The Alpes Mancelles and their natural charm

The Alpes Mancelles and their natural charm

The varied landscapes of the Alpes Mancelles are just two hours from Paris. They peak at a relatively modest 417 metres at Mont des Avaloirs but have all the steep slopes and rocky escarpments you could wish for. Discover this bucolic setting during your stay at the Hotel Le Mans Country Club.


An escape amidst the wonders of nature: discovering the Alpes Mancelles

Nestled in the Normandie-Maine regional natural park, between the departments of Sarthe, Orne and Mayenne, the Alpes Mancelles offer panoramas that continually change as you wander along the small paths following the meanders of the Sarthe. The wooded hills, precipitous cliffs, and deep valleys are a delight for nature lovers. And don’t think that these are Alps in name only. You’ll be amazed to discover the fauna and flora you would expect of alpine regions. Equally unexpected is the impressive scree of Saint-Léonard-des-Bois, a vast expanse of the kind of rocks that are generally found at an altitude of more than 2,000 metres.


A remarkable heritage

There is no lack of characterful and scenic spots. From Saint-Céneri-le-Gerei, one of the most beautiful villages in France, to Saint-Léonard-des-Bois, stunningly situated between the hills of Mont Narbonne and Mont du Haut Fourché, and the fortified village of Bourg-le-Roi, you will enjoy surprise after surprise during your getaway in the heart of the Alpes Mancelles.


Activities for all tastes

Horse-drawn carriage and sleigh rides as well as the Saint-Léonard-des-Bois animal park offer delight for all ages. There’s also paragliding, tree climbing, canoeing and climbing for the more actively inclined.

After so much fun and excitement, there’s no doubt you’ll enjoy returning to the relaxing environment of your hotel, where we will be happy to welcome you. Book your break on our official website today.
