Why Cheralyn & Terry Prideaux chose St. Gervais - Megeve area

We have always loved Les Contamines since our first visit 13 years ago and when we viewed this property it was love at first sight! We fell in love with the views from every room and the lovely feel it has. We renovated it and put our own stamp on it and it is now our home from home.

Only good things to say about this property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with my family just after Christmas 2015 and I’ve only got good things to say about this property. 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.

Lovely cosy apartment

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment! Very cosy and warm this had everything my partner and I were looking for. We have just returned from a weeks ski holiday and it was perfect. The view from the balcony was lovely and the fire was exactly what we needed after a busy day on the slopes. Perfectly located with every little detail thought out and the beds were exceptionally comfortable too making for a wonderful nights sleep. There was an abundance of DVDs available to watch also. All in all a perfect holiday in a stunning home away from home.

Five star luxury apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has all the luxury of a five star hotel. A great deal of thought has gone into making this the most well equipped accommadation with the benefit of fantastic views. We had a marvellous summer break in the mountains with plenty to see and do. I am sure it would be magical in the winter skiing season with added luxury of a wood burning stove it would make for a very great place to spend your skiing holiday.

Lovely, Cosy and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment, it is extremely cosy with the most comfortable beds we have slept in. The views from the balcony are amazing and lovely not to be overlooked. We were very lucky to have very sunny weather and enjoyed a glass of wine or two on the balcony after skiing. We really appreciated the welcome bottle of wine and postcode, it was a lovely touch. You couldn't ask more from an alpine apartment and we will definitely be booking up for next year.

Home From Home

  • 5 of 5

Les Contamines really is a chocolate box village and a great place. The people around the village are so friendly and I have to say the assistants in the Sherpa Supermarket were the most helpful I’ve ever come across even though they spoke little English, definitely recommend getting all your shopping from there.

It was great that everything looked and was as Cheralyn has advertised, the bus stop is a stone’s throw away and the 10min walk into the village is lovely. The apartment is gorgeous and so comfortable, well equipped, clean and modern. We had a few cosy evenings in front of the log burner and the girls fell in love with the mezzanine, telling everyone that listened how they have an indoor tree house.

A big thank you to Cheralyn and if we ever go back to Les Contamines we will definitely be coming back to your apartment. You were so helpful leading up to our holidays, giving us weather reports, information on the resort and just went out of your way to make sure we checked in and settled in easily. Of course we enjoyed the lovely welcome bottle of wine and treats that you left, but most of all seeing the girls so comfortable and happy was priceless

Such a lovely apartment in a very pretty resort, highly recommend staying here, you won’t be disappointed, in fact you won’t want to leave………
