Roanne, a town to explore
|In December 2008 the town of Roanne opened “Le Scarabée” (the Beetle), a new facility hosting cultural and commercial events. This site is situated 8 minutes from the hotel and houses the major events of the Roanne area such as the “Foire du Roannais” fair or the “Salon de la Gastronomie” (food fair).
In the town centre, only 9 minutes from the hotel, you will find a large convention centre that hosts various events such as “Les Folies Textile” (fashion show).
The Roanne area is bursting with places of interest – museums, churches, châteaux and historic market towns such as Charlieu – and has a lot to offer in terms of ecotourism and boat tours. The town centre of Roanne is only 5 minutes from the hotel.
The town possesses two multi-purpose stadia (one of them located in the town of Mably), including the “Halle des Sports”, home of the Chorale Roanne Pro A basketball team, as well as a modern leisure centre.
The capital of textile design and of “living the good life”, Roanne can be both elegant and festive.
A stroll through the old centre will lead you from historic market squares to pedestrian streets, open and covered markets, a medieval castle and a 19th-century Italian-style theatre. With its colourful façades and trompe-l’oeil paintings, Roanne is also a port, a town of bridges over the river Loire.
Roanne invites you to dine out, take part in cultural events and go shopping! It is the best place for outlet stores and bargain hunting.
Whether you’re looking for designer clothes or table linen, you can find them in shops, outlet stores or annual fairs like the “Folies Textiles” show in autumn and spring.
