At the meeting of the Assembly of organization known as the "Leading Campings of Europe" held recently in Zell am See in Austria, a decision was made on the acceptance of new members of the elite organization that encompasses up to 32 of the best campsites in Europe, which now includes Valamar’s Lanterna Camp.slika.asp?slika=278

Lanterna camp, located in Poreč, was officially recognized by this elite organization based on the careful research of the quality of the camps which was conducted by one of the owners of the member camps and confirmed by the results compiled by Mystery Shopping. As a result, Croatia will now have two representatives as do Spain, the Netherlands and Austria.

As part of this prestigious achievement, the Director of Operations - Campsites in Valamar hotels & resorts, Mrs. Josipa Cvelić Bonifačić, made the following statement: "Out of a total of 21 thousand camps in Europe, only 32 are members of the Campings of Europe organization. For Valamar, being at the very top of the European level of quality, means not only strengthening its existing position on the market but also marks the possibility of branching out and establishing itself onto new markets. The most developed competition countries have but a few representatives in this organization such as France which of its 12 thousand camps has only 5 members in the organization (Denmark and Spain three and Austria and the Netherlands two). Now there are two Croatian camps in this prestigious group, Lanterna and Zaton, which confirms that Croatia has an exceptionally competitive and high quality European camping product. This quality has been recognized by our returning guests – in Slovenia two of our camps, Lanterna and Ježevac, recently received the "Best Camp of 2011" award as chosen by more than twenty thousand campers."
