Hotel close to the factory outlet
Guests of the Hôtel des Sources will benefit from the excellent motorway/service road connections in the Aube region for quick and easy access to many points of interest, primarily the Champagne vineyards, the Grands Lacs de Champagne and the Nigloland theme park.
Do you want to take advantage of the sales ?
At the Hôtel des Sources, you are in the right place! Our establishment is located in the immediate vicinity of the largest factory outlet in the Troyes area. In particular, you will find the McArthurGlen brand village in Pont-Sainte-Marie. Don’t miss out on any of the excitement of the centre during the sales. As it is impossible to visit all the shops in one go, take a break at the Hôtel des Sources before embarking on another day of shopping. You can even leave your car at the hotel and do your shopping on foot! And when you stay at our hotel, you’ll get an extra 10% off (on average) at the shops in the McArthurGlen centre!
Do you want to have fun?
On the way to Nigloland, don’t forget to stop at the Grands Lacs de Champagne. It's a group of three vast bodies of water (Lac d’Orient, Lac du Temple and Lac Amance) where you can take part in every conceivable water sport: sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, motorboating, water skiing, jet skiing etc. But perhaps you would prefer to fish or simply swim on the fine sandy beaches, in the middle of the protected countryside, as the Grands Lacs de Champagne are nestled in the heart of the Regional Nature Park of the Orient forest. Football fans shouldn’t miss out on a visit to the Stade de l'Aube, where Estac footballers play in Ligue 1. For opposing fans who have to make a long trip to support their favourite team, the Hôtel des Sources will allow them to recover before returning home.
Do you want to go for a walk ?
The city of Troyes in Champagne is renowned for the splendour of its historic centre, built in the Middle Ages and during the Renaissance. There are still many half-timbered houses, superbly restored and now bursting with colour. The past has bequeathed Troyes many churches, including two gothic gems: its cathedral and its basilica. Troyes’ appeal also lies in the priceless richness of its cultural heritage, which several museums that have made its reputation in France and even beyond its borders are committed to preserving: the Museum of Modern Art, the Maison de l’Outil et de la Pensée ouvrière, Cité du Vitrail etc.
But it’s the region of Aube as a whole which is well worth a visit. Côte des Bar and Colline de Montgueux are both covered with vines producing the famous Champagne, and there are many cellars open to visitors; but also Pays d’Othe, a rolling green region, almost still wild, renowned for its cider.
Aube is also home to magnificent villages labelled as “Petite Cité de Caractère” (Small Cities of Character): Bar-sur-Seine, Ervy-le-Châtel, Mussy-sur-Seine and Les Riceys with its three PDO wines, but also Essoyes (immortalised by the painter Renoir, who is buried there), which is in the process of being approved. Aube still has a wealth of heritage treasures, like the Cistercian Abbey of Clairvaux and the Camille-Claudel museum in Nogent-sur-Seine. If you like great men, visit the Napoleon museum in Brienne-le-Château (the French emperor spent a large part of his schooling there) and the village of Colombey-les-Deux Eglises in Haute-Marne, where Charles de Gaulle had his second home (La Boisserie) and where he is buried. The memorial and a giant Cross of Lorraine keep alive the memory of the former President of the Republic, liberator of France. Finally, don’t forget that Paris is only an hour and a half away by train, and only a little longer by car.
