Cycling Holidays and Cycling the French Alps is becoming more and more popular due to the extensive coverage every year of the Tour de France, and the success of British riders such as Bradley Wiggins. We are now offering taylored cycling holidays to experience the thrill and achievement of conquering the Cols in the Haute Tarentaise featured on the Tour de France. Click here to see our Cycling Holiday Brochure.

Here in the Tarentaise Valley, The Tour de France quite often passes within 10 mins of the Chalet as we are situated very close to a few of the famous Cormet de Roselend, Col de Petit St Bernard,  Col d'Iseran and the  Col de Madeleine. These  are all rideable from the chalet door. Other Cols are nearby such as the Col de Galibier, Col de Forclaz and Col de Tamie near Lac du Annecy.

We can provide an organised cycling holiday in the French Alps  for a group of riders to come and Cycle the Cols,  providing airport pickups and vehicle back up ( Minimum 5  people). We will look after you providing all your meals in the Chalet and a packed lunch so all you have to concentrate on is making the summit.

 

Please get intouch to taylor a package for your own personal cycling holiday !

Jonny recently completed the Piste2Plage Challenge , riding 7 cols in 4 days , a gruelling 440 kms with 27,500 feet of ascent from Sainte Foy to Juan Les Pins on the Cote D'Azur, raising money for Help4Heros.

Alternatively for something a lot less energetic a tranquil pretty ride along the cycle path from Bourg St Maurice to Aime along the river, maybe more up your street.
