Road cycling

The Area

Our chalet is located in the heart of the Tarentaise Valley in the Vanoise National Park, this means we are a great choice for a  road cycling holidays with everything available from chalet door.  I have listed 6 great cycle rides below and the distances shown are from the chalet.  Our winter boot room doubles for bike storage in the summer.  We hove both cycled these Cols so are very knowledgeable on the area, the Col de Petit St Bernard was tackled by last years (2019) Tour de France up to La Rosiere and the Col de L'Iseran.
