Eurocamp La Croix du Vieux Pont Campsite, Paris

Back in May we very excitedly set off for our first family holiday to France. We were staying at a Eurocamp Camp site – La Croix du Vieux Pont Campsite, Berny-Rivière, Paris.

The camp site was awesome and had everything we could have wished for. The only sad part was that it rained. Every. Single. Day. That didn’t stop us though, we had a brilliant holiday. You can read about our actual accommodation here.

At La Croix du Vieux Pont Campsite there is a small supermarket with a lovely fresh bakery, a couple of restaurants and a pub on site, as well as a fantastic swimming pool complex, man made beach, boating lake and acres of beautiful grounds to explore.

The site is a short, flat walk into the pretty village of Vic Sur Aisne where there is a market on certain days, a couple of cafes, bars and shops. We loved it because it felt like a ‘real’ French village, which was lovely to experience. There is an awful lot of history in the area relating particularly to WWI which looked fascinating, the lady in the Tourist Information shop spoke excellent English and knew so much about it all. We would have loved more time to explore, particularly as my teen bro and sis have learnt all about it in school.

The campsite was an easy couple of hours drive from Calais – Mummy had never driven either to France, or this far before, and she was absolutely fine. In fact, she really enjoyed it! Our Sat Nav got us there with no problems at all.

Our Eurocamp holiday included ferry crossings from Dover to Calais, and our mobile home for a week.

We used the site as a base to visit Disney Land Paris, it is about an hour and a half drive away, and again, it was an easy drive. There are coach trips from the camp site too. We also visited a beautiful Chateaux nearby, which was a memorable experience for us all.

Our tips for visiting:

*If you want to visit DLP with the coach trip, book immediately. The trips booked up very quickly.

*WiFi was only reliable in the pub, and cost €3 per day, per device. There is no way round this as the staff physically pop the password into your device at the bar. It added up to

*Pop in the bakery early as they sell out of fresh baked goodies quickly and there was usually a queue.

*In Vic Sur Aisne there was a large supermarket – you need a car ideally to stock up, but we did see people walking. It is sign posted and a lot cheaper.

There is so much to do at this site, it is just such a shame that we had so much rain that we didn’t feel like trying out the outdoor ones. The website has a full list of everything that is on offer. The Eurocamp staff were great, very friendly and available in a dedicated cabin.

We are really hoping to visit France again this year and would definitely look at going back to La Croix du Vieux Pont Campsite with Eurocamp.

  6. Oh it’s such a shame about the weather, but it’s great that you still had a great time. I am seriously considering this for a holiday for Boo as I think she would love it. I just need to get my passport sorted!

  7. Sites have certainly changed over the years and in general they continue to get better in what is a very competitive market

  8. I would love to go somewhere like this. We don’t drive though :(

  18. This was such a nice family time! Thanks for sharing with us :) Now I want to go on a mini vacay!

  19. I LOVE Eurocamp, I highly recommend their campsite Sportcamp Woferlgut in Austria. Amazing facilities and stunning scenery.

  20. Ah this looks soo cool! I wish I could go to Paris again, but I do I will definitely consider this place!

  21. This place looks amazing, looks much more upmarket than what we have here. Sounds like it could be quite difficult if you don’t drive though

  22. I’ve always wanted to go on a Euro Camp holiday with my family, definitely something to consider after reading this review.

  23. This camp site looks amazing!

    The first time I traveled to France we drove from Calais to Vaison-la-Romaine in Provence. I was so surprised to see camp site after camp site on out day and a half journey.

    We made it our mission to go camping in France but unfortunately it’s never worked out that way. But I’ve spent plenty of time in France and just love the culture.

    And it goes without saying that each time we return from a trip I’m a few pound heavier. But never mind, the delicious bread, cheese, wine and cured meats are so worth the extra days in the gym.

    Thanks for sharing this great experience.

  24. I loved Eurocamp when mine were younger and we did camping hols in France when I was a teen as well. What a shame the weather wasn’t better – thank goodness for the indoor pool!
