Throughout life we’re assured it’s good to be different, that we should find a hobby that fits our personality and pursue whatever makes us happy. Until you’re going on a family or group holiday, that is.
Suddenly you might be told to avoid making waves and just go with the flow, regardless of whether your outside interests tend to involve being indoors or you’re not convinced your kids will prove the most convincing stand-in for your fellow players back at the tennis club.
Which is where Canvas Holidays steps in. Not only have we selected our campsites for their inspiring locations but, whichever one you choose, they’re brimming with fantastic facilities and nearby attractions to ensure all of you enjoy your perfect break.
The only thing to establish now is what kind of campers are in your party:
1 The fishing fan: If someone in your group is always angling for a fishing break, we’ve got 16 fantastic sites with large ponds and overflowing lakes to hook them in, catch their imagination and stop you feeling gill-ty.
2 The culture vulture: If you thought that you had to choose between city breaks and camping holidays, think again. From the artistic delights of the French capital of Paris to the ancient splendours of Rome, many of our campsites are near to Europe’s most culturally rich hotspots.
3 The cycle lover: With our campsites located in some of Europe’s most beautiful countryside, exploring on two wheels can prove some of the most rewarding ways to get to know an area, whether you bring your own bike or hire one on site.
4 The water worshipper : From water skiing to scuba diving, kayaking to windsurfing and swimming to body-boarding, we’ve got a wealth of water sports up our neoprene sleeves to whet your appetite for adventure.
5 The greedy gourmet: If the way to your holiday heart is through your stomach, the good news is that there’s plenty of opportunity to tuck into the local gastronomic fare and get a taste for traditional regional specialities across our sites.
6 The golf enthusiast: If you’re travelling by car anyway, simply throw in your clubs and enjoy some of the continent’s finest golf courses. And if you’re really lucky, you might be able to tee up your fellow travellers to swing by one of our locations with an on-site course.
7 The spa devotee: From historic spa towns to luxurious spa centres with indoor pools, indulge in some wonderful treatments and soothing relaxation areas.
8 The walking aficionado: With some of Europe’s most mesmerising landscapes on your doorstep, from coastal paths and lakeside routes to mountain hikes with panoramic rewards, all you need is a pair of sturdy shoes to get started.
9 The adrenaline junkie: Did you know you can find a Canvas campsite close to many of Europe’s best theme parks, from Disneyland Paris and Spain’s Port Aventura to film-focused Futuroscope and Holland’s Efteling? So whether you’re after a water slide fix or some roller coaster action, you can count on us to provide the perfect relaxation venue after the day’s excitement.
10 The beach babe: With its mix of golden-sand beaches, idyllic sheltered bays and dramatic coastline, you needn’t travel outside of Europe to get your beach fix. Nearly 40 of our sites have direct beach access or are within easy reach of some of the seashore for a truly tranquil getaway.
