We pride ourselves on making sure our guests get the most out of their time with us, but don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what some of our previous guests say:
Massive thank you to Mike, Anna and Cara!! Had a lovely stay at Chalet Ele, the chalet is beautiful and a great to relax and unwind next to the fire after a long day on the mountain. Mike and Anna were extremely accommodating throughout our stay and where able to work around my dietary restrictions with ease! Super helpful and a very friendly team ! Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a laidback easy going holiday 🙂
"Intro to Alpine Cycling Week" late August 2015 - what an awesome week! Can't stop raving about it. Anna, Chris, Mike & Lewis you were all so attentive & supportive. Can't believe how I progressed in the time. Can't wait to come back for more. Marisa 🙂 x
To the 45 Degrees North team,
Thank you for an amazing week. Its been an interesting one to say the least!! I must say though it has been the best week I've had in aaages! Hope the res of the trips go smoothly! Going to miss Morzine. Ben
Had a fabulous week in July, superb support both on the road and at the chalet, great company, seriously good food resulting in a brilliant holiday. Thank you 🙂
Anna, Chris & Mike,
Second visit for us and we thoroughly enjoyed every day. The evening meals were the best reward for a hard days slog. Thanks for the cycling tips and great massages. We will plan another venture with the 45 Degrees North team. Neil & Matthew
Dear Chris, Anna & Mike
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.
Love from Villana xoxoxo
Anna, Chris and Mike

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?

I'm leaving with a new definition of my name & some great memories. The scenery is beautiful, the company excellent and the food first rate. I had a great time and achieved all I wanted and more. Thanks, we'll be back - if you'll have us!
Dear 45 Degrees North Team,
What an awesome week this has been.
Really enjoyed the rides and the company. The location and accommodation was pretty amazing too. You guys did an awesome job. Thank you very much for a lovely week of cycling in the French Alps.
Anna, Chris, Mike Lewis
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.
I will not give up and come back soon stronger, faster & better.
See you soon in London or in France.

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.
Neil & Matthew
Guys, what an amazing holiday. You looked after us so well and the food is second to none. Heartily recommend the 'chicken shop' aka Bec Jaune for any of your guests who are dining out 🙂
We will be back!! Angela & Dave xxx
Anna, Chris, Mike, Lewis

Many thanks, Miranda x
Wow what a great week. Awesome team. Learnt so much and really enjoyed it. Carry on the great work Team 45 Degrees North. Debbie
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 🙂
Thanks Chris, Anna, Mike & Sophie,
We had a lovely stay, the rooms were brilliant. The kids had a blast, especially visiting the chickens! The food was super and the views great. Do come and visit us in Chemex. Love Richard, Vanessa, Ella and Oscar (the loud one)
Dear Mike, Chris, Anna & Sophie,
Thank you for having us to stay. Ben really amazed himself that he can climb mountains, Mum is better at descending now but still not fast. Paul liked the 12% hill. I like the kayaking on Lac Montriond. From Matthew, Ben, Clare and Paul
Being here in the Alps with you guys was truly inspirational and I enjoyed every minute of it. Thanks for all the encouragement up the hills and the extra coaching along the way. The home cooked meals at the end of the day were such a treat. See you next year!
Thank you for an awesome week!!
Thank you all for a great week, with lots of fun
Thanks for a fantastic week!
Chris, Mike, Lewis, Max, Awesome job guys, thank you so much for making it more than "just" a cycling hols! Save me that front seat for next year! Jo x

To the 45 Degrees North squad
Thank you for a great eime in the Alps. Who would've guessed I'd be the one still in one piece at the end of the week!!! This it is safe to say I will hopefully rejoin you out here again but in the meantime I wish you all the best. Ryan G
To the 45 Degrees North Team
Thank you so much for having me. Literally had its ups and downs! #lugecrash Cheers guys, Alex Jones
To Anna, Chris, Mike, Sophie and Matt
Thank you so much for a wonderful week in the Grand Alps. Today's ride over the Joux Plane was without doubt the best day I've ever had on a bike. Sophie big congratulations on the food, we loved it all. I would love to return. Cheers, Jeremy
Thank you all for a wonderful welcome as a "non-rider". We have loved the chalet, the meals, the company and the views! "Mum of the week" Jane x
It's been a tremendous week. Every day an enjoyable challenge and enough differences from last year to keep things interesting. You make a great team - friendly and professional. Many thanks.
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 🙂 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!
Thank you for a incredible week in the Alps - loved the routes (and ride down the hills in the van thank you). Great support, guiding, tips, food and massage. One week I won't forget. Thanks again, Jo
Thank you all for another fabulous week. Great variety of rides, good food and company. Hope to see you for the winter season. Ann
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!
Dear Mike, Chris, Lewis & Anna
Thank you for an awesome week of cycling, walking, swimming & food - & making me feel like I'm in the #TDF2015
Second year was even better than the first - see you in 2016!
Lucy & Mark x
Thank you to Chris, Anna, Mike & Sophie for an amazing week of cycling, loved every minute of every day. The routes were incredible, some of the best cycling I have ever done, so thank you for all your support. Really enjoyed the chalet time, absolute amazing cooking and meals each day, just like home cooking! Can't wait to come back again. TCC Week 2/7 to 9/7 - 2016. Brent
To Chris, Anna, Mike & Sophie,

Holly & Steve x
Yet another excellent week in the Alps thanks to you guys. Despite the absence of Lewis - which got us worried at the start 😉 - 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
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 après 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!
