Explore the sweeping coastline or challenge yourself in the Préalpes

Cycle from the Alps to the Mediterranean

The warm and reliable weather of the Côte d’Azur makes it a perfect destination for cyclists of all types and we are near to some famous cols including Col d’Ez, Col de la Madone, Col de Vence and Col de Turini.
Many roads and climbs around us have been included in various editions of the Tour de France and Paris-Nice and it is a popular training location for professional athletes. Since many professional cyclists are based in this area and nearby Monaco we often encounter them out training.
As passionate cyclists ourselves we have many favourite routes that we can recommend, suitable for all levels. We can share these as .gpx files to load onto your bike computer for seamless navigation. We also offer guided rides provided you book in advance.

Cruise sweeping coastal routes and soak up the Mediteranean culture

Our great location in the Côte d’Azur means that you can just as easily challenge yourself to strenuous mountain passes as cruise along the Mediterranean coastline, basking in the sun and soaking up the culture.

Visit world-class tourist destinations such as Cannes and Nice, visit medieval towns perched on hilltops or savour fresh local produce in a cafe.

We provide secure bike storage along with a wide range of bike tools (from floor pump, pedal wrench, maintenance stand to more serious tools). You are welcome to bring your own bike or we can recommend high quality road bike rentals from our local shops
