The Auberge Le Petit Pont in the Pays de la Loire, in the heart of the Sarthe
Le Mans is 25 minutes from our hotel restaurant in Tennie.
Le Mans is of course world famous for its "24 hours automobile race", but, is also labeled "City of art and history", the prefecture of the Sarthe also has a unique architectural heritage, which is worth visiting. The city is a candidate for the World Heritage of Humanity (UNESCO) classification. The menhir, the Roman wall, the great Saint-Julien cathedral, the Plantagenet Royal Palace of the 10th, the Museum of Fine Arts, the hundred half-timbered houses, the Renaissance houses, the paved streets, lined with wheel-carriages guards, enable you to travel through history ... Its prestigious past dating back to Roman times is still illustrated today through the many vestiges including the Vindunum baths or the Old part of Le Mans renamed "Cité Plantagenêt" since 2003. This preserved area is very popular for the filming of historical films.
For nature lovers, the 8 ha Jardin des Plantes with French and English garden offers the ideal setting for a pleasant moment of relaxation.
Last but not least, the 24-hour Museum, located right next to the legendary circuit, displays more than 120 vintage vehicles.
