For History enthusiasts there are plenty of tourist sites to visit; the D-Day landings are just under an hour away by car in Caen with the Bayeux tapestry the same distance again. Within 20 minutes, is the renowned Falaise Pocket Museum and the Château Guillaume- the-Conqueror, the birth place of William the Conqueror. For motor enthusiasts the circuit of Le Mans is just 50 minutes away. The motor museum is an absolute must to see and when there is no racing on, why not take a drive down the Mulsanne Straight.
