Get away to the sunny south

7th March 2003 at 00:00
Will Easter find your family sunning in the south of France or savouring la dolce vita in Rome? It can be done - even with the kids.

Canvas Holidays is offering discounts of up to 20 per cent for the start of the season. Camping La Sirene at Argel s in Languedoc-Roussillon has a huge swimming pool, free transport to the beach and lots of activities to keep younger members of the family happy.

Parents can explore historic Perpignan and Collioure nearby, or organise an expedition to Dali's birthplace, Figu res, just over the border in Spain.

The cost of pound;566 per party for 12 nights arriving between April 12 and 24 includes a return short Channel crossing for car and passengers and accommodation in a mobile home sleeping up to seven. In Italy over the same period, a family of two adults and up to four children will pay a total of pound;437 for a mobile home at Camping I Pini set in the tranquil countryside about 45 minutes' drive or free bus ride from Rome (reservations must be made before March 15). As if all this were not enough, the website advertises "British toilets". What more could you ask? Details: 01383 629000;
