    Only drove around or through both places but usually on the way back from Spain so cannot help with choice. We did however stay at Camping Acacia which is only 2 or 3 miles outside Tours and I did notice that there was a cycle track alongside the Loire which would probably take you into Tours.

    I stayed at tours for a night when travelling on a school trip, I can highly recommend it as this is where I seen my first naked female up close :Wink:

    This won't help you in the slightest but it brought back some nice memories :Rofl1:

    Greetings,

    I know that in particular circs. this may (or not) be of any use but there's a cracking municipal at Angers.

    It's Camping du Lac du Maine, and as it's name suggests, there a a Lac (sic) glued onto the side of it. When we were there a couple of years ago there was a massive kayaking event going on involving clubs from far and wide. It made for a pleasurable stay.
    As a bonus it takes ACSI @ 16 € with discounts for stays of more than 7 days.:thumb:

    Villandry

    Just south of Tours is the Chateau de Villandry a World Heritage site, if you like gardens, chateau's, rolling countryside it's a great day out. They also provide free overnight parking for motorhomes in the car park.
    Just east of Tours, (just follow the river) is Vouvray, famous for it's white wine, they also provide a small free aire. East again to Amboise wonderful chateau overlooking the river, there is an aire in the town but it's small and we didn't stay. Hope that helps a bit.

    Go Angers and Saumer....:thumb:
    Been a while since we went but I remember a campsite by a lake and an easy cycle to Angers.... Sure others will advise best spots along that stretch.

    Tours is ok but it's a big city..... Did it once to say I have been, now it's just a passing place on route to Spain... :BigGrin:
