10 best Eurocamp caravan holiday parks 2021
Eurocamp has got nearly 200 holiday parks across Europe. Most are in France and Italy, but they’ve also got some family-friendly caravan parks in Spain, Switzerland, Holland and Croatia.
They’re often described as ‘campsites’ but most have holiday caravans or lodges for hire. Some are in fantastic seaside locations and most have their own water parks or swimming pools.
We’ve picked out 10 of the best Eurocamp holiday parks by comparing reviews, price, location and facilities. We also did a price comparison for a week in August 2021 for a family holiday.
1. Domaine des Ormes Campsite Brittany, France (big park, swimming, high wires)
Domaine des Ormes Campsite is a large holiday park, which covers roughly the same amount of space as one of the UK's Center Parcs resorts. As with most French resorts, it calls itself a 'campsite' but the accommodation is more like the lodges and caravans you get at UK holiday parks.
The main feature is the 'dome aquatic complex' which has an indoor swimming pool as well as a wave pool and splash park. The dome opened in 2019.
The site isn't near to the beach but it has a lake and plenty of things to do onsite including a golf course, fishing, tennis, basketball, pony rides, volleyball and boules.
Eating out options include two bars, a creperie and a pizzeria. There's also a restaurant which is part of the golf course.
Reviews on TripAdvisor average 4/5 from about 1000+ customers. If you want to explore, it's about 40 minutes in the car to Mont St Michael which is a famous island in the area.
Price: £1832 for a week in a three bedroom 'Azure' static home for a family of four in early August 2021.
2. La Garangeoire Campsite Vendee, France (busy park, several swimming pools, near beach)
La Garangeoire on France's west coast makes our list thanks to reviews of 9/10, a big range of facilities and its location in the pretty Vendee with its famous sandy beaches.
The park is a family friendly one, so better for visitors looking for activities and constant entertainment rather than those wanting constant silence.
There are four outdoor swimming pools, one covered pool and a large shallow 'lagoon' pool which is surrounded by a beach. There are also (take a deep breath)... waterslides, horse riding, crazy golf, playgrounds, trampolining, cycling, archery, fishing, table tennis, canoeing, pedalos and various other sports. There are kids' clubs for various age groups as well.
In summary, you won't be bored.
If you want to bring a car you can take an 11 hour ferry from Portsmouth to St Malo followed by a 3 hour drive. You could also take the Eurotunnel, followed by a 7 hour drive. If you prefer to fly, there's a 90 minute flight from London to Nantes followed by a 1hr 15m drive.
Price: £1646 for a family of four staying in a 'Vista' 2 bedroom static home/caravan for a week in August 2021. That price was arriving on a Thursday. It was about £400 extra to arrive on a Saturday.
3. Cambrils Park Spain (busy coastal park, loads of facilities, great reviews)
There are about 20 Eurocamp holiday parks across Spain and Portugal but we’ve picked out Cambrils Park. It's the most expensive holiday park on our top 10 guide, but it's got a lot going for it.
It’s a large, family friendly holiday park with loads to do onsite and a beach about 10 minutes walk away on the Costa Dorada (part of Catalonia, nearish to Barcelona).
Reviews are outstanding, averaging about 9/10 (or 4.5/5 on TripAdvisor). There’s a splash park and swimming pool with waterslides, various sports on site, mini golf, a gym and spa as well as kids' clubs.
Bear in mind this is a busy park aimed at families. Don’t turn up expecting silence and solitude…
From the UK you can either go for a 24 hour crossing on the ferry followed by a 5 hour drive. Or, you can fly to nearby Reus in about 2 hours. The accommodation is two bedroom bungalows, which look a little bit more substantial than caravans.
Price: £2006 for a family of four for a week in August 2021.
4. Jungfrau Campsite Switzerland (simple site with stunning surroundings)
You might assume a Swiss holiday park will bankrupt you, but the Jungfrau Campsite isn’t actually all that expensive – and it gets excellent reviews.
It doesn’t have the non-stop noisy entertainment of some Eurocamp holiday parks (there’s no swimming pool) but it’s surrounded by waterfalls and the local village has such things.
There's easy access to the river and you can walk along the Eiger trail or hire bikes. There are plenty of caravans/static homes to choose from or you can camp if you're on a budget.
Zurich airport is a two hour drive away, or you can get the Dover ferry to Calais (about 90 minutes) and then drive for about 9 hours. Don't forget to charge up the tablet for the kids...
Reviews average 9/10.
Price: £1281 for a week in August 2021 for a family of four in a three bedroom caravan. They also have safari tents which were a bit cheaper.
5. Koningshof Campsite Netherlands (indoor swimming pool, easy to reach, small park)
**Winner: cheapest Eurocamp holiday park in our top 10**
This Dutch holiday park is pretty easy to get to if you're living in the South East of England. At the time of writing, there's a ferry from Harwich in Essex which takes about 6 hours and then it's about an hour's drive from Hook of Holland to Koningshof Campsite.
It's near the seaside and only an hour's drive to Amsterdam.
The park itself is fairly small but it's got indoor and outdoor swimming pools and waterslides, as well as fishing, bike hire and a handful of sports on site.
Reviews average 9 out of 10 (it's also known as Vakantiepark Koningshof in case you're wondering).
Price: £1111 for a family of four for a week in August 2021 in a 'Comfort' 2 bedroom caravan/static home.
6. Parco delle Piscine Campsite Tuscany, Italy (swimming pools, Tuscan scenery, some facilities)
The Parco delle Piscine Campsite makes our list because of its good reviews (9/10), pleasant location in Tuscany and its three swimming pools which are heated by thermal springs. You wouldn't get that in Skegness.
It's a fairly large holiday park, with a kids' club, tennis courts, volleyball, basketball and a playground. The local town has a castle and Rome is a couple of hours' away by train.
As you're probably aware, Tuscany is famous for its vineyards, rich artistic history (particularly Florence) and its rolling countryside.
You can fly to Florence in about 2 1/2 hours and then it's a couple of hours in a car to the Campsite. The other option is a 90 minute ferry from Dover to Calais and then a 15 hour drive. I'd consider splitting up the drive at Campingplatz Herbolzheim in Germany.
As you may have gathered, hiring a car at the airport is probably your best option unless you are doing a tour of Europe or have very patient children. I admit that's an oxymoron.
Price: £1434 for a family of four for a week in August 2021, staying in a 3 bedroom 'Comfort' mobile home/caravan.
7. Rio Vantone Campsite Northern Italy (simple park with beautiful surroundings)
Rio Vantone Campsite is another Italian holiday park worthy of a place in our Eurocamp top 10 thanks to its beautiful location.
This one is worth considering if you want an outdoorsy holiday, rather than day trips to cities. There's a lake nearby where you can try out watersports and it is surrounded by mountains. Reviews are very strong, averaging about 9/10.
Onsite facilities are fairly modest compared to some huge parks but there's an outdoor swimming pool, table tennis, badminton and volleyball as well as somewhere to eat.
If you're flying then it's a two hour flight from London to Brescia followed by a one hour drive. If you're driving the whole way then it's a 90 minute ferry from Dover to Calais followed by a 12 hour drive.
Price: £1148 for a week's holiday in August 2021 for a family of two adults and two children, staying in a two 'Classic' bedroom mobile home/caravan.
8. Sole di Sari Campsite Corsica (simple park for exploring, great scenery)
Corsica is an Island which is a region of France but it's near to Italy, so your best option is probably a flight from London which takes a couple of hours.
The Sole di Sari Campsite itself is relatively small with simpler swimming pools than some massive holiday parks in Europe. There's also table tennis, a playground and a kids' club but don't expect to spend every waking moment onsite. There are places to eat in the park, but only in the peak season.
It makes our list because of its great location, which is near to forests, beaches and mountains such as Monte Cinto. There are plenty of places to try watersports nearby, but you'll need to leave the site.
I'd say this park is better for families with older children who will cope with a walk of more than 10 metres, or perhaps for couples looking for a pleasant base to explore the Island.
Reviews are between 8 and 9 out of 10.
Price: £1388 for a week in a two bedroom Comfort 'Vista' static home/caravan for a family of four in August 2021.
9. Südsee-Camp Campsite, Germany (large park, indoor swimming pool, kids' club)
There are two Eurocamp holiday parks in Germany which we think deserve consideration in this top 10 guide. Campingplatz Herbolzheim is near to the French border in the South West of Germany whilst Südsee-Camp is towards the North of Germany between Hamburg and Hanover.
Campingplatz Herbolzheim is a small park which is a good spot for breaking up a long drive to Italy, but we’ve picked Südsee-Camp Campsite which is a very large and busy holiday park with loads to do.
It’s got an indoor swimming pool although you have to pay a little bit to use it as it’s also open to the public. It’s near a lake and has lots of sports onsite, including crazy golf, basketball, table tennis, archery, horse riding, trampolining and an adventure course. There are also kids' clubs and places to eat onsite.
Reviews average about 8 or 9 out of 10.
You can either fly to Hanover (90 minutes from London) and then hire a car/use public transport for the last hour's drive. Or you can get a 90 minute ferry from Dover to Calais and then drive for 8 hours.
Price: £1310 for a week for a family of four, staying in a 3 bed Comfort Vista caravan/static home.
10. Le Paradis Campsite Dordogne, France (riverside park, strong reviews, mid-sized facilities)
There's a big choice of highly regarded Eurocamp holiday parks in the Dordogne, but we've picked out Le Paradis Campsite which has a range of swimming pools and reviews of 9/10.
Although it isn't a huge holiday park, it is in a lovely green location, surrounded by woodland. Facilities are decent, including tennis, boules, table tennis and volleyball. You can also hire bikes and there's a restaurant onsite.
It also has easy access to the local River Vézère, which is ideal if your children aren't likely to try and push each other out of a canoe after a morning dispute about who was going to eat the last croissant.
The local area is famous for its caves, chateaux and pretty little villages, which couldn't look more French unless they were wearing a beret. It's not near to the beach, so you can leave the bucket and spade behind.
You can fly to Bergerac airport in about 90 minutes and then drive about an hour. Driving all the way from the UK is a bit of a trek - it's an 11 hour ferry from Portsmouth to St Malo and then a 7 hour drive. I'd be ready for a holiday on my own by that point...
Price: £1448 for a week staying in a three bedroom 'Azure' caravan/mobile home for a family of four in August 2021.
