On the weekend, you’ll have time to immerse yourself in the city’s atmosphere, which is easy to discover from your base at the Kyriad hotel in La Flèche. Wander among the many buildings designated as monuments in La Flèche, starting with the famous military school, the Prytanée National Militaire. The next day, visit the Loire’s most stunning château, Chenonceaux, located near Tours, as well as its renowned gallery overlooking the Cher.
In one week, you can explore the culture and folk traditions of Sarthe. Just a few minutes’ walk from your La Flèche 3-star Kyriad hotel, you can discover master craftsmen, heirs to the traditions of their ancestors: master glassmakers and a rare book binders still practice their arts here. La Flèche is committed to respecting the environment and is a participant of the Natura 2000 program. Wander through nearby woods and discover one of the region’s key natural areas of ecological interest before finishing the day in the restaurant.
If there’s one thing you cannot miss during your stay at the La Flèche Kyriad, it's the zoo. It's one of Europe's largest, created in 1946, with 1,500 animals on nearly 18 hectares of land. Rhinos, elephants, panthers, as well as dozens of species of birds and monkeys await the whole family. Some are even visible from the restaurant! Looking for big thrills? Bring your kids to show off their own monkey skills on the Accrobranches park obstacle course. For a sense of wonder and a bit of education, don’t forget that the nearby Loire Châteaus provide a wonderful opportunity to dive into the region’s heritage.
