Eurocamp is a popular option for UK families planning a holiday in Europe. The company has sites in several countries including France, Spain, Croatia, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany, Portugal, Luxembourg, Austria and Switzerland
Eurocamp has made some major changes for the 2024 season including:
Here's a closer look at five outstanding resorts that are either new to Eurocamp or have made big changes for 2024.
1. Eurocamp Atlantic Club Montalivet, France - new resort for 2024
Atlantic Club Montalivet is a whopping great Eurocamp holiday park on France's West Coast. It's a new resort to Eurocamp for 2024 (although it has been going for a number of years under a different name).
Accommodation with hot tubs can be found in the some of the 'Ultimate' grade properties. You may want to check out our guide to Eurocamp's new grading system, which explains the difference between Classic, Comfort, Premium and Ultimate.
The resort ticks a lot of boxes for me, which may explain why it scores a very decent 4/5 from customers on TripAdvisor. You get quick and easy access to the beach as well as a sizeable waterpark in the park itself. There are large outdoor and indoor swimming pools, as well as a splash area and several waterslides (six by my count, plus a couple of small ones for young children). The highlight is a U-shaped waterslide, where you ride in a boat and go up and down whilst screeching.
Sports onsite include tennis, volleyball, football and boules (as always at French resorts).
You can fly to Bordeaux from the UK in about 1 hour 40 minutes and then it's a drive of about 1 hour 20 minutes to Eurocamp Atlantic Club Montalivet. Alternatively, you can get the 40 minute Eurotunnel/Le Shuttle from Folkestone and then drive from Calais in about nine hours.
Temperatures in this part of France tend to peak around 25-27 Celsius in June, July and August.
2. Eurocamp Domaine de Massereau - new hot tubs for 2024
Domaine de Massereau isn't new to Eurocamp, but it has recently added hot tubs as an accommodation option for the first time for 2024.
We're giving it a mention as it's one of the most popular Eurocamp resorts in France. Customers give it a glowing review score of 4.6/5 on Google reviews of 4.5/5 on TripAdvisor.
It is considerably smaller than Eurocamp Atlantic Club Montalivet with about a quarter of the number of holiday homes.
However, it's got everything you are likely to need for a summer holiday in France, including an outdoor swimming pool, a couple of waterslides, a small indoor pool and sauna. Sports include minigolf, bike hire, trampolines, tennis, basketball, volleyball and an optional canoeing excursion.
For eating out there's a restaurant and pizzeria. The nearest beach is about half an hour away by car.
Eurocamp Domaine de Massereau is in Southern France, so you can either drive from Calais in about 10 hours or fly to the nearest airport in about two hours and then drive for half an hour.
3. Eurocamp Verdon Parc - new resort for 2024
Verdon Parc in Provence is another new resort to Eurocamp for 2024. It is well established and scores 4/5 from hundreds of customers, but is now under the Eurocamp brand.
The resort sits alongside a river in Provence, so you can expect peak temperatures of around 27-30 Celsius during June, July and August. It's an inland holiday park, so you would need to drive for about 90 minutes to reach the beaches of Southern France.
In terms of scale, it sits halfway between the very large Atlantic Club Montalivet and the much smaller Eurocamp Domaine de Massereau. You can swim in good-sized outdoor and covered swimming pools. There are also three waterslides - not quite on the same scale at Atlantic Club Montalivet but still good fun.
Sports and activities include tennis, basketball, aqua aerobics and volleyball. Rather unusually, the resort also has a small farm with animals.
It's another resorts which offers hot tubs with some of its posher accommodation.
Driving from Calais will take you about 11 hours, so you may prefer the two hour flight to Marseille followed by an hour's drive from the airport.
4. Eurocamp Mayotte Vacances - new resort for 2024
Mayotte Vacances is another large and well-equipped holiday park coming under the Eurocamp name for 2024. It's in a great location alongside a lake, or you can drive 20 minutes to France's South Western Coast.
By my count, there are five outdoor swimming pools as well as a covered outdoor pool and four waterslides. Sports include table tennis, volleyball and the ubiquitous pétanque.
Some of the posher properties come with hot tubs and there's also an onsite restaurant.
This part of France is slightly cooler than southern France. You can expect highs of about 23-25 Celsius during the summer months. May is cooler with a high of about 19 Celsius.
Driving from Calais takes about nine hours. Bordeaux airport is an hour's drive away. You can fly from the UK in about 1 hour 40 minutes.
5. Eurocamp Domaine de Soleil Plage - new resort for 2024
Our final pick is in the Dordogne region, which can be found inland a little way towards the South West of France. Eurocamp Domaine de Soleil Plage is on the smaller side and it scores 4.5/5 on TripAdvisor.
The location isn't coastal but the nearby river provides entertainment in the form of canoeing and swimming. Less adventurous sorts will use the onsite swimming pools and waterslides.
There's also a playground, sports court, volleyball, tennis, minigolf, table tennis and a restaurant.
The good news for those wanting to avoid flying is that this one is a slightly shorter drive. It'll take you about 8 1/2 hours from Calais (admittedly, that's still a long drive with a car full of children!). It's a rural area so there isn't a large airport particularly nearby. Bordeaux has regular connections with the UK and is about 2 1/2 hours away.
