EUROCAMP: A Long Weekend On The French Atlantic Coast - Day 4 The Beach Again And Coming Home


Another sunny morning after the storm last night!

I went to get the chocolatines before anyone else had stirred!



These little cabins were on the VIP tent sites - a toilet, a shower and a sink! All to yourself! Not that I would ever camp but if Idid this would help



Those of you who are observant will note the title says coming home! Whilst we had booked for 4 nights we had discussed coming back earlier. J was struggling with his ribs and wrist after his bike accident and really fancied having the day at home on Sunday. Check out time was 10 am anyway which meant we couldn't do much anyway on Sunday!

The kids were fine - as long as we hit the beach today!



We came prepared today with the pop up tent! Easy to get up ...



F loves American Girl dolls and has started her own instagram for it. She wanted to do a beach photoshoot! She makes most of their clothes - all self taught!



The surf was perfect so the three of them body boarded for about 4 hours whilst I read (and maybe napped )



The tent was somewhat harder to get down - even for an engineer...



Us girls did laugh!

When we got back we had a late lunch and then started packing - there seemed to he more stuff!

It took us about 3 hours to get back - and we avoided the "journe rouge" tomorrow (I predict it will be awful from 4pm onwards! )



Thoughts on the trip:
Being near the beach was great - we all had fun and the kids really enjoyed messing around in the water. It was a great idea to go away and it is a stunning part of France - much preferred over the Med!

The mobile home was fine - cramped in the bedrooms. It was hot too - no aircon in the one we rented! If going in the height of summer that would be essential. It was worth paying extra to be near the beach which was the big draw for us.

We only went to the pool complex once - the kids admitted they had been spoilt by Dubai's waterparks! Also we have a pool (remember we live in the south of France where it is normal! ) so they don't see it as anything special!

It was a perfect time with the family - lots of laughter and good humour!

For anyone heading out to one of the Eurocamp sites this summer - enjoy!

We are veggie and live here so I know what you mean! There is a reasonably sized supermarket just up the road - they actually had a good range of veggie burgers in the freezer!

Thanks It is a bit of a hidden injury so he doesn't get much sympathy! O, on the other hand, does because he has a scar above his eyebrow (they crashed into each other at 30kmh

Thank you - I know Eurocamp has come up quite a bit of late so hopefully it will help someone! Plus I love having a record of our trips!

Loved your report. I have a friend who has holidayed at this site quite a few years in a row in both mobile homes and motorhomes/tents. She always says how good it is.
