It’s not just technology that’s constantly upgrading and evolving. Every year, holiday parks refresh and rejuvenate their stock of accommodation. In 2015 Eurocamp added a fleet of new mobile homes to their holiday parcs: the Avant, which we stayed in at La Garangeoire, in France, last summer. Eurocamp have since added even newer models, like the Aspect and the Azure ranges.
You can take a video tour of the Avant here:
The Avant had three bedrooms, and slept up to eight people. There were three of us, and the mobile home gave us bags of space. The Avant would have comfortably accommodated a family of six, but it would have been a bit of a squish for eight.
Our master bed was queen-sized.
Typically, our two young children insisted that they sleep in the bunkbeds in the much smaller bunk room. The twin room was relatively large compared with others we’ve stayed in. Each of the bedrooms had its own wardrobe.
Our only niggle was that the window of the master bedroom was stuck and wouldn’t open, causing a minor panic when we arrived in baking heat. The Eurocamp staff sorted it out the next day, though.
The living area was a decent size, with floor-to-ceiling windows on one side, to let in lots of light.
Kitchen and bathroom
The Avant had a small toilet/shower room, with loo roll ready and waiting. The galley kitchen was well-stocked with pots, pans and cutlery. A cute kettle sat on top of the hob, and – most delightfully – the kitchen included a large dishwasher. The fridge/freezer was almost as large as the one we have at home, with plenty of space for a seven-day break.
La Garangeoire is set in a rural part of the Vendée, and the area around the Eurocamp mobile homes was tranquil, with plenty of trees. La Garangeoire staff were strict about enforcing the ‘no noise after 11pm’ rule, which suited us. Our Avant had a covered decking space, where we ate all our meals. It felt private, and had a gate, which would have been especially useful for families travelling with toddlers. A charcoal barbeque sat outside the decking area.
There were lots of little touches that made us feel the Eurocamp service went above the level of service we’ve experienced elsewhere. When we arrived, a Eurocamp courier greeted us, and took away our microwave, as he’d decided it wasn’t up to the job (he hadn’t been able to get it as spotlessly clean as he’d liked). He relaced it with a brand new one.
Eurocamp gave us two welcome packs: the standard, which usually costs £12 and includes items you really don’t want to have to pack if you’re flying, like olive oil, salt and tea. A £4 essentials pack was also waiting for us, with cleaning cloths, bin liners and cleaning liquid. You’d probably have to buy more if you were staying for as long as a week, but it was good to have this to start us off.
Throughout our stay, the Eurocamp couriers looked after us well. They hung out at the Eurocamp cabin, where we could borrow board games, books, inflatables for the pool and table tennis bats.
Prices vary at the Eurocamp sites. The company covers a number of countries, including Germany and Holland, as well and France and Spain. You can find out more on the Eurocamp website.
