We booked the whole Chalet for a group of 20 University Students including mountain bike instructors in July 2017. From the start to finish, the owner ‘Eddy’ was very helpful. He was on call via email to answer any questions and helped point us in the right direction for mountain bike hire, lift passes and places to ride. The Chalet has a lovely set up with different apartments, allowing you to relax in your own rooms and dining areas or you can come down to the big central dining room to socialise. The rooms are fantastic, modern, freshly refurbished, clean and the whole place just has that friendly atmosphere that you long for in the Alps.
La Thuile town centre is very close to the Chalet and has some great bars and restaurants, with some amazing views and not over priced like some places in France. The mountain biking was Enduro based, which is what I wanted. There are some amazing and challenging single track MTB trails. The only problem I found with a big group was that they only had 2 blue, 2 red and numerous black trails. Which was great for the instructors and intermediate group but unlike their French competition they didn’t have many trails to help novices build up to. They were all at the extreme of there rating. With all this said though it’s a great location with Pila and other bike parks in close proximity to bounce around to.
We would definitely book again but would plan the trip better to hit more locations unless La Thuile build more trails at different levels of their grading but as a mountain biker this is a must to visit and tick off.
Thanks again Eddy, your hospitality and approach is refreshing and your Chalet is amazing I would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone and he is very Mountain Bike friendly.
