Stage 20 of the Tour de France ends in Morzine after rolling through La Clusaz, St Jean de Sixt, Le Grand Bornand, Chinaillon and the valley. On 23rd July 2016, Tour de France cyclists will sprint through 146km of Alpine terrain in what's sure to be a thrilling day before the finalé in Paris.
The last few days are often the most gripping, with riders pushing their limits for the Yellow Jersey. The steep and varied terrain provides all sorts of opportunities for riders to overtake.
We have a large selection of Morzine luxury chalets and family chalets in walking distance of the route or within easy reach of the action. In La Clusaz, Le Grand Bornand and the surrounding villages, many of our chalets are on the route of the Tour de France itself, or are close enough to provide spectacular views directly from the balcony. You can enjoy watching the action while sipping on a cool drink in a deck chair. Enjoying a stay in the Alps during summer is amazing. The Tour de France race makes the stay unbeatable.
Stage 20 begins in Megeve, where cyclists will warm up on their way to Flumet before climbing the first of four gruelling asscents of the day. Morzine will be buzzing as the cyclists use the final 12km of downhill stretch from the Col de Joux Plane into town, which may well determine the winner of the Tour de France. Spectators will first be treated to a procession of floats, music, and free Tour de France memorabilia, making the experience fun for the whole family. The party will continue beyond the finish line.
