Eurocamp Azure Plus (formerly the Avant) Review

Review Contents
The Avant is a great mobile home

It’s fresh, clean and modern. We loved having the added extras and the outdoor space really sells it to us.

Eurocamp Azure Mobile Home

The Avant mobile home is one of Eurocamps high-end holiday homes. This weekend, the first weekend of June, we had the opportunity to stay in one at sequoia parc campsite in the Charentes Maritime region of France.

With more of a chalet feel than that of a mobile home, this caravan is light, bright and super airy. It has a real Summer holiday feel to it thanks to its full length doors and windows. And it has been designed in a way that maximises living space.

New name for 2020! The Avant becomes the Azure plus

The Avant mobile home is having a rebrand for 2020 and will now be called the Azure plus. Therefore, I will use Azure plus and Avant interchangeably through this post so you know exactly what I’m talking about.

We’ve done a little video tour which you can find at the bottom. But, for our full written review, keep reading. 

 

Pros of The Azure plus Mobile Home

We’ve stayed in nearly every type of Eurocamp mobile home, and this was one of our favourites.

  • Clean, modern and fresh
  • We loved the added extras like the dishwasher
  • The outdoor decking space was lovely
  • Large pitch size
  • Great spacious living area
  • Large queen sized bed
  • Duvets and pillows provided
  • Air Con (which was definitely needed during our stay)
  • Light, bright and airy feel
  • Good amount of bedroom storage
  • generous amount of plug sockets

Cons of The Azure plus Mobile Home

There’s little to complain about here!

 

  • Lack of space in the bathroom
  • Lack of kitchen storage space
  • Microwave is situated on high shelf which could be dangerous

Tour Of The Azure plus Mobile Home

The Azure plus (formerly the Avant) 3 bedroom model has a design not dissimilar to a Eurocamp Vista model, with 2 sets of patio doors and full length windows the living space has ensured brightness. The bedrooms and bathrooms are centered around the living space and to see a full tour you can watch the video below.

Bunk bedroom

The bunk room was the first room to the left as we walked in. It’s pretty small. However I imagine most people that would be using it are pretty small too! The bunk bed was made of sturdy wood and even though I’m 7 month pregnant it took my weight easily and I felt really safe sat on the top. Bedding wise, we were provided, as standard, pillows and duvets. 

There’s a fair amount of storage in the room. As you walk in you have a full length wardrobe to the left with room to hang up and fold up clothes. Then, if you walk to the far end of the room there is another small shelving unit. 

There was only one plug socket (european standard) in the room and this was situated just under the bedroom window. There was 2 large coat hooks a good sized mirror and the window came with curtains, mosquito blinds as well as a blackout blind.

Bunk Room Features

  • 2 sets of storage space
  • 1 EU standard plug socket
  • Mirror
  • 2 coat hooks
  • Mosquito and blackout blinds
  • Pillows and duvets (linen to book separately or bring your own)

Twin bedroom

The twin room has a lot more space than the bunk room and also features a bed which can be folded up and slotted underneath the other bed for extra space or to add in a cot. Like the bunk room there were 2 sets of storage available. There was the main full length wardrobe near the room entrance which also had an extra chair in. Then, there was some overhead cupboard space above the beds. 

In between the beds there was a small nightstand/bedside table which is perfect for holding a cup of juice and underneath it was the rooms only plug socket. 

As standard the windows also came with mosquito blinds, blackout blinds and curtains and the bed came with pillows and duvets.

Twin room Features

  • 2 beds – 1 that folds under
  • Spacious
  • 1 plug socket
  • Mirror 
  • 2 coat hooks
  • Pillows & duvets

Double Bedroom

The double bedroom features a large queen sized bed – so if you’re bringing your own linen, make sure you pack the right size. Unlike some mobile homes there is plenty of space to walk around the outside of the bed even with the larger bed. It’s great for pregnant people like me who are currently struggling to maneuver anywhere!

There’s 2 plug sockets and 2 night stands on each side of the bed and a bedside lamp above your head so you can read a book in bed. Plus, there’s a main light switch in the middle so nobody has to get back up to switch it off when they’ve forgotten. 

Storage space wise, we had a large double wardrobe to the right hand side of our bed and some overhead cupboards with plenty of room to store our belongings in. 

As with all bedrooms – as standard we had our pillows, duvets and window with both blinds and curtains.

  • Mosquito and blackout blinds
  • Duvet and pillows
  • Large amount of walk around space

Bathroom

The bathroom wasn’t one of the largest we’ve had, but it was functional and had everything we required. The shower cubicle was clean, basic and the water pressure was good enough for hair washing.

The sink area had a mirror with shelf for hand washing and teeth brushing and underneath was a small cupboard which contained a hairdryer. We used the hairdryer in the bathroom as there was plug socket just the other side of the door.

The toilet was clean and we had no problems with it during our stay and there was more than enough room to sit down comfortably. It was also in the same room as the shower and sink which means no kids crossing the mobile with grubby hands ready to wash. 

My only complaint about the bathroom is that it was just a little to small for drying in. I like to be able to flail my arms around and get the towel in all those places but it was slightly cramped. Maybe a smaller sink area would have solved this? 

Bathroom features

  • Large sink
  • Mirror
  • Toilet
  • Shower
  • Plug socket
  • Hairdryer
  • Black out blind
  • 2 towel hooks
  • Anti slip bath mat

Living Area

The living area was large and spacious and featured a really big sofa which could also be pulled out into a sofa bed. If you were to remove the sofa cushions you would find under the long side a sofa bed and under the short side some extra space for storage – we find this space great for hiding away our suitcases when we stay somewhere for a long time.

There was a dining room table which could be adjusted to make it smaller or larger and when we arrived had 4 chairs around it, although there were an extra 2 sat outside. 

We found 2 plug sockets situated under the nearly full length mirror and behind the sofa was a nice large window with curtains. 

To the side of the sofa there was some extra shelving space where the cleaners had neatly placed the wine glasses and tumblers. 

At the entrance to the mobile home, above the first set of doors, there was an aircon unit that, due to the 32degree temperatures during our stay at Sequoia parc, we took full advantage of. 

Living Area features:

  • Extendable dining table
  • Mirror
  • Large sofa
  • Pull out Sofa bed
  • Under sofa storage
  • Aircon (may not be available everywhere)
  • Shelf
  • 2 EU plug sockets
  • Reasonable sized living space

Kitchen

I love the light in the kitchen. Thanks to the large full length windows and patio doors this area is really bright. One thing I hate is a dark miserable kitchen. One of the reasons we booked a high end mobile home like the avant was for the added extras and the kitchen is where they all come into play.

Firstly there’s a dishwasher. That’s right, a DISHWASHER. Who’d a thought it – on a camping holiday! There’s also a toaster, electric kettle and a coffee maker. Those who have previously holidayed with Eurocamp you’ll know the standard gas whistle kettle can be a little annoying, especially when you’re trying to make coffee while everyone’s in bed. An electric kettle is definitely something to get excited about. 

The kitchen was sparkling clean and felt really nice and fresh. Our hob and oven were sparkling. Both the hob and oven are gas powered and there’s an extractor fan with light above. We also had a pizza sized oven tray, as well as the normal one. I’m not sure if this was standard in an Avant or if we were just lucky, but it was perfect for a lunchtime pizza picnic.

The kitchen cupboards were fully stocked with kitchenware and all the necessary goods but it did leave very little room to store your food items. Some shuffling of items could help make a small amount of space, but really they could have done with an extra cupboard or too. 

To the end of the kitchen we had a full sized fridge/freezer, a microwave and a small hidden area to store the sweeping brush and mop. There were also 2 plug sockets near here which we used for phone charging and kettle using. 

Kitchen Features

  • Patio doors opening straight from decking to kitchen
  • Clean, reasonable workspace
  • Gas hob and oven
  • Fridge and microwave
  • Fully stocked invent with cleaning utensils
  • Coffee maker
  • Dishwasher
  • Toaster
  • Electric kettle
  • 2 plug sockets

Outdoors

One thing I love about these higher end/newer mobile home models is the outside space. Not only do they feature a covered canopy decking but the the outdoor furniture is so much classier. Our decking at Sequoia parc was partly covered and partly open, although our pitch was quite shaded anyway. We had a decking gate which seemed really secure and childproof and we had so.much.SPACE.

Our pitch was massive. 

There was enough room to park our car, lie out the sun loungers and still have some green space to play with.

Our Avant accommodation came with a gas bbq although we didn’t get a chance to use it, an airer, 4 chairs and a table, relaxing chairs, a small bin and sun loungers. The covered canopy made sitting outside nice in all weather types especially when the sun was blazing hot.

The reason we booked the 3 bed Avant mobile is because we wanted to maximise our living space and take advantage of the added extras included. With loads more features than a normal mobile home, here’s what we found great about our Avant:

  • Dishwasher
  • Coffee maker
  • Toaster
  • Electric Kettle
  • Good amount of storage
  • Queen sized bed
  • Large part covered decking
  • Gas bbq

Eurocamps Azure and Azure plus Types:

There are 3 types of Azure available, depending on the campsites you book at and the requirements for your family.

  • 3 Bedroom Azure
  • 2 Bedroom Azure
  • 3 Bedroom Azure compact
  • 2 Bedroom Wheelchair Adapted

And for 2020 all previous Avant mobile homes will now be renaming to Azure plus 

There are 2 types of Azure plus mobile home. We stayed in the 3 bed version but there is also a two bed version. It’s also worth noting that dimensions, layout and decor can vary between mobile homes and not all will look exactly the same as ours. Some may be mirrored, have the kitchen on the other side, different style curtains, lights, etc – but all extra features like the dishwasher and toaster should all still be included. 

Other Eurocamp Accommodations

We’ve stayed in so many types of Eurocamp mobile home now it’s hard to say which is our favourite, but this Avant is definitely up there. The other high end holiday home, we’re yet to try is an Aspect but it’s definitely on our future list. 

We’ve also recently stayed in the mid-range Azure mobile home, which was brand new last year and you can read our review of it here. 

Other mobile home accommodations include vistas, classics, esprits and espaces. But if you want a more authentic camping experience you can do what we recently did and stay in one of their classic tents or even, glamp in one of their safari tents. 

As of 2020 Eurocamp will be rebranding the names of some of their current mobile homes and now Espaces and Esprits will now become either comforts, comfort xl, classic xl or standard classics…

Review Conclusion

4.5/5

The Azure plus (formerly the Avant) is a great mobile home. It’s fresh, clean and modern.

We loved having the added extras and the outdoor space really sold it to us.

I love that the main bedroom is quite spacious and that we had a really large bed, but I do wish the rest of the holiday home had some extra space too.

My complaints are with the size of the bathroom and lack of storage space in the kitchen, but really, these are only small complaints and everything else to do with our stay in here was perfect.
