The cyclist-run Chalet Pitu is positioned right in the centre of the beautiful, traditional and quaint village of Venosc with its 
restaurants, bars, boutiques and artisan shops. Venosc is 12km from Bourg-d'Oisans and is uniquely positioned for some of the best cycling in the Alps. It sits on one of the most picturesque and quiet climbs in the area including the ride up to the village of La Berarde on the very edge of the Ecrins national park. For those looking to emulate their heroes from the Tour de France, a number of famous climbs are within easy riding distance, including Alpe d’Huez, Col de la Croix de Fer, Col du Glandon, the Galibier and Col du Lauteret. The gondola is a 5-minute stroll from the chalet and takes mountain bikers directly to Les Deux Alpes in 6 or 7 minutes, opening up lots of world class off-road runs. The run back down to Venosc from Les Deux Alpes in particular should not 
be missed, according to cyclist owners Jodie and George. This page gives an excellent summary of local road cycling, whilst also providing lots of information for mountain bikers. Chalet Pitu itself has been recently lovingly restored to a high standard, and offers luxury accommodation for 4 adults with all the creature comforts you could expect for a memorable stay.  We speak French, Dutch, English, German & Japanese.
