    What a fantastic week of training on the Embrace Alps triathlon trip! I can't wait to return. The cycling is amazing, conquering several mountains during the week, culminating in the long ride out and ascent of Alpe D'Huez. Totally brilliant. We were treated to beautiful lake swimming and scenic runs, fabulous food and great company. The coaches are an inspiring bunch, nothing is too much trouble and they are used to catering to all abilities, so this trip really is for everyone.

    This was a great camp for triathlon training! We had an excellent week of sunshine and perfect temps in an idyllic setting. The workouts were all manageable but challenging! We had just the correct mix of work and leisure. The staff was awesome. I can't say enough good things about the week. I would highly recommend!

    Another great Embrace trip and my first in the Alps. The cycling, especially Alpe d'Huez, was the highlight for me, but the swimming and running sessions were also really enjoyable and in stunning (and quiet) locations. Coaching, food and atmosphere were all great, as always in my experience of Embrace trips.

    A great holiday! This was my second embrace holiday having been to portugal a few years ago. I really enjoyed the relaxed feel of the Chateaux and as always the Embrace team made us all feel really welcome and fed us really well with their excellent home made food. I arrived with a bit of an injury which I was bit worried about but Neil had arranged bike hire for me which I really appreciated and I was very grateful of the flexibility they all showed - helping me with routes but also ensuring that I could be part of the group activities where possible. It was a fab week and I'll definately be back to run up Alpe Duez rather than cycle!!

    I've been to all of the Embrace locations and this one is truly amazing. The cycling was incredible, the coaches were brilliant (as usual) at catering for all abilities and the routes were pretty special- finishing on Alp D'Huez is definitely one of the highs! The swimming and running also didn't disappoint; a vast crystal clear empty (of other people!) lake to swim in and pretty trails and loops to run around. Great coaching tips and support along the way. All the food throughout the week was delicious and never in short supply!

    Looking at all of the reviews they are all 5 stars that tells you all you need to know. Was my first time on the Alps Tri holiday having been to the Portugal camp many times. All the staff were excellent as always. All the participants were top athletes too with most being age groupers so plenty of experience all around. Everyone was super supportive. The cycling is a lot more challenging than Portugal so If this is your weak point then its a tough camp. Lake swimming was excellent and the endurance run was pleasantly flat. Brick running wasn't lol. But what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Lovely countryside and views second to none.

    What a brilliant week! This was my first Embrace trip and was made to feel welcome right from the start. Many thanks to the coaches Neil, Kat and Graeme who worked tirelessly throughout the week and enabled everyone to relax and just focus on running and recovering. The week was structured very well, building up to the final challenge of running up Alpe d'Huez which was pretty epic and will live long in the money. A great value trip as well given the fantastic location and delicious food. Couldn't recommend this highly enough!

    One of the best holidays I've had. The coaching is first class. Whether its training, nutrition, recovery or anything else to do with fitness, there really isn't much the coaches can't advise you on. My endless amounts of questions were answered really well and I was given the information and experience I needed to take my training to the next level. The week was structured really well so that I was prepared for the final epic challenge! Additionally, the food that is prepared at the Chateau was awesome. It was all cooked from scratch and I even learnt quite a bit about cooking. Everyone mucked in with the cooking and everyone sat down together for the meal in the evening which helped to create a great family feel. I would highly recommend Embrace to any runners (and even non-runners looking to start) and I look forward to coming back to do another camp.

    This was my 5th embrace holiday but my first outside of Portugal. As expected everything was fantastic - coaching, running locations, food, other runners. All embrace holidays are terrific value for money with superb accomodation and food throughout the week and the Alps was no exception. The sessions in the Alps really focused on preparing you for the big run up Alp d' Huez so expect a lot of hills! You don't really mind though as the locations are stunning and you really do surprise yourself with the types of runs you can achieve. Another terrific week with the Embrace team. No doubt I will be back again!
