on and on.. We now visit the Ferme de Prunay on every single camping trip to France, for AT LEAST two nights in order to keep the peace during our family vacation, otherwise we are questioned constantly by our kids as to when we'll be going. But it’s not hard going for us parents either. It has the most natural, calm, safe & easy going feeling when you are there, in such a beautiful area of France, so handy for the gorgeous wine and castles. I cannot recommend this campsite enough, 5 stars don’t do it justice!
