Soleil Vacances Les Salines***
During the KPMG Tennis Master Tour 2019, the participants will have the chance to stay in a splendid two-star hotel located on the Guérande’s peninsula at Croisic – Batz sur Mer. It is only 300 metres away from the beach and located at the heart of tree-filled garden. The players will stay with their teams in rooms with an equipped patio and will enjoy the heated swimming pool of the Hotel. We hope that the excellent comfort conditions of the place will allow them to give the best of themselves on the court!
The KPMG Tennis Master Tour is much more than a simple tennis tournament. We work in order to offer high quality provisions to the players. Every evening, cocktails, dinners and parties are proposed. During the day, the "Buvette" tent, opened uninterruptedly, offers breakfasts, drinks and snacks. All those provisions are possible thanks to our numerous local sponsors like "Le Fondant Baulois" but also groups like Pepsico.
