Eurocamp company history

Our Story

Let us take you back to 1973. Pink Floyd release Dark Side of the Moon, the first Pizza Hut opened, and our first customers experienced the fun and freedom of a Eurocamp holiday.

The first Eurocamp holiday

It all started so holidaymakers could experience the joy and liberation of outdoor holidays in France, without the hassle of carrying their own equipment.

So we found a parc in Brittany, pitched some extra-roomy tents with comfy beds and self-catering facilities, and welcomed our first guests.

Now you’ll find us on the best holiday parcs across Europe, by beaches, countryside, mountains, rivers and lakes. And millions of families have discovered the benefits that Eurocamp holidays offer:

Eurocamp holidays

Secure parcs with plenty of
outdoor space to play...

Eurocamp holiday homes, accommodation, mobile homes, caravans

Spacious outdoor accommodation
with a few home comforts, too...

Eurocamp holidays

And, a world of adventure
waiting on your doorstep.
