Le Mans is a French city found along the shores of the Sarthe River within a department of the same name. While famous for its endurance car races since 1923, there are a host of other attractions which our hoteliers believe are ideal for holidaymakers from all walks of life.
Transports in Le Mans
There are many national motorways which can be used to access Le Mans. The most common are the A11 (to the north) and the A28 (to the west and south). It is also possible to arrive via train thanks to the Gare du Mans station. This hub is located approximately one hour outside of Paris. Our hoteliers recommend utilising Le Mans-Arnage Airport in terms of air travel. However, it is often more convenient to arrive at Paris and to request a regionally chartered flight.
When to go to LE MANS ?
The most popular time to visit Le Mans is during the month of June thanks to its famous race. However, this is also when it can become quite expensive. Our hoteliers suggest travelling during the late spring or the early autumn in order to avoid expensive accommodations. The weather is also quite agreeable during these times of the year.
While the races are very impressive, let's take a quick look at some of the other attractions and things to do suggested by our hoteliers.
