New acquisitions of Premium campsites by EUROPEAN CAMPING GROUP

Apr 19, 2022 | Press release

EUROPEAN CAMPING GROUP, the European market leader for camping holidays, announces that it has finalised the acquisition of three premium campsites: Le Château de Fonrives, a 5* campsite with 390 pitches in the Lot-et Garonne / Het Genieten, 346 pitches in the Netherlands / Le Château La Forêt, a 5* campsite with 271 pitches in the Vendée. These three campsites will join the Marvilla Parks brand, which regroups all the campsites belonging to the European Camping Group: a total of 36 sites in France and the Netherlands. The Group will operate the first two sites for the 2022 season and the third in 2023.

Alain CALMÉ, President of EUROPEAN CAMPING GROUP (ECG), says “we are delighted to have finalised these three transactions. They are all very attractive campsites, and we plan further investment to ensure they become first-class destinations that meet the expectations of our French and international clientele. These acquisitions are the perfect illustration of our Group’s strategy and vocation: to offer premium holidays to families from all over Europe. I am also pleased to have established such an excellent relationship with the previous management of each site, they are all first-rate independent operators whom I respect for their professionalism. We have worked closely with each of them to find tailor-made solutions that meet their personal situation”.

Philippe de TRÉMIOLLES, the Group’s Managing director, adds “these three transactions fit perfectly into our development strategy, after our financial resources were consolidated by the arrival of our new shareholder PAI Partners towards the end of 2021. Following two seasons that were affected by Covid, we are now seeing strong demand from European consumers for mobile home holidays. We intend to accelerate our development and conclude 5 to 10 similar deals over the next 12 months”.
