Les Fraises Sauvages

  • 4 of 5
A very clean and comfortable chalet. Close to the centre but down a side road so quiet. Although next door to the owner's property it's self contained and private. Marvellous view of Mont Joly from the terrace. We went in summer but there would be no access issues in winter. Recommended and would return.

Great chalet. Fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5
This chalet is tucked away in a quiet location but only a few minuets from the slopes. For us this was just what we wanted. it was our first time in Les Contamines and we were not disappointed.

Sarah met us on arrival and showed us around the property. This chalet had a warm, cosy feel to it and within moments of arriving the children decided it was now '...Goldilocks cottage'. It has all the modern conveniences necessary for a relaxing stay and it was obvious great care had been taken by the owners to provide quality appliances and utensils. Everything worked, nothing went wrong and there was plenty of it, from hot water to toilet rolls and bedding to parking space. Cannot fault the accommodation and I'm a moaner by nature (so my kids tell me).

Having stayed at Chamonix and Flaine a couple of times, Les Contamines was a pleasant surprise. Its cheaper for a start, particularly for lift passes and the mountain cafes and restaurants. It is also less busy, particularly at half term when we went. We are intermediate skiers and found the slopes to be ideal, with some challenges as well.

We all had a fantastic break, made so much more enjoyable by booking a well appointed and value for money chalet.

Dumb Luck

  • 5 of 5
On a whim we decided to try to on a ski holiday the Friday before New Year's Eve. Due to a last minute cancellation and superb luck on our part we were able to rent this chalet. We really had no idea what to expect before we got there. We were blown away!
The owner Sarah is very nice and so easy to communicate with. Her husband Bruno built the cabins and they are works of art. The area is great. Views spectacular. The cabins are beautiful, cozy, have everything you need and are CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN. We are lucky enough to travel to lots of rental properties and this one is a winner. I get the sense that they have tons of repeat visitors and for good reason.
Thanks for a great vacation!
