ACCOMMODATION & FOOD

We realise that your accommodation and meals are as important as great riding, and that is why we spend a lot of time and effort in finding you the perfect chalet to stay in and the best food and drink to savour.

Accommodation

Our accommodation is your home from home, comfortable, clean with stunning views and equipped with everything you may need – from powerful showers to board games.  It is a perfect place to rest, recuperate, socialise and relax in between rides and meals.

Whether you bring your own bike or hire from one of our partners, our secure bike storage will ensure your bikes are safe for the days riding ahead.

Food and Drink

We ride so we can eat… We love good food and cycling allows us to eat more than most people… especially cake!  Food, nutrition and hydration is a critical part of any sport, especially cycling.  Our fresh, home cooked, energy giving and tasty food will not be in short supply!

Our large and healthy continental breakfast will be varied and contain fresh fruits, breads, cereals, juices, tea and the all important pre-ride coffee!

Depending on the days itinerary and your preferences, lunchtimes can be varied.  Included in our standard package are your cycling snacks, enough to keep you going but not too much to slow you down.  If you would prefer a longer lunch, we are happy to use our knowledge to arrange lunches in the wonderful patisseries, vineyards, cafés and restaurants.

To keep moral up on the longer rides, it’s always important to remember that, on your return to the chalet, a delicious homemade cake will be waiting for you…

In the evening our chef will produce a tasty and wholesome three course meal – using fresh, local and seasonal produce where possible.  We provide an international menu which includes the best of Swiss cuisine, all prepared whilst you’re out exploring the stunning scenery.

During your delicious evening meals, wine will be provided.  At other times there will be an honesty bar stocked with soft drinks, beer and wine.
