Hi Everyone, We recently got back from an amazing holiday with Eurocamp over in Normandy France. Im excited to share how we got on since this was our first 'Eurocamp' experience!
We stayed at the La Côte de Nacre Campsite.
We ventured out bring and early Friday morning to catch our ferry from Porstmouth, we used Brittany Ferries to travel over to Caen which was a fair few hours trip but luckily the boat over had entertainment, games room and mini soft play for the children, which was honesty a lifesaver!
Once we got off the long ferry journey La Côte de Nacre Campsite was only a 20 minute drive away. Grahams first time driving on the other side of the road in France was really good, the route was very simple to the campsite.
We stayed in the very modern Vista 3 Bed Holiday Home.
The bedrooms were quite spacious and all had large built in storage. I loved the living space because it was totally open planned. It didn't overcrowded since we had space to pull out the dining table with extra chairs. Also he kids had space to play and colour on the floor.
The sofa area was comfy and adaptable with a pull out bed underneath for extra guests which was really good. There was a docking station for an iPod or iPhone 4 which we used a lot.
The veranda had a patio set which we used on the sunnier days and we also had a gas barbecue which Eurocamp provide with gas. We definitely took advantage of that on the warmest day, Graham rustled up some yummy French sausages and Burgers!
The patio doors swung open wide for extra entertaining space which was lovely.
I loved the kitchen and how equipped it came, everything i needed was available and we cooked every morning and most evenings. The kitchen came with a Microwave and whistling kettle which i enjoyed using! The whole space though quite small felt so spacious and bright.
We had 3 bedrooms, 1 double, 1 standard twin and a bunked which the children shared.
There was a large shower and 1 toilet.
The bedrooms were as spacious as they could be, good enough to sleep in and could hold some hanged clothing in the wardrobe. We used the twin bedroom for our suitcase and extras room!
Each room had electric heaters in, which were really easy to use and kept the whole place so cosy and warm.. sometimes too warm!
I loved that each bed not only had the bedlinen but lovely cosy blankets to, its was great to snuggle up together and play board games in the evenings.
The bed linen is and extra and starts from £12.50 and saves bringing all your own stuff and having the extra washing, you can also hire the towels to!
Euro camp kindly supplied a Welcome pack which is £12 and an Essentials pack at £3. These are great for starting out on basics so you don't have to worry about packing extra things like olive oil & washing up liquid!
We had a lovely wander round the camp and came across a lovely kids enclosed park with this huge play area! There was also lots of other fun climbing equipment and a doggy bouncy castle which was running practically all day!
There were also ping pong tables, basketball & football courts a games room and of course a huge indoor and outdoor pool. The outdoor pool however wasn't open as it was too cold.
We really enjoyed the indoor pool it was lovely and heated and had a really good 'kiddy safe area'. There were loads of loungers and the changing areas were clean and easy to use. I loved that we had to take our shoes off at the entrance to keep the pool area nice and clean.
They definitely come well equipped with lots of things for kids to do of all ages in my opinion.
The restaurant on the camp was great, staff were lovely and we ate there once on the first night. I had yummy pizza and the kids menu was good. They have entertainment for the children most evenings, with a mini disco. The children really enjoyed that especially Violet. We also went to the movie night although the film Big Hero 6 was in French they did have subtitles and the kids didn't seem to mind at all!
Our stay with Eurocamp was brilliant the beach locally was beautiful at St Aubin and the quaint little village was full of pretty buildings and cafes to eat at. The handy Hyper U supermarket was a 5 min drive which was a great place for the essentials of self catering and had everything you would need for your stay.
Thanks so much for Eurocamp for taking us on this Holiday to remember we will definitely be back!
