in a nutshell
50 years of camping passion
The idea for Canvas Holidays was born in 1964 thanks to a British family who wanted to make European camping easy and accessible for everyone.
A year later, 25 tents were erected across two campsites in Northern France and the first Canvas Holidays customers arrived on site assured that on arrival everything would be ‘ready for that first cup of tea.’
Throughout the years, Canvas Holidays spread throughout Europe, offering holidays in many more regions in France, as well as Italy and Spain to thousands of families – many experiencing holidays abroad for the first time with Canvas.
Today, Canvas Holidays offers a wide range of accommodations on a variety of campsites all over Europe. Campsites have changed a lot over the last 50 years, but the team and our couriers onsite remains passionate about the quality of your stay.
