The trails in Finale Ligure are stunning
It's been a tough task but we have manage to find one of the best MTB holiday villas in Finale Ligure located only metres from the beach and the centre of town it’s self. The Villa is a grand traditional Italian townhouse with amazing character spread out across 3 levels with a stunning rooftop terrace for eating and socialising and huge rear court yard for cleaning, tinkering and fixing up bikes. This is the perfect villa for any Finale Ligure MTB holiday.
The Villa has 6 bedrooms split over the bottom 2 floors, 3 bedroom are ensuite and some enjoy sea views with balconies, the others look up to the hill behind the villa and provide a glimpse to the epic trails hidden in those hills. The rooms are a mix of double, twin and triple rooms, The villa has been renovated in areas and there is a great mix of old Italian architecture and modern fixtures that provides a great place to stay whilst in Finale Ligure. Whilst the mountain biking in Finale Ligure is our number one priority we also want you to experience the culture of this amazing town as thats what really makes your Finale Ligure MTB holiday one to remember, it's coffee, cold beers and Galeto all round.
The Villa is well equipped with internal bike storage and all the tools / stands / pumps you would need for general repairs whilst out riding with us. There is also a Karcher jet wash and free Juice Lubes products for all clients to use at the Villa as Finale Ligure can be quite hard on the bikes and it’s good to keep them in check, it’s a long way back to the beach with a mechanical. Yes beach!
The trails out in Finale Ligure are amazing in every sense of the word and you really have to ride them for yourself to believe what's out here. They range from smooth, fast and flowy to savagely rocky, tight and technical, there really is something for everyone, it’s no wonder they hold the Enduro world series in Finale Ligure. Trails such as Roller coaster provide endless smooth, flowy berms that continue until you can't hold on anymore, then you have Mini Champery and we all know what that means, steep and technical.
Our guides from Ride On Noli have been building and riding these trails for years and know exactly where to take you based on ability and weather conditions so you will have the best time on the trails possible. The trails range from anything between 4 minutes to 1 hour in length depending on the area you are riding, the shorter trails are normally sessioned in the morning or afternoon and the long descents before lunch and again before that evening beer.
For the uplift the guys at Ride On Noli have 2 VW T5’s so your are travelling in style and also what they call the ghetto truck, it's a Nissan Navara pick up and it's amazing. Depend on the group size we have many options with transport the uplifts and trails we ride. There is a proper bike trailer so no bashing about in the back of a van, it’s a professional set up these guys run and that’s why we work with them.
On the week in Finale Ligure there will be 5 full days of uplifting, starting at 8:30 each morning and finishing around 5:30 each evening. The trails out here are so good you don't want to stop but trust us you need a midweek day off to chill on the beach, explore the town or take a few pedal ups to the town tracks which can be accesses by a 20 minute pedal from the villa. There is a reason the guide Paolo’s nickname is the Punisher, he can ride all day like a boss!

The town area of Finale Ligure also has a lot to offer, from the old town and it’s cobbled streets with hidden shops and restaurants to the bar lined plaza square area with it’s lively nightlife, beach front eatery and our favourite bar, San Pedros with great service and crisp beers each night. The Beach is another huge pull to Finale Ligure with it’s Mediterranean temperatures meaning it’s warm enough to swim all year and when the sun’s out the beach is full of people basking on it. There is also some great surf in Finale Ligure in the winter months so keep your eyes peeled for that.
