Rendez-vouz en France

The traditional rivalry between the UK and France always adds a little to the matches played in France, yet come the end of the game, the receptions are often legendary! With it being close you can do a quick three or four-day tour to the north, or fly to the South of France for a little longer.

SPORTS & SEASONS

Rugby

Sep–May

Played across the country, although the south west offers the most competitive rugby. If heading to an area with a Pro 14 side, we can arrange training with a pro club. Jonny Wilkinson has even been known to turn out and give the lads a lesson in kicking. Plenty of festivals on offer too if you want a tour with plenty of rugby thrown in.

Hockey

Sep–Apr

Really just for girls and not the place to tour if you are a good side but if you want social hockey to tour alongside a rugby tour for instance this is a distinct possibility.

Football

Sep–May

As you might imagine in a football mad country this is played right across the country and you have the option of traditional touring or entering local tournaments.

CULTURE

There is much more to France than Snails and Frogs legs!! France is steeped in history and you don’t have to go far to find interesting little areas to explore or a museum to wind away a few hours. Food and wine obviously feature highly and a visit to a local market can be as educational as a visit to a museum!

Activities

The WW1 and WW2 battlefields are great for tours travelling to the north. If you travel further south, the Vineyards of Bordeaux offer superb informative tours with tastings for the teachers. Disneyland Paris is a good option for the younger tourists, or else try sea kayaking of the south west coast.

Accommodation

Plenty of choice from sports centers through to good 4 star central hotels – entirely dependent on your budget. Billeting not available.
