Heritage Days in Sarthe

Heritage Days in Sarthe

On September 17th and 18th, the 39th edition of the Journées du Patrimoine (Heritage Days) will be held throughout France. With its rich historical, architectural, religious and industrial heritage, Sarthe offers a fascinating programme. Take the opportunity to visit places closed to the public throughout most of the year during your stay at the Hotel Le Mans Country Club.


Heritage Days in Le Mans

Heritage Days is the occasion when monuments, institutions and unusual places open their doors to the public. It’s also an opportunity to visit museums and historical sites free of charge and sometimes see them from a different perspective. For example, you can rediscover the Musée de la Reine Bérengère and its superb 15th century building in the heart of the Cité Plantagenêt at your own pace. As part of Heritage Days, the Musée Jean-Claude Boulard – Carré Plantagenêt is hosting an exciting conference on daily life during the Late Antiquity period and the Musée de Tessé will focus on Egypt. On the program are thematic guided tours, skills demonstrations, workshops, and some surprises yet to be revealed.


Wonderful outings in the Sarthe

Very close to Le Mans, the magnificent Abbaye Royale d’Epau, a former Cistercian abbey and Gothic gem dating back some 800 years, offers 30-minute guided tours with the bonus of access to rooms that are usually off limits. Then head to the Château Dobert, a superb 18th century manor with beautiful classical architecture and elegant proportions. Finally, why not treat yourself to a concert by the baroque ensemble Euterpia, celebrating the musical heritage of Malicorne-sur-Sarthe...


By taking a break at the Hotel Le Mans Country Club during the third weekend of September, you can easily discover the rich heritage of Le Mans and Sarthe, while setting aside plenty of time for some beautiful relaxation in our magnificent wooded park...
