Dates and prices for summer 2020
Booking for summer 2020 is easy, just fill in the 2020 booking form and we’ll send you a confirmation with a link to pay your deposit securely online.
The availability calendar is just a bit further down this page.
There is an initial deposit to pay and then the balance is due roughly 2 months before your trip.
All prices are in €uros and can be paid securely online using your credit/debit card.
The prices include:
Full MTB guiding and van uplifts
Fully French-legal guiding too!
We run two or three sepearate rides each day so that everyone can hit the trails that best suit them.
Our guides are all fully French-qualified career professionals too.
We will show you the best singletrack you’ll ever ride, in the best style you’ve ever ridden. Taking in Les Arcs, La Plagne, Sainte Foy, the Beaufortain, La Rosiere and the Tarentaise Valley as a whole.
Our free van uplift service runs every day so that we can get further afield in our endless trail explorations.
Food for your MTB holiday
All your meals except lunch and dinner on the Wednesday rest day, which is to say:
Breakfast every morning – fruit, cereal, croissants, toast, boiled eggs, fresh bread, porridge (for those in the know!), cheese, salami and muchos caffeine.
Lunch for each day’s riding (5 days, and it’s 2 lunches per day!)
Lots of tea, cake, coffee, canapés and beer after the ride.
Dinner on 6 evenings, along with all the wine/beer you fancy.
There’s a suitably stickered up beer fridge in the garden and we’ll keep it stocked for you.
You’ll stay at the BikeVillage farmhouse, and have use of our workshop (fire up the compressor!), pump track, Wi-Fi coverage, hammock-time, bike wash, grazing rights to the cherry tree, big smiles etc.
From Geneva airport, are available for €45 per person each way, within our recommended times (arriving by 16.30, departing after 12.30). We can help you arrange transfers outside these times with a transfer company but they tend to cost more.
Repeat guest discount
We love it when BV guests come back year on year, which is lucky because lots of you do!
That’s why we’ve set up a bit of a loyalty scheme – each year you come back you’ll get another €25 off your trip, up to a maximum (and permanent) discount of €50 off each of your visits.
Bookings are already coming in thick and fast for 2020 so apologies if the week you are looking for is already full.
Hopefully you’ll appreciate that it’s our firm ‘don’t just say yes and then muddle through’ stance that stops us taking any more bookings but also keeps the holidays we do provide the very best there is.
Trust us, after the slim years we went through setting up BikeVillage, it feels horrible saying no to people who want to come out with us.
The truth is that Sam loves the actual guiding too much to want to expand and end up a desk-based manager.

Cheaper holidays do exist but better value ones do not!
We only take up to fourteen guests a week and you’ll have more support than most pro riders – no food to worry about, individual technique advice and spot on guiding on the perfect trails for you, optional van/chairlift uplifting and the peace of mind of someone there should your bike break.
Our guides are all ‘career guides‘ who earn their permanent living by being the absolute best at their job that they can be.
That job is making your week’s biking the best you’ve ever had. A full workshop back at base and lots of helping hands will always get you back on the road!
Our food comes from the local market, our wine is excellent and flows very freely and our garden is truly one of the most relaxing places on planet earth, with a kick-arse pump track and a cool wee swimming pool.
We do everything we can to run what we proudly think are the best mountain biking holidays in the world.
Luckily lots of people agree!
So just choose a date and submit the booking form!
