British Orienteering, Holiday in France

Lots of British love orienteering and they also love a holiday in France. So why not combine the two and opt for a perfect location for an orienteering holiday in France.

Le Moulin is located in a country setting with a number of woodland walks straight off the property. The terrain is made up of rolling hills and open countryside mixed with extensive forests.

Many of our guests have enjoyed the opportunity to be able to simply go walking, running or cycling and have commented on how perfect the accommodation would be for the orienteering or cycling community. Of course if you prefer your cycling to be a little less challenging there is always the option of the Canal Du Midi cycling path.

I have to admit that I would find it difficult to disagree with those sentiments and from May to September it would also be possible to add swimming to that agenda. With a 15m x 6.5m pool which is 2m in depth at the deep end, you really can swim rather than just take a dip. Something many of our guests have commented on and which you can verify in the visitors guest book where you can find many a comment referring to the 'great pool'.

Now is the perfect time to be thinking about booking a week or two for an orienteering holiday in France.

There is now a special summer offer in place starting on the 4th September 2010 and prices have been reduced by a full £200 per week for the whole of September, just when the temperatures drop enough to make taking an activity break a very attractive option. For information September offers a very acceptable average temperature of 26C in Languedoc Roussillon and October isn't too far behind at 21C.

For a full compliment of 9 people (one on a sofa bed) that is less than £75 per person per week, making it a very affordable holiday which is even more affordable once we get into October. Also being a self catering option near to Carcassonne, the Lac de St Ferreol and the Canal Du Midi, if you fancy a day off the activities you can find plenty of alternative ways to spend some time, and then when you come back you can fire up the barbecue with a cold beer to hand or crack open a bottle of red and prepare yourself a great meal in a kitchen that is home from home. Which is exactly what our latest group of 9 ladies have done this week during an old school reunion get together.


So if you haven't booked your summer holiday yet and would like to take advantage of this great offer, then all you need to do is visit the contact page of our website for your holiday in France and drop us a line letting us know which weeks you are interested in.
