Le Mans 24 Hours, June 10-11, 2023
The Le Mans Chateau Experience
Beware! Do not buy your tickets before traveling to our Le Mans chateaux.....previous guests have arrived at our mesmerising chateaux and have not left to see any racing!
We have been working with a range of chateaux for many years in the Le Mans area and we can thoroughly recommend the venues, service and welcome without hesitation. A chateau stay is a superb chance to gather guests or friends for a unique house party and perhaps enjoy sensational racing at Le Mans.
Chateau des Arches
The Chateau des Arches is one of the closest chateau to the circuit. The chateau is located in Yvre-l'Eveque, just over 6 km from the circuit. The chateau dates from the 18th century and is surrounded by a large wooded park. The chateau offers authentic guest rooms and all rooms have private bathrooms; they are bright and spacious and combine a modern touch with stylish decoration and antique furniture.
The chateau is currently undergoing exterior renovations; the terrace, swimming pool and bbq area is not expected to be operational in June 2023. However, no work on site is expected for the duration of the 24 Hours.
The newly renovated Chateau Gatehouse is not affected by the work and is located at the entrance of the estate. There is a living room, kitchen and bathroom. From the living room, a spiral staircase leads to the two guest rooms. Room 1 has two double beds; room 2 has a double bed and a single bed. Maximum occupancy is 7 and the price is based on maximum occupancy. Breakfast is available from the chateau at a supplement.
There is plenty of secure car parking.
The chateau is not a full service hotel, rather a chambre d'hote and the attention from the owners is second to none.
L'Oseraie is a private chateau sitting gracefully in its own 23 hectares of varied parkland, woods and fields, bordered to one side by the river Sarthe and the village of Chemire sur Sarthe on another. The chateau is located to the west of La Fleche and is approximately a 50 minute car drive to Le Mans - the route will also take you into Arnage which provides a quicker access to the circuit.
The Chateau has been tastefully and sympathetically refurbished in 2012/3 to provide high quality comfort and amenity for our guests whilst retaining as much as possible of the authentic character and gracious elegance of the Chateau. Guests are warmly and personally welcomed. The owners are on hand throughout guests' visits to help and encourage you to make the most of your stay, whether through advice on exploring the surroundings, recommending restaurants to suit your personal tastes and preference or booking activities for your group. All bedrooms have comfortable high quality beds made up with pure cotton high thread count bedding, and fluffy white towels in the bathrooms. The Chateau is not a hotel so do please bear this in mind if you are looking for and prefer a formal hotel experience with full hotel services.
Each bedroom has:
Dedicated Circuit Transfers
For groups, we can offer Bell 206 helicopters which have 4 seats each for the transfer from the chateaux to Le Mans. The journey time is approximately 15 minutes. Transfers can also be made be executive mini-vans or coach or a mixture of road and air. For a return helicopter flight, the latest departure time will be 21:30.
For corporate guests or private groups, there are a number of ways to travel to our chateaux. We can organise a private flight charter into Tours or Le Mans, a scheduled air service into Tours or first class rail travel directly into Tours or Le Mans.
Please contact reservations should you require a detailed quote for a private charter.
