Unfortunately we are fully booked for the night of the 19th June 2016. Many race goers who have been awakporsche le mans 24 hrs 2016e for 24 hrs do not want to face the drive home on Sunday night and choose to stay over on the Sunday night to avoid the second race home when the roads from Le Mans will be crowded for hours after the race.

Next year book early to reserve the most luxurious bed and breakfast in a French castle.
