Chalet accommodation with food

After the huge success of the past three years the Riders Weeks are back and we have decided to host them every week from the 01/07 - 26/08 for the 2017 summer season out here in Morzine. For the 2017 summer MTB season we are running the Riders Weeks from a new property, Chalet Flo, this property sleeps up to 22 people over 9 en suite bedrooms. The Chalet has a hottub, steam room, on site mechanic, rental bikes, bar, huge garden, secure bike storage, ParkTools work shop with stands track pumps and tools, cleaning brushes and Karcher bike jet wash. There is free Juice Lubes cleaning, grease, oil, suspension, tyres sealant etc for all the guests to use. We also have pub bikes and yes you can do skids on them!

Chalet Flo is a great chalet and also our largest in Morzine, this chalet sleeps up to 22 people over 9/10 en suite bedrooms. The chalet is perfectly set up for large groups with its spacious rooms, large dining area and professional kitchen ready to cook up some hearty grub after a hard days riding. There is also a huge beautiful garden and terrace area  with table tennis and recliner chairs enjoying the amazing view of the mountain peaks that surround Morzine, the Pleney, Nyon and up towards Avoriaz. 

 

Chalet Flo benefits from every facility you could imagine to see in a MTB specific chalet in the Alps and more. For 2017 we have an onsite mechanic who will help with all repairs and give the best advice possible on bike set up and parts. This service is not free but a lot cheaper than any in town and specifically for mtbbeds guests only. The chalet also benefits from a huge bike storage area, dry room and a bar/bike/beer area down stairs which is great for chatting about bikes and sharing knowledge. There is a large outdoor hottub seating 8 people and the steam room seating another 8, you wont see one of them anywhere else..  

 

Chalet Flo has a huge garden at the front of the chalet with ample chairs, tables, recliners, and a large decking that leads out from most bedrooms providing instant access to the garden and the morning sun. The garden also has a table tennis table the parking for the property is directly opposite with enough space for 10 cars. 

Chalet Flo has 9/10 en suite bedrooms, these consist of twins, triple and quad family rooms. Double rooms can be made up with mattress toppers and two single beds joined together, however sometime it's nice to have a little space from the bed hogger so enjoy it.. Each bedroom is ensuite, some with standing showers, some over the bath and some with separate toilets also so they are well equipped for all bathroom requirements. Many of the room enjoy the large decking out the front of the chalet and have direct access to this, others have baloneys with stunning views up to the mountains and valleys of the Portes du Soleil. 

 

Chalet Flo also boasts a large sociable lounge area with sofas, flat screen TV and full WiFi is available through out the chalet. The lounge area is part of a huge open plan living / diner / kitchen area which is very sociable and great to have a chat with fellow guest after riding or chill out in your own space and relax until dinner. The lounge/dining area also opens up onto a great big balcony with sofas, chairs and a BBQ which will be used to cook on one night during your stay, you are also welcome to use it any day for breakfast or lunch.  

 

The chalet is located 15 minute max walk into the center of Morzine and about 10 minutes to the Super Morzine lift giving you access to the vast Portes du Soleil Mountain bike area and trails. Riding your bikes to the lift and back to the chalet is very easy as the road is flat as a pancake and takes 5 minutes. For the evening, if you want to venture into town for a beer or on the staff night off and don't fancy walking fear not we have a fully fledged fleet of pub bikes and yes you can do as many skids as you wish on them... 

Food is one of the most important elements of a holiday in our opinion as its your fuel, our professional chef Tiffany has been serving up an absolute storm for the past 3 years as is set to continue for a few years yet. With inspiration taken from family dishes and many years working in professional restaurants every main and desert is one to enjoy, we rarely see a scrap left. Dinner is served from 7:45pm and breakfast from 8-9:30am, if you get "stuck" at the pub we will leave in in the oven for you.
