Just had an awesome week with Anna at the MTB Chalet. I've been coming here for years and it never disappoints. The riding in Les Arcs is awesome, miles and miles of flowing single track as well as bike park trails. The chalet is mega, the alpine views are stunning and Anna's cooking is something else! I highly recommend this place, I'll be back next year especially as they've now got a hot tub as well!
Amazing Chalet, Anna Leanne and Nathan were the best hosts I could ask for, very helpful, very friendly, and very good cooks. Food was amazing at the chalet and the chalet is kept very clean and is in the perfect place for a great mountain bike holiday!
My 9yo son and I spent 6 days at The Mountain Bike Chalet in August, on a biking holiday. It couldn't have been more perfect. Everything was spot on. I'm trying hard to find any constructive criticism...maybe the shower could've been slightly more powerful?!! read on.... We had the fortune to share the chalet with the owners of the property whilst there (they enquired beforehand if this was acceptable), whose hospitality was brilliant. My son hung out with their children, who all got on famously, leaving me to chat and drink wine/beer with the adults, Tris, Helena and Ted. Really, really lovely people, and great company. Anna and Leanne and Nath were the Chalet hosts for the week and the food was 5*, always served with smiles and friendly advice about the local area. We were made to feel totally at home at all times by everyone. From the extensive breakfast to the tasty packed lunches, to the home made post-ride cakes, to the delicious 3 course meals each evening, everything was cooked freshly, no processed foods, and the variety was brilliant. The Chalet itself is a beautiful traditional alpine building, lovingly restored with ample character. Our room was clean, comfortable, spacious and quiet at night. The large open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area is the highlight. Two glorious balconies with views to die for. Loads of space, Large TV, very cheap honesty bar, etc etc, Just perfect! The basement has ample secure bike storage, lots of bike tools and stand etc. And a great bike wash just outside the door. The lifts are just an easy ten minute pedal in the morning, and it's all back downhill at the end of the day. The trails are superb, in great condition with amazing scenery. The weather was fantastic too. They also offer airport transfers on a weekend from and to Geneva. An easy 2.5 hours. If you love Mountain biking (or hiking or skiing or just sitting admiring views), and great scenery, and great food, and traditional alpine architecture and hospitality, The Mountain Bike Chalet is a must. Seriously, you will not be disappointed.…
I went with a large group for a riding holiday around Les Arcs. The accommodation is excellent, very nice chalet with great facilities. The staff are friendly and do a great job of keeping riders well fed and give great advice for where to ride. The workshop is a little basic so worth taking some tools. The riding in the area is more suited to trail / enduro bikes rather than downhill.
Stayed in the Mountain Bike Chalet at the end of August and had a fab time. The accomodation, lounge area and food were all top class and great value for the price. Staff helpful, chalet clean and there was a very secure area to store the bike with a workshop. The weather good, the lift queues non-existent and the biking was superb. The trails around Les Arc are amazing and you could ride for weeks and never get board. The diversity of trails from mountain ridges, tight single track and the usual bike park fun can all be found here. If the trails were developed I would say this area would be a rival for Whistler.....only much larger. Cant wait to go back!
