A challenging cycling vacation in the French Alps on a road bike with a fan visit to the fantastic stages of the Tour de France.

Tour de France stages live during this trip in:

Stage 11 - Wednesday 13 July 2022: Albertville - Col du Granon

Stage 12 - Thursday, July 14, 2022: Briançon - Alpe d'Huez

 

Villaparcs offers a super location in the French Alps for cycling vacations in the mountains. In the center of Saint Francois Longchamp is the small 4-star vacation park Parc Madeleine. The luxury chalets and apartments are located directly on the Col de Madeleine (hors category climb in e.g. the Tour de France & Paris-Nice) and is also known as the Grand Domaine ski area (165km). During your cycling vacation in the French Alps, all facilities are at your disposal. Enjoy the restaurant and be pampered after a bike ride. The park is about 9 hours drive from Eindhoven.

Saint-François Longchamp is located in the heart of the largest cycling area in the world. Set off for a fantastic adventure in the heart of the Alps. Parc Madeleine is located right on the legendary Col de la Madeleine and is surrounded by as many mythical mountain passes such as the Col du Glandon, Croix de la Fer, Col du Galibier. Only the Col de Madeleine can be climbed on three different routes under completely different conditions. This makes the mountain extra special and challenging for cyclists who like variety. In our cycling vacation routes we also include the lesser known but equally beautiful climbs. Let us surprise you in this beautiful area!
During this tour we will ride at least 2 stages partially, which will be ridden by the pros a few days later. These are the stages with Albertville to the Col du Granon. In this stage is also the beautiful Les Lascets de Montvernier near our location.
The following day there is the queen stage to the famous Alpe-d'Huez and we have a nice stop at Sain-Sorlin on the climb of the Croix de la Fer. After this the peloton starts the final climb to the Alpe d'Huez!
