Thank you for making me feel so welcome in Morzine. The week was one which I will never forget and I hope to return one summer before I feel too old to cycle - hopefullly not for another 20 years. The meals (especially the deserts) were delicious.

Awesome week!
19th June 2016

Yet another excellent week in the Alps thanks to you guys. Despite the absence of Lewis - which got us worried at the start ๐Ÿ˜‰ - the food was excellent, well done you. The technical and coaching support was excellent too. The rain didn't manage to make us give up and that's also thanks to your enthusiasm (!) I will be back again next year and will bring along friends I hope to share the amazing experience. Have a lovely (sunny ?!?!) summer and I hope I'll see you soon! Sophie

Yet another excellent week…
18th June 2016

Mike and Anna were the most welcoming, helpful and generous hosts we could have wished for. Wonderful days on the slopes followed by evenings of merriment and laughter with lovely wine and even lovelier home cooked food. The chalet is ideally situated for accessing both the slopes and the aprรจs ski. A massive thanks to you guys, especially as this was my first time skiing, you've turned me into a ski addict. I Love it and I'll most definitely be back. Cannot recommend 45 degrees north enough!

Thank you for an unforgettable week of great cycling, food & awesome times. I will not forget this week in a long time! It seems that the enjoyment of the week goes hand in hand with your hardwork & hospitality which really made us feel at home at teh end of a hard days ride. Here's to new friendships and look forward to the catchup ride in London. See you in 2016?

Thank you very much for this week in paradise!
Anna, for your patience getting me up the hills.
Chris & Mike for the support & faultless organisation (get going even with a flat tyre!)
Lewis for the amazing food & puddings.
A special mention to the tartiflette which was tasting just like home!
Thanks for making this a wonderful trip for a beginner like me.

Anna, Chris & Mike,
What a wonderful week it has been for us. Your absolute professional yet casual approach was a positive. Thank you for your tolerance towards a couple of novice riders. Also, your invaluable cycling tips.

Lewis, your meals were all wonderful and very much appreciated at the end of a hard days ride. The cakes were a bonus - all tasty.

Best wishes for your new venture and we will return.

Thanks to Anna, Chris, Mike & Lewis. As a non-cyclist I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the chalet. You local knowledge, personal touches (i.e. cake!) and laid back approach make for a fabulous time. I did a number of walks in the area and all had fabulous views, physical challenge and endless fresh air. Thank you each and every one of you. Great work! Stacey ๐Ÿ™‚

12th August 2015

Last week of an amazeballs week, sitting here looking out over the amazing vista. I came to you an (almost) brokenman, sick & unsure if I could make it. But I'm so glad I made the decision to come. You supported me, coached me & encouraged me up climbs I'd never thought possible with the lure of flapjacks, bread pudding and the oh so rare opportunity to try and beat Chris. You paced me, attacked me & tried to break me ๐Ÿ™‚ but I leave here supprisingly refreshed, revitalized and relaxed. My day out at the Tour is an experience I'll never forget (a bit like Mike's pink jersey) and I'd just like to thank you for everything this week. I really hope this venture is a roaring success, you guys really deserve it. Many thanks, Emmet (of Ireland - its my land) + Norge.

p.s. Lewis - your cooking is legendary!

An amazeballs week!
24th July 2015

I've been to lots of different places and done lots of different things, but what you do is make us feel like we're at home and part of the family. The integration of the team is an amazing feeling and you really feel instantly at home and immersed. We can be ourselves and do amazing things and all stress is taken away.

I feel the term 'cater for all levels' has become a bit cliche but you really do cater for all levels. You can go off and go as hard as you want or take it very easy which makes it a great experience for everyone.

I don't think anyone else offers the same thing you do so keep doing what you are doing and don't change!

Keep doing what you’re doing and don’t change.
