The perfect base for a self-guided cycling holiday in the Alps

Stay half board in the main bike chalet, rent the penthouse self-catered (sleeps up to 12), or if you are a big cycling group, take the whole place catered or self-catered (sleeps 13+12). Small self-catered groups can also stay at our chalet near Montalbert just above Aime (sleeps up to 6).

Alpine Velo’s self-guided cycling holidays are mainly based at our friendly bike chalet in Landry, a charming rural village just 7km from Bourg St Maurice. In the heart of the Savoie Mont Blanc region, with more high altitude road climbs than any other part of the French Alps, it’s in the perfect spot for an alpine cycling holiday and is designed with your comfort as a cyclist in mind.

The rooms in Alpine Velo Landry 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, outdoor hot tub (supplement), 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.

Small groups of up to 6 cyclists also have the choice of staying at our smaller chalet in a charming mountain hamlet just above Aime, 7km back along the valley towards Moutiers. Alpine Velo Montalbert has 2 ensuite bedrooms, a large sitting room with log stove and doors to the garden, a dining room and terraced gardens with lovely mountain views.

LARGE FRIENDLY CYCLING CHALET

There’s also a large sitting room with comfy sofas and log stove, dining room, sauna, hot tub, garden and several terraces with lovely mountain views. Non-cycling friends, partners or spouses are very welcome too (we’ve got double as well as single beds) and there’s plenty for them to do.

HEALTHY HOME COOKED FOOD

Our focus is on real food, all our dishes are cooked from scratch and we use organic or locally reared meat where we can, as well as free range chicken and eggs, and support small scale artisan producers locally and in the surrounding region.

Breakfast includes porridge and eggs as well as the standard yogurt, cereals, fruit and bread. We also make our own cakes or biscuits for afternoon tea, and provide high carb pasta salads too. Dinner is a friendly 3 course affair (wine and beer included), served outside on the dining terrace if the weather is good.
