Camping & mobile home holidays in Europe
We offer holidays in all those European places you love, all those countries which have everything you want in a holiday: mountains, rivers, lakes, beaches by the hundred, water sports of all kinds, walks, climbing & lots & lots of surfing.
We have holidays in Austria, Croatia, Corsica, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Spain, and Yurt camping holidays in France as well as a couple of other countries.
Wherever you travel with our partner companies you can be assured that all the accommodation is first class, the tent and mobile home pitches are neat, well tended and include car parking, loungers as well as outside tables and chairs.
We only represent UK based camping holiday companies who operate in Europe because they supply just what Brit holidaymakers want: 220/240 volt electrics so you can take your personal hairdryer etc without the need for any adaptors, proper tea & coffee cups rather than the tiny ones supplied by non UK based holiday companies and full inventories of everything you will need, including proper beds, for a wonderful holiday.
What we and our partner companies offer is a home from home experience.
If it’s tent camping you want then most if not all the major camping companies hire fully equipped tents – and fully equipped means proper beds, cooker, fridge, utensils. You need to contact the relevant company to see whether they supply bedding. Pristine clean shower and toilet blocks are always near to the tent areas.
For a somewhat more restful holiday – more expensive than tent camping – you will be more comfortable in one of the many different types of mobile home with proper beds, shower, toilet and fully fitted kitchen.
And don't forget the beaches! Beaches are the reason that so many of us visit European countries so finding a good one is of the utmost importance.
There are some super beaches around Corsica, more of the same on the coast of Italy and Spain, but the nearest are just across the Channel in France. You will find some great beaches in Normandy and if you wander down the West coast you will get more of the same in the Vendée, and the southern Vendée is perhaps where any decent surfing starts.
Go further down the West coast and the further south you go the better is the surfing until you reach Aquitaine where you can get 5 metre rollers on a regular basis and if you can't surf yet then there are more surf schools around there than you can poke a stick at.
Go around the corner to Languedoc-Roussillon and the French Riviera and all you will find is miles and miles of soft, golden sand.
Throughout our site we have added a local recipe to each page especially for our camping and mobile home customers who may want a quick and easy meal without spending ages around the stove. We hope you will enjoy what you see.
To start you off we have this typical French recipe for:
Pan seared steak au Poivre
4 small filet mignons, 1-inch thick
1 tablespoon cracked black peppercorns
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup beef broth
1/4 cup cognac (optional)
2 tablespoons butter, cut into 4 pieces
Pat each filet mignon dry with paper towels, then sprinkle each side with the pepper.
Heat a heavy skillet, preferably cast iron, on the stovetop over medium-high heat until a few drops of water dance across the surface.
Add the oil, then the steaks, and cook 3 to 4 minutes, adjusting the heat as necessary so the oil stays hot but does not smoke.
Turn the steaks and cook until small drops of red juice come to the surface, about 5 minutes for medium. Transfer to a platter and keep warm.
Add the broth to the skillet over high heat and scrape up any browned bits. Pour in the cognac (if desired). Boil 1 to 2 minutes to burn off the alcohol.
Remove the skillet from the heat. Whisk in the butter, one piece at a time, until melted. Pour the sauce over the steaks.
