To be honest I don't know where to start. This holiday was such an amazing experience in so many ways. Right, breaking it down-
Initial booking- due to my booking being very last minute they could not have been more helpful. Any question I had they answered quickly and in detail to ensure I had no concerns before arriving.
Chalet- what a home from home. Lovely, clean and cozy en suite room with fine attention to detail with shower gel and
shampoo. Large spacious kitchen dining lounge area and separate tv area.
Staff- Marcus and Gina have established such a great company. The staff they have working for and with them are what made my trip. Jo and Amelia, previous pro triathlete, were truly the host and hostesses with the mostest. They constructed a weekly itinerary which appealed to all requests and requirements of a group of cycling enthusiasts. Not only organising the logistics of the routes and guiding but the transport of non cyclist so they could enjoy the experience and views that we got at the top of each mountain. Amelia and Jo were also such lovely unassuming people that just couldn't have done enough and made you feel so welcome.
Catering- well what can I say, I ate like a queen for the should week. Anthony, michilin trained chef produced some of the tastiest food I've had. Not only was it amazing he also catered for a variety of dietary requirement and made every dish to the highest standard. Dinner was also such s relaxed affair at a long table so you got the chance to sit with different people each night. A lovely atmosphere was created and once again Jo and Amelia controlled the service and ensured the top up of wine, which was quite a regular thing with our group!!
Exercise plan- we cycled a different route every day and given the chance to tackle climbs famous in the Tour de France. What an amazing opportunity and to get advice and assistance on technique to assist you up the lengthy hills. In addition we did a run session structured by Amelia which was focused and specific to individual needs and ability.
Many went swimming in open lake and local 50m pool. Technique once again given from Amelia to get the best out of each session.
I think I have exhausted all compliments I can give to the most memorable holiday I've had since I went travelling round the world
Thank you team tri4thealps.
