“Tour de France holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

I enjoyed every minute of the week I was at Chalet Annabelle. The owners Mike and Jude were exceptional hosts and the service was first class. The chalet and location is beautiful, just up to road from Chamonix and sitting at the foot of Mont Blanc, a view of which I had out my skylight in my room. This area is a cycling mecca and the routes chosen by Mike took in some of the most famous climbs, with rides fully supported. The views were stunning on the cycles. Jude's evening meals were out of this world with a cake and coffee ready for us on our return every day from our day's cycling. Tour days in the alps have to be experienced, the atmosphere was electric! The travel to the tour stages was completely hassle free with Mike's knowledge on how the stages operate and his knowledge of the area. Overall, I highly recommend Chalet Annabelle and I will be back for more cycling adventures in the future!

Words cannot convey how good and hassle free this trip was.
Chalet annabel is a fabulous base for tour climbs in the alps - led by the wonderful hosts mike and Jude.
The tour climbs are amazing and only matched by the fantastic descents ,ooohhh the descents .
I am currently recommending this trip to all my cycling buddies .

Room Tip: The upstairs balcony room is fab ,especially if you take a partner who is not going to cycle

If you are looking for a first class cycling holiday there is no better place. The Alps give up a super challenge and Mike attends to every detail and is the perfect guide giving encouragement and belief to his guests. Who would have thought that Hors Cat climbs would yield to my legs! Fuelled by Jude's wonderful cooking (you will be hard pressed to find better in Chamonix restaurants!) by the end of the week you'll be racing up those gradients. When not cycling you can relax and take it easy in the hot tub, the chalet is super comfortable and a good nights rest is guaranteed wrapped in crisp quality linen. Our week was a pretty full one with the Tour de France in town, though there are plenty of other things for the whole party to do if cycling is not your thing. Mke and Jude know the area very well and will be able to assist with anything that you may want to do to fill your day.

I'll certainly be back and while I'd like to keep this haven a secret just for me .... it just would not be right to keep the rest of the world away from such a wonderful place to explore and enjoy the Alps from.

Room Tip: All rooms are of excellent quality

Best cycling vacation I've ever had. Chalet Annabelle is a wonderful place. Very good location. Mike and Jude who own and run the place are so welcoming and their hospitality is beyond words. Defently will come back.

Taking young children on a activity holiday is always going to be a gamble, but, when described as ''our best holiday ever'' is praise indeed. Many thanks to Jude and Mike for making our stay such a memorable one. The location, accomadation and hospitaliy were second to none. A great base to explore the delights of the Chamonix valley and to pack in an action packed few weeks of alpine climbing, via ferrata, cyling, horse riding and swimming. Highly recommended, we will be back
