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!

Perfect property

5 of 5
We were delighted with this small but thoughtfully designed and very well equipped apartment. The location in the village made getting around easy, with good choice of eateries in walking distance and short walk to the tourist information where there was a regular courtesy bus to the gondola for skiing. Although we were only there for 3 nights, it would be fine for longer stays. Lucile gave an excellent recommendation for ski hire, Alaska, where our skiing requirements were very well looked after. We would definitely return.

Great little apartment situated in the French Alps

5 of 5
Great apartment! The accommodation is as described and nicely sized for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids. The apartment was clean and well furnished. Great communication with the owner. Superb location offering a wide range of outdoor activities and a good base for travelling to other places of interest.
