Staying at Le Camp Du Drap D’Or at Puy Du Fou

Are you planning a family holiday to France?

Last week I took a trip to the extraordinary Puy Du Fou theme park. Which is the perfect family holiday destination, offering magic and intrigue by the bucket load. I have so much to share but first I want to talk about this gem of a hotel, based on site at Puy Du Fou.

Review of Le Camp Du Drap D'Or at Puy Du Fou

Puy Du Fou is only an hour’s drive from Nantes airport where you can hire a car or arrange a taxi to get to the park. (Please note there are tolls en route so ensure you have a card or some change handy)

Le Camp Du Drap D’Or is just a short walk from the gates of Puy Du Fou and the perfect retreat after a day of magic in the park.

The Puy Du Fou hotel is a historical themed hotel, which oozes charm and style. Yet also offers practical family accommodation close to the park. And with the offering of late night shows, the on site proximity makes this the perfect location.

The Camp du Drap D’Or invites its guests to follow in the footsteps of Henry VIII and Francis I of France in one of 100 flamboyant ‘lodgings’ of the Field of the Cloth of Gold.

The lodges appear to be luxurious yurts from the outside. But are in fact well-appointed themed 1 and 2 bedroom suites featuring a main room with a 4 poster bed (which is super comfy) leading through to a second smaller room will bunk beds for a super cool family travel experience.

The suites also have a bathroom and separate luxury shower room offering flexibility for families.

The practicalities of the lodges at Le Camp Du Drap D’Or.

The suites offer free Wi-Fi, have a safe, air-conditioning and heating. There is shower gel and hand soap in the wet room and a hairdryer. Storage is ample for a 2-night visit with a wardrobe area and coat hangers. And plenty of European plug sockets I counted 4.

The TV has a variety of TV and radio channels. I was given a guide at reception with all the channel numbers. Check out channel 29 The Puy Du Fou channel in English it has lots of hints and tips and behind the scenes info about the park.

Rooms are cleaned every day and towels replaced whilst you are out enjoying the parks.

Park entrance is only – €35/adult for 1 day (all the shows and activities, included the night show “Les Orgues de Feu” ) and €25/child for 1 day.

Or €56/adult for 2 days and 40€/child for 2 days.

Stay on site in a themed hotel: From €382 per family, including 2 days at the park, one night in in an on-site hotel, private parking, breakfast, night show “Les Orgues de Feu”.

The rooms do not offer tea and coffee-making facilities or water, I would advise taking a stock of water or soft drinks for your room. Drinks are also available at the hotel bar and in the park. However the tap water is also perfectly safe to drink.

Breakfast at Camp Du Drap D’Or is a continental buffet.

Offering a choice of cheeses, bread, cold pancakes, pastries and the most delicious fruit salad and yoghurt, fresh juices, water and tea and coffee. All of the food I ate during my visit was to the highest of standards. The fruit was delicious and fresh, the pastries buttery and soft and a wonderful choice of hot drinks.

Evening meals are an event.

There are many dining options within the park, including a wonderful bistro and themed dinners. And all the on site hotels all have restaurants. The restaurant at Camp Du Drap D’Or is an all you can eat grill buffet offering delicious cuts of meat, salad, vegetables, cheeses and amazing desserts. And with a price tag of £23 pounds for adults and £12 pounds it is great value.

My Thoughts on The Camp Du Drap D’Or Hotel?

I loved everything about it the service and staff were wonderful. The lodges were high quality and immaculate and the location to the park is great. Camp Du Drap D’Or Hotel feels magical allowing you to extend the magic of the parks and stay in that magical bubble of Puy Du Fou even longer.  I can’t wait to go back and would thoroughly recommend it. If you would like a virtual tour, my room tour vlog is below.
