Enjoy the last of the summer sunshine
One of the big attractions of a Canvas holiday is enjoying the local food and wine, and perhaps selecting a few bottles to tuck in the car boot for the journey home.And we think there’s no better way to do just that than relaxing with friends and family outside your tent or round the barbeque.Or maybe you’re a serious connoisseur who likes nothing better than comparing vintages on a tour of the finest estates.Visiting a vineyard or cellar for a wine-tasting experience makes a great day out but wine-tasting weekends are also great for a short break or as part of a multi-centre holiday.And naturally, we’ve got some great campsites that are perfectly situated for wine tasting: weekends away or long summer holidays, it’s one of the great pleasures of a French camping holiday!For more information visit our regional pages for the Loire, Burgundy and the Dordogne or check out our top picks for wine tasting weekends and holidays.
