Bustling with shops, restaurants and history, Le Mans has more to offer than the oldest motor race in the world. Following the outline of the Gallo-Roman walls, the Old Town – the ‘Cité Plantagenêt’ – is a five-minute stroll, its streets lined with medieval houses in mint condition. Take the guided trail.
Return to a light-filled apartment with lofty ceilings and a stylish décor in a balconied 19th-century building. Walking distance from the cathedral, this is a comfortable and convenient retreat for a party of four, with spacious bedrooms and a super kitchen.
On summer nights you can enjoy the Nuit des Chimères when the immaculate façade of the Town Hall is illuminated by a ‘son et lumière’ celebrating the history of this lesser known city.
