Our chalet was handmade seven years ago by my craftsman neighbor, whose family has lived in this valley for more than 200 years. We have a colorful organic garden and fruit trees, 2 bedrooms on the ground floor and a mezzanine with an additional two twin beds behind doors that close - So it's like a two bedroom with a third small room. We're situated in a very private sun-filled spot in the village. So you can get up every morning before skiing and walk down to the boulangerie for your fresh, warm baquette like a local and return home to sit in the sun on the terrace in complete privacy. Our back terrace has a barbecue, picnic table and umbrella. It looks out over magnificent views of the close, glaciated mountains and wide sunny valley. There are beds and seating for 6, but 5 would be more comfortable given the chalet is small, there is one shower room and one toilet room, two bedrooms and a mezzanine with two more beds behind a closing door. There's a wood fire in the chalet and firewood is included.

There is a 50 euro additional charge for cleaning. Minimum number of nights allowed is flexible; please ask.

The Rhône-Alpes region

Our village of Les Contamines is literally at the end of the road, but far from sleepy. Where the pavement and car travel ends, a steep rock road built in Roman times to cross the Alpes ascends. Our friendly village (with no through traffic) is a jewel at the heart of the Mont Blanc region. The sensation of a hidden valley results in a very close knit local community. The village has preserved its historic aspect. More than 70% of old farm buildings have been restored in respect of the local Savoy architecture. The name of the village originates from ancient local dialect. The word “Contamines” once meant plowable land on the squires estate. You hear the medieval church's bells only during the day from the tower that once was part of an ancient castle. The famous "extreme sport" capital, Chamonix, is a half hour away. From there you can take a trip up Europe's highest cable car to the summit of the Aiguille du Midi, taking you to the dizzying altitude of 3842 metres where the views are out of this world. Ski conditions and terrain are like that found around Chamonix without the crowds.
