Make a self catering apartment or holiday rental on Le Mans, France your home away from home

As well as being famous for its 24-hour car rally, Le Mans is an excellent tourist base for exploring Normandy as well as the nearby Loire valley. Le Mans itself has one of the most beautiful old quarters in France, with a remarkable Cathedral and a wealth of royal history. The city's love of cars began in 1873 when local bell-maker, Amadée Bollée, built his first steam-driven car. The Renault factory continues this business today in southwest Le Mans. Further afield there are many small villages and some magnificent chateaux to visit.

Things to Do in Le Mans, France Visit the Museums

The Musée de l'Automobile is on the edge of the 24-hour circuit and it documents the area's automobile history with 150 cars on display, including recent winners. From a different era, the Musée de Tessé has a collection of Egyptian artefacts and there are several Museums of Art.

Explore the Old Town

The Old Town of Le Mans is quite unique. It stills hides behind its Roman walls and has plenty of winding alleyways and old buildings which all have great individual character. Stroll beside the city's Sarthe River and explore the central Place de la Republique. A visit to the magnificent Gothic Cathedral is a must.

Visit the Theme Parks

There is something for every age and taste around your Le Mans holiday rental, including a number of theme parks. The Papea City has a Wild West theme with thrilling rides and "Les Atlantiques" is a water-themed park with many pools, chutes and slides.

Abbaye de l'Epau

The owners were very helpful and provided everything we needed. What a gorgeous house! Plenty of room for the 9 of us and loads of space for the kids to enjoy. The gardens are spectacular too. The kids enjoyed the pool. Plenty of crockery and cutlery for use. Both indoor and outdoor eating areas. Just perfect! The local villages are lovely, nice restaurants too. Not far from Le Mans. Good location. Would thoroughly recommend.
