La Croix du Vieux Pont Campsite & Eurocamp (A sort-of-Review)

At the La Croix du View Pont Campsite where we stayed, it wasn’t just Eurocamp (whose accommodations we used), there were other lovely accommodations as well.  In fact, probably the next time we go, we might try the others, just to know what it’s like.

While the little villa we stayed in was ample enough for a small family like ours, I had a few negatives:

  • The rooms were too small.  I’m a bit claustrophobic and the other rooms (though little T and I had the “double room”) felt way too small.  I’m wondering how a family with really tall kids would manage!
  • It looked a bit out-dated.  The cushions in the lounge/diner kept falling off and wouldn’t stay put.
  • The “clean” wasn’t done really well.  We found some not very pleasant things under the cushions.
  • My main peeve was the bathroom!  It was clean enough, but the shower kept falling off and was either too hot or too cold.

Other than that, it did feel like a home-away-from home.  My husband didn’t feel much of the negatives, so it could also be just me.  The place had everything you’d need from cooking utensils and even its own barbecue grill in the lawn, complete with deck-chairs.

On a positive note, I admire Eurocamp’s service and staff.  They were the best!  They were all accommodating and friendly, as soon as you report something, a young staff would hop on their bike and see to it right away.  One even left a really friendly/note when we were out, just to say that they dropped by and reminded us that we needed anything, there weren’t far away!  I think that’s what you call really good service.  Don’t you agree?

As for the campsite itself, La Croix du View Pont, certainly catered to families!  As mentioned, they have a man-made beach, water-activities, two swimming pools, and one had a slide.  A lovely Irish lady recommended the kiddie disco, apparently great for kids and grown-ups as well, though we didn’t have the chance to see it.  You could also rent bikes and have a day-out of biking around the camp and also the nearby villages.  Sadly, we weren’t able to do that either.

Little T does a “selfie” in a canoe ride.

Little T enjoys the trampoline.

And of course, we always came back to the man-made beach for some fun in the sand.

Not so sure whether Victor, little T’s inflatable dinosaur enjoyed being buried in the sand though.

Have you stayed at La Cruix du Vieux Pont Campsite and used Eurocamp’s accommodations too?

Did you like it?

    Looks like you had a brilliant time – I haven’t been to a Eurocamp but it looks ideal for families #countrykids

    sounds great Dean – i went on a eurocamp holiday as a kid and loved it! I think you always get niggles with places like that but as long as you still had a great time that’s the main thing! I would definitely love to take my boys x

    • You’re right! We did have a blast and will definitely go back to Eurocamp 🙂

    Even if the accommodation was a bit tired, the site itself sounds great. The man-made beach looks lovely and the photos of T playing in the sand are brilliant 🙂 Glad you had a good time x #CountryKids

    Looks so nice in there! I am a bit so into the sheets as well. They need to be clean. Other than that I can stomach anything. Sounds like a fun place. Havent been to any of Eurocamp but looking forward to seeing them in the future =) #countrykids

    • The sheets were fine actually. It was only when we found some dirt under the cushions that I found a bit unpleasant. But yes, it is a lovely, fun place to stay especially when you have little ones 😉

  5. Our favourite campsite so far is Le Clary Plage in the Vendee. Brilliant range of facilities, lovely beach a 5 minute walk away and the pool complex is to die for. Our three loved every minute in the pool with a variety of slides and a massive dragon themed water play area. Well worth a visit
