Enjoy a Vintage Stay in Languedoc with Eurocamp - Embrace Autumn With The Region's First Barrel of Wine
September 17, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsExperts have pronounced it a vintage year for wine production in Languedoc and with Eurocamp's perfectly located parcs open late in the season there's never been a better time to visit. Enjoy the festivals, parades and tasting events taking place over the coming weeks.
As autumn creeps in get away for an event with Eurocamp, and see in the new season sampling the first wine from this summer's vines in elegant Languedoc – a region famed for its variety of grape. Acclaimed wine critic Janice Robinson has picked no less than 10 wines from the region for her 2010 wine buying guide.
Fête du Vin Primeur, an annual wine, will see local wine producers taking to the streets of cities, towns and villages across the region in celebration of the first barrel of wine. Complete with processions, music and entertainment for children from mid October.
Wine lovers, experienced and amateur alike, can enjoy the event by staying at Eurocamp's Domaine de Massereau parc. Just a few kilometres south from the splendid city of Sommieres, the parc has its own wine producing chateau that guests are able to take a guided tour of – including its own vineyard – as well as being able to purchase a wide variety of wines.
Perfectly placed amongst the vineyards and grand oak trees, are Eurocamp's charming chalets, giving guests a peaceful and tranquil setting. What's more, the parc boasts a heated swimming pool and restaurant for Eurocampers to enjoy.
Venturing off parc, mesmerising Montpellier, with its gothic cathedral and many cafes, bars and restaurants to enjoy is only 35km away – making it a popular day-trip destination.
A seven night break at Eurocamp's Domaine de Massereau parc (arriving 15 October 2010), costs just £259 for the whole family, staying in 3 bedroom Chalet, accommodation only.
Ferry crossings, fly drive packages, rail travel and overnight stops – at hotels or parcs en route - can also be arranged through Eurocamp at a supplement.
