Relaxed and friendly rural retreat, where you can
take a deep breath, rest and unwind.
|At Camping Le Vieux Moulin we advocate a shift toward slowing down life’s pace. Savouring the hours and minutes rather than just counting them. Going for a walk or a cycle, taking a blanket down to the river bank and relaxing under the summer sun; reading a good book; enjoying a glass of wine; playing games with the children or simply spending quality time with friends and family away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Camping Le Vieux Moulin is a small family run site near the village of Neuville-Sur-Sarthe 10 km/6 miles from the historic town of Le Mans.
Set alongside the River Sarthe in 4 hectares (12 acres) containing more than 100 mature trees with at least 50 different varieties. Providing the perfect habitat for the resident red squirrels, bats, butterflies and many different birds. Giving you the prefect environment to take a deep breath; rest and unwind.
The large emplacements are demarcated by mature trees/bushes and are serviced with 16 amp electric with fresh running water and grey waste nearby. Emplacements are in full shade, partial shade or full sun, you choose. The campsite re-opened in June 2017 after being closed for more than eight years. The new owners Martyn and Louise are committed to ensuring you have an enjoyable stay and will help you plan your days if you need help deciding what to do next.
The campsite is within walking distance of the local village, Neuville Sur Sarthe. The village is small but perfectly formed, benefiting from a supermarket, pharmacy, patisserie, hairdressers, butchers/delicatessen and restaurant/bar. The village has a regular bus service into Le Mans and the surrounding area so need to take the car. Along with a railway station which takes you into the heart of Le Mans (7 mins.) with onward travel to major towns and cities including Paris which can take as little 58 mins through the beautiful french countryside.
The site is equipped with a 10 x 5 m swimming pool, children’s activities, pétanque bowladrome, table tennis and playing field for ball games. For those wishing to snooze under the warmth of the sun listening to the birds or reading a good book, there are quieter areas away from the main activities offering something for everyone.
