Ideas for holidays, weekends and trips in Alençon and its surroundings
This is a great holiday spot for travellers who are also racing enthusiasts. With the Campanile Hotel Alencon connected to Le Mans by the A28 highway, the hotel is a great base for people who want to see the Le Mans 24 hour races. The car race takes place every June. But if you visit in April you can still catch the 24 hour motorbike race.
Also during April, Alencon plays host to the Alencon – Medavy race, where runners compete in a race that begins in Alencon and then leads them out of the city and into the meanders of the forest. The race has been held for the last 38 years and competitors range from professional runners to enthusiasts who fancy a challenge.
There are certainly plenty of activities surrounding the Campanile Hotel Alencon to keep you busy. There’s a golf course just eight kilometres away, with a mini-golf course just six kilometres from the hotel. There are facilities to play tennis just one kilometre away and a go-karting track five kilometres away. Travel three kilometres from the hotel and you will find both a skating rink and a swimming pool to enjoy. If you want something a little less active, there is a cinema only a kilometre and a half away.
