We stay with our children in a Eurocamp mobile home at Marina D’Erba Rossa campsite on the east coast of Corsica
Marina D’Erba Rossa, Ghisonaccia, Eurocamp
Where is it?
Marina D’Erba Rossa is on a beach on the quiet eastern coast of Corsica, halfway down the island, five minutes from the town of Ghisonaccia.
What is it?
A fairly big holiday park with mobile homes and camping pitches.
Is it family friendly?
Yes, family holidays are the key market here. There is a good new playground, nice swimming pool, table tennis, mini golf and pool tables (for an extra charge). It is on a lovely big beach, which has a volleyball net. There is even a small animal ‘zoo’ with ostriches and llamas.
There’s also a children’s club and other entertainment.
The mobile homes
Our Esprit mobile home was compact and a little dated but really well positioned in the corner of the park next to the animals.
It had three bedrooms (one double, two twins) which was great for our family of four, having six people in here would have been a squeeze.
The kitchen had a hob, microwave, fridge-freezer, plates, cutlery etc. There was no oven or dishwasher.
There’s a shower room and separate toilet, no television, decking and a gas barbecue outside.
Food and drink
As well as the self-catering option, this site has a lovely restaurant with outdoor seating too. The menu is dominated by pizzas, luckily they were delicious. There’s also a takeaway option.
There is a shop selling essentials and a bakery, which was open from 7.30am to 9.30am, selling freshly cooked baguettes, croissants and pain au chocolat.
Ghisonaccia is a quiet town a few miles from the site but has all the shops you need including a large supermarket. There is also a Spar store near to the site.
There are beaches along the coast including one with a huge pine forest.
It is an hour’s drove to the bigger cities of Bastia and Porto Vecchio.
The historic roman site of Aleria is a 20-minute drive.
*The swimming pool – not too cold and big enough to have plenty of fun.
*The beach and its location, accessed from next to the pool. It is a big, sandy beach.
*The outdoor play park/playground has new equipment which our two loved.
*There’s a raised netted area in another part of the park with trampolines and a zip wire.
*There is an indoor games/arcade room and gym.
*The restaurant is lovely, although didn’t open until 7pm.
*Having a small animal park/zoo on site was a nice touch although the peacock was a bit noisy, waking us up in the morning!
