About Nicola Fair
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
Why Nicola Fair chose Les Contamines
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.
What makes this apartment unique
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!
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
