If you follow me on social media, you will know that in May half term we traveled to Italy with Eurocamp. When I am booking a holiday I like to know what I am going to get. If I have already booked a holiday, I like to know what I need (or don’t need) to take with me. I therefore thought it would be helpful to do a review of the Vista 3 bed 2 bath mobile home that we stayed in.
Eurocamp have a selection of mobile homes to stay in. This is one of the older styles and was the main type of Eurocamp mobile home currently at our parc Marina De Venizia.
On arrival the mobile home appeared clean (although I personally always give all washing up a rinse through myself) and we were left with the bedding and towels we had ordered. We were also given two welcome packs. Whilst the boys loved the food in the main welcome pack, I didn’t feel it really helped much as it was geared to a family of 4. The essentials pack however, containing washing up liquid and cleaner was really helpful.
I feel I should point out that it depends where you are holidaying, on the bedding you are provided with if you order it. At the time of booking the lady said she thought it was sheets and blankets at this parc and she was right. Some will have duvets, but I guess the hot temperatures here mean you don’t really want those! We didn’t even use the blankets. We did use the air conditioning.
I have made a short video showing you around our mobile home as we arrived. Paying particular attention to the kitchen cupboards. Everyone needs to know they have wine glasses and a cafetiere right?
The mobile home really did have everything we needed – although a sharper sharp knife and ice cube tray would have been good. I even found a hairdryer under the sink on the last day of the holiday. There was lots of storage and once we had put the empty cases in the back of the hire car then there was enough room.
I have to say that I really appreciated having two bathrooms. It just made it that little bit nicer than us all sharing one.
The old plastic table on the decking could do with replacing but other than that there really wasn’t anything to complain about. When we had an issue with the sofa (whilst trying to look for some of middle mans lost Lego) the maintenance man came to fix it within half an hour.
In short, our Vista accommodation met our needs. It felt a little cramped at times and was slightly tired looking, but that didn’t take away from our experience. The boys loved staying in a mobile home and the parc we chose was fantastic. The hot weather meant that we were able to enjoy eating on the decking and it also gave my husband and I somewhere to go when the boys were in bed. I would have no hesitation in booking this type of accommodation again.
We received a weeks stay in the Vista mobile home courtesy of Eurocamp. They asked us to review our holiday on A Strong Coffee and have not asked us to write this post.
