So which are the Best Eurocamp sites for families?
Eurocamp was a firm family favourite when I was growing up. I have fond memories of long drives down through France to get to a site, the excitement of finding our tent or our caravan, of kids clubs and trips to the Boulangerie for breakfast, and of swimming pools and lakes to swim in. Eurocamp sites still provide all that but they also provide much much more too!
When faced with the Eurocamp website though and over 190 parcs in 10 European countries, including family favourites France, Spain and Italy. Where do you choose? Which Eurocamp Sites are best for families?
I’ve set this post out by Country and have linked into the post reviews written by Mini Travellers and other bloggers, many of whom have worked in collaboration with Eurocamp but whose views are always their own.
Northern France – Camping Holiday in France
Domaine de Drancourt (Picardy)
Domaine de Drancourt is in the grounds of a French château, which is just a short hop over the Channel. Bringing up Charlie says, ‘It’s handy, being not far from the Channel ports and well situated for all sorts of activities including the World War One battlefields I was keen to visit.’ Read More…
La Bien Assise Campsite(Picardy)
La Bien Assise Campsite . Whether you’re on a short stopover from Calais or planning a longer stay, there’s plenty to explore at La Bien-Assise, a peaceful parc that’s set in the the grounds of a French château. The parc even organises walks into the surrounding woods. Overall, Mama Scribbles thought this park was wonderful and that their whole Eurocamp experience was fantastic. They would absolutely return again for another holiday and would definitely look at going to other parks too Read More… from Mama Scribbles
La Vallée Eurocamp (Normandy)
La Vallée Eurocamp is a glorious rural setting close to magnificent sandy beaches and scattered with flowers and fruit trees. With non-stop activities, La Valllée has everything you could think of. Ian and Emma writers from Mini Travellers says, ‘The kids clubs were a roaring success and we were surprised by how much there was on offer to children of all ages. Our two year old was able to go to Mini Fun Station Plus (up to 5 years old) sessions accompanied by an adult and she enjoyed playing musical instruments, singing, painting and playing games.’
Chateau de Lez Eaux (Normandy)
There are excellent facilities at Chateau de Lez Eaux including a lovely bar and a beautifully landscaped indoor water park, complete with slides. Don’t forget your fishing rod either, as you’re welcome to try your luck on the little lake, free of charge. If you’re visiting over July and August, you’ll enjoy a unique chance to visit the local market that is held on parc every Tuesday.
