Where to stay

Luchon is a buzzing town, with plenty of apres ski fun and plenty of choices for accommodation; hotels, self-catering, B&Bs, chalets, apartments and large houses for groups. See our holiday directory for some tried and tested suggestions or visit Luchon’s tourist information site for an exhaustive list of the options.
