Finale Ligure MTB Accommodation is simply the best, it is specific to mountain biking with tools, works shops and wash stations. This mountain bike destination on the Italian Riviera is truly unique, home to some of the world's best mountain bike trails with hundreds of kilometres of single track spread across the vast Ligurian Alps, paired with the culture and history of an Italian beach resort and of course the Mediterranean sea. This is as good as any mountain bike accommodation gets. Our Finale Ligure MTB accommodation operates throughout the Spring and Autumn, we close in the height of summer due to the extreme heat, and in the winter as we go skiing!
The classic Italian villa accommodation
Our passionate staff are always on hand in the accommodation, they are on ready to help with any questions you might have. Our guides are the best, and we mean the best. They know this area of the Italian Riviera well, are English or speak English fluently and several have been part of the Finale Ligure riding scene for years. They have hands in the creation of many trails here, including those used by Enduro World Series and know exactly where to take you on these epic MTB holidays in Finale Ligure
After a good 12 months of searching in 2016, we secured one of the best Mountain Bike villas in Finale Ligure located only metres from the beach and the centre of town. The Villa is a grand traditional Italian townhouse with amazing character spread out across 3 levels with a stunning rooftop terrace for eating and socialising, as well as a huge rear courtyard for cleaning, tinkering and fixing up your bikes.
The Villa has 5 bedrooms split over the middle floor. Two bedrooms share an ensuite and some enjoy sea views with balconies, the others look up to the hills behind the villa and provide a glimpse of the epic mountain bike trails hidden in those Ligurian hills. The rooms are a mix of double, twin, triple and one quad. Our Finale Ligure mountain biking accommodation has been renovated in some areas and there is a great mix of old Italian architecture and modern fixtures that provides a great place to stay whilst on this epic mountain bike holiday.
Food is as important to us as the riding, no joke!

A traditional Italian villa located metres from the beach
The Villa is well equipped with an internal bike store and all the tools, stands and bike pumps you would need for general repairs whilst out riding with us. There is also a Karcher jet wash and free Peaty's products for all clients to use at the Villa as Finale Ligure can be quite hard on the bikes and it’s good to keep them in check. It’s a long way back to the beach with a mechanical. Yes beach!
We also have an in-house mechanic on site who has years of experience behind him and also know how to ride a bike. Feel free to ask for any help with repairs and servicing etc. This is not a free service but it's very cheap, we have to feed him sometimes.
The mountain bike trails out in Finale Ligure are amazing in every sense of the word and you really have to ride them for yourself to believe what's out here. They range from smooth, fast and flowy to savagely rocky, tight and technical, there really is something for everyone. It’s no wonder they hold the Enduro World Series in Finale Ligure. Trails such as Rollercoaster provide endless smooth, flowy berms that continue until you can't hold on anymore. Then you have Mini Champery and we all know what that means, full on downhill, steep and technical. You will need to be competent on UK red and black trails for sure. If you are not then we can arrange a coach for you to allow the group to continue riding.
Will you choose the old town or the new town for your accommodation
The town area of Finale Ligure also has a lot to offer, from the old town of Finale Borgo and it’s cobbled streets with hidden shops and restaurants to the bar-lined plaza square area with its lively nightlife and beachfront restaurants. The Seafood and pasta dishes in Finale are amazing with fresh fish being landed daily. San Pedro's is our favourite bar with great service and cool, crisp beers each night. A lot of the accommodation is in the Old town of Finale Boro. The rest os located in the new town Finale Marina.
The Beach is another huge pull to Finale Ligure. With Mediterranean temperatures, when the sun’s out, the beach is full of people basking on it. There is also some great surf in Finale Ligure in the winter months so keep your eyes peeled for that.
