Paragraphs

The trails in Finale Ligure are stunning

Mountain Biking on the Italian Riviera in Finale Ligure

After a good 12 months of searching we have secured one of the best MTB villas in Finale Ligure located only metres from the beach and the centre of town. 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, as well as a huge rear courtyard for cleaning, tinkering and fixing up your bikes.

The Villa

The Villa has 5 bedrooms split over the middle floors. 2 bedroom are semi ensuite and some enjoy sea views with balconies, the others look up to the hill behind the villa and provide a glimpse of the epic MTB trails hidden in those Ligurian hills. The rooms are a mix of double, twin and triple rooms. Our Finale Ligure mountain biking accommodation has been renovated in some areas and there is a great mix of old Italian architecture and modern fixtures that provides a great place to stay whilst on this epic mountain biking holiday.

 

The Villa is well equipped with an internal bike store and all the tools, stands and bike 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!

We also have an in house mechanic on site who has year of experience behind him and also know how to ride a bike, very fast. Feel free to ask for any help with repairs and servicing etc. This is not a free service but it's very cheep, we have to feed him sometimes. 

The MTB 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, full on downhill, steep and technical.

Bike life at the villa

Our guides from Ride On Noli have been building and riding the Finale Ligure mountain biking trails for years and know exactly where to take you based on ability and weather conditions so you will have the best time on these trails. The trails range from anything between four minutes to one hour in length depending on the area you are riding, including Enduro and Downhill styles of riding. The shorter trails are normally sessioned in the morning or afternoon and the long descents before lunch and again before that well earned 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! Depending 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 or box trailer. It’s a professional set up these guys run and that’s why we work with them for our Finale Ligure MTB holidays. You’re in safe hands.

Ride On Noli with the uplift service

During your Finale Ligure mountain biking holiday, there will be 5 full days of uplifting, starting at 8:30/9 each morning and finishing around 17:30 each evening. The single track trails out here are so good you don't want to stop riding, but trust us you need a midweek day off to chill on the beach, explore the Italian Riviera or take a few pedal ups to the town tracks which can be accessed by a 20 minute pedal from the villa. There is a reason the MTB guide Paolo’s nickname is the Punisher, he can ride all day like a boss! 

Waiting to drop in at the top of the Men's Downhill

Finale Ligure Mountain Biking Holidays

The town area of Finale Ligure also has a lot to offer, from the old town of Finale Borgo and it’s cobbled streets with hidden shops and restaurants to the bar lined plaza square area with its lively nightlife and beachfront restaurants. The Sea food and pasta dishes in Finale are amazing with fresh fish being landed daily. San Pedros is our favourite bar with great service and cool, crisp beers each night. 

The Beach is another huge pull to Finale Ligure. With Mediterranean temperatures it’s warm enough to swim all year round 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.

The town and the beach is well worth exploring

Latest mountain biking News and Events

A week before round 8 of the Enduro World Series in Finale Ligure, the course was yet to be announced. Riders that were already in town, sipping espresso and guzzling gelato, eagerly awaited the map. They know Finale Ligure to be one of the most gruelling, exciting, challenging and spectacular rounds of the series.

Getting to Finale Ligure, there are two ways to get to Finale although flying is what we would suggest in terms of cost & ease of travel. However if you are in a large group or fancy a road trip there are plenty of amazing riding destinations on the way down such as, Pila, La Thuile and Morzine. Driving also allows you to bring more gear and bikes should you have them.

 

So here it is, the night before you head off on your trip to Finale Ligure, your brain isn't thinking straight, you are filled with excitement and probably busy watching all your favourite mountain bike films when you should be packing for the trip.
