A cot is available for those with small children.

The village has snow, which lasts from December to April. The ski school has many English speaking instructors for both adults and children and a crèche is also available.

The cable cars operate in the summer, so take the opportunity to ride up to Signal and enjoy the mountains where on a mountain bike or just on a walk.

We love skiing in Les Contamines and normally stay in a catered chalet, but fancied being more independent this time. The location of the chalet couldn't have been better. We were 5 mins from the telecabine by bus, which stopped just yards away. There are plenty of shops and restaurants on your doorstep. We recommend Le Ty Breiz, a local pub/creperie - very cosy. The apartment has all you need including a bedroom, well equipped kitchen and comfy sofa. There is a TV and DVD player with a nice selection of DVDs. The heaters are very efficient and easy to use. Lovely views of the mountains from the large balcony. There is a ski/boot room with a locker for each apartment. Heather was very helpful with our queries, prior to travelling. We will definitely be returning.

Outstanding apartment, great owners!

  • 5 of 5

Heather, the owner, was great with correspondence. Kept us fully informed and everything went smoothly. The apartment has everything you need for a ski holiday with the family. I had the misses and my lad with me and the really comfortable sofa bed meant my 11 year old had his own space. Right in the heart of this lovely village and will definitely be booking again.

We love it here.

  • 5 of 5

We've had another great holiday in this apartment, which is in an ideal location in the centre of the village.It is very clean and well equipped and has a balcony with views of Mont Joly and along the valley; brilliant for watching the sunset or an approaching storm while relaxing with a drink.There is a lift which is a tremendous help on arrival and departure and secure barrier controlled parking.We would certainly be very happy to recommend it.

Very nice apartment, well placed in the middle of the village, walking distance to bakers, supermarket, pubs and restaurants. Also ski bus stops just across the road to ferry you to the ski lifts. Would definitely rent this apartment again, is ideal for a family of four. Really enjoyed the skiing too!

Superb apartment for our family stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment during the Easter long weekend (2 adults + a 2 year old child). We used it as a base to cross country ski from and to watch the French Bialthon/Cross Country Ski Championships that were taking place in Les Contamines.

Everything has been thought of to make life easy in the main builiding; off-road parking, intercom system, lifts to all floors, cellar storage areas (heated for ski kit) and washing facilities for outdoor kit. Nothing has been skimped on and it is all very well maintained and clean.

The apartment itself was really clean, very well appointed, we had everything we needed including comfortable beds, lots of hot water and a nice powerful shower, DVD player, lots of good pans and implements for cooking, etc. The huge balcony is a real luxury and is a nice sun trap making the rooms very light and airy.

The situation in the town itself is ideal; you could not be closer to small supermarkets, cafes, bars and lovely restaurants. We made use of the winter shuttle bus that runs from outside the door to the cross country ski slopes, these seem to run every 5-10 minutes and call at all the local lifts too which was so convenient.

Overall, a great place to stay 10/10 for everything. We will re-visit for sure.

Thank you Heather and William.
