Petit sejour fort sympathique dans ce chalet si agréable et confortable avec des nuits bien reposantes...
Un seul regret. ne pas avoir prifité pleinement de ce cadre si joli et devoir le quitter si vite...
Merci pour tout
High quality chalets with everything that we needed for our stay. Owners so helpful. Wonderful walking all around. We stayed 4 weeks and will return next year for a longer stay!
Des vacances superbes, chalet agréable et typique.
Le soleil en plus.
We had a wonderful 3 weeks skiing and thoroughly enjoyed staying at Les Fraises Sauvage. The chalet is warm and cozy, well maintained and met all our needs. Sarah and Bruno were very friendly and helpful and did everything to make our stay memorable. We'll be back!
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.
This is our second stay with Sarah and Bruno and it won't be the last. The chalets are very well presented and well equipped.
Les Contanimes itself is an excellent place to explore the alpls with a wide variety of mountain trails for all abilities including younger families and experienced hikers.
We really enjoy staying in this "Chalet" and had a very goof rest.
The place is really very quiet, and the chalet was exactly the same look end field we expected looking at the pictures on the website.
There you feel exactly as if you were in your own house.
We appreciate the decoration which is very typcial for moutain.
We were 5 persons there with enough place to feel confortable.
We recommend it to you and specially Sarah who is also a very nice person always availbale to give you service.
NB sorry for my bad english, try to do my best to share a very good experience !
