A timeless moment with the Cités en Lumière

A timeless moment with the Cités en Lumière

Throughout the year, the Petites Cités de Caractère (Small Towns of Character) association works to highlight a unique heritage. On December 10th, during your break in the Sarthe at the Hotel Le Mans Country Club, you can share the magic of a special experience with Cités en Lumière (Cities in Light). 


The small towns of character in the Sarthe

Renowned for its varied and bucolic landscapes, the Sarthe also has an astonishing architectural heritage of villages and castles. Sillé-le-Guillaume, Fresnay-sur-Sarthe, Brûlon, and Parcé-sur-Sarthe are just some examples of beautiful places that offer many opportunities for walks. Saint-Léonard-des-Bois, a noted green tourism destination, naturally finds its place among these small towns of character, with its old streets and magnificent views of the Alpes Mancelles. And to see the village at its most enchanting, visit it during the Cités en Lumière event!


By the light of hundreds of candles

On December 10th, Saint-Léonard-des-Bois will be lit up by hundreds of candles. From 18:00, you can leave the modern world behind and enjoy the soft warmth of the candles illuminating the town thanks to the participation of all the associations in the village. You can also take a guided tour of the village by torchlight. It adds to the magic of the occasion and gives you the opportunity to learn about the local heritage... Finally, after this romantic getaway in the Alpes Mancelles, you can return to the comfort and intimacy of your room at the Hotel Le Mans Country Club.


The Sarthe can be enjoyed in any season. With archaeological and heritage riches, magnificent landscapes and small towns and villages full of charm, it has so much to offer. In December, during your stay at the Hotel Le Mans Country Club, take advantage of the Cités en Lumière event and see it in a new way!
