Make a holiday rental apartment or chalet for rent in Les Contamines, France your home away from home

Les Contamines is part of the Chamonix Mont Blanc ski area, offering some outstanding alpine skiing in the winter. Experienced skiers and adventurous off-piste skiers are especially happy living in Les Contamines holiday rentals, but the charming alpine village has more to offer than simply fearsome peaks. The clear lack of large hotels and weekly market show that Les Contamines has managed to hold off development, and maintain its true place as a quite Alpine village in a hugely enviable position. A chalet for rent in Les Contamines is perfect if you are looking for a traditional skiing holiday.

Things to do on holiday in Les Contamines, France

The vast majority of people first look for a holiday rental in Les Contamines for the excellent off-piste skiing which is available all around the village. Taking to the virgin snow of the surrounding Alpine slopes is risky business, and it is highly recommended that you use one of the many local guides. However, there are also 120km of downhill pistes and 26km of cross-country skiing trails too. The resort is extremely family friendly, and there are some excellent (English speaking) ski schools to be used.

If you would like a break from skiing during your stay in a chalet or apartment in Les Contamines, there are plenty of other options for entertainment. There are mountain footpaths or guided walks available, or you can take the helm of a dog sled or horse sleigh into the hills.

During the summer, the village is still a hive of activity. The Les Contamines Montejoie Nature Reserve is a beautiful setting for hiking and walking, and the melt water lakes are perfect for a refreshing swim after a hard climb into the mountains from your holiday rental in Les Contamines. The leisure centre provides tennis and gym facilities, but it is the swelling rivers which keep the self catering Les Contamines apartment busy from March until October. This is the fishing season, and the lakes and rivers become a delight to fish. Permits to fish are required, but are very reasonably priced.

Weather in Les Contamines, France

Average temperatures during the summer remain around 18°C from June until late August, making it a perfect time to walk or fish the rivers which cut through this breath taking region.

It keeps remarkably warm and the balcony is in full sun at lunch time which made me very happy! The bedrooms are very spacious and beds comfortable. The kitchen is small, but has most things you need for a ski holiday. The log fire is a real treat. It took me 10 mins to walk from the centre of town to the apartment. We will definitely return on our next visit to Les Contamines.

The property was clean, well maintained and very comfortable for just four of us. It would be a bit tight with eight but perfectly possible. Chris, the owner was very helpful and attentive but not at all intrusive. The apartment had a plentiful supply of hot water, good bed linens, excellent lighting throughout, very comfortable beds and was generally well appointed. We enjoyed the fire with a vast supply of dry, seasoned firewood. We followed the excellent directions to the apartment from Geneva airport. We hired a car and used it daily to get from apartment to the car park immediately adjacent to the lift going up to the skiing area. This daily trip was, I would guess, less than a mile and the whole arrangement worked very well, leaving our skis in the car overnight. Minimal effort and hassle to get launched onto the slopes each morning. We had an excellent meal at L' Air du Temps which is walking distance from the apartment. A very comfortable apartment and we would love to return.
