The perfect base for cycling the French Alps
Morzine is a paradise for road cyclists and a well known access point for the classic cols and scenic roads of the French Alps.
One of the most legendary Tour de France climbs, the Col de Joux Plane, starts just 250m from The Farmhouse Hotel, and many more key routes are within close range, including the Col De Ramaz – another Tour regular – and the Col de la Joux Verte.
As cycling enthusiasts ourselves, we have ridden these roads and love nothing more than to welcome cyclists, discuss cycling itineraries and pass on our passion for cycling in this incredible region.
We have carefully ensured cyclists have everything they need at the hotel, with secure bike storage, workshop space with tools and a bike wash available to all guests.
There are several great bike shops in Morzine offering an excellent range of road bikes for rental, cycling accessories and bike repairs.
We can also provide early breakfasts and a cyclists’ menu to make sure you are fully fuelled to take on and recover from riding the Cols.
The Farmhouse Hotel is steeped in history, yet beautifully crafted and comfortable in every way. Our 11 charming bedrooms are all unique with original features offering a glimpse of a world gone by.
Comfy beds, luxurious linens, deep baths and huge showers invite you to step back from the world and relax. It’s the perfect place to recharge after a day of climbing the great cols of the region.
“exceptional personal service, outstanding food and supremely comfortable rooms. Probably the best shower I have had anywhere! This is a tiny “boutique” hotel, as different from the tourist chains as one can imagine.”Alpine Cols June 2023
We are geared up for cycling groups, coaching camps and events. Exclusive use of the hotel includes 11 ensuite rooms, providing accommodation for up to 21 cyclists in shared rooms.
Along with our excellent bike facilities, we offer breakfast, afternoon tea and a 4 course evening meal all focused towards a cycling diet.
We also have excellent links with Morzine’s strong cycling community of cycling guides, bike mechanics and shops.
The Portes du Soleil is known as one of the most scenic cycling destinations in the world.
Our famous mountain passes and cols have hosted the Tour de France more than 21 times since 1975, and regularly stage the Critérium du Dauphiné, along with a number of Cyclosportives. Alongside these great Alpine climbs are a number of easier routes, which make the most of our beautiful (flatter) valleys and proximity to Lake Geneva.
For this reason, cyclists of all levels and abilities come to Morzine to enjoy the stunning routes the area is known for.
“My third stay, but the first for seven long years. Has anything changed? No, thank heavens. It’s as blissful as ever, with the old team and the new caring for their guests with absolute perfection.”Marion, UK 2023
