Luxury Cycling Holidays in the French Alps and beyond

Combine the finest cycling in the French Alps with the best in Private Luxury Chalets and complete Freedom to Choose!

Having 19 years of mountain experience counts for a lot! From any/every climb or col, time trialing around Lac Annecy, to trying the world cup downhill VVT course, we can cater for your every cycling whim.  The Tour has passed through these parts since its conception with history, drama, blood sweat and tears and we can help you relive as much of that as you wish! The Dauphiné passes through regularly as does the VTT World Cup so we've got everything right here on our doorstep!

And with our Luxury Chalets, spas and support vehicles we have the facilties! Our local network ensures you have the guides, masseurs and support team to take exactly what you want out of the mountains!! Further we can tailor things excatly to your requirements, so if you fancy doing the Madeleine of a morning then that can be arranged. If on the other hand cruising the flats of the valleys, taking in the stunning views is your thing, followed by a soak in the jacuzzi and full body massage then why not!

For either option or anything in between read on...

Cyclo Courchevel

A great way to test your climbing skills against some of the best (and the rest..) local riders. The infamous finale of the finishes of Tour de France from 1997, 2000 & 2005 in Courchevel. Timed from the valley floor (Le Carrey) to Courchevel Altiport, open to all riders and all catagories, with inscription on site the "Cyclo-Courch" is run by local group Amicale Cycliste de Courchevel.

The "montee" as its knowm locally, means 17.5kms of climbing 1200m of elevation with ramps of up to 11%. The offical record is currently held by Mikael GALLEGO with 47min 05s with Leatitia ROUX holding the women's record at 56min 57s. Just for reference Alejandro Valverde achieved 42min 30s for the route as the finale climb of the Courchevel Stage on the Tour in 2005!
