A charming woodland parc close to the Château de Chambord, arguably the most magnificent of all Loire châteaux.
Set in the spacious grounds of an old stone manor house, the peaceful wooded surroundings make Le Château des Marais an ideal parc for families with young children - who’ll love the park-run children’s club. The parc retains the atmosphere of an exclusive country estate and features a great waterpark with waterslides, a lazy river and a spacious sun terrace. The parc has recently developed the restaurant, supermarket and reception, resulting in lovely, modern facilities. Some noise may be heard from the nearby road. The parc is a five minute walk from the village of Muides-sur-Loire. A small indoor spa, sauna, hammam and jacuzzi has now been built on the parc, for which there is a small charge.
The following facilities are available:
Some facilities remain closed in low season, please check at the time of booking if there is an activity or facility which is key for your holiday.
Right next to the Chateau de Chambord, this parc provides the perfect location for an exciting French holiday. With a mixture of outdoor and covered pools, this complex also boasts waterslides, sunloungers and parasols for a well rounded splashtastic holiday. Surrounded by evergreen trees, the pool area offers a wonderfully fresh atmosphere that the whole family will enjoy.

You should also visit the medieval city of Tours with its fine Gothic cathedral.

The Château of Chambord is one of the loveliest Renaissance buildings in the Loire. It was completed in 1547 and there is evidence to suggest that Leonardo di Vinci assisted in its design. Surrounded by walls of 22 miles, the chateau has 440 rooms and stables to accommodate 1200 horses. The park is over 5000 hectares in size
Built in 1513 on the river Cher, it is one of the finest châteaux in the Loire with outstanding architecture. The château is home to fine collections of Renaissance furniture, 16th, 17th centuries tapestries and a great number of masterpieces. 70 Hectares of parks and gardens for walks
Take a step back into history and discover hundreds of ancient tools depicting traditional skills and crafts

Take a look at some of the local recommendations for days out and activities our customers have shared with us following their holiday at Château des Marais.
"Château de Chambord was really good, as was the 8pm visit to see the wild boar and deer from the hides."
B. Robinson, Kent
"We enjoyed visiting Blois, Amboise, Beaugency and Beauval Zoo Parc. Would definitely recommend the Zoo, Amboise, the House of Magic in Blois and the sound and light show at the château in Blois. Chambord too was lovely."
J. McDevitt, Co. Antrim
"Blois was fantastic, especially the House of Magic and the Saturday market. Château de Chambord was great too, and we all loved canoeing at St Dye… Hard work but great fun!"
J. Whitehead, Merseyside
"We went to Château de Chambord which was huge which the kids loved to run around. It was well worth stopping at the viewing stations in the country park around the château, we saw deer and wild boar. Blois was a lovely, typically French town with old houses and squares. We also enjoyed its château and the sword fighting display in the afternoon - every child there thought it was real!"
C. Hawkins, Hertfordshire
"We enjoyed strolling around Blois, cycling to Château de Chambord and around the village local to the parc, picking wild flowers."
R. Pool, Hertfordshire
"There were many small medieval towns and villages that we enjoyed cycling through. Beaugency was really lovely with lots of restaurants, as is Blois - lots of pedestrianised areas, plants and gardens. I would also recommend you take a canoe and view from the river. Cycling along the River Loire was amazing."
S. Holmes, East Sussex
"We visited local villages by bicycle - the cycle routes are very good and the cycle maps are excellent. Regular rides past Château de Chambord were never a chore - a wonderful sight - and the viewing stations where you can see the red deer, boar and wild sheep grazing in their natural surroundings are just brilliant (and free!). The show at the château was well worth the money and was the only time my 2 year old grandson sat still! He was enthralled by it all."
M. Pearson, Oxfordshire
"Château de Chambord was stunning - too much to see in one day. Saumur is a beautiful town; friendly and a great place to buy your wine!"
G. Martin, West Sussex
