French term or phrase: Villages étape
L'appellation « Village étape » est attribuée par le ministère de l'Écologie, de l'Énergie, du Développement durable et de la Mer (MEEDDM) aux communes ayant déposé un dossier de candidature, répondant aux critères d'admissibilité au label et respectant une charte de qualité en matière de services, d'accueil et d'hôtellerie. Le label, attribué pour cinq ans, est renouvelable.

Comme c'est un label, je pensais le laisser tel quel et mettre une explication entre parenthèse mais j'ai peur que ça ne soit trop long :
"Villages étape (Villages near a motorway or dual carriage-way providing a complete set of services and amenities)" ou bien le traduire par "stopover villages" ... Qu'est-ce que vous en pensez ?

neutral  writeaway: such press releases are not necessarily written by native English speakers. Linguee alone is risky as ref.

neutral  B D Finch: How do you justify translating "villages" as "towns"? Linguee trawls up loads of bad translations.

  -> Your usually kind comments... Yes, village is village, and not town.

neutral  AllegroTrans: Those would be "villes"
