Investment Years: 2006 & 2014

Sector: Tourism

European Camping Group is the European leader of mobile home holidays.

Montefiore Investment originally acquired a majority stake as part of a growth buy-out transaction on what was then Homair Vacances, alongside its founder. Between 2006 and 2014, Montefiore Investment supported the transformation of Homair Vacances from a French SME into a European leader in its market: company revenues and value increased by a factor of 10.

In 2014, Montefiore Investment re-invested in Homair Vacances as a strategic minority investor alongside Carlyle, with the objective to reinforce the European leadership of the group and to accelerate its profitable development, combining organic growth and targeted acquisitions.

Homair Vacances, who then had confirmed its European leadership became European Camping Group in 2017.

European Camping Group has been sold to PAI Partners in 2021.
