What are Eurocamp holidays like?
In a word: diverse! When Eurocamp launched in 1973, it sold only tent-based holidays at a solitary campsite in Brittany. Fast-forward to now and things are very different – but with the accent still firmly on enjoying life outdoors.
Where is Eurocamp?
Lots of places. Eurocamp offers holidays in 150 parcs in 10 European countries, from France to Croatia, all available between April and October. But that’s only half the story. There are also distinct categories of parc (more about those in a moment) and numerous accommodation options, ranging well beyond traditional, bring-a-mallet camping.
So it’s not all about tents any more?
Not at all. While Eurocamp still firmly has camping in its blood, there are many more accommodation options.
You can book pre-erected, African-style safari tents on raised decking. These put the emphasis on outdoor living, as do a huge range of modern holiday homes and luxury lodges featuring their own private terraces, typically with barbecue facilities. Indoors, everyone can enjoy their own space in separate bedrooms, and self-catering facilities enable dining in when desired.
Among the litany of possibilities are timber cabins set above Lake Garda in Italy; air-conditioned garden bungalows containing fully equipped kitchens on Spain’s Costa Dorada; open-plan holiday homes close to Venice; and plush lodges at Camping Le Vieux Port on France’s Atlantic coast that lay on Jacuzzis and satellite TV. A large number accept dogs, and many are designed for guests with limited mobility.
How do I choose a parc?
First, consider what kind of experience you’re after. Eurocamp’s various parc types are designed to provide a range of experiences for everyone, from walkers to families with a penchant for adrenaline.
The Campsites category involves easy-going, soulful sites with an accent on exploring the local countryside, as do the slightly busier, bigger-size villages.
Then you have resorts, which include splashy water parcs and activity-crammed sites where bicycle hire, pedalos or mini go-karts might be available. These resorts usually offer entertainment such as karaoke shows and theme nights after dark, too.
Another factor to weigh in is your preference in terms of Eurocamp locations. You might stay beachside, handily close to many sightseeing attractions, or amid peaceful rural areas just begging to be biked or kayaked.
Where are the best Eurocamp sites?
Again, it really depends on your predilections! If a holiday isn’t a holiday unless there’s sand between toes, you could opt for a parc beside a Blue Flag beach near Zadar, Croatia.
Some parcs are situated handily close to cities such as Rome and Barcelona; others lie deep in beautiful national parks (try Le Belledonne Campsite in the French Alps), near fairytale castles (the Costa Brava’s Castell Montgri Resort) or in shot of theme parks and their hair-raising rides (Het Genieten Campsite in the Netherlands, close to Efteling). For extra convenience, some even have theme parks on-site! In short, whatever you’re after, Eurocamp has a parc to match.
You might also consider checking out the list of 2024’s best-selling campsites. Not only are these estates especially popular with repeat bookers but, for good reason, they’re likely to sell out the quickest.
Are Eurocamp holidays self-catering?
Put simply, it’s up to you! It’s entirely possible to self-cater throughout your stay: Eurocamp’s bungalows, lodges and the like come with full kitchens containing everything you need, often in addition to their outdoor barbecues. There’s a grocery store or mini-market on every parc too, so you don’t have to travel to them laden with supplies. Some also contain boulangeries so you can make fresh sandwiches for picnics.
That all said, you might be of the firm belief that cooking is a chore and chores have no place on holidays. If so, good news: each parc also lays on at least one restaurant – sometimes takeaway-only – plus a bar, and often several options for dining out, always relaxed and delicious.
Most guests do a bit of both, choosing to eat out some days but gathering happily at their base on others — ideally al fresco, under an evening sun. As ever with Eurocamp, flexibility is the watchword.
What facilities will there be?
As well as restaurants and shops, you’ll nearly always find a swimming pool on site. Sixteen sites include free kids' clubs where youngsters can make friends, let off steam and safely try a range of activities as parents enjoy some well-earned R&R.
What else? There could be 18 holes of golf, or perhaps a horse-riding school. Some resorts lay on spas, high-wire adventure courses, archery, aqua gyms and even mini-vineyards. Parking spaces are a given and wi-fi is usually available if needed.
You can use the Eurocamp website’s thorough search tool to specify those facilities vital for you.
Does Eurocamp include flights?
They can do! As well as accommodation, many guests choose to book their flights, train travel, cross-channel ferries or even car hire through Eurocamp — and for good reason beyond mere convenience: the company frequently offers discounted rates.
Many Eurocamp parcs are deliberately located to capitalise on low-cost flights or rail travel to the area. Those in northern France are also easily reached by car during a self-drive holiday. Ultra-flexible start and finish dates (rather than rigid Saturday-to-Saturday rules or the like) leave you free to find the routes and departure dates which work best, or cost least.
How much does it cost?
This obviously depends on when and where you book, but to keep things simple, stays are always offered on an accommodation basis, not per person. There’s a standard deposit of £99 per family, and you can pay in instalments up to 10 weeks before your holiday.
