Le Tour de France has a larger global audience than any other annual sporting event on the planet. 3.9 billion people worldwide tune in to watch the oldest and most important road cycling event in history. You can only imagine our excitement when it was announced that Morzine-Avoriaz would host one of the most important stage finishes of the 2016 Tour.
After all, Morzine is the perfect destination for lovers of all things road cycling. Surrounded by several famous Cols and routes, it’s no suprise that our resort has hosted Le Tour before, for a stage finish in Avoriaz and a rest day in 2010. Back then excitement was fever pitch and the whole town decked out in yellow. Le Tour certainly brings a unique atmosphere to Morzine and we’re already planning our special Tour de France break.
The penultimate stage of Le Tour all but decides the race’s overall winner each year. As the cyclists push their way up the Col de Joux Plane on 23rd July, with the Morzine finish line almost in sight, they’ll set the stage for the following day’s finale on the Champs-Elysees in Paris.
White Valley Lodge is currently available for a 7 night stay on an exclusive use, bed and breakfast basis. Priced at £6000, we’ve planned our special Tour de France package so that you arrive on Wednesday 20th July to enjoy the build up to Le Tour, the main event and the fantastic atmosphere in Morzine after Le Tour leaves town. 12 people can enjoy the sumptuous comfort of our beautiful mountain lodge, which is within walking distance of the finish line. Fully catered options are also available, as are flexible arrive and departure dates. Get in touch with us to discuss your specific requirements.
Stay with us and enjoy a really special Tour de France week in Morzine.
