    BN Members' Holidays

    Group holidays for British Naturism members go from strength to strength, says Clive Edwards. They’ve  become a valuable part of what members get from their subscription and a brilliant way to meet like-minded people – a recent holiday to Spain attracted almost 60 people! There’s been a great mix of single men and women, and couples and the communal dinners, trips and other activities have made the holidays even better. Add to that the group discounts we have obtained from the resorts and you have no excuse not to come along!

    Our thanks to Chalfont Holidays for helping us to set them up. You can book direct if you prefer but may not be able to claim the discounted rates and other advantages.

    All the holidays have a leader (quite often, it’s me!) to make sure everyone has a good time. If you have any queries, please contact me on 07973 529334 or at membersholiday@bn.org.uk. You can also make contact with Chalfont Holidays on 01753 740176 or info@chalfontholidays.co.uk.

    The holidays are open to all BN members. If you are not a member, it is easy to join and the discounted price for the holiday accommodation will make a big contribution to the cost of membership. Trips, activities and group gatherings will be arranged, some attracting an additional cost. If you are travelling alone, in some cases it is possible to share a room – please ask for details.

    See you there!

    Clive

    Charco del Palo, Lanzarote - Sat 5th – Sat 12th Nov 2016
    78 miles off the coast of North Africa, Lanzarote is a year-round destination and a magnet for sun worshippers. Far from the mass tourism of other resorts, Charco de Palo is a wilderness of craggy rocks punctuated by sand and cacti. Our guests will be accommodated in modern apartments around a pool. For those who love to swim in the sea there is a natural basin that fills and empties according to the tide. There are three restaurants and a supermarket offering all the basic necessities for your stay.

    Gran Hotel Natura, Fuerteventura - Sat 21st Jan – Sat 28th Jan 2017
    Fuerteventura – the sunniest island in the Canaries and the perfect Naturist destination! Gran Hotel Natura, located on the beach at Corralejo, is an ideal destination for Naturists who want comfort, relaxation and good service. It only opened in 2013 but has quickly become one of the most popular holiday destinations. With 56 self-catering apartments, many of them having a wonderful view of the sea, it is the largest Naturist resort in the Canaries. The Hotel has its own restaurant serving quality food, and local amenities and services are within easy walking distance.

    New! Spa weekend to Munich, Germany - Fri 10th - Sun 12th February 2017
    Spanning a 36 acre site, Therme Erding is Europe’s largest Spa and it houses the world’s largest sauna complex where palm trees and tropical plants are in abundance. Boasting more than 25 themed sauna and steam rooms, fragranced hot tubs, flotation pools, whirlpools and lazy rivers - all rich in minerals - you will be hard pressed to experience everything in just one day! The choice of eateries will not disappoint as there is everything from sweet treats to juicy steaks on offer!   Vitality Oasis is the adult only section of the Spa and it is also strictly naturist. Your stay will be on a bed and breakfast basis in a modern 3* hotel. An evening meal in a local restaurant (not included) will give you a chance to get to know your fellow guests and chat over some great food. On Saturday, the spa will be available from 10:00 to 23:00, though we hope to take a trip to a Bierkeller on Saturday evening. Munich is easily accessible by public transport and offers all the major attractions of a European city.

    Skiing and Naturist Spa Hotel week, Pyrenees, Spain - Sat 25th February - Sat 4th March 2017
    Skiing and Naturism- how wonderful! Ski during the day and then come home to strip off in a Naturist Hotel and Spa! Set in the beautiful Pyrenees, this 4* mountain spa hotel has two restaurants and a lounge. The spa is well equipped with both a sauna and steam room, an indoor pool, an outdoor pool with a whirlpool, and a snack bar. The hotel has a mix of well appointed room and suites. Full board, ski pass, skiing equipment and transport to the slopes is included. 

    El Portús, Spain - Sat 6th - Sat 13th May 2017
    It’s becoming a tradition! Over 50 guests enjoyed the annual El Portús British Members’ Group Holiday in 2016 and so we’re pleased to be running our May break to Southern Spain yet again. There’s nowhere quite like El Portús. Situated on Spain’s Costa Calida and nestling in a sheltered, south-facing bay, with spectacular mountain and sea views, El Portús is the prime naturist holiday destination in Southern Spain. Right on the beach with a choice of modern, air-conditioned apartments, 3 types of mobile home and 400 camping pitches, two pools – one covered and heated in winter – restaurant, bar, shop and more...

    Naturist Angel Hotel, Rhodes, Greece - Mon 12 - Mon 19 June 2017
    Another super group holiday to a new venue - this time the beautiful Island of Rhodes. Located just 18km from the bustling old town, Naturist Angel is a well appointed hotel with hot tub, swimming pool, pool bar and a tranquil garden fringed by banana trees – the perfect place for a naturist break. All rooms are well appointed with en-suite bathroom, satellite TV, direct dial telephone, air conditioning, Wifi and private balcony. Room service is available 24 hours a day. The hotel’s trendy bar is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing evening drink, perhaps before heading out into Rhodes Town? For those who wish to stay in there is plenty to keep you entertained including Greek and Latin nights with live music and dancing! The holiday will be on a half board basis.

    Croatian cruise - Sat 30 September - Sat 7 October 2017
    We're always looking to improve the range we offer, so in a first for us, we are delighted to announce a naturist cruise! Why not join us as we explore the crystal clear waters of Croatia, whilst  visiting some historic towns and fascinating islands with abundant opportunities for nude sunbathing and swimming? You could even add on a Naturist holiday on the mainland. The MV Majestic has 19 air conditioned en-suite cabins and each has ample storage, bed linen and towels included - so your comfort is assured. The sundeck is well equipped with loungers and the air conditioned bar and dining room is the perfect place to enjoy a sundowner at the end of the day. The cruise will be on a half board basis - buffet breakfast and a three course lunch. Afternoon tea, coffee and biscuits are also included as is the Captains dinner once during your stay. Nudity will be welcome and expected on board except when in port and during meal times. A sharers list will be available for those who’d like to cut the cost.

    We are pleased to announce details of our first BN members group holiday for 2017! We will be returning to the ever popular Gran Hotel Natura, Fuerteventura, 21st - 28th January. All rooms are garden view, breakfast and evening meals are included in the cost. It is also possible to extend your stay (before or after these dates), or upgrade your room type. Cost depends on departure airport and how many people are travelling. This promises to be a great week. Do let us know if you are interested! Looking forward to hearing from you, Donna

    Patti and myself will be leading on the Munich spa weekend. The Erding spa is absolutely top class.... http://www.therme-erding.de/en/

    If you go to the main website it looks as if its a swimming costumes place. That's because there is a large swimming pool / leisure centre there that is non naturist. If  you go to the spa section of the website you get more idea... it is huge!!

    I am a bit upset this year at the piece Chalfont are charging for Lanzarote quoted £615 to share last year I shared and it was less than £400 I am a single pensioner and this is far more than I can afford , the aeroplane could be about 100 plus and self catering apts about the same for a week or maybe 150 per share this is something I feel needs addressing please
