Our Eurocamp Holiday Part two

Eurocamp part two
It’s been a week today since we returned home from our first holiday in France with Eurocamp and I’ll not lie, but I’ve been feeling the blues. The holiday blues that is. It turns out as much as I didn’t like the French food and their little weird ways of really odd opening times of their shops etc, I really loved the place. It was a truly beautiful part of the country we chose to visit and if I could, I’d take us all back in a heartbeat.

Our first Eurocamp experience could not of been better and I know for a fact we’ll be going again some day! But I wonder which one of the amazing destinations we’ll choose next. However for now? I’m happy with the memories we made at La Croix Du Vieux Pont, Paris.

Ellie pestered me all week to take her canoeing. So finally one afternoon the darling man and I put Jacob & Annabelle on the super fun looking bouncy castle {with slide! Seriously…I wanted a go to!} as Ellie and I hopped into a canoe. She was so keen to learn and I was happy to teach her. She took to it like a duck to water {excuse the pun!} and I was so proud of her.

My pokemon loving children {yes, even the toddler!} loved the Pikachu ride-on and as you can see Annabelle took the main seat. Naturally.

We hired out bikes quite a few times over our stay at Eurocamp and we absolutely loved it. There was such a great selection of bikes that were suitable for everyone. Even the super little ones too! We’d never used a bike trailer before and Annabelle really enjoyed it & I have to admit, we all did.

One thing we did on holiday which is something we rarely get the chance to do at home, and that’s enjoy meals together as a family. These mealtimes were so dear to me and I truly cherished every moment of each one.

Going on holiday with a toddler is/was a stressful business. So her tantrums were present every single day and even in the corridors of the local laundrette.

We didn’t realise the parc has a soft play area until we’d been there for like….4 days! How daft are we! But we were so pleased when we did find it as Annabelle really enjoyed it and it was only three euros or something for her to have an hours play.

While the darling man sat with Annabelle in soft play it meant that I could take the kids off for activities for older children. So we indulged in the Laser Tag game they had on and the bowling alley. The laser tag was so much FUN! I cannot even tell you how much fun I had in there! So much so I wanted to go in again….and again….and again! The bowling was fun too and I’m ashamed to say that I got thrashed by my 9 & 6yr olds! I think they hustled me!

One night during our stay we visited the Macao beach restaurant and I have to admit it was lovely to not have to cook for an evening!

Annabelle is going through a wee phase of getting us all to copy her in whatever she does, which is mostly always little dance moves. Jazz hands, twirls, leg pats, funny faces, etc. So even from the confinements of her high chair, in a busy restaurant, we had to copy her! Such fun and she really loves that we all join in with her.

Being a cloth Mum on holiday isn’t as hard as noncloth users, or even new cloth users would think. It’s a breeze and we’ve had two holidays were we’ve used cloth as we’ve not had any bother and our airer looks pretty too. Win!

We went on a hunt to find one of the mini station, Kids club that the parc have on regularly to help Buddy Bear celebrate his 3rd birthday.

The weather was great for half of it, and a little rain for the other days but that didn’t stop us having fun or my freckles getting a bit of a top up.

We hired out pedal boats, as much to the disappointment of my young son Jacob there {his smile had to be bribed out of him!}. He’s a bit of a fraidy-cat bless him and thought we’d all sink or something equally dramatic. But he ended up enjoying it just like I assured him he would.

Jacob absolutely loved the bungy trampoline and he was even super brave and gave the guy the OK for him to do a ‘big jump’ and a big jump he did!!

How insanely dorky is this photo! I love it, definitely one to be framed at home!

So, I’ve showered you guys in photos {I’ve still my underwater camera to get developed yet so hopefully if they turn out I’ll share those at some point!}, now it’s time for a little video of the park. Bare in mind I’m new to this travel blogger lark, it’s certainly something I want to do more of and I want my video techniques to improve, so I think I’ll be on the hunt for a waterproof go pro for our next holiday!! But for now…here’s a little peek at where we stayed.

I’d just like to say a HUGE thank you to Eurocamp for having us! We had the best time and I look forward to visiting more Eurocamp parcs with my family in the future!

    Looks like a great holiday. Lovely photos. Once upon a time I worked at a Eurocamp kids club in France. I had such a fun summer. Those camp sites are great!

    The Mother says – Many years ago when I was a teenager, we went with Eurocamp for our family holiday in the Summer. We loved them, especially the French sites. We always had such fun. #MMWBH

    Glad you and the kids had a good time. Eurocamps are great places for kids, especially if they’re in any way outdoors-y. We went to the one in Tuscany with the boys before Kara was born and they loved it. Although we haven’t been back since (we now hire a big villa with friends instead), we will certainly do so some time.
