We have a found a brilliant way to combine relaxation, experiencing the French culture, bathing in warm sunshine, savouring wonderful cuisine and wine, historic sightseeing, beautiful mountain and lake scenery, with Cycling!
What our customers like about these holidays is the balance. This is not about spending all day on your bike. The mornings are for the cyclist to ride with other like-minded cyclists with fully prepared routes every day, guides and with full minibus support from us, whilst your partner or family have time to relax or enjoy the numerous activities in the area. The rest of the day is yours to spend together.
We have picked two beautiful lake locations surrounded by stunning pine forested mountain scenery; Annecy and Aix-Les-Bains. If you want to simply spend the week reading a good book, whiling away some hours in a cafe and taking in the scenery, both locations make you feel instantly relaxed. If you prefer to be more active, they both have lots to offer in terms of places to visit and activities for both children and adults. Annecy and Aix-les-Bains really do have something to suit everyone.
Accommodation: We have carefully selected hotels and apartments in each location, to suit all types of experiences; fine dining, spas, children's activities and budgets and offer the best in each area. We have also stayed in nearly all of these to make sure their standard of service matches our expectations.
Unsurprisingly, Lake Annecy, known as little Venice, is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the Alps; the stunning clear waters of the lake surrounded by majestic mountain scenery and the quaint cobbled streets, intersected by the narrow canals and bridges of historic Annecy. A great place to absorb the french culture, sitting in a waterside cafe or take a gondola to see the town from another perspective.
Great for families, groups of friends and couples, these apartments, located in the medieval village of Giez, at the foot of the 12th century castle have much to offer; indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts and the international Giez golf course surrounding the apartments.Learn More
One of the best kept secrets in France. An incredibly popular destination for the French. It has all the attractions of neighbouring Annecy but is still largely undiscovered. Sitting alongside Lac Bourget and overlooked by the Mont Revard Escarpment, the town of Aix is a traditional SPA town, with several stylish thermal baths, lovely old neo-classical architecture and french boutiques, the very Grand Casino, a great place to stroll around and stop for a coffee.
