Tips for a fabulous Canvas Holiday

After having a fantastic holiday at Camping la Croix du Vieux Pont, Berny Rivière, I thought I would share my top ten tips for a fabulous Canvas Holiday experience!!!

  • After settling in and unpacking the cases you might be feeling a little tired, so plan to have a BBQ on the first night. The gas BBQs are ready to use as soon as you arrive so pop to the shop, grab some burgers and drinks and spend your first night relaxing in your lodge with a quick and delicious dinner.
  • After a great night’s sleep take a trip to the on-site bakery for fresh, home baked croissants and baguettes for breakfast.

How to get the best family holiday photos

Capturing a moment on a family holiday is priceless. It’s a time when you are (hopefully) feeling at your most relaxed and happy, and the memories are something that you can look back at for years to come. We asked blogger and lover of photography Amanda for her top tips on capturing perfect holiday pictures. Here’s what she told us.

I think the first thing I would recommend is, whatever you are taking your photographs on, get to know it better. Whether it’s a phone, a point and shoot, or a DSLR, take some time to handle the camera and read the instructions so that you can get the most out of it. On a side note also make sure you bring a charging cable, or batteries and a large memory card, the last thing you want is to not be able to take those photographs once you are away.

A day out at Cinecittà World Theme Park, Rome

Fancying a wee break from Scotland, our Online Marketing Executive, Katie headed off to Rome with her husband Chris back in May. Always in search of adventure, she found Cinecittà World close to Camping Fabulous...here’s how she enjoyed it:

I wouldn’t class myself as a huge thrill-seeker, but every time I visit a foreign country on holiday I seem to find myself looking for the nearest theme park, waterpark, go-kart circuit, water sports centre…you get the drift. Maybe it’s down to the fair hair and not being able to lie in the sun for any more than half an hour without turning into a tomato!

5 Lake Garda adventures you cannot miss

I spent a week exploring Lake Garda, sampling the best it has to offer in outdoor activities.

And my trip with Canvas Holidays didn’t disappoint.

Here are my top five adventures you cannot miss.

  1. Climbing Monte Baldo

This imposing ridge of mountains on the eastern shoreline provides the most dramatic of backdrops to the glistening blue of Lake Garda. Craggy peaks topping 2,000-metres rise above lushly forested slopes, creating a wild and rugged landscape that feels a million miles from the crowded tourist hotspots. Take a ferry to Malcesine, ride the cable car to 1,760 metres and get exploring. Short walks with stunning views satisfy most – but for a real adventure wear your hiking boots and trek to the 2,218-metre summit of Cima Valdritta.

Camping Duinrell: The verdict!

Our Kids Ambassadors, Oliver & Ella took a holiday to Camping Duinrell in Holland. Here’s what they thought (in their own words). 

We have recently returned from a fab week at Camping Duinrell in Wassenaar, Holland and it was just a non-stop week of funfair and water park family fun.

We took the ferry from Harwich to the Hook of Holland which although a 7 hour journey went quickly as there is lots do on board including a cinema, play area and restaurants.

The drive down to Duinrell took around 45 mins and Mum and Dad found the drive very easy. On arrival we were shown to our two bedroom Comfort Plus caravan which was to be our home for the week. Although it was quite small it had everything we needed and was very close to the amusement park and water park which we thought was perfect. With the sunny weather we were able to make the most of the decking area and sun loungers, and of course the barbecue.

Pyrotechnic Art Festival, Cannes 2016

For a few nights each summer, the sea and sky around the Bay of Cannes is lit up in the most spectacular fashion as the city plays host to the Pyrotechnic Art Festival. Since 1998 the skies above Cannes have been lit up by some of the world’s best pyrotechnics – translated as firework setter-offers! If you’re in the area, it’s well worth heading down to the bay to watch the spectacular fireworks light up the area.
