Don't 'Les Mis' Out On A Great Value Summer Break With Keycamp
July 17, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsLiterature and musical lovers alike won't want to miss out on the opportunity to combine a family holiday this August with a visit to the town that inspired the setting for Victor Hugo's epic Les Misérables. And with prices for seven nights in Picardy with Keycamp starting from £1,092 per party, there's every reason to 'dream a dream' of a great value family getaway this summer.
Stay at Keycamp's Château de Drancourt parc at St Valéry, which offers a great gateway to the region and is ideally placed for a visit to Montreuil-sur-Mer – the inspiration behind Les Misérables – where a celebratory festival (2-5 August) pays tribute to the story with a sound and light extravaganza that is a must-see for any fans.
Meanwhile, there's an array of other attractions to visit in the area for those looking to soak up some culture – from the 15th century château of Rambures, to the Picardy Museum, housed in a quintessentially French mansion. And for the kids, the Aqualud Waterpark and Parc Bagatelle leisure park are sure to be a hit.
Back on-parc and there's plenty to entertain the whole family, with activities including tennis, football and volleyball on offer, not to mention free kids' club activities for four to twelve year olds. Meanwhile, a setting in the leafy grounds of a château and a three pool complex and sun terrace is the ideal setting to unwind.
When the sun goes down, families can while away the evenings at the on-parc gourmet restaurant and cosy lounge bar, or visit the nearby town of St Valéry, which has an array of traditional French restaurants, shops and cafes to choose from.
A seven night break from 3 August 2013 staying in a two bedroom, two bathroom Villagrand mobile home (sleeping up to two adults and four children) with decking at Château de Drancourt parc will cost from £1,092 per party, accommodation only and including a saving of £364.
Ferry crossings and fly-drive packages are available at a supplement.
