Detour De France with Eurocamp
May 16, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsFor the first time in its history, this summer's Tour De France will make a detour into the Catalan region of Spain - providing cycling fans with the perfect reason to visit the stunning region.
The two Spanish stages of the famous race will take place on 9th and 10th July 2009, visiting the vibrant cities of Gerona and Barcelona – and passing close by a wide selection of Eurocamp parcs.
Camping Tucan is situated neatly between each of the Spanish cities (47km from Girona and 74km from Barcelona), on the bustling Costa Brava, just half a mile from the popular coastal resort of Lloret de Mar.
Offering a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, the parc has an excellent range of facilities including a swimming pool, children's aquatic park, an indoor solarium and there is also football, basketball, volleyball and bike hire available. With all these activities to hand, it's plain to see why this is a popular choice for a family holiday.
A seven night break at Camping Tucan during the Spanish legs of the Tour de France (arriving 4 July 2009) costs just £924 for the whole family, staying in a three bedroom 'Chalet' (sleeps six), accommodation only.
For those who would like to stay closer to the fabulous "capital of Catalonia" Barcelona and enjoy the local stage of the Tour, Eurocamp's beautiful Vilanova Park is situated just 24 miles away, in Vilanova I la Geltru and just six miles south of the popular Mediterranean seaside resort of Sitges.
Vilanova Park is perfect for those wishing to get into gear and combine a culture-filled city break with a summer holiday – and still get to enjoy the famous race.
The parc has a real rustic Catalonian feel, yet boasts excellent modern facilities with activities such as tennis, table tennis, boules and volleyball. There's even a delightful mini zoo for the children to enjoy.
A seven night break at Villavnova Park during the Spanish legs of the Tour (arriving 5 July 2009) costs just £966 for the whole family, staying in a two bedroom 'Superior' mobile home (sleeps seven max), with air conditioning and decking, accommodation only.
