Well, yes and no.
The locations do offer a tremendous variety of coast, country and city breaks – but there are similarities too. All Eurocamp parcs offer that same sense of bringing the outside in – these are holidays for people who love to get out and explore the world then return home again to a little luxury at the day’s end. Perhaps staying in the top of the range Aspect holiday home, complete with decking, barbeque, en-suite master bedroom and comfy living room.
Parcs offer all manner of creature comforts. Swim in the terrific pools, try a treatment in a blissful spa, or enjoy al fresco dinner in the restaurant, followed by drinks at the bar. Whether you head to the Adriatic Riviera (the Marina di Venezia parc is comfortably close to Venice), or the sunny south of France (perhaps to lovely La Sirene, just outside the vibrant Catalan city of Perpignan) you’ll enjoy a terrific sense of freedom and acres of space to stretch out and relax in.
What’s more, you are welcome to bring your four-legged friend, because they are indeed a member of the family. And they’ll certainly enjoy the comforts of Eurocamp mobile homes and the natural surroundings in the parcs.
Given the tricky times just now, with Covid-19, you’ll possibly want to enjoy self-contained and self-catering accommodation, where you can ensure social distancing and the opportunity to maintain your bubble, other than doing the shopping. Restaurants and bars are open and have outside spaces, so you can benefit from the fresh air. Eurocamp are operating an All Points Protection Programme, so from the distanced check-in, through extensive cleaning, staff in PPE and reduced numbers of people using the parc’s facilities at any one time, you should feel safe, with health and hygiene a priority.
Our pick of the parcs in Europe
La Grande Métairie, Brittany – for the Carnac Stones, a vast set of megalithic sites made up of more than 3,000 prehistoric standing stones. Close to the beach and ferry ports at Calais and Dieppe too.
La Bien Assise, Picardy – for the beaches and battlefields of World War II. A smaller parc, in the grounds of a château, which might suit well for a short stay before you head to the south.
Domaine de Massereau, Languedoc – who isn’t excited by a parc that has its own vineyard, with tasting experiences? And a small indoor spa with hammam, jacuzzi and sauna – real relaxation.
Les Ranchisses, Ardèche – magical canoeing or kayaking through a series of lovely gorges. Enjoy life on the river, at your own pace. You could enjoy the fishing too. Dog friendly on this small site.
Le Ruisseau, Landes – just outside Biarritz, with beaches perfect for swimming and surfing. Stroll through the elegant town, steeped in history and full of excellent restaurants.
Parco della Piscine, Tuscany – on the outskirts of the hilltop town of Sarteano, the swimming pools here are fed by thermal springs, keeping the water at a constant 24°C. Enjoy Italian cookery classes.
Villanova Park, Costa Dorada – perfectly situated for trips to Gaudi’s Barcelona, with all its cultural attractions. Set in the region where Cava is produced, so prepare to enjoy some bubbles!
Jungfrau, Switzerland – for the authentic Alpine experience, surrounded by waterfalls, fresh air and mountains. You can even walk the Eiger trail to see the glacier. Maybe try a spot of yodelling?
For all the parcs available, Silver Travel Advisor recommends Eurocamp.
