Hotels on service and rest areas on the A6 motorway

Many of us have had a hard time at the end of a day on a long trip on the motorway. There are signs that do not deceive, the eyes that tire, we open the window, turn up the sound of the radio, nibble here and there.

Hôtels on A6 motorway rest areas

On the A6 motorway, between Paris and Lyon, here are two rest areas where you can book a hotel room. No need to get off the motorway: you fill up the car, eat and sleep without leaving the motorway!

Hotel Kyriad Nemours – Nemours Darvault rest area

Less than an hour from Paris Porte d’Orléans.
On the way to Paris, this rest area is called Aire de Darvault.
In the direction of Beaune and Lyon, it is called Aire de Nemours.

In the direction of Paris
The Kyriad Nemours Hotel is located immediately at the entrance of the rest & service area. Be careful to turn right immediately at the entrance to the rest area so you can park in the hotel’s parking lot.
At this rest area, you will fill up your car the next day, when leaving the hotel.

In the direction of Lyon
A footbridge, with restaurants, allows motorists heading towards Lyon to reach the Kyriad Nemours Hotel.
It is a pedestrian bridge only. See our advices further down.

Hotel Ibis Auxerre Sud – Venoy Soleil levant rest area

Less than two hours from Paris.
If you go North, this rest area is called Aire de Venoy Soleil Levant.
If you head South towards Lyon, the area is called Aire de Venoy.

In the direction of Paris
The Ibis Auxerre Sud hotel is located at the exit of the rest area. So make sure to fill up your car before you get to the hotel!

In the direction of Lyon
The Ibis Auxerre Sud hotel is not accessible without leaving the motorway: there is no footbridge to reach the Venoy Soleil Levant area where the Ibis Auxerre Sud hotel is located.
If you wish to stay at this hotel, leave the motorway at the previous exit, Exit 20 Auxerre Sud: the hotel is accessible once off the motorway, it is one of the closest to the exit.

Mâcon La Salle Hotel – Mâcon La Salle rest area

About an hour from Lyon.
This rest area is a major service area of the A6 motorway (the A6 being one of the busiest motorways in Europe).

In the South‐North direction, it is called Aire de Mâcon La Salle. In the direction of Lyon, it is called Aire de Mâcon Saint Albain.

In the direction of Paris
Hotel Mâcon La Salle is logically located on the area accessible towards Paris. It is located at the exit of the service area. So be sure to refuel before you reach the hotel parking lot!

In the direction of Lyon
In the other direction, towards Lyon, the Ibis Styles Mâcon Saint Albain La Salle Hotel is now closed.
A footbridge, with restaurants (including a McDonalds), allows motorists heading towards Lyon to reach Hôtel Mâcon La Salle.
It is a pedestrian bridge only. See our advices below.

Our advices

Before you leave home
Check to see if you will need to use the foot bridge to access the hotel.
If that is the case, you should not forget to pack your luggage accordingly. You should take into account that you will have to walk about 300 metres to reach the hotel: put everything you need for the night in a small separate bag! Also plan what you need in case of rain.…

Really in a hurry?
If you are in a real hurry, you will save some time sleeping at a rest area: you will not have to get off the motorway, you can refuel the car at the same time. And then, no worries, the essential is available on the rest area.

But do we have it, who dreams of sleeping in a hotel on a rest area or spending an evening there? It’s very practical, but it lacks a little charm, a little romance. Don’t you think so ?

Come on, a little effort, push to the next exit. There will certainly be a hotel in a more friendly setting, restaurants that actually cook and maybe you will have time to stroll around the nearby city centre.

Choose an exit

In any case, make the most of your stopover at one of the rest and service areas on the A6 motorway.
