Road Cycling

Alpine Adventure can arrange cycling day trips or week long itineraries. We can arrange bike hire and have plenty of secure bike storage space at La Vieille Ferme de la Moussiere. Support vehicles to accompany you on longer rides can also be arranged.

Food

All of our chalet menus are lovingly crafted by Mark. He spends literally hundreds of hours throughout the year trying out new ingredients and flavor combinations; tasting and tweaking until he’s happy with the dishes on offer. We only use high-quality ingredients and source products locally and seasonally wherever possible. We don’t try to be “fine-dining”; but want to offer hearty home-cooked dishes that are delicious and stylish and which will fill you up after an action-packed day on the roads.

Little things like offering fresh milk (not long-life), home-making all of our own sauces, chutneys and dressings; baking our cakes, croissants and desserts daily in-house and using fresh not frozen produce add an extra bit of sparkle to our already delicious menus. We make sure that the menus are varied and well balanced and that if Mark himself is not cooking, the chalet chef is just as enthusiastic, talented and experienced as he is.

Welcome Canapés and bubbly - Let us welcome you to Morzine with a glass of bubbly and a selection of delicious canapés.¹ We also offer an honesty bar which is restocked daily. You can enjoy a glass of wine in-front of the fire, or a pint of beer and a game of pool whenever you wish.

Breakfast - Kick-start each morning with a delicious continental breakfast.² Freshly baked breads, warm croissants and pastries, a selection of cereals, yogurts, jams and fruit, cheese and cold-meat platters, eggs and bacon, fresh fruit juice and a selection of hot-drinks. Our staff are always available at breakfast time to give you the latest snow report and help you to decide where would be the best place to ski that day.

Afternoon-Tea - Freshly baked cakes will be waiting for you on your return from the ski-slopes each day². A selection of different teas (including earl-grey and PG tips), fresh Italian coffee, hot-chocolate and soft drinks are always available in the lounge area too.

Dinner - Evening meals consist of three delicious courses followed by a coffee/tea and chocolates. A separate menu is available for vegetarians. Dinner time is usually around 7:30 but we can work around the time that suits you best. We offer a varied menu combining local and French classics with our favourite dishes from all over the world.

Children’s Menus - We regularly cater for children and want to make sure that they enjoy their meals at the chalet as much as their parents do. All children are different so we are are happy offer separate, child-specific menus for the little ones, or for them to eat the same meals (or a simplified version) as their parents. Child menus can be served in the early evening, or at the same time as the adult menu - you can choose whatever suits your family best. We will contact you before you arrive and the more information that you can give us on the types of food that your children like to eat, the better. If they have any firm favourite dishes or any major dislikes we will take these into account and try to offer a menu that will put a smile on their faces.

Accommodation

Location

The mountains surrounding Morzine are popular with cyclists from all over the world. The Tour de France regularly passes through the area and has made the challenging climbs up the region’s mountain passes famous. Whether you want to challenge yourself and conquer one of the formidable cols or simply enjoy a family day out amidst some beautiful scenery, this is the area for you!

Cycling is also the perfect way to travel around and take in the spectacular scenery of the Portes du Soleil.

Example Itinerary:

  • Col du Corbier

This extremely steep climb passes by a few scattered villages including Le Biot, with its open market hall and old chalets. The ride offers superb views of the Vallée d’Aulps and then Abondance valley.
