Wine is an emblematic French product and provides all sorts of pleasures: tasting, visits to wine estates and cellars, even hikes around the vineyards.
The best Burgundy wines are divided into 84 designated areas, each with its own aromas. Actually, the ‘Climates’ of Burgundy are listed in the UNESCO World Heritage. Our Camping de Santenay, near Beaune in Côte d’Or, is located along the Wine Route; it is nestled among the vineyards and hills. Not far away in Saône et Loire, near our Camping de Matour, is Hameau Duboeuf, the largest wine theme park in Europe. Still in the same region, Camping d'Autun is just steps from Couches Chateau, where you can have a look at the ‘about mountains and wines’ digital hiking trail – it’s not to be missed!
All the richness of the Pays du Val-de-Loire vineyards can be found in the AOC wines and evocative names: Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé, Côteaux du Giennois and others. The wines produced near our Camping de l’île campsite in Cher are best enjoyed when served with delicious Crottin de Chavignol cheese! A little farther into the region, the Touraine area produces crisp, fruity white wines and well-structured red wines with great taste. You can discover all these different flavours during a stay at Camping de Montlouis-sur-Loire!
Head off in the direction of ‘Sparkling Venice’! You can enjoy visiting the champagne cellars of the historical Joseph Perrier estate; it was founded in 1825 and is located near our Camping de Châlons-en-Champagne campsite. The champagne vineyards are one of the fundamental pillars of French viticulture and are of international renown. There are about 80 estates that produce champagne, including the famous Moët et Chandon.
