April sking holiday
We spent an amazing week in Le Petit Chamois. The chalet itself is lovely, with all three rooms very spacious. We had the family room, and all three of our children slept beautifully in the enormous bed under the eaves. The downstairs is very spacious, tastefully decorated and the kitchen very well equipt, opening onto a lovely sunny balcony where the children could play. The chalet is right in the centre of the village, so you can pop out to the shops, restaurants, play ground and ice rink after skiing. We used the local nursery for our two youngest, and it was brilliant - by far the best and friendliest we have experienced in the Alps. The ski bus stops right outside the chalet. The skiing was superb - no lift queues on the mountain, wide open, uncrowed slopes, and gorgeous mountain restaurants, and spectacular views. The children's ski school was great too. The afternoons were spent around the nursery slope in the village or at the stunning nature reserve 5 minutes away - all in all, a wonderfully relaxing week - we will most certainly be back.
Le Petit Chamois was fully booked during the peak ski weeks of February and March 2009. If you are interested in booking our family chalet for 2010 please do not delay. We look forward to be hearing from you.
Very nice place at the heart of Les Contamines.
We enjoyed a great time last week in Les Contamines, with surprisingly decent snow, great weather and almost spring like temperatures. We liked the apartment very much; it is spacious for six people with three bedrooms on two floors (two of which have alcoves which can offer additional sleeping space for kids/teenagers), a nice sitting room with chimney and balcony and two bathrooms. The appartment is very nicely furnished and one can feel that this is a place where the owners like to spend time themselves. We loved the location in the center of the town with shops and restaurants close by and free bus shuttle to the lifts. We never used our car during the whole week.
We surely will come back.
Wonderful news and thank you for placing your next booking. We look forward to have you back.
Awesome Chalet, Great Location
A perfect chalet for two families at any time of year... Early April turned out to be brilliant, with literally nobody on the slopes but several days of great weather and awesome snow, even for one of us who was walking around the slopes with several restaurants within easy reach of the top gondola. At ground level, some good shops and equipment rental places. Plenty of restaurants if you can't be bothered to cook, but self-catering was a pleasure as the chalet has all you need and everything is on your door step, ideal for nipping out to shops which are right beside you - fresh croissants and baguettes always available and at least three supermarkets with anything fresh we needed, plus a travelling butcher where we stocked up on loads of steak, sausages and other goodies. Already looking forward to our next visit...!
We're glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you soon.
My favorite Chalet in Contamines
Being grandparents (and still skiing) to a daughter and son and four grandchildren it was great to be together with the whole family in a spacious and well funtioning chalet during the X'mas holidays. When the little ones were sent to skischool, grandparents went cross contry and our children and in law went skiing in the morning. At lunch we all meet on top of the lift and enjoyed our meal, the sun and the company. And there was time to sneak off down the pist with my favorite daughter. When evening came we all liked to take part in preparing dinner, reading for the little ones in their cosy caves or just relax.
The place has all sorts of activities right outside the door. We were amazed how well the chalet was funtioning - 6 adults and 4 children.
We look forward to do it again - if not for skiing then may be in spring or summer with all the outdoor activies. The place is just beautiful.
