22 Jan Motorcycling the French Alps
The Chalet is a perfect base to explore possibly some of the best riding in the World. Just the sheer splendour and magnitude of the mountains along with stunning views and scenery offers you something totally different to the UK.
Due to our central position in Paradiski, days out are endless, returning to the Chalet on an evening. You can ride around Mont Blanc, Europe’s highest mountain at 4800m. It’s always snow covered, as the name suggests. You can ride over the highest paved mountain pass in the Alps – the Col de L’Iseran just above the ski resort of Val D’Isere. This climbs to 2770 metres above sea level. You can ride over the Col de Petit St Bernard into Italy and have pizza for lunch. There are many other Cols nearby too. Photo opportunites are endless !!
You’re riding at altitudes of about 6 times higher than anything in the UK. The roads twist and turn for mile after mile after mile. The road surfaces are mostly good with excellent grip; there are no traffic jams or speed traps; you’re surrounded by snow capped peaks and tumbling glaciers; and for most of the time the sun shines brightly as well.
After a great day’s riding head back to the chalet for a welcome beer in the hottub, BBQ on the terrace and a nice comfy bed !!! All roads are tarmaced, no gravel in sight, and the parking is flat, offroad, and secure!
The Chalet sleeps up to 10 people from as little as £750 for the week Self Catered !
