Tour de France 2011 visits Brittany

Pounding up the hill in a Brittany cycle race

The Tour de France has just announced the route for 2011 which covers a distance of 3,471 kilometres over 21 stages including 6 on the mountains.

Next year the TDF once again returns to Brittany and if you're quick you can go and see it in person as we our Gite is currently vacant for the Tour de France 2011 Brittany dates in July next year.

On July 4th the tour enters Brittany with the 3rd stage completing in Redon, then on the 4th the riders setout from the naval port of Lorient and ride up to Mûr-de-Bretagne in the centre of Brittany. The next day the coastal region of Finistere is visited for a 158km run and finally on July 7th the stage starts in the medieval town of Dinan and completes 226km later on in Normandy.

Most of these towns are about an hour from our Gite and we're pretty much in the middle of Brittany so easy to see the race on all of these dates.

Drop us a line if you are interested in booking a holiday, either to see the Tour de France or on any other dates next year.

PS: Christmas and New Year 2010 is still available as well.
