Paragraphs

Finale Ligure Rocks

The classic Italian Riviera villa

After a good 12 months of searching in 2016 we secured one of the best Mountain Bike 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 has 5 bedrooms split over the middle floor. Two bedrooms share an ensuite and some enjoy sea views with balconies, the others look up to the hills behind the villa and provide a glimpse of the epic mountain bike trails hidden in those Ligurian hills. The rooms are a mix of double, twin,  triple and one quad. 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 bike holiday.

Food is as important to us as the riding, no joke!

Food is one of the most important elements of these holidays, we use local seasonal produce, as fresh as it can be. Our Chefs are highly trained with years of experience and produce some incredible food. See our sample menu below

Breakfast

  • Cereals, fruit salad, yoghurt, cheese, ham and pastries + a choice of poached or scrambled eggs, coffee, tea and juice

Dinner

  • Locally caught fish, mustard potatoes, asparagus and herb oil
  • Pear and almond tart with whipped mascarpone
  • Roast pork belly, agrodolce peppers, salsa verde and garlic potatoes, side steamed broccoli 
  • Tiramisu

Local produce served with passion

The accommodation is a traditional Italian townhouse located metres from the beach

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 Peaty's 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 years of experience behind him and also know how to ride a bike. Feel free to ask for any help with repairs and servicing etc. This is not a free service but it's very cheap, we have to feed him sometimes. 

The mountain bike 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 Rollercoaster 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. You will need to be competent on UK red and black trails for sure. If you are not then we can arrange a coach for you to allow the group to continue riding.

Our guides and what you can expect from the riding in Finale Ligure

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 and the day. We mix sessioning certain zones with a bit of exploration to keep the vibe fresh and excitement coming.

For the uplift we have VW T5’s and Ride On Noli have two 4x4's so you are travelling in style, Depending on the group size, we have many options for 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 mountain bike holidays. You’re in safe hands.

Our Riding Program on a typical week

  • Monday - We head straight up the famous Nato Base for 'chairlift laps' touring the upper and lower Feglino trails with your guide and crew. We'll try to pack as many runs in here as we can. The riding here is considered the 'easiest' of Finale's trail network but is still super fast, technical and challenging single track of varying length from 5 - 20 minute runs if completed in one hit.
  • Tuesday - We'll make our way over to the Melogno area with a view to hitting up trails like Roller Coaster and Cacciatore. On the this side of the hill the flow remains but the technicality increases with more rock, longer runs and some steeper sections to get the blood pumping.
  • Wednesday - Adventure! We'll be doing some pedalling today, a couple of big uplifts to get as high as possible, from here depending on group level and experience we'll hit up the trails of Pietra Ligure, hike Monte Carmo or make our way across to Rocche Gianche and Men's DH. Expect to pedal for around an hour.
  • Thursday - A well earned rest day to make the most of Finale town, the beach, or if you want to head up the hill for a blast there are some single uplift companies available.
  • Friday - Friday we aim to ease you back into it with a gentle lap in the morning followed by two monster trails throughout the day, depending on conditions these would be trails such as Fast & Furious or Super Groppo (from the very top of Stra Groppo). There will be some effort required to get to these but they are well worth it! Around half an hours pedalling to each. In between these trails will be some shorter laps dependent on the riding zone we are in.
  • Saturday - Greatest hits. We've been listening all week and now it's back to you guys. What do you want to ride, what do you need to tick off, where do you need that holiday snap. We'll make a plan based on what the group wants to do and blast Finale Ligure together for one more day!

Ride On Noli with the uplift service

What you can expect from your holiday in Finale Ligure

During your Finale Ligure mountain biking holiday, there will be 5 full days of uplifting, starting at 9h each morning and finishing around 17h 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! 

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 Seafood and pasta dishes in Finale are amazing with fresh fish being landed daily. San Pedro's 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, 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.

NB: Please take a look at our Track Check video's here so you can see just how epic this destination is and what to expect. 

NB: Rain can stop play in Finale Ligure. This is an eventuality we can not control, the decision not to shuttle is that of Finale Outdoor Resort. We will always move our rest day to compensate in the first instance. Further days open the possibility to ride other areas such as Varazze or San Remo dependent on the availability of their shuttle service and weather conditions there.

FLIGHTS - Please check your flight times with us before you book them to avoid long wait times at the airport, sometimes this is inevitable but we try to minimise it as much as possible with prior info!

NB: Finale Ligure is a technical and challenging area to ride your bike and you are expected to have a high level of skill and ability on a mountain bike. Most terrain you will ride compares to Red and Black runs with rocks, roots, occasional drops and gaps. The terrain changes very quickly in Finale Ligure. We recommend full face helmets, knee pads and any other protection you wish. All clients are required to have a pack with pump, tube, multi-tool, and any specific items for your bike that you predict could become an issue, for example, pivot bolts or mech hangers are highly recommended.

Latest mountain biking News and Events

After 8 years of operating in Europe and providing epic mountain biking holidays in world-class destinations such as Finale Ligure, Morzine and the Aosta valley we are so stoked to finally announce our merger with Tom Hutton MTB and the start of our UK operation.

You're about to book, your Morzine trip, but you don't know if your bike is the right one for the task or, you have a choice of bikes to bring....If you are in a rush and don't want to read the long version, it's fairly simple. If it's your first visit to Morzine, we'd probably plump for the downhill bike. You'll be giddy to hit up those gnarly bike park laps and you don't need to stray far from the lifts to have a blast. Does it limit the trails I can ride if I only have a downhill bike? Yes, the downhill bike will be hard work on the enduro trails.

You don't want to fly and and you don't want to drive. How else can you get the the Alps? Unless you are going to ride your bike there a train is the alternative. It's something different and has quite afew benefits over driving or flying to Morzine.

You're probably only going to take this option if access to the Eurostar service from London Pancras is easy for you. It's here you'll need to set off from, first hitting Paris Gare de Nord, then onto Paris Gare de Lyon then onto Geneva or Cluses, then Morzine.
