Paragraphs

The trails in Finale Ligure are stunning

Mountain Biking on the Italian Riviera in Finale Ligure

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 one of our main passions besides bikes and we like to share it

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

  • Salt cod and prawn risotto with asparagus, peas and lemon, side green salad with lemon dressing
  • 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, 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 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.

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 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! 

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 in Finale Ligure is well worth exploring

To book your place on these epic holidays please complete the form in full below

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.

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.

£200 per person deposit is required to secure your place on the rider's week. The full balance is due 8 weeks before your arrival in Finale Ligure. Guests can arrive from 15:00 on your start day and must depart by 10:00 on your departure day. We look forward to welcoming you to Finale Ligure and showing you some of the amazing trails and riding that this fantastic MTB destination has to offers.

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!

We're seconds away from picking you up and driving along the Ligurian Coast to Finale Ligure, pseudo home of the EWS and the place to be if you want bikes, beach, beers and and all round great time.

Morzine has begun it's hibernation, the trails are being worked on ready for next summer, the lifts are closed and the restaurants are busy cleaning. It's time for Netflix, carpentry and tiling for many of the Portes du Soleil locals.

If you've spent a decent amount of time in the Portes du Soleil, chances are your mind wonders to what lies beyond the bike park. Morzine and it's surrounding neighbours Les Gets, Chatel, Morgins and Champery have some of the greatest riding, and certainly some of the most beautiful terrain on the planet to ride your bike.
