Accomodation

The hotel is a family business and all the siblings work there. Our staff shares the Italian passion for cycling with our guests. There is a special locked with CCTV bicycle storage room, where the bikes are protected against weather and theft. We also have a bike workshop with a bench, bike stand and racks. All meals are included. Everyday we prepare fresh baking at breakfast, a bike packet (strengthened and protein content snack with bananas and sandwiches) for your daily ride and a afternoon buffet snack when you’ll be back at the hotel.

How to get here
The Province of Varese is truly a cycling paradise from mid-March until the end of October and an area steeped in cycling history. The Giro d’Italia almost always visits the region. The one day Autumn classic, Tour of Lombardy, or “the race of the falling leaves”, marks the end of the UCI World Tour calendar. Other cycling events include Tre Valli Varesine and the Coppa Bernocchi in September, one-day road races included in the UCI Europe Tour calendar. In March, the Province of Varese hosts the Trofeo Binda, a one-day road race included in UCI Women’s Road Cycling World Cup calendar. Tours feature undulating and peaceful roads with little traffic among gently rolling hillsides, valleys and mountains, challenging climbs, descents and above all, views across the Prealps, Alps, the Monte Rosa Massif and Italy’s northern lakes. Ten lakes of different sizes surround Varese. You will mainly follow small and scenic roads, with few road signs. Our professional guides are natives of Varese and their experience can help you find the best routes including those hidden lanes and special discoveries you will not find on a map. Our guide does the navigation so you can relax and enjoy the ride. Some stops are planned along the tour. You can visit villas, gardens, museums, churches, castles and other attractions. The AIS European Training Centre (ETC) for Australian athletes is located in Gavirate on the shores of Lake Varese. Orica-GreenEDGE, the professional Australian cycling team, has their secondary training base in Gavirate on the shores of Lake Varese. The team trains on our roads.

The tours are geared toward riders with experience, good fitness and a decent level of skill who should be able to ride 50 miles - 80 km daily with 2,900 feet - 900 metres elevation gain. Some climbs are challenging but not very long, from 1.2 mile - 2 km up to 5.6 miles - 9 km. Our region has a typically hilly and mountainous landscape and therefore the tour profile is characterized by a continuous up and down. However there are shortcuts for getting back to hotel.
