Camping Au Coeur de Vendome, 41100 Vendome, Tel 0254770027

To Find Site:- From north or south on the A10 and turn into Rue du Dr Faton , signed to Centre Ville and campsite. After about 400mts turn left into Rue Ceasar de Vendome. At end of road turn left into Rue Geoffroy Mantel and the campsite is at the end of this road just past the swimming pool.

The campsite is just on the edge of the town of Vendome. It is set in park like surroundings with mature trees and one edge of the site is alongside the River Loir.  This site has a longer season than many in France and is open until around the end of October. All pitches are on grass and are reasonably level. They are marked out by lines where the grass seems to have had weed killer applied to create the dividing lines! The grass was still in good condition and the ground quite firm. Satellite television could be difficult because of the tress but there are more open pitches. The reception and toilet block divide the campsite with the main touring area being to the right of reception nearer to the river. To the left of the reception there are still some touring pitches but most of the space is occupied by mobile homes to rent. Electric points, rated at a useful 10 amps, are convenient to pitches and use CEE17 blue connectors. Unfortunately the system does not seem very robust as we had a power outrage during the night due to a thunder storm and it had not been restored by the time we left at 9.00am the following morning! There are a series of water points down the centre of the touring area. The toilet block is centrally situated although access is via steps on one side or a slight  incline on the other so giving access to anyone in a wheelchair. The toilet block is perfectly serviceable although not the most modern. There are pedestal seated toilets. Whilst each cubicle has a toilet paper dispenser they were all empty during our out of season stay. The lights and hot water are not available overnight, and not particularly well lit during dark evenings, not sure if this is just and out of season thing or during the entire opening season which could make it difficult for tent campers without their own facilities? We suffered very heavy rain during our stay and I noticed the floor of the block got very wet. There is a motorhome service point at the back of the site with reasonable access. The site does have WiFi but it seems not complete coverage. It is chargeable and cheaper to buy from the reception rather than online. This campsite accepts the ACSI Card in the low season. The N10 main road skirts the end of the site so there is some road noise. I am sure that in nice weather this is a lovely campsite and we unfortunately did not see it at its best because of two days of heavy rain.

The town of Vendome is just a short walk from the campsite. There is a swimming pool immediately outside the campsite and campers can make use of it. Several supermarkets are represented in Vendome.
