Italy

Italy

Italy is a holiday nation of excellence thanks to its rich touristic offerings, mild climate and unique geography of coastlines, lakes and mountains. With numerous campsites and holiday parks in all twenty of its regions, Italy spoils you for choice when it comes to organizing your holiday.

Seaside holidays in Italy are synonymous with warm weather and a myriad of leisure opportunities in numerous seaside resorts, ideal also for those who love nightlife. A peninsula in the Mediterranean Sea, with the sizeable islands of Sicily and Sardinia, Italy is lapped to the east by the Adriatic Sea, to the west by the Tyrrhenian Sea and to the south by the Ionian Sea.

For those who prefer the mountains, for summer trekking or winter sports, the Italian Alps are the ideal choice, although there are plenty of opportunities for high altitude holidays along the Apennines, the mountain range that descends the entire Italian Peninsula from north to south. Along the Alpine range, plenty of tourist resorts are to be found particularly in the South Tyrol area, though there are many excellent travels destinations throughout the Alps.

Among the tourist areas of greatest interest are also the lakes, which every year see the arrival of millions of Italian and foreign tourists who come to appreciate the natural beauty and high quality of services. Right by the lakes, especially those in the north, there are an incredible number of campsites and holiday park. Indeed, Lake Garda, Lake Maggiore, Lake Como, Lake Iseo and the lakes of Trentino Alto Adige are long-standing destinations for outdoor holiday enthusiasts. In central Italy, on the other hand, it is worth mentioning in particular Lake Trasimeno and Lake Bolsena.

However, you cannot speak of Italy without any mention of its immense artistic, cultural and food and wine heritage. Any time of year is perfect for a romantic visit to cities of art and history such as Rome, Florence and Venice, to name a but a few. And after a tour of the museums, who could not take time out for dinner in a local restaurant to discover Italy’s fine wines and culinary specialities?

Spain

Spain

Spain is an ideal nation for seaside and city holidays, as well as for nightlife and religious itineraries. Facing the Mediterranean Sea to the east and the Atlantic Ocean to the west, with the Bay of Biscay to the north and the Gibraltar Strait to the south, Spain offers a comfortable climate for most of the year, albeit with some significant temperature differences from place to place. There are numerous campsites and holiday parks in Spain, usually located by the coast and along the most popular travel routes, which reflect the Iberian Peninsula’s natural vocation for outdoor tourism.

Seaside holidays in Spain are distinguished by the variety of choice available to tourists. The Mediterranean coast includes the autonomous communities of Catalonia, Valencia, Murcia and the stretch of Andalusia as far south as the Gibraltar Strait. Pleasant air and water temperatures make these destinations ideal for families with children, though there is also plenty of entertainment on offer for young people and groups of friends. The celebrated ‘movida’, or Spanish nightlife, and the Mediterranean coastal resorts make no exception, with great tourist attractions such as the Costa Brava and the Costa Dorada ideal for those wanting to visit the fascinating Barcelona. The Costa del Sol in the south is also rich in services and facilities, which are accompanied with warm temperatures typical of northernmost Africa.

Along the Atlantic Coast, the water temperatures are cooler and the seas are deeper, creating astonishing contrasting landscapes along the Andalusian coastal stretch from Gibraltar to the border with the Portuguese Algarve. On the Iberian Peninsula north of the Portuguese Coast, you will find Galicia and its fascinating shores distinguished by tidal variations that completely change the appearance of the coastline at different times of the day. From the Green Coast to the Bay of Biscay, the regions of Asturias and Cantabria lead on to the Basque Country, with the charm of a coastline entirely unspoilt in places. Popular destinations for beach tourism also include the archipelagos of the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean.

Visiting Spain is not all about seaside holidaying though. Cities of art and entertainment such as Barcelona, Seville and the capital Madrid are just a few examples of the artistic and cultural richness of a nation that excels in monuments, popular traditions and, of course, gastronomy, with its tapas, wines and sangria famous the world over. Finally, it is worth mentioning the religious tourism attracted by a great number of significant churches and the important Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage that every year involves thousands and thousands of participants.

France

France

France offers the state-of-the-art in campsites and holiday resorts, often organized in consortia to offer very similar quality standards among facilities. From this premise, it is easy to understand how outdoor tourism in France has grown over the years to match the growing demand of millions of foreign and French travellers who every year choose France for seaside and city holidays, and for its rich food and wine heritage.

Seaside holidays in France are generally seasonal. Lapped by the Mediterranean Sea to the south with its mild climate and celebrated French Riviera stretching from the border with Italy across to Spain, France also boasts long stretches of coastline on its cooler Atlantic side. With longer seaside holiday seasons to the south of the Bay of Biscay, bordering Spain, temperatures become gradually colder further north towards Brittany and around to the Gulf of Saint Malo, the English Channel, the Dover Strait and, finally, the North Sea at the border with Belgium.

Speaking of tourism in France, however, seaside holidays aside, there is plenty on offer in a territory full of attractions, from historic towns and cities of art, such as the capital Paris and its Eiffel Tower, to unique landscapes, such as the renowned Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy and the splendid lavender fields of Provence in the period from June to the end of August.

Regardless of the type of holiday you choose, opting to stay in campsites and holiday parks in France gives you a whole host of opportunities to fill your itinerary. Just don’t forget to make the absolute most of lunches and dinners to taste the French culinary specialties and wines that are spoken highly of the world over.

Croatia

Croatia

Croatia is an ideal destination for seaside holidays, but not only, and a nation that reserves some wonderful surprises along stretches of still perfectly uncontaminated coastline, especially on the numerous islands of its archipelagos. In a fascinating blend of natural beauty and excellent services for tourism, such as modern campsites and holiday resorts strategically located across the territory, Croatia has all the promise of a truly great summer holiday. It is also conveniently positioned in the north of the Balkan Peninsula and northeast corner of the Adriatic Sea, opposite the Italian coast, and is therefore easily accessible to tourists from all central and eastern European countries.

Campsites and holiday parks in Croatia boast a long tradition, thanks largely to influxes of German and Italian vacationers already during the period of the former Yugoslavia, but it was on gaining independence in 1991 that the nation started to invest heavily in outdoor tourism. The results were remarkable, with Croatia able to modernize its accommodation facilities, without losing sight of the delicate balance between tourism and environmental impact, as well as of its long-standing vocation for naturist holidays.

Most popular in Croatia are seaside holidays, despite the fact that the territory stretches far inland to the north and east, crossing under Hungary to reach the border with Serbia. With nature parks, national parks, UNESCO sites and picture postcard villages, Croatia appeals particularly to tourists where nature meets the sea. From the north to south, from Istria to the Ragusina-Narentina region, the seaside offers a continuous succession of continental Adriatic coastline and islands united in verdant archipelagos of rare beauty. The sandy or rocky beaches, with crystal-clear waters and Mediterranean scrubland areas, offer tourists postcard panoramas that can be easily appreciated through outdoor tourism, staying at campsites and holiday parks that today offer everything to cater for satisfying holidays with family or friends.

Austria

Austria

Austria is an ideal country for nature holidays, with its mountains and valleys lush green in summer and snowy white in winter. It generously provides picture postcard landscapes full of charming historic towns, suggestive chalets, majestic stone castles and high-quality and high-comfort accommodation facilities. The campsites and holiday parks in Austria are no exception, offering everything you need for a rewarding outdoor holiday throughout the year, including winter.

Mountain holidays are to be had mainly in the Alpine Range, especially in Tyrol and Carinthia, where you will find ski and winter resorts of international renown, such as, to name but a few, Villach, Sölden, Kitzbühel, Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Klagenfurt and Hinterstoder, the latter of which is also known as the ‘Pearl of the Alps’ for its unrivalled centuries-old charm. Spectacular in winter, when the quantity of snow is ideal for ski lovers and romantic spirits alike, these places, in the rest of the year, become a haven from the day-to-day stresses of life, perfect for enthusiasts of hiking in woods and forests and along well-marked mountain trails. All of this is enriched by numerous thermal spa towns that add extra value to relaxation and wellness holidays. Indeed, in the region of Styria, whose capital is the picturesque Graz, there are as many as six spa resorts using thermal water that flows directly from the ground.

But Austria is also a nation of lakes and rivers, with awe-inspiring gorges and waterfalls, as well as arrestingly beautiful cities such as Salzburg, Lienz, Baden and Innsbruck, not to mention modern Bregenz and unmatched Vienna. A city of music, with a truly magical atmosphere, Vienna is an unmissable stop for those that decide to visit Austria, with its perfect mix of old and new and inspiring romanticism along the banks of the Danube River.

And if you decide to go to Austria during the festive winter holidays, another must are the classic Christmas markets put on in all main towns from the middle of November to the day of the Epiphany on the 6th January.
