As part of our summer-long partnership with Eurocamp, we asked them to share their favourite city break destinations. Here’s what they had to say:
You don’t have to coop yourself up in a nondescript city centre hotel when you’ve set your heart on exploring Europe’s most thrilling cities. Why make do with a slim balcony - or no outside space at all - when you can sightsee by day, and enjoy all the fun of the parc when you’re done? That sounds like the perfect blend to us. Which is why plenty of our most thrilling parcs more than match the magic of Paris, Rome, Barcelona and scores of other fascinating cities, from Bilbao to Zadar!
Want to enjoy the magic of Disneyland? We have a parc within an easy drive. What about the gorgeous old towns of Croatia, with their cobbled streets and centuries-old palaces? We know just the place. And when it comes to Italian flair, can you beat Venice, Verona, Rome or Florence? Take a city break with Eurocamp and get under the skin of some of Europe’s most fascinating towns and cities.
Koningshof, South Holland, Netherlands
Stay at this cosy, friendly parc and all the fun of Amsterdam is an easy drive away. Explore the city’s fabled flea markets, take a canal tour of its must-see sights, and immerse yourself in the city’s world-class museums and galleries. Yes, it’s a busy city, but Amsterdam is all about relaxing strolls and bike rides. Back on parc, dive into your pools before planning tomorrow’s big city adventures.
Domaine Des Ormes, Brittany, France
There are so many cities and towns worth exploring close to delightful Domaine Des Ormes it’s hard to know which to choose first. St Malo’s impressive walls rise vertically from the coast, protecting a warren of medieval streets lined with shops and restaurants. But for the ultimate medieval treat, Mont Saint Michel, topped by its vertiginous chapel, is an absolute must. Dinan’s winding streets are like something from a folklore tale. Your parc is simply magical too: with its huge indoor and outdoor aquatic centre at its core.
Marina di Venezia, Venetian Riviera, Italy
Can you ever, really, say you’ve ‘done’ Venice? We don’t think so. This enchanting lagoon city - once the heart of a mighty empire - rewards return trips with new surprises, and new favourite spots. Whether this is your first time, or just your latest time: Venice is a city that will cast a spell on you. As will this lovely parc, a boat-ride across the lagoon. With a tangle of slides and an array of pools, and terrific entertainment, the enchanting city might have some stiff competition.
