Chalet Col des Aravis is at the foot of two cycling cols and right next to three stages from the 2016 Tour de France. The nearby roads are full of bikes, while for MTB there are downhill rides served by lifts and buses, and a beautiful high trail along the valley under the Aravis ridge.  It's a short drive from the motorway and close to Geneva airport.   Its available to rent self-catered. Non-cycling family members will enjoy the garden, sauna, quiet village, amazing mountain walks and swimming lake. It's one of the chalets in the background in this photo from the 2015 Criterium du Dauphine. Get in touch if you would like more information on good rides or other activities


The chalet gets used a lot in winter and high summer, but like most chalets in the alps it tends to lie empty in between, which include the best months for cycling.  For people referred from the washingmachinepost blog, I can offer the following reduced rates (weekly rates for the chalet, self catered):

Summer 2017: £800 for June , £1100 in July and August

Autumn 2016 (October, November): £600

The chalet sleeps 8. For couples, reduce the above prices by 30% except Mid July-late August.
