Yes, there are and the long weekend is perfect for, for example, a short trip with the motorhome together with RV cover class C. If you prefer to travel a little longer, you can escape this year with only 4 vacation days a whole 8-10 days with the motorhome in the warmth. Just add the days before or after Easter and you can relax a little longer. Whether it’s a road trip or just a specific campsite – sights, adventures and breathtaking views can be found in each of the countries presented.
Easter with the motorhome – but where to?
Especially popular for camping in April is the south. Whether Italy, Spain, or Croatia, we have put together a selection of European destinations with campsites and RV sites that are already open from March and April.
Spain: A sea of flowers
Easter with the motorhome is especially worthwhile in Spain. Because at the beginning of April, when the Easter bells and tulips slowly open their flowers, the Spanish landscape already shines in full bloom. At temperatures around 20°C, nothing stands in the way of an Easter breakfast outdoors. Even if the bathing season at 15°C water temperature is only heralded by the very hard contemporaries, the lush blooming nature invites you to walks and bike rides.
Especially during Holy Week, Spain is an interesting destination. The so-called Semana Santa is the most important week of the year for the Catholic country. Easter processions take place everywhere and decorated figures of saints are carried through the streets.
Our tip: Rent a motorhome or camper now and explore Spain’s spring on your own. So you are independent and can enjoy the blossoms along the coast from Barcelona to Valencia to Malaga or discover the interior such as Seville, Granada, and Madrid.
Campsites and pitches in Spain:
Camping Resort Playa Montroig
Located south of Barcelona, the campsite on the Costa Daurada offers everything you need for a relaxing family holiday with a motorhome.
Marjal Costa Blanca
A five-star campsite located directly on the Parc Natural El Fondó.
Along the beautiful coast of Croatia
Thanks to its location on the Mediterranean Sea, it is also mild in Croatia at Easter in early summer. The slogan of the Croatian Tourist Board “The Mediterranean as it used to be” promises holidays far away from mass tourism and crowded beaches. The flowering Adriatic coast invites you to long walks and already in March, you can drink your coffee under flowering almond trees.
Our tip: Look for wild asparagus instead of Easter eggs. It grows on the edges of the meadows and in the undergrowth along the Croatian coast. When the wild asparagus season officially kicks off on 25 March, the locals are drawn to meditative asparagus hunting in the field. Also in the taverns, you can enjoy this regional specialty.
Since the spring weather in the country of 1000 islands is mild but can be quite volatile, we recommend that you travel by motorhome along the Adriatic coast. So you are flexible and can simply move on in bad weather.
Campsites and pitches in Croatia:
This eco campsite is located on the island of Krk directly on the crystal clear Adriatic Sea and is surrounded by lush forests. Here, too, you will find the perfect mix of Mediterranean natural beauty and historical sights.
The Slatina pitch is located on the island of Cres and offers an extra for all dog lovers: “Camping cane”, a project that aims to facilitate the coexistence of dog owners, dogs, and dogless guests. So there is a dog beach, dog showers, and dog training.

Italy: Whale watching on Liguria’s coast
In Italy, too, spring awakens a little earlier and more reliably than here. Especially charming is the spring awakening in Liguria. On the beach promenades of the Italian Riviera, you can enjoy your espresso in the sun and with a little luck spot one of the Ligurian dolphins. Already a few meters further inland, the ascent into the hinterland begins, where the mountain flowers slowly begin to bloom. This geographical peculiarity makes up the charm of the landscape and invites you to numerous hiking and cycling tours.
But Tuscany is also a popular destination for campers with its wine country and small winding streets. Breathtaking views are offered here, where you like to sit in front of the motorhome for a while and enjoy the view.
Our tip: Here it is worth taking 4 days of vacation after Easter and thus 10 days at the end of March, beginning of April with the motorhome through the hills of Tuscany, away from undiscovered bays in the south of Italy to the island of Sardinia with its beautiful beaches.
Campsites and pitches in Italy:
Here the name says it all. Camping Delfino is located close to the beach and in the immediate vicinity of the Gallinara Natural Park. Dolphin excursions start from the nearby town of Andora in the summer months.
