Motorcycle

Winding roads, little traffic and almost no traffic lights, and that in a stunning setting. That is the dream of every rider. You'll find it all in the french Alps. So every year a lot of bikers stay at our place. For those who also want to ride in the french Alps, we have made five routes. Our itineraries are carefully and so varied possible chosen. Mostly they go over small, winding roads to let you enjoy motorcycling, the nature and the beautiful villages en route.

We have an enclosed space where the motors can be parked.



Lakes tour Lac d'Annecy and Lac du Bourget (287 km)
The route is, in addition to appropriate cols, dominated by the two large lakes Lac d'Annecy and Lac du Bourget. The routes run not only along the water, but also offer beautiful views of the lakes and surrounding area.
Already in the beginning of the route you will be driving along the Lake and through the beautiful tourist resort of Annecy. The Lake is 14.5 km long. Should you not be able to resist the temptation and inclination to stay in Annecy or on the Lake, you can shorten the route with 150 km (at km 72 you don't turn right but you cross and you are right away at km 220.3 St. Jorioz 11).
After Annecy you drive trough the Parc National du Massif des Bouges and to the ski resort of Le Semnoz, a beautiful ski resort with surprisingly beautiful driving roads.
A small winding road enter finally into and along Lac du Bourget. This lake is 16 km long and the largest natural lake in France.
