Luxury family chalet in Les Contamines Montjoie

Bedrooms 4
Space 1,614 sq. ft.
Property type chalet
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 2 shower rooms, 3 wc, sleeps 10.

Nestling in the shadow of the Mont Blanc range, this chalet has been newly constructed on the site of an old, ruined alpine farmhouse. It offers modern, spacious accomodation and is furnished to a high standard. Fitted, contemporary kitchen, exposed beams and mezzanine overlooking the living area, are just some of the features of this comfortable chalet. Situated in the authentic and traditional ski resort of Les Contamines Montjoie, it is only 10 minutes walk from the village centre and the ski-bus stop is almost on the doorstep – the ski lifts being just a short drive away. In the summer months, walking, climbing, biking, tennis and lake swimming are just a few of the activities on offer and the famous walking tour around Mont Blanc passes directly through the village. The chalet also has a south-facing garden terrace, for those summer barbeques.

About Caroline Strappazzon

I met my husband in Les Contamines while doing seasonal work and lived there for 8 years. We're now back in the UK running a French restaurant but return to the Alps whenever we get the chance.

Caroline Strappazzon purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Caroline Strappazzon chose Les Contamines-Montjoie

This was a ruined barn that we inherited from my husband's family who have lived in the hamlet of Le Champelet for many generations. It needed completely rebuilding but has made a lovely family holiday home.

What makes this chalet unique

The chalet has a real convivial feel and we find it the perfect place to welcome friends and family. It is situated in a peaceful hamlet and has some stunning views from the upstairs windows.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were a group of 7 and were immediately impressed by the helpful and friendly attitude of Veronique. The chalet itself was spotlessly clean, wonderfully well equipped and well presented. The pictures on the web site show it to be impressive but they do not do justice to the space, the light and the quality of the surroundings. It is a comfortably short walk to restaurants, bars and the boulangerie. This was our 6th visit to Les Contamines and we have stayed in a variety of different accommodation ranging from flats in chalets to complete chalets and hotels. This chalet is, far and away, the best accommodation we have stayed in during our visits to Les Contamines.

Many thanks indeed for a wonderful stay.

Fantastic Chalet, Beautifully presented

  • 5 of 5

This Chalet was perfect. Well organised and has absoloutly everything you could need and more. It was exceptionally clean and maintained to the highest standard. The owner was approachable and helpful. There was information about the resort in the chalet and operating instructions for everything. We went on a skiing holiday and skied every day, we had no reason to eat out as the cooking and dining facilities were excellent in the chalet. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone

Le Chalet était super équipé, très agréable et chaleureux. Bien situé, à proximité de la navette et du centre des Contamines. Accueil très sympathique et efficace de Caroline M.

Pour une première expérience, c'est un coup de Maitre. Tout était parfait y compris le temps : soleil et neige à volonté...

Je recommande ce chalet, cet endroit, cette station. Allez-y !

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Chalet très confortable où rien ne manque!

La répartition des chambres et des salles de bain sur trois niveaux facilite la vie des familles nombreuses !

Un grand sous-sol appréciable.

Situation idéale proche du village et de la navette.

Prêts à y retourner l’an prochain en espérant toutefois des voisins moins bruyants!

Great place, great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was located in a lovely area, right across from the bus stop, which takes you to the city center (it is tiny though). Getting around is very easy if you don't even have a car - we had two but by the second half of the week, we were not really using them. The house was in a very good shape, with big rooms and a very equipped kitchen. Communication was done seamless. A couple of things and suggestions; although there was a baby cot, there was not a baby mattress, so that was a bit difficult to deal with. The pillows are quite old so it was not very comfortable. I would highly recommend buying new ones. The cleaning of the house could have been done better (the floors, fridge tops etc. were still a bit dusty). But overall, if you are all about skiing and relaxing at the chalet after a day full of activity, this is a great choice! Would go back again.

Les Contamines is a traditional French family resort, tucked into a beautiful valley in the shadow of the Mont Blanc range with its all year round snowy peaks. It is also within easy reach of Chamonix (20 mins), Annecy (50 mins) and Geneva (1 hr 10). The village lies on the Mont Blanc walking tour and in summer also offers lake swimming, a tennis centre, high wire circuit and many other activities. In winter there is an extensive ski area extending down into the Hauteluce valley, as well as cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, sledging and husky dog rides. BOTH THE WINTER AND SUMMER SHUTTLE BUSES ARE NOW FREE IN LES CONTAMINES!

Ski: Les Contamines Montjoie has an excellent snow record and uses it to the full with over 40 slopes available between 1000 and 2500m. All levels of skier are catered for starting with the beginners slopes in the village itself up to slopes reaching an altitude of almost 2500m suitable for the most advanced of skiers. In total there are 120km of pistes served by 26 lifts. In addition to these facilities for alpine skiing there is also ample provision for the cross country skier with almost 30km of marked walks available, again suitable for all ages and skill levels. For the true all rounder there is also snowmobiling, snow shoeing, floodlit skiing and ice skating. Add to all this the numerous shops, restaurants and bars to look after your après ski requirements, you have everything you need for a great holiday.
