The castles of the Loire Valley are close to Petit Trianon campsite
Visit the Loire Valley Castles during your camping holidays
On the borders of the Tourraine and Poitou regions, or more precisely the Indre et Loire and Vienne, Camping Le Petit Trianon is very well placed to visit the exceptionally rich heritage of the Loire Valley Castles, a mecca of the French Renaissance. As such, several of these remarkable buildings are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. From the campsite, you will be able to reach some of these majestic sites in less than an hour by car, which will dazzle you both by their beauty and the many historical episodes that took place there. But the castles of the Loire Valley are not just that! Some of them were powerful fortresses, often alternately French or English, whose walls had to endure the terrible sieges of the 100 Years War. Finally, Chinon and Poitiers witnessed the incredible story of Joan of Arc, the 17/18 year old girl who was to take the head of the Royal Army to “Bouter l’Anglois hors de France”!
So during your stay, don’t miss to visit the royal fortresses of Chinon or Loches which will remind you of this episode in the history of France. Discover also the majestic gardens which make the reputation of the region of Tours such as Villandry or Le Rivau. Make a detour to the castle of Ussé which inspired Charles Perrault for his “Sleeping Beauty”.
As a family or as a couple, from the Petit Trianon campsite visit these remarkable places while enjoying the conviviality, tranquility and comfort that our campsite can offer you.
