A weekend in Vire opens the doors of a historical city with an impressive cultural heritage. Spend the first day visiting the Vire Museum of Popular Arts and Traditions, before discovering the historic center and the Porte Horloge. In the evening, relax in the comfort of your hotel and enjoy culinary specialties from Norman cuisine at the Campanile restaurant. On the second day, treat yourself to a thrill by testing the extreme sports offered by AJ Hackett Normandy, a European center of extreme sports, located on a suspended walkway serving as a platform for bungee jumping, among others.
During a week-long stay in Vire, discover the Normandy countryside by travelling along three different tourist routes around the city. Start with the traditional route, 65 km long, to visit local agriculture and regional crafts. Then, travel along the Gorges de la Vire route, where you will appreciate the natural landscapes over about 30 km. Finally, travel along the Granit route, which goes about 50 km around the Armorican massif. During this trip, organize rest stops by booking a room in our Campanile hotels in Normandy
A family stay in Vire promises to be full of fun and exotic activities. You can visit the zoo in Jurques and admire its many species of rare animals, or the Souterroscope des Ardoisières, which recounts, deep below the surface, the history of an old slate mine. Don’t forget to explore the Municipal Museum of Vire and its collections of ethnography, fine arts, decorative art and history as well as the Porte Horlage. Then, discover Lake Dathée for an excursion into nature. For thrills, head towards the Souleuvre for a bungee jump.
