Our catered bike chalet is the perfect base for a self-guided cycling holiday in the Alps

Stay half board on a room by room basis if you're a small group, or big groups can rent the whole cycling chalet sole occupancy instead (5 ensuite bedrooms / sleeps up to 15).

Alpine Velo’s self-guided cycling holidays are based at our friendly bike chalet near Bourg Saint Maurice, a laidback town in the Northern French Alps. In the heart of the Savoie Mont Blanc region, with more high altitude road climbs than any other part of the French Alps, our bike chalet is in the perfect spot for an alpine road cycling holiday.


Our cycling chalet is situated in a pretty alpine hamlet surrounded by meadows and forest, with breathtaking views across the mountain tops. The rooms are all ensuite, and some have balconies or loggias too. There are also sunny terraces with mountain views for chilling with a cold beer after your ride, an outdoor wood fired sauna, two spacious sitting rooms with comfy sofas and log stoves, a dining room, and a secure bike store with workshop area, track pump and fettling space.

Stylishly renovated, the chalet has lots of rustic alpine charm as well as modern comforts. It offers:

  • 5 ensuite bedrooms (all can be twins or doubles, and two can be a quad)
  • two large sitting rooms with log stoves
  • dining room and sun terraces
  • outdoor wood fired sauna (supplement 20€ per day)
  • WIFI, laundry facilities, and a bike store with fettling area

The restored farmhouse sits at 1100m altitude just below the ski resort of Plagne Montalbert (open in the summer and winter seasons). It’s a 6 km climb (400m total ascent) back to the house from the valley floor on a quiet country road. If you get tired or have mechanical difficulties, we’ll come and pick you up if the van’s available.


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. Dinner is a friendly 3 course affair (wine and beer included), served outside on the dining terrace if the weather is good. For an extra charge, we can also provide an afternoon tea of high carb salads and home made cakes or biscuits, and packed lunches.
