As the name suggests, this is a great bike base for exploring the Maurienne Valley. The village is just north of St Michel de Maurienne and the foot of the Col du Télégraphe. Other famous cycling cols nearby include the Galibier, Croix de Fer, the Glandon, the Madeleine and the Iseran. The house has four rooms available on a B&B basis, each room with its own bathroom. There's a locked double garage with plenty of space for bike storage and maintenance. The owner, Ed, serves up a hearty breakfast of tea, coffee, fresh fruit, yoghurt, fresh breads, croissants and homemade jams. There's also a garden in front of a south-facing terrace ideal for relaxing with a glass of beer or wine after a day on the bike. Ideal for groups or solo riders. Free wifi. English, French and German spoken.
