The charming Hotel Gai Soleil was once a farm in the mountains. Dating from 1829, this farm has been renoved with care and furnished with an aim to preserve all its rustic character and warmth. You can relax in among the various flowering trees and you can enjoy the spectacular view of the Montjoie Valley. The Gai Soleil is exceptionally located in the heart of the resort and five minutes from the ski lifts.

We like this place very much, it is our second time there. Our first stay was during the TMB, we had good rest and excellent food. This year we came for vacation. we had great time. Valery gave us a warm welcome. We enjoyed the nice garden and very nice and comfortable room with great view. Then the excelent dinner and breakfast which were very good.

We found Contamines to be the most charming town along the TMB and this property was the icing on the cake. We opted for half-board and the dinner was among the best of the trip (eclipsed only by Hotel Alpina in Champex, but that's like getting beaten by and NBA all-star in a pick-up game).

We stayed here on the first official night of our self guided TMB tour (hiking from Les Houches to Les Contamines) and it was such a delight after a long day. The hotel has an authentic Alpine rustic vibe but not at the expense of comfort - the beds were comfortable, linens crisp, the bathrooms spotlessly clean. The owners were helpful and welcoming. Our reservation included dinner which was a preset menu, and it may have been the best meal of our trip, beating out other "fancier" restaurants. The hotel is ideally located right off the TMB trail - can't imagine a better place to stay in Les Contamines.

Super comfortable beds, spotlessly clean - and the best dinner ever in a hotel. Simply brilliant service from Valerie, who dried our very wet hiking gear, ensured we got on the correct bus, and topped our wine up numerous times! Perfect stay. Absolutely would return.

What a great location! Just a few minutes walk to the market/restaurants/bars in the city center and to the TMB trail. The bathroom in our room was a little outdated but the room itself was very clean and the view of the mountains from our bedroom was amazing! The community space includes a relaxing courtyard and fresh spring water. The hosts were very helpful and allowed us to keep our luggage there during our 10-day TMB trek free of charge.
