Tour de France 2016
It is one of the most anticipated events in the sporting calendar and now hot on the heels of the recent Tour De France race, the first stage dates and route have been announced for 2016. So why not get involved and enjoy the action with Eurocamp?
It all starts 2 July 2016 at Mont-Saint-Michel and travels through the beautiful French Countryside, which is not only ideal for cycling but also for a great holiday. With more than 100 well-equipped parcs in some of France’s most popular areas, British cycling lovers can enjoy the best of the action at parcs situated along the route.
Located by the starting line, Domaine des Ormes in Brittany is perfect for holidaymakers seeking adventure during their travels. With an 18-hole golf course and horse riding available on site, there is something to keep all the family occupied after the race has got going. Prices start at just £866 for a family of four for one week.*
On the first leg of the race, stay at Chateau les Eaux in Normandy, for just £775.* Perfect for families travelling with younger children, it boasts a selection of indoor and outdoor pool complexes, complete with a jungle themed kid’s pool and waterslides, so the fun will continue even after the race has passed by.
Just a stone’s throw from Caen ferry port and close to the first leg of the race, start the summer holiday as soon as the boat docks at Côte de Nacre from £799*. Join in with the cycling festivities and ride a bike to the nearby seaside resort of St Aubin-sur-mer. With local bike hire recommendations and free cycling routes and road maps provided, Eurocamp is the perfect choice if you want to get involved. Planned activities and entertainment for the whole family is aplenty throughout the summer, meaning no shortage of fun even for the non-riders. After all this excitement why not enjoy some downtime in the on-site spa and Jacuzzi. For family members seeking culture during the trip, check out the D-Day landing beaches, which are just a short walk from the parc.
Stay close to the finish point of the second leg at Camping du Golf in Normandy and enjoy the Tour De France right on the parc’s doorstep for £840.* As well as the famous race, the region is well known for using locally sourced products in restaurants and the area is considered haute-cuisine heaven for food lovers. For those wanting a bit more rest and relaxation, a large sandy beach and views of never ending sand dunes are just ten minutes from the parc.
