Camping in Europe
Traveling in Western Europe is usually an expensive pleasure. It does not matter whether you live in a European country and want to explore the neighboring countries, or you come from the other side of the world and want to try the taste of miracles that Europe can offer you, your expenses may exceed all expectations!
You should not deny yourself the pleasure of tasting wine from Tuscany, visiting the mountain peak of Jungfrau in Switzerland, pampering yourself in Saint-Tropez or fooling around at Euro Disney. How to get the most out of the holidays without harming the budget?
The biggest expense during the holidays is the payment of housing. You can significantly reduce costs by stopping at a holiday at campgrounds scattered throughout Europe (known as tourist camps).
Such holiday camps are often small villages with 2 and 3 bedroom houses, fully equipped beds, bathrooms and kitchens. Some of them even have terraces, so you can relax in the fresh air. The campsites offer a variety of parking and bases, depending on whether you come with a trailer, trailer or tent.
Near many campgrounds there are small markets and snack bars, as well as kiosks and even restaurants. Services and entertainment offered vary depending on where the campsite is located, but as a rule, there are always pools, tennis courts, play and football fields and game rooms at your disposal.
You will be amazed at how inexpensive it is. As a rough guide: here you have to pay 50 euros per day, compared with a minimum of 150 euros per night for a four-bed room in a two or three star hotel. Such savings over the long stay at the campsite will give you the opportunity to spend money on something that is really worth spending in Europe.
