MORE ABOUT THE AREA: Pays de la Loire and the Sarthe Valley
Located in the Western part of the department of Sarthe, lies the wonderful Sarthe Valley, which offers charm, tranquillity, good wine and food in abundance. The Sarthe region needs very little introduction, everyone will know of 'Le Mans 24 hours', but the Sarthe has so much more to offer than speed and cars. The overlooked Cité Plantagenêt (Old City) of Le Mans, the Benedictine Abbey of Solemsmes, the town of Sable with its 19th century castle and marina, the small character town of Parce-sur-Sarthe, the stunning earthenware town of Malicorne-sur- Sarthe, and the impressive château at Le Lude. The Sarthe and the Loir Rivers run through the picturesque countryside, and there is a particularly rich and varied architectural heritage to enjoy. The Sarthe Valley offers everything in step with your lifestyle, whether it be golf, cycling, swimming, restaurants, fishing, theatre, Le Mans 24 hours, manmade beaches, country walks, forests, or just relaxing, it has everything for everyone. Sarthe specialities are really worth tasting! The wines from The Loire Valley remain relatively undiscovered and are absolutely delicious, try these with the local specialty 'rillettes' and perfect crusty bread!
These are all the reasons to come and discover the Wonderful Sarthe Valley!
