“Perfect little chalet for a perfect family skiing holiday”
Reviewed April 13, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I went on many an alpine family skiing holiday when I was a child and now I am the one paying for my children to experience the same; except, it was not the same...it was better! To see the delight on the children's faces when they first entered this hand-made chalet, when they discovered their bedrooms up in the roof (away from the parents) and when they woke up to a breakfast table - care of yours truly, after a short walk past the old church to the local boulangerie - with breathtaking views of Mount Joly and the village of Les Contamines, was priceless. It truly was a home away from home and great value as well. The owner of the chalet is very friendly and helpful and sets you up with plenty of information and resources to make your stay as easy as possible. It is a short walk to the two village ski runs (greens - also good for sledging) and the main car park (free) for the lift to the rest of 120km of pistes is about 2 minutes drive away. Great little chalet, perfect for a family of five, we couldn't have been happier!

“Fabulous base for alpine fun!”

Lovely chalet, conveniently placed close to the centre of the village. A great base for hiking, cycling and other activities. The chalet is well equipped with a lovely deck for relaxing in the sun. Highlights of our trip were fabulous hikes from the chalet so we could leave the car behind, cycling along the river to enjoy the full range of activities at the Leisure Park and day trips to Chamonix.

Thank you for your kind review. We also love being in a small, traditional village up there on the knees of Mont Blanc. I hope you return to explore again.

“Absolutely charming chalet with super facilities and host and fabulous views – a must to revisit!”

Just 500 meters and an easy walk from the main street and all facilities the chalet is set up on the hillside with fabulous views from a panoramic window to the south and the mountains and skislopes. The chalet is warm, cosy and well appointed and exhibits a traditional rustic charm, yet has all the modern conveniences. We self catered 4 nights and on the other evenings found the Gai Soliel Hotel, 50 metres down the hill from the chalet, serves a great evening meal (fixed price/menu) and booking is well advised. Our host, Cathy, was there to welcome us and to make sure that we were settled-in well and to answer any of our initial questions. All in a great find and we will definitely want to book again - a great find in the lovely resort of Les Contamines.
