Bike hotels in the valley, near Alpe d’Huez

The advantage of staying at the bottom of the Alpe d’Huez climb is that you can end each day on a descent back down to the valley, or a flat ride in along the valley floor. The valley is also where you find most services and facilities. The downside is of course that it’s busier than a remote mountain chalet or even a hotel in Huez village. But everything is relative of course; the valley towns and villages are not exactly cities!

If you’ve enjoyed a tough Alpe d’Huez climb during the day, you can soothe those muscles with a dip in the outdoor pool, the Swedish sauna, or with a massage in the sports room.

It’s one of the top hotels Alpe d’Huez can offer cyclists with extensive facilities including locked bike storage, free laundry for your sportswear, a washing station and workshop for your bike with tools available, personalised tour advice from the owners, and discounted cycle hire thanks to the hotel’s agreement with a specialist bike shop nearby.

  • We love: the extensive range of cycling facilities available.
