“Just as good as last time!”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

This is the second time we've stayed at Chateau des Marais this year, and it doesn't disappoint. Clean and tidy as ever and the accommodation (Horizon Midi) was ideal for our party of 4 (2 adult couples). It really is the perfect place to stay from which to explore the Loire - at least 10 Chateaux are within very easy driving distance, and a good few others are no more than about 3 hours away. Wi-fi is still free in the accommodation (not just in the bar area as others have reported) and the included iPod dock is a welcome inclusion. Tips - if you want peace, go outside school holidays and don't use the on-site shop. The Super-U and Dia (cheaper) supermarkets are both just ten minutes away!

This is the 5th time we have stayed at this site and we seem to go back every year because we love it so much. Our mobile home was fantastic, lovely and clean. The site restaurant which we ate at twice is a must and the kids can play happily whilst they wait for their meal and after too. There is a great Super U about a ten minute drive from the site to stock up as well as a site shop too. The pool complex is great with something for everyone. Blois is a fantastic place to visit and well worth a look. We will most definitely go back to this site again and I would highly recommend anyone pay it a visit.

This was our third stay at Chateau des Marais over the last seven years, the site has grown over the years with additions of a lazy river to the pool complex, new reception, shop and other facilities, it is a lovely big site and perfect for a family holiday. On that basis if you are looking for something traditionally French then you might want something different but if you are looking to find a good facility where the kids can enjoy themselves then I'd not hesitate to recommend this one to you.
Reception staff were great and very helpful when we arrived, the pitch we were allocated was a good size with water and electricity easily accessible, shower block next to our part of the site was neat and clean with plenty of hot water. Its quite a busy site but quietens down nicely by about 10:30pm and entrance is barrier controlled to enforce this.
Family all agreed we will be happy to go back again in the future and look forward to seeing what has been added!

We stayed at Chateau des Marais for a week in mid-August. After comparing prices, we booked a mobile home directly through the campsite's website as we found they were more reasonable than Eurocamp, Keycamp etc. Our 2-bed mobile home - for 5 people - was quite compact but looked new and was very clean. It was quite well equipped though next time I'd want to take some kitchen scissors and a sharp knife with me. We had a nice deck with a table and chairs which helped with the space issue. The mobile home was in a great position, quite close to the pool, bar and restaurant, which was fantastic 99% of the time, less so when the Eurocamp/Keycamp/Canvas (we're not sure which one of them) kids' clubs positioned themselves really close to us and had group singsongs/games in the morning - not the most pleasant of ale-up calls but it was only a minor issue.

The campsite is very well-kept and spotlessly clean. It offers bike and go-kart hire, which are great but seemed slightly pricy (8 euro for 1-hr go-kart rental). There are at least 3 playgrounds, one of which is very conveniently situated next to the restaurant (unfortunately there is also a small arcade-type hut nearby which leads to much pestering...) The pools are fantastic and, again, very clean. They are slightly fresh so I am glad we had sun good weather, otherwise they would have been too cold, particularly for small children. The two waterslides are great and there were never huge queues when we visited, though the pools were quite full pretty much all the time, except first thing in the morning and from 7:00pm. Our children, aged 9 and 5, loved them and wanted to spend all their time getting in and out of the water. Although there was a fair amount of shivering involved, they did have a great time.

One of the best things about the site for us was how quiet it was in the evenings, there was no animation and no noise from the bar/restaurant, which is just what we were looking for. The restaurant was okay, the pizzas from the take-away pretty good. I personally didn't like the fact that the ice cream sold by the scoop was all by Nestlè, rather than freshly-made. It seemed a bit corporate.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly at Reception. When we reported a minor fault with our home, someone was dispatched over to fix it straightaway. The clientele was predominantly British families, with a sizeable minority of Germans, Dutch and French families. It was definitely a family-friendly campsite and felt very safe. I would highly recommend Chateau des Marais and would be more than happy to return.

Had an amazing holiday here with Keycamp in August 2013. The mobile was spotlessly clean and on a big plot. We got a great welcome from the couriers and found them to be very helpful during our stay. The site was perfect for our children aged 5 and 7 with lots of space, various playgrounds and very good pools. They really enjoyed the slides and the lazy river. The bar and restaurant were welcoming and prices were as you would expect on a campsite. The shop was expensive but we went to the SuperU to stock up so only needed to go there occasionally. It was useful to have on site for essentials though. The children loved the activities provided by the Keycamp childrens couriers - so much so that they did not want to leave the site in case they missed anything. We will be back!

We stayed here for five nights before moving further south and loved it. My children (7 and 9) didn't want to leave. They loved the slides and the pool and fishing in the pond. It was very relaxing and by 10pm the site was very quiet. We were blessed with good weather. Had it been cooler then there wouldn't have been much to do around the site and entertainment is very low key. There wasn't any entertainment in te evening but the kids club in the day kept the children happy. Chambord is a five minute drive away and Blois was about 15 minutes. Also great for quiet and flat cycle paths. The toilet block was dated but always clean. Will definitely return! Staff always friendly.

This is a very child friendly site- but best for under 12s- not really suitable for teenagers. The pool was lovely and if you went early in the day you could almost have it to yourselves. The bar and restaurant and play areas are well away from the pitches and mobiles and close relatively early so there is not a great deal of noise at night. The site feels spacious and safe although some parents let their very young children scoot and ride around unsupervised which is hazardous. The whole experience feels very relaxed. We found the Keycamp staff brilliant and very helpful and responsive- especially Paul who could not do enough for us. The funstation was fantastic with great activities which our children loved. They could not wait for the next session!
There was plenty to do in the area with many chateaus within easy reach and Blois, Beaugency, Orleans and Tours within driving distance. All in all a great holiday ( and the weather was good too)
