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.
