Welcome to our Le Mans 24 Hours site - we are the experts in Le Mans, creating tours for over 25 years. For hotels and chateaux, camping, travel, tickets and hospitality, please call us now!
All our hotels are in Le Mans; we also specialise in chateaux accommodation – we offer a totally authentic Le Mans chateau experience together with gala dinners or even helicopter transfers. Our chateaux are as close as 4 miles away and can usually host up to 13 guests. Accommodation is increasingly difficult within Le Mans but we are able to offer Le Mans hotel stays as short as three nights.
For 2020, we are holding a variety of official ACO campsites including Houx and Maison Blanche. These campsites are inside the circuit and close to the action. Please click our link Le Mans Camping

Le Mans Circuit Access
The new Le Mans tramway opened in November 2007 and has made a huge difference to the amount of traffic in and around the circuit. The tramway provides a convenient, inexpensive means to access the circuit, terminating at Antares in the circuit. The majority of our Le Mans hotels are within walking distance of a tramway stop. Within our hotel descriptions, we offer our recommendation for the easiest access to the circuit.
A day ticket on the tram is 4.20 euros per person (valid 24 hours) Tickets are valid for both tram and bus. You can buy tickets on a bus, at the main depot at 65 avenue du Generale de Gaulle or at the automatic machines at each tramway station. Or, you can buy 10 passes for 13.40 euros at most bar / tabac outlets. Inside the circuit, the ACO operate a number of free shuttle trains around the circuit.
Le Mans Restaurants
Before the race on the Friday - or after the race on the Sunday night - good dining can be very difficult to find. If you are looking for an elegant way to finish your Le Mans experience, look no further than our Auberge, which is ideally located in Arnage, close to our hotels and the circuit.
Since 1962, the family Souffront have been serving superb gourmet cuisine from their restaurant which offers a beautiful parkland view. The Auberge is one of the oldest restaurants around Le Mans. The gourmet menu consists of two starters, a main course, cheese plate and dessert. For each course, there is a choice of two or three dishes.
