Chalet Neptune was built in 2001 and is situated only 10 minutes walk from the charming and unspoilt centre of Les Contamines. The chalet can be rented during the winter season for skiing and the summer season for hiking/swimming/tennis/relaxing. The chalet has magnificent views of the entire west face of the Mont Blanc Massif. The chalet is 2Km from the Telecabine du Lay. Chalet Neptune is furnished to a very high standard and can comfortably accommodate a maximum of 8 people.

The Skiing: The Les Contamines ski area offers snow-sure pistes from mid December to the end of April and has a ski school with English speaking instructors. Most of the skiing is above 1800m. The ski area has 120km of uncrowded pistes with 31 ski lifts, 44 pistes, including 3 nursery slopes in the village. For snow borders there are two snow parks, one in the village.

Les Contamines has very good off piste for the more adventurous skier. It also has 29 km of cross country skiing and there are eight mountain restaurants. None of the 14 resorts of the Chamonix ski domaine are more than 45 minutes drive away including Les Grands Montets at Argentiere. Local ski guides can take you on a descent of the world famous Vallee Blanche.

The chalet is situated only two km from the main cable car and the local ski bus stops opposite Chalet Neptune.

St. Gervais, which links with Megeve is only 10 minutes drive away giving a further 300km of skiing.

Summer use of the chalet: Chalet Neptune is available for rental during the winter and summer season.

The village: The village has three supermarkets, Spar, Casino and a small Carrefour, many ski hire shops, 13 restaurants, post office, numerous bars, two banks, two cash points and a tourist office where English is spoken. There are also two bread shops. The chalet has internet access and a modern 4HD TV, the most popular UK and French TV channels can be viewed in HD format.

Magnifique chalet

  • 5 of 5

Ce chalet est vraiment très agréable avec des belles vues, chaleureux, clair et propre,il est aussi très bien équipé pour un confort parfait. La cuisine est spacieuse et bénéficie d'un équipement complet pour la préparation des repas. Le salon et la salle à manger sont grands, ainsi que les 4 chambres et les salles de bain, l'espace et la lumière dominent l'intérieur .

L'arrêt des navettes est au bout du chemin et nous conduit au télécabine montjoie en 6 minutes ou au village en 10 minutes.

Les propriétaires sont extrêmement sympathiques et disponibles.

Nous reviendrons sans hésitation.
