Why Cheralyn & Terry Prideaux chose Les Contamines-Montjoie

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.

Our stay at Les Contamlne

  • 5 of 5

We were 3generations, my two daughters and one grandchild. The youngsters enjoyed the skiing and I enjoyed the peace and calm of Les Contamines-Montjoie. It was a wonderful experience. Thank you, All the Best, Audrey Baxendale,

Excellent family apartment in Les Contamines

  • 5 of 5

We booked for a week's ski holiday over Easter. The apartment is very comfortable and well equipped. It worked well for a family of 5 with the two double bedrooms and a high quality sofa bed in the sitting room. I would say it would be absolutely perfect for 4 but maybe rather a squeeze for 6. The apartment was very well equipped with everything we could need. Great shower room, plenty of hot water with a large heated towel rail. The is a log burner which we didn't use but would be great for cosy nights by the fire. The large balcony catches the sun with nice Alpine views. Its a bit of a walk up hill into the centre of Les Contamines for shops and restaurants etc - but that was fine for us. We drove each day the short distance to the cable car station where there was always plenty of free parking - but there is also a free shuttle bus that stops near the apartment - so a car would not be essential if you are staying here. Kids enjoyed the large selection of dvds and the fast wifi was also excellent. Was nice to have someone local to check us in and to be available in the event of any issues - had we had any... As well as skiing it would also be a great base for a summer break in the mountains. We would certainly stay again next time we visit Les Contamines which is a lovely small French ski village. Thanks Terry and Cher for a great stay.

Very cosy

We had a lovely time. Bottle of wine and some essentials on arrival were very welcome. The beds were very comfortable and the apartment was nice and cosy. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you!

A real home from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good fortnight in September in les Contamines. The flat was lovely and quiet and most comfortable. It had everything needed to feel like a home from home including a fast wi fi. Its position, just outside the village, was very pleasant, within easy walking distance of restaurants but away from the hustle and bustle and noise. It was comforting to know that the flat had a local English speaking representative who was on call in case of any problems. Our only disappointment was that it didn't quite get cold enough to try the log burning stove!

September is low season and many things are closed, but with careful looking, it was possible to find some lifts open so we had some great high walking.

Would recommend this property highly.

Wonderfully warm and cosy chalet with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 8- 15th Feb 2017 for a family ski trip. Chalet was very warm and cosy, well equipped and so welcoming after a day on the slopes. Les Contamines is picturesque and has everything you need with good little supermarkets. All in all a great week - made even better by a nice bottle of red wine on arrival.

Many thanks ...a really lovely spot!!

Charlie, Michelle and family

Returned for a 2nd year!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I have just returned from a 2 week ski holiday. This is the 2nd year we have stayed at this apartment and once again we had a fantastic stay. The huge array of DVDs kept us entertained and the new addition of having WIFI was a welcomed addition. Thank you for the red wine and chocolates on arrival these were both very much appreciated and enjoyed!
