Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • Take the pick of the flicks at the cinema or sip a drink in the stable bar

  • Take the kids on a pony ride or pop to the driving range

  • Splash about in one of the three pools

Fancy staying in the grounds of a French château? Then why not make the most of a short hop over the Channel and settle into Domaine de Drancourt, a relaxing parc nestled in the gardens of a château. The area surrounding the parc was made to be explored, so if you’re a keen walker or cyclist be prepared to get out and discover authentic French countryside. Back on parc, there’s a mini golf course and three modest pools. Or why not spend the evening in the stables? Don’t worry, these have been specially converted into a small bar.

Pools

This parc has a modest complex featuring an all-weather family pool with retractable roof so you don’t need to keep an eye on the sky. For those hot summer days, the outdoor family pool offers two waterslides that the kids will love as well as a smaller, shallow pool specially designed with kids in mind. The complex also boasts a number of sunloungers for you to while away the day and really unwind.

    We only spent one night at this campsite. No one warned us that cash was not accepted and credit cards had to be purchassed at the office which was then closed. It meant a trip into Valery when we were tired to get some sort of meal.

    A good holiday, only let down by the weather (and being in a tent!). As the weather was not good and I have two toddlers, I asked for an upgrade to a caravan. I was told that there were none available. There were a lot of empty caravans on the site, I realise that they were not all Eurocamp caravans, but I did wonder if it would have been possible;e to find us one, given our circumstances.

    Booked as a late break this was a good value little holiday. However it did suffer from a distinct end of season feeling not helped by the unseasonal weather. The very tired soft furnishings of the mobile home (3 bed Eclipse) and general atmosphere of the parc contributed to this.
