Calvados is a department in the Lower Normandie region of France which is home to the town of Vire. Its name is based on its location close to the Vire River, and it dates back to the Medieval times when it was first established. The town sits on a rocky area just above the river.
Vire is nestled between Mont-Saint-MIchel and Caen, and it is accessible by road when coming from those other cities. Another practical and fast way to reach downtown Vire is by train, with the rail station located just two minutes from Vire's core. Car hire in Vire Downtown is also available in that area.
The town was destroyed during the bombings of World War II but most of its main attractions were restored a year after the war. Cheap car hire in Vire Downtown lets you see those attractions according to your own schedule. Take your time exploring the 13th century Porte Horloge gateway as well as the Castle Donjon.
The bocage-virois is the region surrounding the town and it is home to the scenic Route des Gorges de la Vire, which leads to granite cliffs and wooded valleys. You can also use your car rental in Vire Downtown to access the villages in the outlying areas including Le Beny-Bocage and Vassy.
Having a car is also practical for going on day trips to other major destinations in Basse-Normandie. Drive to the regional capital, Caen, which lies 54 minutes away via the D577a and the A84. You can also consider visiting Deauville, a beach resort located an hour and 30-minute drive away from Vire via the A13.

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. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
