Eurocamp France – best Eurocamp sites in France for families
Last year was our first Eurocamp holiday with our young children and we had such a wonderful week exploring the Dordogne. We loved our week in France and found the ferry travel stress free with the little ones, so we headed back this year for a three week road trip exploring the West coast of France. Eurocamp has always been a firm favourite growing up, I remember many a Summer with my family, enjoying the beautiful sunshine, walking to the local supermarket for croissants or freshly baked french bread for breakfast. I remember the long sunny days on the beaches and hours of fun in the Eurocamp kids’ club. Beautiful memories. Last year I spent hours searching on the Eurocamp site, looking through all of the reviews, trying to decide which are the best Eurocamp sites in France for families and in particular a good Eurocamp parc for toddlers. With three children 3, 5 and 9, I was keen to find a choice of the best Eurocamp parcs for a holiday with kids.
Here, I have selected 11 top Eurocamp sites in France many that have been tried and tested by the Otis and Us tribe or by others. Which do you fancy?
