Service

Gruelling alpine climbs, fast adrenaline-laced descents, fantastic mountain scenery – you’ll experience it all on a fixed based cycling holiday or short break at Alpine Velo’s friendly catered bike chalet near Bourg Saint Maurice in the Northern French Alps. Our minimum stay is 3 nights, and airport transfers are included too!

Our cycling chalet is in a fabulous spot for riders looking for challenging hill climbs and ascents. There are many classic high altitude climbs accessible straight from the door, including the Courmet de Roseland, Col de la Madeleine, and the Col de l’Iseran, as well as lesser known ones such as Notre Dame du Pre and La Plagne. We are also in 1-2 hours drive of other famous cols including Alp d’Huez, Forclaz, Glandon, Aravis, and Galibier.

We can design an itinerary and level of support to suit your group’s needs and interests. Either go it alone and plan your own routes using our route maps and notes to help you, book our support van for half a day or your entire stay, or even hire a guide if you wish. The prices on this site are example prices only. The actual price will depend on your group’s size, number of nights and the level of service you require.

Prices can include

  • Return airport transfers for you and your bike
  • Tailor-made itinerary with route maps and notes
  • Support vehicle with or without a guide (minimum 1/2 day)
  • Full or half board accommodation in an ensuite room (most have a balcony or terrace access)
  • Use of the chalet facilities including the sauna, WIFI, laundry facilities, terraces, bike store, workbench, track pump and fettling area

Accommodation

Alpine Velo’s friendly bike chalet is in the perfect spot for self-guided alpine road cycling holidays. Located in a charming alpine village just 7km along the riverside cycle path from Bourg St Maurice, you have easy out and back access to many high altitude road climbs straight from the door.

The rooms are all ensuite, and most have balconies too. There are several sunny terraces with mountain views for chilling with a cold beer after your ride, a sauna, spacious sitting room with comfy sofas and log stove, dining room with a large communal table, and a secure bike store with workshop area, track pump and fettling space.

Non-cycling companions are very welcome too and there’s plenty for them to do in the surrounding area. We can book activities and design an itinerary if required.

Location

Climb a different col every day, mixing and matching ride lengths, altitude and gradients according to your appetite and stamina. There are plenty of high altitude mountain passes to choose from in our local area, and as an added bonus, our luxury cycling chalet is in the valley, so you ride out and return along the flat each day.

We are 1km from the riverside bike path to the lively town of Bourg St Maurice (7km), with riverside cafes and restaurants en route. There’s also a bar and restaurant in the village, and a corner shop.
