Guestbook comments from the owner

Nous avons passé de très bonne vacances, le chalet a repondu a toutes nos attentes, autant pour la propreté que pour l équipement général qui est très complet, excepté une rallonge electrique qui serait très utile pour les fondues ou les raclettes.. les voisins nous ont depanné donc pas de probleme . Le garage est très pratique pour les skis et le materiel ainsi que le parking .Nous gardons vos coordonnées pour une future location

Highly recommend Chalet Garalys

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here in Sept 2007. We had a fantastic holiday. The chalet truly is a home from home. The views from the chalet are stunning. We were lucky enough to see both sunny panoramas and snow scenes all in one holiday!
We would both highly recommend this chalet to anyone as it is beautifully situated and is a joy to stay in. We spent many a late sunny afternoon on the patio enjoing a glass or two of wine.
The local cuisine is superb and the local people were very friendly.The property is well maintained and was spotlessly clean on our arrival. Both the owners and the agent we had contact with could not have been more helpful.
Les Contamines itself was very pretty with boxes of geraniums everywhere and it made the village look beautiful.
All in all we would both highly recommend this chalet to anyone wanting a very special place to stay with fantastic scenery right on the doorstep.

With GRATITUDE from Moscow, RF

We lived in chalet Garalys for two weeks most of the time challenging a nasty weather untypically rainy for the end of March. And it should be stressed right from the beginning that this grate chalet saved us from no-sunshine-no-ski despair. It is perfectly located for the connoisseurs of complete tranquility yet in a close proximity to all you need après ski. Literally we spotted wild deers with the car lights in front of our garage in 3 minutes after leaving Michelin rated “O” restaurant. Fantastic views indeed from terrace and balconies! Special thanks to Malcolm for a perfectly working chimney. Kitchen is equipped with all you need with good quality combine (gas & induction) top. Our 10 years old boy found it very exciting to explore all the 3 roomy levels of the house 24/7 covered by WI-FI with uninterrupted excess to Net.
Fabienne was very helpful and friendly yet we had very few problems if any. Her recommendation of the ski instructor for our young one was specifically good. Ludovic Callamard is a snow guru and defiantly a person you may trust for your kid’s progress on the slopes!
Les Contamines is very human nice authentic village with affordable legs to Megeve (25 min) and Chamonix (40 min) in case of night life needs.
Special notes for potential guests from Russia: the chalet is well heated; hot water supply is super, good parking for 2 big 4x4.

Les Contamines is a traditional, unspoilt and friendly Savoyarde village set in the Mont Blanc Massif. The village is overlooked by the Dome de Miage, at the end of the Montjoie valley. The chalet is in a sunny position in Le Cugnon, a quiet residential hamlet of Les Contamines-Montjoie.

Les Contamines is just 20 minutes from the A40 motorway, one hour from Geneva or eight hours drive from Calais. It is 5 minutes from St Gervais and within 30 minutes drive of Megeve, Chamonix and the Mont Blanc Tunnel into Italy.

In winter, vehicles are required to carry snow chains in the Haute Savoie.

Other Activities: Adventure park, ice skating, swimming lake with beach, boating lake

Ski: Les Contamines has an excellent snow record from December through to April. Its 120km of superb well-groomed pistes are excellent for all grades. Beginners, intermediates and mixed ability parties are particularly well catered for. There are some exciting steeper slopes for the adventurous, lots of off piste and two boarder parks. One boarder park is a championship course, whilst the second is in the main village and is floodlit (snow permitting).

The ski area is well served by snow making facilities. Most of the instructors are English speaking. Les Contamines is a usual venue for a round of the Boarder Cross Championship.Other winter activities include a large area for ski de fond, ice skating, dog sled and snow shoeing.

The ski bus stop is 350m. Skis can be stored in the chalet garage. Ski lockers are also available at the ski station.
