    TdF Travel Package Recommendations?

    The better half came up with the brilliant idea of flying to France to catch some of this year's tour. I've started researching various packages online, but wanted to see if the fans on this forum have any experiences/recommendations to share. I'm leaning toward a tour that includes the option to ride parts of some of the routes, but a straight spectator tour would be considered as well. A package that includes the final day in Paris is a near-must.

    Any thoughts or recommendations would be welcome. Thanks!

    I also might be headed to France this summer with my family; unfortunately I am the only one interested in cycling.

    "Eurocamps", with locations all over Europe, are popular places for European families to vacation. They sound like a cross between all-inclusive resorts like Club Med and a high end version of camping somewhat like KOA campgrounds in the US, only nicer, with significant more amenities and recreation choices. You can stay in your own or their tent or stay in cabin like cottages. There are two different Eurocamps in France (one in the Pyrenees, one in the Alps) that are pitched as good cycling bases from which to explore TDF routes and cycling in general; they offer referrals to bike rental places, and have mapped out numerous suggested rides. http://www.eurocamp.co.uk/activities/road-cycling.html. These would be places to stay and pursue cycling, not necessarily to follow this year's tour.
