Accommodation & Food

We really have something special for our Alps trip this summer. Our luxury alpine chalet is a traditional Savoyarde property and a recipient of the Méribel Tourist Office’s ‘5* Label Meribel’ award. Ideally situated close to the centre of Méribel-Village.  Its impressive south-facing sitting room features a beautifully carved wooden ceiling, huge bay windows with stunning panoramic views across the mountains, and an open log fireplace.

Each of the chalets five ensuite bedrooms are individually furnished in delightful fabrics and furniture and four have balconies overlooking the mountains. All but one of the bedrooms can be made into a double or twin.

The exterior terraces feature a Jacuzzi, outdoor table and chairs, sun-loungers, outdoor heaters, table tennis, air hockey, table football, darts board, exterior music system and a fully stocked bar.

All of this combined with our exceptional chefs Lee & Justyna, makes for an fantastic stay with us in the French Alps.

Etape du Tour

Just Pedal are pleased to be official tour providers for the 2015 Etape du Tour.  A world famous closed road cyclo sportive that follows a different mountain stage of the Tour de France each year one week ahead of the pro-peloton.  We are able to give you the unique opportunity to cycle this iconic event and also watch the pro’s on the same course one week later.  If signing up for our Tour de France cycling week you can either select ‘entry only’ or join us for 3 more days at our Etape du Tour weekender saving £250 on the combined cost.

The Etape du Tour 2015 will take place in the Alps on Sunday 19th July 2015. Replicating stage 19 of the 2015 Tour de France from St Jean de Maurienne to La Toussuire which we attend on the 24th of July. It is a classic Alpine stage with as main feature the climbs of the Col du Chaussy, Col du Mollard and Croix de Fer. Like last year there will be a sting in the tail with the ascent of La Toussuire. At 138km it is an attractive proposition for both the experienced cyclo sportive rider and the Etape du Tour novice.
