Chalet Eclipse was built by the owners in 2003 with the vision of creating a traditional chalet with all the luxuries of a contemporary home. Combined with uninterrupted mountain views, and direct access to the children's piste, location and luxury go hand-in-hand. Begin your day waking up to a great view in one of the four bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms with shower/bath. Breakfast/dinner are prepared in the open plan kitchen featuring gaggenau appliances and granite worktop area. Whether your group is large or small, the 3 metre dining table constructed from the ceiling of a 300 year old french monestary will provide sweeping views across the mountains. Then head out for the day to the children's piste directly adjoining the property, or the general ski area five minutes drive away. End your day in the indoor, 6 person hot tub, or with a beer on the wrap around terrace featuring outdoor sofas. Then relax, light a fire, and enjoy a drink in the living room with vaulted ceiling.
Les Contamines is easily accessed by motorway and at approximately 1 hours drive from Geneva airport. Ideally situated within Les Contamines, Chalet Eclipse both fronts the children's ski slope and provides easy access to the centre of town within a five minute walk. The general ski area is a five minute drive from the house. What could be easier? Les Contamines is renowned for its exceptional snow cover between December and late April and uncrowded, well groomed runs to suit all levels as well as your amount of superb accessible off piste. The town provides for a range of restaurants, supermarkets and ski rental locations.
Linens, wireless internet, use of computer (iMac) and cleaning are provided.
The most wonderful chalet, beautifully appointed with lots of space - you can even stand up in every room! Well planned with great plumbing, heating, kitchen and boot room. Without a doubt THE place to stay in Les Contamines.
A beautifully crafted, modern but very characterful chalet. Perfectly located for a quick stroll into the village, for skiing the nursery slope literally outside the garden fence, for a quick 5-minute bus ride to the main telecabin or for just enjoying the stunning scenery all around. Every comfort, mod-con & technology anyone could possibly need or wish for, with plenty of toys and entertainment provided to keep kids of all ages occupied! The chalet is warm, spacious, airy & light, with great socialising areas both indoors and out. You really couldn't wish for any more, so we hope to be back.
We have with friends rented the Chalet twice in February. It’s very well equipped and our boys learned to ski (Ski school) on the children’s slope - just outside. We can especially recommend it for this unique position. “Pied de piste” and the terrace is very well situated (south) for the afternoon sun. Highly recommended and just what you expect and much more- when you rent a high end mountain chalet.
nous étions 2 familles avec 2 enfants chacun et avalons adoré notre séjour dans ce chalet qui était vraiment superbe avec des prestations haut de gamme.
La vue sur la montagne et les pistes vertes pour les petits étaient vraiment top!
nous y reviendrons avec plaisir si l'occasion se présente à nouveau!

Dès notre arrivée, nous avons été conquis par l'agencement, le charme et l'élégance de ce chalet aux prestations de très grandes qualités. Les propriétaires ont réussi à créer une atmosphère cosy et douillet qui permet de très rapidement se sentir à la maison. Les dimensions généreuses de ce chalet sont idéal pour un regroupement familial, nous étions 8 mais 10 personnes + 2 enfants peuvent parfaitement vivement dans ce chalet. Skieurs et non skieurs ont apprécié sont emplacement idéal entre proximité du village et accès par le jardin à la piste des loyers. Sans oublié que le chalet Éclipse est une paradis pour les enfants, notre petit bout de 2 ans et demi à trouvé sur place plus de jouet qu'il n'en avait jamais vu alors que papa à beaucoup apprécié l'installation Apple TV et le sound System qui a renforcé encore plus se sentiment de "comme à la maison".
En bref tout était parfait, ne reviendrons l'année prochaine.
In the heart of Mont-Blanc area, you will find Les Contamines; an authentic village resort of Haute-Savoie. Nestled in a majestic setting, this charming village has become an active tourist attraction through the establishment of a vast and diverse area that offers skiing activities, while conserving its welcoming architecture and atmosphere. Les Contamines has great skiing that gathers for both skiers and borders alike and a relaxing welcoming attiude that you do not find in the bigger more crowded and commercial resorts. There are 120 kms of piste in Les Contamines with 24 lifts to service 46 groomed trails but the secret sauce is really the vast areas of very accesible off-piste skiing /free-ride / randonee for the more adventurous. Les Contamines has a snow record on a par with conditions in the higher altitude resorts due to a favourable weather corridor, in fact you frequently see skiers from nearby legendary resorts Megeve and St Gervais coming to Les Contamines for the better snow cover during a 'dry season'. Les Contamines is also part of Evasion Month Blanc Ski-pass which gives access to 450km of piste in Megeve / St Gervais and you are only half an hour from a ski in famous Chamonix Mont Blanc. During the summer there is also plenty to do with a swimming lake, tennis, hiking etc.
In addition to the standard ski facilities there are also 2 terrain parks (halfpipe, boardercross, bigairs, rails, tables...) and good slopeside facilities. The Nordic ski area in Les Contamines covers 23.5 kilometres of marked and groomed trails, situated in beautiful alpine surroundings. The area opens at the first sign of snow. An initiation area is reserved for beginners. For those looking to improve their skills and have some fun, head to the Nordic Cross Zone or the Biathlon Zone. The nearest airport to Les Contamines is Geneva.
