After settled down on the the campsite, it was time to explore the surrounding. The campsite was located in a curve of the river Loir, so there where lot of good places to fish. Before the fishing adventure we want to buy a permit for fishing so we had to go to the local bookstore in the village to get us the permit for fishing. After we found the mentioned store the woman was difficult to understand. My France language is not so good and she didn't speak no other language, and after talking with hands and feet work it turned out that she didn't had the permits and that the boy's can fish without a problem. When we arrived back on the campsite, it was getting the fishing gear and find a good spot to catch some fish. After an hour the boy's gave up fishing, no fish was catched.
Another eye catcher on the campsite was a big camper touring car. It was big, and needed two places for all the gear the took with them. Behind the camper they had a trailer for the car, and inside the car they carried a scooter. It was a very luxury way for travelling, but i think they used it for work or something.
This campsite is more used for travellers who are going further, and stay here for one or two nights, but this was also a site where you can stay longer if you want. They have a small pool, playground and animation and games for the kids. The surrounding area is great and Le mans nearby.
