Considering Family Motorhoming In France : Just Don’t Miss Out On the ‘Les Alicourts Resort’ in the Loire Valley!
If you’re new to motorhoming then we’d recommend you head for the Loire Valley and some of France’s most idyllic scenery. But if you’d like a campsite fit for adults and children alike… then look no further than one of France’s most prestigious ‘5 star’ campsites at Les Alicourts in the Loire Valley.
So why would we recommend Les Alicourts in France?
But ‘Les Alicourts’ Holiday Resort really does have something for everyone from impressive swimming lakes, amazing animation team, ‘all ages’ aqua park to beautiful boutique spa and restaurants. It’s no surprise that it makes it into one of the select Leading Campings sites. It really is the perfect place to explore the Loire, apparently one of the top European destinations in 2018 according to this article.
From learning to water ski (on the motorised line), to SUP or kayaking, swimming or fishing… there’s plenty for all abilities. Equally enjoyable for adults & children… it’s probably worth mentioning that you need to be able to cope with swimming to undertake any lake based adventure… But if you fancy finding out about some wider European Adventures we’ve found then here’s a few which might be worth a visit???
Look at those happy smiling faces, do you think we enjoyed it!!!
That said, we’re sure all motorhomers will love the spacious plot sizes, all shaded with mature trees and surrounded by well manicured gardens. It’s just got that feeling of a little luxury that makes any motorhoming/camping holiday that little bit easier!
Some campsites seem to bustle with intent either day or night and Les Alicourts Resort can rightfully declare itself to be one of these. It just seems to have something going on for all ages. The stroll down the central market area at night is as packed as the beach & aqua park is during the day. Perhaps it’s just the infectious enthusiasm of the daily animation activities that seem to operate 24/7…. either way our kids loved it!!
So what about the facilities?
The Loire boasts an extraordinarily mild climate (it was 31°C in early July when we visited) and the crystal clear tropical swimming pools inevitably draws you into spending a lazy day beside the toboggan slides or wave pools…. perhaps even enjoying a quiet drink in the beach-side bar…..
As for meeting fellow campers, well we got really, really lucky!!! For us, it’s not just the places we visit, but the people we meet…. and we struck gold with this fantastic family from Holland. Instantly getting on, it’s seemed like we’ve known them forever. Whilst the kids have enjoyed some wonderful days together (and the adults too!!). Swapping stories, jumping on the water slides together, sharing meals or playing board games in the evening… it’s been a brilliant start to the summer!!!
Just imagine grabbing an early morning croissant from the on-site bakery as you listen to the sounds of laughter from the water slides as you sit beside the lake, letting the waves lap gently against the shore or stand on the jetty watching the fish lazily swimming underneath you….
So what else is there nearby? Lying close to the banks of the Loire Valley, this sprawling holiday resort (both campsite and apartments) is easily close enough to explore Chateau de Chambord, Beauval ZooParc or the impressive vineyards of nearby Sancerre…
But if you like facilities, facilities, facilities, you’ll love taking your family to Les Alicourts Resort! For more details of other things to see and do in Les Alicourts – why not visit https://www.lesalicourts.com/en/ . We hope you love it as much as we all did!!!
