Bikers, Cyclists, Walkers, Mountain Lovers....Welcome to the heart of the French Alps !
Situated between the Vanoise National Park and the Beaufortain, close to Bourg Saint Maurice and the some of the most famous Alpine passes (Madeleine, Petit Saint Bernard, Iseran...) the Gîte de Montvilliers, a former village schoolhouse with incredible views is an ideal base for all forms of mountain activities.
All the Passes are open The Iseran pass (traditionally the last one to open), connects Val d'Isère and the Upper Tarentaise Valley to the remote Upper Maurienne. Bikers can then reach the South taking either the Mont Cenis to Susa or the Galibier to Briançon.
We had a fantastic skiing holiday at Gite de Montvilliers. The snow conditions were great in La Plagne and the weather was kind but what really made it for us was the hospitality extended by Yves and Marie. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts, including different breakfast/meal times and lifts to and from the slopes to suit the various demands of all the resident families. We were fortunate to be in the company of some really nice fellow guests and my boys (12,9 and 6) had a wonderful time. Thank you Yves and Marie !
