En-Route Hotels throughout France

A relaxing start or end to your ski holiday…

If you think that the distance involved or the timing of the ferry crossings from Ireland 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 (Lyon, Chambery, Cluses, Aix les Bains, Annecy, Grenoble, Gap, Toulouse…) 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 stopover, based on the recommended driving route to either the French Alps or the Southern Alps. However, please feel free to request a price for a different location.

Chateau de Candie, Chambery

Nestled in the heart of a 6 hectare, a forest-lined estate overlooking the town of Chambery, Le Chateau de Candie **** offers its guests the choice of 25 exquisite, individually decorated rooms and suites, boasting original period features and stunning views of the mountainous Savoie landscape.

Guests can enjoy a relaxing and restorative stay with access to a swimming pool, massages and complimentary Elemis products in every room.

With two restaurants on-site, there’s no need to look any further for an outstanding gastronomic experience. Choose between our traditional brassiere La Cantine and sample homemade French dishes from our weekly menu with a glass of Candie’s Viognier wine, made from grapes picked from the chateau’s own vineyard, or head downstairs to the Michelin recognized L’Orangerie to enjoy a unique culinary adventure.

Only 10km away from Chambery International Airport and a short car journey away from Lyon, Geneva and some of the most highly regarded ski slopes, the Chateau’s fantastic location provides the ideal base for your next trip to the Alps.
