Camping Holidays in the French Alps
With grueling routes covering some of France's most beautifully scenic regions, the Tour de France is an iconic cycle race, attracting huge crowds along the route. The Grand Départ of 2017 is from Dusseldorf on the 1st July, moving into France on the 3rd. Stage 10 takes place in the Dordogne close to many of our parcs. The races finishes in Paris on the 23rd.
There is always an opportunity to party around Lake Annecy and there are a whole host of sporting, cultural, traditional and international events which give the area a lively pulse. One of the main events is the Lake Festival, displaying the biggest firework show in Europe on the first Saturday of August, with music, light and special effects for 70 minutes!
