Overview

About the property

5 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, 1 Separate WC, Sleeps 10-11

Chalet Le Bambi is a luxury refurbished chalet completed in Summer 2011. It has 5 spacious bedrooms, a large open-plan living ding area of 50sqm, 3 full size bathrooms and a separate WC. Le Bambi's most exciting feature is its location - 100 meters to the ski lifts and next to an old ski run down to the village enabling you to ski home to the door. Fully refurbished in 2010/11 to the highest standard, Le Bambi has underfloor heating throughout the Chalet and a wood burning stove to ensure cozy evenings in. The views of Mont Joly, Dome de Miage, the village and ski run can be enjoyed from the new floor to ceiling windows. There are double glass doors in the kitchen opening onto a large terrace which can be used for barbeques/outside dining once the weather improves! The chalet is perfect for a large family or two families as it has 3 bedrooms on the top floor and two on the lower floor with the kitchen/living area in between. Safety gates, high chair and cot available.

Newly renovated Ski Chalet: This beautiful chalet, located right by the ski lifts, offers the potential to ski to the door at the end of each day on the slopes. Renovated to the highest standard in 2010/2011 this property is only on the market for a few weeks each year. Located in Les Contamines, a beautiful traditional alpine resort which still retains its village atmosphere, it is just a short drive from the sparking lights of Megeve or the action of Chamonix. Les Contamines is part of the Evasion Ski area - a huge area of approx 445km of pistes. The chalet is a 10 minute walk into the centre of the village and there is a regular free shuttle bus during the winter which stops less than a minutes walk away. The main ski lift is less than a 100meters walk from the front door and it is possible to ski right into the back door of the chalet (off piste route). The chalet has lots of storage for skis and ski equipment and the wood burning stove is perfect to warm hands after a long day on the snow.

Family Friendly Chalet: Chalet Le Bambi is perfect for a family winter ski holiday or a summer time mountain escape. Les Contamines is know as a family friendly resort and caters perfectly for little people in the winter and the summer. The creche is only a 10 minute walk from the chalet and will take children on a weekly basic, half days or full days. The village is perfect for children in the summer with a fantastic park which includes a swimming lake with beach, a natural lake with pedal boats and fishing, tennis courts, crazy golf, trampolines, playground and a great high wire course. There is rock climbing close by, horse riding and biking and the village organises daily activities for children to take part in. The park is only a 15 minute walk from the chalet making it a perfect base.

About Stephen Kelly

We are an family of 5 from Ireland. We love France, skiing and especially Les Contamines. We try to spend as much time as possible in Chalet le Bambi but with young kids at school its difficult. We want other families to experience and enjoy the chalet like we do.

Why Stephen Kelly chose Les Contamines-Montjoie

Chalet le Bambi is perfect for two families to share or one large family. There are three bedrooms on the top floor, open plan living in the middle and two bedrooms on the lower floor. Toilets and showers on all three floors, and all the mod cons for living eating and enjoying your stay

What makes this chalet unique

Location location location !

Chalet le Bambi is situated just a 2 min walk from the Telecabine, and its possible to ski home to the door (piste stops 150meters from the chalet or off piste right to the door). In summer we are surrounded by beautiful views, great hiking from the door and just a 10 min walk from the adventure park/lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you very much for a lovely stay in your gorgeous chalet. It was well located for the morning ski rush with all the children and some of us even managed to ski back! The resort was lovely and quiet whilst still having lots to offer. Eating out at lunch time was a real treat.

We had a fantastic time and really appreciated the extra touches and finishes that you had put in the chalet. The children loved playing outside with the sledges and arguing over the big bunk bed! All the beds were very comfortable and we all slept well!

It was lovely to have such a well equipped kitchen and everything about the chalet was to a very high standard.

We are really looking forward to our holiday next year!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Location- perfect. Close to lifts.

Accommodation- Luxurious

Village- I love les Contamines. If I could live there I would.

Its the second time we've rented this property as a big family group, and the forth time, we've all been together for a week of skiing in les Contamines. And whats more - we are renting it again next year- booked already.

Active holiday in a traditional village. Highlight of the year for the family members.

Exceptional property located beside the gondola

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property and resort. Probably the best resort we have visited. Incredible, uncluttered skiing area, great places to eat on the mountain, friendly local bars and eateries. The food was top quality throughout and we had blue skis and perfect skiing conditions in the last week of March. In terms of food Les Bouche Croisse on the mountain and T-Brez in the village were particular highlights. The property itself was newly finished, tastefully decorated, spacious and comfortable. It is literally a 30 second walk to the gondola which was nice! It's probably a 5 to 10 minute walk to the centre of the village and the bus we took stopped right outside the door. I can't find any fault with this resort or property. It was worth every penny. Planning to visit again next year availability permitting - hard to imagine going anywhere else after that trip. After 20 years of ski holidays this was probably the most enjoyable I've had. I'd buy this place if I had the cash!!

Top notch Chalet, in a idyllic setting.

  • 5 of 5

I had an enjoyable stay in Chalet and would recommend it to all my friends and family. Its location is perfect, which is right next to the cable car to bring you up the mountain. Accommodation is top notch, we will be back again.

Well equipped chalet in a really convenient spot

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week at Chalet Bambi - there were nine of us in two families. The bathrooms were clean and nicely presented (and there were enough of them!) We loved the kitchen layout, especially the views and the sound of the stream outside. The bedrooms were fine - better perhaps than the photos here show - and the quality of sheets and towels was very good. We had a slight problem with the ground-floor macerator-driven loo, but the owner's representative in resort managed to fix this for us pretty quickly. This was our second visit to Les Contas and, knowing that the resort bus service can be a bit iffy, not having to use public transport because the lift is so close to the chalet was a real boon. And thanks (Steve) for clearing the drive before we arrived!

A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The title says it all, location 10/10, amenities 10/10, description and photos did not do the property justice, absolutely superb. I would highly recommend this property.

Les Contamines-Montjoie is truly a hidden gem. It is a picturesque alpine village which is full of charm and has one of the most enviable snowfall records. The north facing slopes are perfect for all abilities and most importantly they remain quiet and uncrowded throughout the ski season, which lasts up to the end of April. Snow boarders & cross-country skiers are also well catered for. Its fantastic location means that the nearby ski resorts of Megeve, St Gervais & Chamonix are all close by and ski passes are available to cover all these areas. The summer in Les Contamines opens up a whole different range of activities for all the family from walking in the breathtaking mountains to swimming in the new lake surrounded by its man-made beach. At the lake there is tennis and a huge playground with zip-wire course. Les Contamines is also on the Tour de Mont Blanc. Les Contamines is only 15mins from the A40 motorway and is less than an hours drive from Geneva or 8 hours from Calais.
