A must place to visit is the beautiful city of Angers which is only a thirty minute drive away. No holiday is complete without a visit to one of the numerous chateau throughout the Sarthe region. A trip to the local "inland beach" at La Fleche is another great idea, sit in the sun, take a picnic and watch the sailing boats or kayaks on the lake. There is so much to see and do in the area.
