Guestbook comments from the owner
We were impressed by the standard of upkeep at the block. The corridors

were obviously regularly cleaned and outside the snow was cleared from

walkways and garage accesses and grit put down each time it snowed. Very

efficient!

A professional couple now retired. We visited Les Contamines on a last minute deal. We feel in love with the village and the skiing. Summers are wonderful too with a host of activities. Our family, grand children and friends have all enjoyed many holidays and share our love of the area and the village atmosphere.

Nicola Fair purchased this apartment in 2002

The village is so unspoilt. The block is warm, airy and welcoming! It beat the low ceiling 'head banging' apartments over the road, in Haneau du Lay, hands down.

Underground parking. Far enough out of lthe village to be quiet, with space not buildings arround us! yet near enough for shopping or eating out without taking a car. Choice of 2 main lifts; walk or drive (with free parking!). As our grand son say's its realy close to everything the resort has to offer; energetic or lazy!

Fantastique!

  • 5 of 5
We have just come back from a fantastic stay in this cute apartment (the photos don't do it justice!)! We would recommend this apartment and dealing with Nicola. The apartment was very comfortable, quiet, clean and well equipped. It has a balcony with a lovely mountain view and it is positioned well - near gondolas and a 10-15 minutes walk to the village centre! We always have a car but if you don't it's fine. The only things to mention on the down side were - no TV signal (we love watching the local Haute Savoie channel!) and there was no stand-up shower but we coped! We can't wait to return, in fact I just checked its availability for the February and April school holidays (we work in a school!) and unfortunately it's already booked - no real surprise!

Great place to escape to

  • 5 of 5
The appartment is a great base to explore some of the Mont Blanc region. It is very comfortable and well equiped.

We arrived on foot from Chamonix via the Belleview cable car, Col de Tricot, Chalets de Miage and Mont Truc - a great day trip would be to walk to Chalets de Miage for a picnic. Other day walks include Col de Joly (or even head up to Mont Joly), Col de La Fenetre, Refuge Tre la Tete to view the glaicer and a lovely walk up the old roman road via Notre Dame de la Gorge and Refuge Nant Borrant. There are plenty of other activitives around for those who don't want to walk from climbing to spa treatments in Saint Gervais.

The appartment is ideally located for the lift - but arriving after it shuts for the summer (early September) makes the starts of all walks a steep up!

We will hopefully be back to explore the region futher.

Thanks once again!
