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.

The closest town to a holiday rental in Les Contamines is St Gervais.

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!

It was refurbished and looked brand new, very clean and the furnishing made it feel warm and welcoming. The Landlord also welcomed us with a bottle of red wine! The beds were excellent and very welcome after a day on the slopes! Fantastic location, near to the centre and to the Ski station. I would recommend to any one this fantastic flat and we will be renting it again at the end of the year.

The bedrooms were perfectly set up, as Chris had taken the time to ask us how we would like them. The chalet itself contained everything we could ever possibly need! The kitchen had enough pots, plates, cutlery etc. Great touch having the dishwasher in there so you don't waste a moment of your holiday. A nice touch having the dressing gowns too. We sat outside many mornings eating our breakfast in them. We all made use of the hot tub, it was even turned into a cold tub for a few days when it was really hot. Travelling with 3 children, having the washing machine and tumble dryer made things much easier for us. The chalet was clean and fresh, it had clear instructions on how to use appliances printed onto them. Chris was the perfect host, nothing was too much trouble for him. He was very knowledgeable of the local area and was able to help us pick the perfect cycling routes. He was able to help us navigate the area whilst many roads were closed (due to cycling) and provided us with a map of the closures to try and help us make the most of our stay. He was very approachable and contact was easily maintained whilst booking through emails. He even encouraged John to go and have a look around the chalet (he was in the area by chance) before we went to holiday there. He explained everything very clearly when we arrived and was most welcoming. I have already told many of my friends about the chalet and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it, especially to families.

Situated within a walking distance to the ski gondola and the shops, the apartment is in a perfect location. The swimming pool was a big bonus especially for our daughter who loves swimming as well as skiing. We have really appreciated the enclosed garage and the heated ski room too. All in all an amazing ski holiday in a perfect location. We loved it so much that we will definitely go back.
