En-Route Hotels throughout France with Pyrenees Collection



A relaxing start or end to your ski holiday…


If you think that the distance involved or the timing of the channel crossings mean that you will have too much driving in a day, then put your mind at rest by booking an overnight stop in an en-route hotel.

Or why not benefit from an extra day's skiing before and/or after your holiday? Spend Friday night in a hotel close to your resort and enjoy a full day on the slopes before checking into your accommodation on Saturday afternoon.

We can suggest convenient locations, such as Calais, Lens, Troyes, Dijon… and we will take care of arranging it all for you. You will find below a selection of our most popular locations as an ideal stop over, based on the recommended driving route to either the French Pyrenees. However, please feel free to request a price for a different location.

Driving Times


You will be surprised at how much energy children will have (even after a hard day's skiing) therefore a residence that has a pool will be a god send, as will any sort of games room. Some resorts offer other activities such as ice rinks, husky dog sledging, snow shoeing and bowling alleys. These are all excellent alternatives to skiing if the children get tired of the slopes on any day.
