Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • Explore the lovely seaside town of Houlgate

  • Take a dip one of the four pools Inc. slides and a covered pool

  • You must see all of the yachts at the prestigious town of Deauville

Broad sandy beaches, fascinating history and chic seaside towns, Normandy proves that you don’t have to travel too far to enjoy an out-of-this-world holiday. And at La Vallée, one of the premier parcs in Normandy, you can enjoy a glorious rural setting not far from one of those magnificent sandy beaches, too. The parc is scattered with flowering hedges and fruit trees, with some of the excellent facilities housed in a beautifully converted Norman building. There are four pools here too, one of which has a retractable roof and water slide. There’s also a well-equipped play area and an ‘animateur’ who arranges activities for the whole family, including discos in the games room.

    Heating should have been better in the caravan. (No gas fire and only one little electric heater). Also large gap at the top of the main door letting the wind blow in. Other than that we were pleased with the accommodation and the park.

    The overall holiday was fantastic so much so on the Sunday after we arrived back in the UK we booked again for the same park and are taking family with us next year. I would like to say Jack and Luke the couriers were amazing. so efficient checked in on us, gave us lots of advice on where to visit especially if the weather wasn't so good. We had a problem with our GAS oven for some reason I gave them a ring and within 20 minutes it was all sorted. I would like you to pass on our gratitude for giving us such a good holiday. They were a credit to eurocamp and if I could nominate them for employee of the month then they get my vote!

    thank you again looking forward to next year and hope it is as good as this.
