Beautiful chalet with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the chalet while watching Tour de France, a great location and absolutely stunning views. 7 of us stayed there, and it was so spacious we never felt crowded once. 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.

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

Four of us in the 55-60 yrs age group have just finished a great skiing holiday based in this apartment. 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.

Magical, Outstanding, Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

Our curling team needed a place to stay for a curling bonspiel in Les Contamines. We looked at a number of chalets on line. When we looked at the pictures and info on this property we loved the energy. We were elated when we arrived. It was the perfect chalet for our team! The accommodations are 5 star and the owner, Chris, is a perfect host. He was brilliant at providing us with information about the area and had maps for us if we wanted to go to travel around France, Italy or Switzerland and if we required something he did his best to provide us with it. The chalet is centrally located and we could walk to the village and to the curling club. The views of the mountains are outstanding. One night we were in the hot tub and watched the Full Moon rise over the mountains! This property is a gem. We would certainly go back to this property in a heartbeat!! A magical chalet in the mountains.

Best Vacation Rental Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

This is was by far the best rental experience I have had. The property is clean, comfortable, well appointed and has an amazing view. Chris went above and beyond to satisfy everything we possibly need. I would highly recommend staying at this property. I can not say enough good things about the quality of the rental property and its owner!! We spent time outdoors hiking and lots of time eating and drinking. We enjoyed L'op Traken for it's traditional feel and hearty meals. Please don't miss this apartment if you are in Les Contamines!!

great spot for the UTMB (and the family loved it)

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely two week stay here, first the four of us and then two grandparents came to join the fun and we still had room for more. The kids loved the bunkroom and the cows in the field out front. Chris was super helpful and everything was exactly as needed. Great views over the MB massif and Contamines is a lovely village. The apartment is well equiped and looked after and has the added advantage of being on the right side of the village to get the views. We were there for the summer holiday but it's now on our list for the snow too . The apartment and chalet are on the route of the UTMB and TDS races so it makes an excellent base for both. Thanks to Chris for his support during the race.

Well equipped chalet for a family

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this compact but well designed basement apartment on the outskirts of Les Contamines. It is rare to find a one floor apartment with 4 bedrooms. It came in very handy for us as we had grandparents and a dog to stay for a few days. Excellent location for the views and for taking long walks into the hills or a shorter 20 minute walk into the village and the shops. IF there is availability, it is worth splashing the cash and staying in the main house above where the real comforts and views can be had. Chris the host was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed.

Would be good to stay in La Chovettaz again but during the Winter and in the main house.

Les Contamines-Montjoie, an unspoilt gem of a village, nestling under the mountains of the Mont Blanc Massif. From 1200-2500 meters the ski area has a great reputation for being snow sure with quality snow and a variety of pistes for all levels. In summer it is a relaxed location for a holiday base, not far from Chamonix, Megeve, St Gervais and only one hour from Geneva Airport by car. Friendly mountain restaurants and higher refuges complemented by several bars and restaurants in the village.
