Accommodation

Our base in Morzine is Chalet Eira. A delightful, British owned and run chalet hotel with entirely English speaking staff. It’s located just 300m from the centre of Morzine so within easy reach of shops and bars.

Built in 2001, the chalet features modern facilities throughout including free wifi. There are 18 bedrooms in twin, double and family room formats. All are ensuite with either shower & WC or bath, shower and WC. We sit at our own dedicated table for dinner which will be 3 courses and waiter served. Menus are designed for cyclists with tasty nutritious ingredients and plenty of carbs. Although drinks are not included a selection of reasonably priced wines are available for you to purchase. An extensive cyclist’s breakfast is served buffet style.

Tea and coffee is available, free of charge, at any time with freshly baked cake on hand in the afternoon for a post ride sugar boost. The chalet has an extensive lounge bar area with its own pool table and a great view across the town. The masses of comfy seating provide an ideal place for a pre-dinner drink. The bar is fully stocked and reasonably priced. In one corner is a large Sky TV so you can catch up on the latest sporting action. Leading off from the bar is a delightful terrace which is used for the weekly barbeque. On the lower floor is a large indoor hot tub which is great for easing aching limbs after a hard day’s riding.

There is a secure indoor bike storage adjacent to the front entrance for both guest bikes and our rental bikes. We have provided a selection of the usual bike maintenance kit for guest use together with, track pumps, workshop stand etc. Bike cleaning facilities, pressure washer are also on hand.
