Vire lies at the heart of Lower Normandy and is a lively place that's perched on an outcrop of rock, approximately one hour to the southwest of Caen. The area features lush forests and has easy access to major Channel ports and Paris.
Vire is a favourite among the thousands of visitors who come to the area as a place where they can visit the historical sites of the region and enjoy the outdoor activities on offer.
Many attractions of interest are outside of Vire, but are just a short drive away. This includes the city of Renne, known for its cathedrals, and picturesque Mont-Saint-Michel and Bayeux, famed for tapestry. The whole region, in fact, is noted for its abbeys and churches, and chateaux and country houses.
Also just a short drive from Vire you'll come to the coast, where you'll find the area's well-known golden sand beaches and craggy cliffs, which have inspired artists and writers for generations. Fishing and sailing are popular activities here, as are golf and spectator sports, such as horse racing.
Hiring a car is the best way to enjoy all that Lower Normandy has to offer, and the best way to hire a car is by booking online before you arrive. Booking online will also give you an idea of the types of vehicles available for hire and give you the opportunity to search for the right deal.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card.
