Our half term break to France and Disneyland Paris!

We have been back a week now, but I am finding it hard to get back into normal routine! Hence why it has taken so long to write this post!

I will firstly give you a little background on this holiday. I won it! Yes, you read it right, I won it! As you know I love to enter competitions, but never did I imagine that I would win a holiday! The prize was a holiday up to the value of £1,500 with Eurocamp. 

We had never been on a Eurocamp holiday before, in fact, before going on this holiday I probably wouldn't have contemplated it. But we loved it! We stayed on a site called La Croix Du Vieux Pont, which is in a town called Berny-Rivière, France. We chose to stay in a 'Vista' holiday home, which I will admit to being worried about. It's essentially a static caravan and in the past we have had a bad experience with staying in a caravan so vowed never to do it again! However we were plesantly surprise when we arrived to a warm, modern, and comfortable holiday home. All of our fears went out of the window and in fact we loved it so much that we have now booked to go to Holland with Eurocamp next year staying in the same accommodation! 

The site itself was great, it had a lovely pool, bowling, AstroTurf pitches, evening entertainment, a bakery/shop, takeaway, restaurant and bar. Plus loads more to explore. The children absolutely loved it! 

The local area had loads of War History, which I wish I had researched before we went, I think we need to go back just to explore it all! 

Disneyland Paris was just over an hour away so we also used the holiday as an excuse (as if our Disney mad family needed one?!) to visit. It was Millies first visit to Disneyland Paris, Chester's third, and our first one driving. It was also our first time visiting in Halloween season so we were all very excited! 

We managed to cram so much into our holiday, I think we need to go on another one to relax! I am going to write some separate blog posts about certain aspects of our visit to Disneyland Paris as I have some tips. But in the mean time here is a little bit of what we got up to.... 

Daredevil Chester went on as many fast rides and Rollercoaster as he could! 

Millie got to meet her hero Jack Skellington...

Chester finally got to meet Jafar! 

Millie got to have lunch with the princesses... 

we all enjoyed the Halloween extras and theme around the parks...

And lastly, following in her brothers footsteps, Millie discovered and fell in love with the Slinky Dog Ride!

 Have you ever holidayed with Eurocamp? What are your thoughts, I would love some tips for next time!
