Unfortunately we're not now able to use the holiday we booked in Croatia, with Roan - arrival 24th May, bungalow tent for two weeks at Camping Vestar at Rovinj.  It's a complicated story, and I don't want to go into details on here but I've emailed Roan and can change the booking into another family's name at no cost, and they can then use the holiday.

Obviously it means a ferry and a long drive, or an expensive package of flights and then probably car hire, but I'm offering it on here free of charge.  The total cost was only 95.00 anyway, which isn't a lot to lose if no one can use it, but I'd rather give it away if someone would like two weeks at Rovinj. 

The holiday offer is for free accommodation for two weeks - in a large tent, (sleeps up to six(?) with proper beds, cooking equipment, crockery, and a fridge freezer.  You can hire a package of bedding and towels on top.  The site is adjacent to a beach, has a pool complex and bar and restaurant, all set in a beautiful wooded bay overlooking the blue Adriatic.  You can see details of the holiday here;

Roan Holidays Camping Vestar - but the tent we've booked is a Roan one, now they're only featuring the Go Tent ones as an alternative.

Email me on valdaathome at gmail.com if you don't want to give away the fact that you will  be away on those dates.

Oh what a shame Val. And lovely to offer the holiday to someone else. Hope it's nothing serious.

Thanks both, don't worry, we're all fine!  Just a combination of circumstances mean we can't do the Croatia trip, but we're still away for five weeks, so I'm not complaining!

such a shame Val as you were clearly looking forward to it, we were the same this time last year with our booked holiday to Cala Gogo, ended up not going and no-one else wanted it (thankfully we only lost 75) but would have been nice for some other family to use it. Hope you find someone who can use it

It's one of the few things I've booked in about the last twenty years - trust things to go wrong!  Still five weeks in France as a consolation prize can't be bad!

Well the holiday has gone to a family with small children, so I very much hope they all enjoy it!

To be honest we'll still have a lovely holiday in France - and next year I don't think I shall book in advance as the holiday is still the same price as we paid on the Roan website, for the same dates!  It will be an impulse thing next time, as that's what works for us!

aww that's nice to know, I hope they enjoy it, still great you're still able to get to France for the 5 weeks and not lost too much from missing Croatia (apart from being there)
