VILLARD-DE-LANS, THE HISTORIC MTB DESTINATION

Easy to get to by train (TGV), car (30 minutes off the motorway at Grenoble), or plane (1 hour from Grenoble and 1h30 from Lyon airport), Villard de Lans is little known outside of France, but an important destination for French mountain bikers.

A village since days gone by, and resort since the early 20th century, Villard de Lans was an early spa town until therapies gave way to tourism. It is constantly evolving, offering visitors an infrastructure adapted to the original mountain activities, as well as the latest emerging trends. In 1987 they hosted the first ever MTB World Championships.

With numerous shops and restaurants open all year round; hotels and apartments for all budgets; a large swimming centre; plus ice rink, bowling, casino and of course chair lifts to get bikers (and walkers) up the mountain; the village has evolved, whilst maintaining its original charm.

The main square, intriguingly called l’Ours (the Bear) is the beating heart of the village. The old maire, sat on his throne outside the Cultural centre overlooks village life.
