The chalet is located in absolute prime position- next to the nursery slope (ski in/out), with uninterrupted views of the surrounding mountains, and overlooking the village just below. It also has a considerable terrace and garden. With many children in our own extended French family, we believe our chalet is the perfect destination for a family (families), partly due to location The chalet also has very distinctive activity areas where kids/ teenagers can do their own stuff (attic as well as game room in the basement), and then for the whole family to come together around the large dining table after a relaxing sauna perhaps followed by a film from our decent DVD collection with a nice fire going. We are equipped for toddlers (gates,cot,high chair) and our little street has almost no traffic, making it very safe for children to play outside in the large garden. In terms of decoration, this chalet is our home and we never pass up a chance to visit the countless brocantes around France to add to our selection of furniture. The kitchen is of course also kitted out for proper cooking- after all, we are in France.
With respect to our beloved Contamines, its definitely amongst the prettiest mountain resorts in France, with reliable snow conditions, friendly people, great offpiste terrain, and with a summer season to match for anyone in love with the outdoor. The village is not primarly renown for its big party scene but we have a good selection of decent bars and restaurants, some very good festivals , an icerink open at night, and night skiing at the nursery slope so you will never be bored.
