Le Tour 2018

Tour de France 2016

If the whirr of wheels, the click of the gears and the cheer of the crowds makes your pulse quicken, why not chase that yellow jersey in the Tour de France!

The 105th Tour de France will be made up of 21 stages and will cover 3,329 kilometres. Except for a short visit of around 15 kilometres in Spain (during stage 16 between Carcassonne and Bagnères-de-Luchon) the 2018 Tour will never go beyond the borders of France. Many of our parcs are situated close to the route so you can follow the race and plan your own ‘Tour de France’.

Stages 1, 2 and 3 - Vendée

The start of the 2018 Tour is in the Vendée; the Grand Départ takes place on the Ile de Noirmoutier on the 7th July.

The first stage is a 189km ride along the coast and then inland to Fontenay-le-Comte. It's a flat stage, so it should be fast and exciting! Stage 2 takes the riders from Saint-Germain to La Roche-sur-Yon, while Stage 3 on the 9th July is a 35km time trial starting in Cholet. 

Our parcs in the Vendée are close to the coast and should allow you to get close to the cycling action too!
