Sleep out in Style in Canvaschic Yurt lodges
Why chic camping?
Canvaschic was founded in 2003 by Lodewijk van den Belt and Ruth Lawson. They wanted to offer guests a holiday which reflected their personal love of the outdoors, the thrill they feel sleeping under canvas and their sense of adventure. “We felt that an enjoyment of all of these things shouldn’t necessarily mean sacrificing the finer things in life; comfort, style and space.” A traditional camping holiday usually meant either being in a row with hundreds of other campers or really going ‘outback’ with a tiny tent on your back.
Tented Camps come to Europe

Camping in style is a long-standing tradition, enjoyed for decades for example on the great safari camps in Africa. Whilst working on their idea to offer a chic tented camp in France Ruth and Lodewijk were stunned to find that this type of accommodation didn’t really exist in Europe at the time. The first Mille Etoiles site, with only three Yurts, opened in 2003. After featuring in Conde Nast Traveller and the Sunday Times Travel magazine in 2004 (read articles by clicking on the link) the response was enormous from both potential guests and the press. They were spurred on to try and create a new camp so that they could welcome more people.

Majestic yurts, chic campers and fresh air
Although Canvaschic is bigger now (and aiming to develop more camps in Europe) our mission is to maintain the special atmosphere that was originally created. This atmosphere was due in equal parts to the incomparable ambiance of the handcrafted yurt, the proximity to stunning natural landscapes and of course the many wonderful guests we welcomed since 2003. We are delighted with our new location and are certain that the sprit of Canvaschic camping will continue to thrive and evolve.
