A family road trip with Fiat 500L Beats

As some of you may already know just before Mr G came into the world we did a final family road trip as just the three of us. The lovely people over at Fiat asked if we would put their new Fiat 500L Beats Edition to the test as it's designed for family adventures and living life to the full. It'd a real tardis for one thing with a huge boot perfect for weekends away and this would also make a great festival/camping car as you could fit all your gear inside with no problem.

Running on the beach at Tenby

During our time putting it to the test we enjoyed a great day out at Cosmeston, a little city adventure to the Museum and Bute Park and a overnight trip to Tenby in West Wales were were we had fun at Heatherton Adventure Park and exploring the coastline in the glorious early spring sunshine.

beach fun

seaside fun

Tenby is such a beautiful and quaint seaside town in West Wales and has become one of our favourite spots during the off-peak season as it get's incredibly busy here over the summer but on this occasion we pretty much had the beach all to ourselves and sitting in the sunshine it was lovely and warm and of course we indulged in some wonderful Welsh ice-cream - which is a must when your at the seaside regardless of what time of the year it is.

jumping into the sand

Mr A is such an adventurer and loves nothing more than exploring new places. He discovered that jumping off this wall at the beach onto the sand was a lot of fun and spent a could half an hour doing it over and over again going a little higher each time. Since we got back home he has been asking when we will be returning as well as when our summer camping trips will start, either way we are looking forward to an exciting summer and thanks to Fiat for letting us put the Beats Edition to the test - we now have major car envy.

Fiat kindly invited us to review the Beats Edition - thoughts 100% our own


  1. I just love that photo of Mr A mid jump. What a photo. :)

  2. We need a car with a big boot. I love the look of it too, really stylish in silver

  3. Beautiful photos...we loved Tenby

  4. Tenby looks blissfully beautiful and calm! X

  5. It looks like you had a really fun time and the car looks very versatile. I'm always worried when I see practical cars that they'd be too big to manoeuvre around country lanes or in and out of car parks but this looks just great X

  6. ahh, love tenby! been there so many times, but haven't been at all since we moved to cardiff. we were going to go in the half term but couldn't afford the train. love the running on the beach photo!

  7. A Beats car now? Hadn't heard about that one. The Welsh seaside looks lovely.

  8. Tenby sounds lovely, I've never been but it's definitely a popular holiday destination for people near me! x

  9. What a gorgeous time you had! We're properly in love with West Wales.

  10. I love your video! I watched it with the twins and there were lots of oohs and aaahs :)
    I have hired a small car when we are in Italy this year and it says Fiat 500, I seriously hope we get one as they look the perfect car for me and the girls (dad's not joining us this time)
    Gorgeous photos of Tenby and thank you so much for joining in #TimeTraveller

  11. What a cute little car! Tenby looks gorgeous too, you've captured it really well! :) #timetraveller

  12. Tenby is one of my favourite places! love these shots and the cute vid! x

  13. I remember a post from your road trip, it looks so wonderful with that lovely sunshine and wide open beach. So much packed into your trip away and all shown so beautifully o the video. Great looking crazy golf there. Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids

  14. We used to drive a 1972 Fiat 500! It was quite an adventure ;)

  15. This looks like the perfect car for adventures. I'll need to get something like this nearer winter for getting out and about. Love the shot of A jumping onto the beach x

  16. The car looks pretty cool for busy families. The beach looks even better though. I could really eat an ice cream now!

  17. What some gorgeous photos - it looks like you really did have a wonderful adventure! x

  18. Love the photos - the car sounds perfect as well; I'm constantly wishing our car had a bigger boot!
