As with all of our Riders Weeks MTB Holiday accommodation there is always a hot tub and Chalet Chapelle is no exception. At the back of the property facing out towards the Pleney is a large hot tub. This can be use day and night until 10pm and is great for relaxing and giving those battered muscles and good soaking. There are also two steam rooms in the chalet that can be used on request.

The workshop will have all the common tools you would expect to see in a bike workshop and more specific tools so the mechanic can undertake wheel builds, fork services and bearing changes to keep you rolling on your MTB holiday in Morzine. This is a great area down here with some tables and chairs, sofa and table football, So be it bikes, beers or games we got you covered.

The 2017 season in Morzine has now come to a close and what a season it has been. With new tracks in both Chatel, Champery and Morzine, it's safe to say that bike life in the alps has never been better.

The Pleney secret trails in Morzine can be a dark and dangerous place, these root infested tracks intertwine and creep their way down through the dense woods that populate the Pleney hillside.
