Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • Set in a beautiful area with views of the Pyrénées nearby

  • Dine out on history in Biarritz

  • Enjoy a stress-free transfer from Biarritz airport

If you’re looking for a comfortable base from which to explore one of France’s most engaging locations, then Le Ruisseau is the parc for you.

You’ll find it in an ideal location for an easy travel transfer after flying into Biarritz airport (it’s only 6 km away) and within reaching distance of a magnificent stretch of the Atlantic coast, perfect if you’ve got budding surfers in the family. Some road and rail noise can be heard on this parc. If famous beaches are your bag, Biarritz beach is 8 km away and it won’t be long before its town centre lures you. As an old Basque town, Biarritz enjoys a fascinating history that’s reflected in its unique Victorian architecture, while rows of fine restaurants will make your trip there satisfyingly tasty too. Back on parc you’ll find family-friendly facilities like an outdoor pool, complete with a water slide and kids’ water play area. Or why not try the indoor pool across the road that has a spa and balneo complex and is free in low season, with a small charge in July and August?.

    Very good holiday, but we combined Eurocamp with hotel nights and stays with friends. Difficult to rate above as we stayed at 2 parcs, one better than the other, so perhaps you can bear that in mind for others having 2 centre holidays.

    Beautiful area for a holiday, great beaches, a Californian surf culture, loads of very fit people dashing in and out of the water, lots of seafood in the restaurants and the beautiful Pyrenees to visit and walk in and a delicious ocean to swim in.

    Biarritz is decadent and lovely and Basque culture everywhere, St Jean de Luz is a great little town, if you don't mind the traffic jam to get there.

    Liz

    I had some trepidation visiting this park particularly with all the bad reviews. However, not all was bad the location was perfect, the Eurocamp rep was brilliant, we had a few problems and they were sorted very quickly. We were on the quite side of the campsite (the warm pool) so had to walk further to the activities, but this was not a problem. You can hear the train/road but got used to it. The mobile home was a good size. On the down side the park wasn't suitable for my children aged 12 and 15, too quiet. The pool was freezing, I have no idea what the park do with it but no exaggeration it was colder than the Atlantic.
