Très beau camping, bien entretenu, à proximité du centre ville et du château. Accueil très chaleureux.
Sanitaires impeccables. Piscine un peu fraiche.

This is a very pleasant campsite within 10 minutes walk of the extremely medieval town of Loches which is definitely worth a visit (excellent market on Saturdays). There is a small supermarket in the town and bigger shops about 20 minutes walk away. The staff were friendly and helpful and generally spoke good English. We found the site to be clean and well maintained when we were there. The pool was fine, if a bit chilly, and we both swam in it. Lots of dog walking in lovely countryside directly from the site and it has a special 'doggie area' too. Pitches are a good sized and level. We thought internet was expensive and so didn't bother with it while we were there.

We hadden een mooie plaats. Maar niet alle plaatsen waren zo. Het sanitair mag wat mij betreft anders. Als je het toilet uitkomt kun je tegen een man aanbotsen die daar het pissoir gebruikt. Terwijl aan de andere kant iemand staat af te wassen.
De wifi was idioot duur.
Het plaatsje waar je te voet naar toe kunt is prachtig en zeer de moeite waard.

Redelijke camping met uitstekend Wifi maar waar wel extra voor betaald moet worden, duur.
Sanitair is redelijk.

Een zeer onverzorgde camping. Entree lag vol met oude bloembakken. Zwembad zat vol met viezigheid en de rest van die gebouwtjes waren ook erg onverzorgd. Het toilet was ook niet geweldig. Je zat buiten in een soort Dixi, als je naar buiten kwam stond er een heer voor het pissoir en aan de achterwand van het toilet, daar kans je de afwas doen. Brrrr.... Wat een stank. WiFi hartstikke duur. Het plaatsje heeft gelukkig veel goed gemaakt. Wonderschoon. Waarom is nog niet alles klaar op een camping. Als je 1 april open gaat, dan moet het klaar zijn.

Twee maal deze camping bezocht. Vriendelijke beheerder. Plek zelf uitzoeken. Sommige plaatsen zijn erg ruim. De comfortplaatsen hebben allemaal stroom, water en afvoer op de plaats. Vlakke plaatsen. Loopafstand naar Loche. Middeleeuwse stadje met mooi kasteel, stadspark ook op loopafstand van de camping is bijzonder goed onderhouden en is zeker de moeite waard om er eens door te lopen. Wie van historie en kastelen houdt, heeft hier een prima uitvalsplek. Brood bij de receptie op bestelling. Supermarkten en andere winkels binnen 5 minuten bereikbaar.

Voor de tweede maal in september 2013 deze camping bezocht. Goed onderhouden camping met mooie plaatsen. Keuze tussen comfort (met kleine bijbetaling op ACSI-kaart) en reguliere campingplaatsen. Loches is een mooie plaats met een rijke geschiedenis. Mooie oude kern op 15 min. loopafstand. Allerlei winkels in de buurt. 2 Supermarkten binnen 10 min. met de auto bereikbaar. Sanitair was prima schoon. Camping ligt vlakbij een prachtig stadspark.

We have been a few times and like the site especially as you can walk along the river into Loches through the park - very good position

Camping heel dicht bij het leuke dorp Loches. De camingplaatsen zijn zeer (!) groot. Rond het zwembad zijn ook spingkussens en een snackbar, 's avonds wel eens muziek. In het hoogseizoen ruimte genoeg op de caming, mochten zelf een plek kiezen. Stonden op een ruim veldje verder van het zwembad waardoor het lekker rustig was. Sanitair wordt te weinig schoon gemaakt.
Positief zijn de grote plaatsen en de tennisbaan naast de camping en de korte loopafstand naar het dorp.

Camping Citadel is a beautiful site in full view of the citadel and we booked in for three days. We decide to go for their new “Gold” pitch. So for this cost we got a large pitch with views of the citadel, a cabin with sink & drainer and electricity, a large picnic table & chairs, two sun loungers, full size parasol, barbecue, water, electricity, waste water drain and free Wi-Fi. We thought the offers was good deal and we intended to enjoy it. We set off to explore the town of Loches and in particular, the citadel. The original fortress dates from the 6th Century and the Keep was taken in a couple of hours after a single attack by Richard the Lion-Heart in 1194. It is also mentioned in the 100 years war with England. A fascinating walled city and we spent several hours exploring the narrow alleyways and shops. We would certainly stay at this site again.
