Groups travelling between 1st October and 31st May* will stay at the superb 4 star complex of EVENIA HOTELS in Lloret de Mar. The Evenia Olympic Garden Hotel and Spa is one of 4 hotels making up this superb complex. Together they offer an excellent range of facilities all available to our groups. These include 6 heated swimming pools, both indoor and out, a large games room with a multitude of games including table football and electronic machines. Rooms will range from 2 to 4 bedded and all have full bathroom facilities, air conditioning, satellite TV and telephone. Meals are taken in the hotel’s own dining room and are of an extremely high standard with a huge buffet choice for each meal. The hotel complex is situated in a quiet area of Lloret but within easy walking distance of the pedestrian shopping area and beach. The complex is also opposite the enclosed “all weather” training area which is booked for use of our groups during their stay. This area is of a very high standard with changing facilities. *PLEASE NOTE THIS PROPERTY CAN BE USED OUTSIDE THESE DATES AND CAN BE QUOTED ON REQUEST IF REQUIRED.
Teams play against local opposition in and around Barcelona. Times of these fixtures vary slightly but with them being against CLUB SIDES they take place outside school hours (ie after 5pm). Wherever possible we arrange games close together but on occasion it is necessary to play girls fixtures against a different club side nearby. In this case your coach will drop off 1 or 2 teams and continue (with our accompanying staff) to the next venue. We always endeavour to evenly match teams based on the information given to us by each UK group relating to ability. The clubs we use offer excellent facilities in their enclosed grounds including high standard 3G pitches (appropriate footwear must be worn) and in most cases they have their own bar/café. Groups are made very welcome and have a presentation before each game. Referees provided are professional officials and are paid by Ski and Sport Travel for each game.
All groups will visit this famous Camp Nou for a guided tour at some stage during their stay. Visit the extensive trophy room and savour the atmosphere of this magnificent arena. A visit to the excellent club shop is also a must where souvenirs of all prices and sizes can be purchased.
In and around the Tossa de Mar and Lloret area are a number of excursion and other sporting activities that are available to visit. There is an excellent waterpark in Lloret de Mar (open May to September), lots of shopping, and educational sites nearby. These include the historical city of Girona, the castle and harbour of Tossa de Mar and of course the numerous attractions of Barcelona itself. Groups travelling by coach will have use of their own coach at all times so this visits are made easy.
