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.

Places to holiday in Les Contamines, France

The closest town to a holiday rental in Les Contamines is St Gervais. If you are staying in a self catering Les Contamines chalet for rent for any great length of time, you will get to know St Gervais very well, as it is the commercial centre for the surrounding resorts. However, it is still a fairly quiet town, used by hikers, mountain bikers, mountaineers, rock climbers, white water rafters and paragliders as a base from which to tackle their various challenges in the surrounding peaks.

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. Winters are invariably cold, but if you take a chalet or apartment in Les Contamines (all apartment and flats are fully furnished flats for rent in Les Contamines centre), you will be here to ski, so the cold should not worry you!

                                                              Spacious flat - fantastic location

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              The flat was great - much bigger than flats we have stayed in previously. Having 3 separate bedrooms was a real luxury, and as a party of 5 there were lovely comfy sofas and a table that could seat 7 , and a really well equipped kitchen. Great location only a few minutes walk from the ski lift and we used starshipper to get back to Geneva airport which was efficient and relatively good value. Would recommend Bar Saxo as a great place to go for a drink in the evening, and the bakers and supermarket in Les Hameaux du Lay kept us in provisions for the week. We were fortunate to have great snow and sun so very lucky and Les Contamines is a gem for those who want great skiing but little or no queuing. Bob was very helpful and a mine of local information. Would not hesitate to recommend both the flat and the resort.

                                                              Lovely cosy apartment

                                                              This is a wonderful apartment, full of character. 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.
