The pool will be open between the months of May and September (subject to the weather and any technical issues). 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 way.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. For horse lovers the Le Pin National Stud is just 35 minutes away offering guided tours of the stud and unmissable events throughout the year. If it's exercise that you want there are numerous places to walk in the surrounding picturesque countryside and it has great safe cycling roads for those wishing to go further afield; the Tour de France came past our road on it's way through to Carrouges in 2015. These are just a few examples of what there is to do in our region with lots, lots more to see and do.More
