Located in Doussard, this self-catering apartment (sleeping 6-8) has a garage for bikes and is perfect for exploring the Annecy area. Of all the locations in the Alps, Annecy is the one perhaps best suited to all ages and abilities when it comes to cycling. There is a rich Tour de France heritage here, with a time trial route around the lake; Col de la Forclaz via Montmin and Doussard; and Les Semnoz, which was the finish of the centenary tour’s penultimate stage. But for smaller or less-experienced riders, there's also a dedicated 35km cycle route that runs from Annecy, along the lake and then through countryside to Ugine, towards Albertville. It's a converted railway route that's been extended recently so that the lake is almost completely circumnavigable from Doussard. Alan, the owner of Residence-les-Gentianes, is keen to help cyclists explore this (and other) great routes. With the micro-climate around the lake, you can ride here even during winter. Alan can provide lots of helpful information about the exciting possibilities the area has to offer – just drop him a line.
