“A cycling dreamland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

My wife & I met Steve & Anna on a cycling holiday in Spain, a bit of a bus mans holiday for Steve, but during the week, as we got to know a bit about them & what they offered for cycling holidays in France the seeds of a future cycling holiday were well & truly planted !
The result was that we decided to book a week doing the Classic Climbs of the Alps & have to say it was absolutely fantastic.
Steve & Anna are perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble. Anna is an excellent cook & is does the support vehicle job so well its like having your own soigneur. Steve is an excellent guide offering encouragement to riders of all abilities throughout the week to ensure everyone gets the most out of the wonderful routes that are ridden in this beautiful area.
I've been fortunate to have cycled in quite few different places in Europe but this is without doubt The Best !
Note; they also do skiing holidays which are also fantastic !

I met Steve on a cycling event in the Alps in 2011 where I won a competition and the prize was a week at his chalet cycling in the alps.
August 2012 I came here to experience cycling here and it is by far the best week of my life.
The chalet is fantastic, very homely and Steve & Anna and sidekick Ben have been brilliant hosts. Food is amazing, clean chalet and rooms are lovely.
Cycling was brilliant, you can learn about drafting, climbing, sprinting etc from Steve & Ben. We did big climbs of the Tour de France and one 165km flat race to Annecy & back.
I have learnt a lot about cycling and myself on this trip and can't reccomend this place enough. If you want a challenge then this is it.

I came here with a friend who is a cyclist. on Arrival, I was pleasently surprised with the accommodation and the owners Anna and Steve and their right hand man Ben.
The Chalet is clean and tidy, free wifi, hot showers etc. Anna would give anyone a run for their money on master chef. It was like chritmas eve and christmas day every day. Dinner was always pleasent with the other people staying ( Both Steve and Ben were great hosts and engaging with classic cycling tales and more) and the following morning, after breakfast ( once again prepared by Anna) was full of suprises for those on the Cycling holiday. Not being a cyclist, i chose to do a load of Hiking and climbing. There are many walks and climbs people can do, so the area is recommended. As for a final say, the firdge has loads of soft drinks and goodies to buy. Just to show how great the hosts are, they leave an honesty sheet on the side and you can pay for the stuff you take when you leave. Kudos.
