Our bike chalets are the perfect base for a self-guided cycling holiday in the Alps

Stay half board on a room by room basis in our main bike chalet, Alpine Velo Landry. Big groups can rent it sole occupancy too. Small groups can enjoy Alpine Velo Montalbert instead (sleeps 4 to 8). Both are close to Bourg Saint Maurice. 

Alpine Velo’s self-guided cycling holidays are based at our friendly bike chalets 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 chalets are in the perfect spot for an alpine cycling holiday and are designed with your comfort as a cyclist in mind.

You can stay either in Landry (800m), a charming rural village in the valley just 7km from Bourg St Maurice along the riverside bike path, or, if you’re a group of 4 to 8, in our restored farmhouse chalet (1100m) in a pretty mountain hamlet near the ski resort of Montalbert. The rooms in both chalets are all ensuite, and some have balconies too. There are also sunny terraces with mountain views for chilling with a cold beer after your ride, a sauna, spacious sitting rooms with comfy sofas and log stoves, dining rooms with large communal tables, and a secure bike store with workshop area, track pump and fettling space.

LARGE FRIENDLY CYCLING CHALET (sleeps up to 13 + 12)

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.

Other chalet facilities include:

  • Dining terrace & BBQ area
  • Library area with maps, route suggestions & cycling guide books
  • Infrared sauna
  • Outdoor wood fired hot tub (400€ supplement, sole occupancy groups only)
  • Laundry service
  • WIFI internet, DVD library, books and games
  • Secure bike store
  • Workshop area with basic tools, track pump, repair stand & bike washing facilities

See our gallery for more photos of the chalet.

Alpine Velo Montalbert (sleeps 4 to 8)

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

  • 4 ensuite bedrooms (all can be twins or doubles, and two can be a quad), and two optional additional bedrooms (extra charge)
  • a large sitting room with log stove
  • dining room and sun terraces
  • outdoor wood fired sauna (supplement 40€ per day)
  • WIFI, laundry facilities, and a bike store with fettling area.

Be warned, there’s a bit of a climb back up to the chalet (7km / 400m ascent), but it’s a quiet road. The 2019 Tour will ride it too in July!

 

HEALTHY HOME COOKED FOOD

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.
