Welcome to Elizabeth & Christophe Marchal
Comfortable chalets and wood cabins on an exceptional site in the Loire Valley
This small country campsite lies between Blois, Cheverny and Chambord in the heart of the Loire Valley. Enjoying a quiet, unspoilt location, its unusual wooden rental units are ideal for a short stay or longer holiday and the three neighbouring chateaux – some of the Loire’s most beautiful – are all a bike ride away (10km). In summer, you can also enjoy the clear waters of the Grand Chambord natural bathing lake, purified using a natural biological process (500m). Further afield, the unspoilt woods and lakes of Sologne are ideal for a family walk or cycle ride whatever the season. Nature and culture make a perfect match at the Lodges de Blois Chambord!
