Skiing: Les Contamines offers uncrowded, snow-sure pistes from January to mid-April. There is 120km of pistes, 31 ski lifts, 2 snow parks, 3 nursery slopes and fabulous off-piste terrain - it really does cater for all abilities. There is an excellent ski school with Multi-language instructors and a wonderful nursery for 1 to 7 year-olds. Megeve/St Gervais are easily accessed from telecabine just 15 minutes drive from the chalet. If you are feeling in need of even more variety then the challenging runs of Chamonix, Les Houche and Argentiere at are only 40 minutes away.
Summer Activities: Les Contamines is an excellent base for hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, canoeing. It is on the famous GR5 Mont Blanc Circuit walk and in addition there are over 120km of well sign-posted local walks for all abilities. The Pontet leisure park has a small lake with pedaloes, swimming lake and slide, mini-golf, championship tennis courts and coaching, golf driving range, rock-climbing, kids' playground, archery and a fabulous aerial walk/runway through the trees. You can also hire donkeys to carry packs/children on walks - highly recommended by our three children! In high season the telecabines run up to a lovely restaurant adjacent to a lake and 2 kids' parks - a great starting point for walks or bike rides (mountain-bikes and guides can be hired in the village). In the neighbouring town of St Gervais there is a new outdoor and indoor heated swimming pool complex. 25 minutes away in Megeve there is indoor ice skating, swimming pool and slides and a wonderful downhill luge.

Best Ski Holiday Ever
This chalet was perfect for our group of 3 families (6 adults and 5 children aged 7 to 11). Very comfortable, plenty of space, well furnished. The local agent was especially helpful and nothing was too much trouble - she was a credit to the owner. The views from the chalet are fab and it was lovely and quiet at night. Would recommend a car for getting to lifts and into town.
Le chalet en plus d'être bien situé est parfaitement équipé. La décoration est soignée, la vue magnifique, nous avons passé un excellent séjour et profité des nombreuses randonnées à faire au départ et à proximité du chalet. Nous recommandons sans hésitations et sans réserve ce superbe chalet et reviendrons en profiter dès que possible!
