A weekend in Le Mans is the perfect way to explore its medieval city center and enjoy a taste of the good life. Admire stunning monuments like the Cathedral of Saint Julian, complete with an incredible array of stained-glass windows. Next, head to Cité Plantagenêt, the city’s superb medieval old town perched atop a fortified promontory that dates back to the Angevin Empire of the 11th century. After a great night’s sleep in your Première Classe hotel, give in to the temptation of a stroll along the banks of the Sarthe, where there are charming views up to the old town on offer.
A longer stay in our Première Classe hotel in Le Mans means you get the time to explore the city properly. Treat yourself to a visit to the 24 Hours of Le Mans Museum dedicated to the famous race of the same name. If you’re more a fan of the arts, the collections of French, European and Egyptian paintings on display at the Musée de Tessé will blow you away. Want to spend time outdoors? Take a stroll through the Jardins de Gourdaine below the Le Mans city walls or enjoy a picnic in the botanical garden.
A beautiful Pays de la Loire city, Le Mans is bursting with fun things to do during a family stay in our Première Classe hotel. Take your kids to the Musée Vert, a natural history museum that is home to huge collections of rocks, plants and animals, to discover local heritage and wildlife in a whole new light. Don’t miss the Arche de la Nature either — with its 1111 acres of forests, countryside and rivers, it’s a great family day out.
