Renovated traditional wooden mountain chalet set back from main road in Les Contamines-Montjoie. The chalet (with adjoining apartment) is well equipped & has a bright main room with vaulted ceiling, sunny terrace & views of Dome de Miages & Mont Joly. The well insulated chalet is about 10 mins walk from the center of the village, has a ski-bus stop 50m from the front door & is c 2km from the ski lifts & nature park with both summer & winter activities.
In addition to the main chalet which can sleep up to 8 (albeit 1 room with 2 bunk beds is suited to children not adults), there is also a simple small apartment next door which may also be available to rent if you need more space.
Towels and bed linen are not included but can be provided if you prefer for a small fee payable locally to cover laundry costs.
You will receive a key for the garage in which you can store your equipment for example skis, bikes etc. At the back of the garage is a laundry room which you are welcome to use but please leave clean and tidy. We leave basic provisions but ask that guests replace anything that they use up.
Over the past few months we have added: a large games box with assorted games for all ages, a DVD unit with a selection of DVDs, new large chest of drawers for clothes, new additional mattress in bunk bed room, new washing machine, hairdryer, small electric whisk and new kitchen knives. Our current project is installing WiFi which we are working on but we do not have a confirmed date at this point in time.
Servicios y zonas comunes
The access to the property is from the main road with the main door into the chalet being from the rear terrace. The terrace adjoins the terrace for the next door apartment. The parking at the front (suitable for 2-3 cars) may need to be shared with the next door apartment if occupied during your stay.
The driveway and parking are next to the main road which can be noisy during busy periods so take care if you are reversing out onto the main road. However the 'front door' and terrace are at the back of the chalet. Our garden is quite small but the gardens at the back of our chalet and the front of our neighbour are open with no fences and our neighbour is happy to have children playing and building snowmen in his garden!
Atención a los huéspedes
I'll be available to help you throughout your stay either in person or via phone, sms or email - as little or as much as you want or need. Either I or our local contact will greet you when you arrive, give you your keys and show you round the chalet.
Otros aspectos destacables
We will leave a selection of books, games and DVDs for you to use during your stay, but please leave them when you depart. We do not yet have internet but we're working on a solution. In the French way, guests are expected to leave the chalet clean and tidy but if this does not suit you we normally can arrange someone to clean for an additional fee. Please just let me know!
Despite its proximity to the main road, the chalet is well insulated with little noise pollution. Please note that the chalet & terrace is overlooked at the rear by a newly built chalet - however this does not block the views of the Dome de Miage (from the back) or the Mont Joly (from the front), or down across the valley.
Please note that there is an open plan staircase from kitchen side of main room to downstairs bedrooms. This may be unsuitable for the very young or mobility impaired guests.
Please feel at home and enjoy our much loved chalet. We ask that you note the following:
1) No smoking in the chalet;
2) Respect the turnover of key products that we leave for your use and those coming after you; (salt, pepper, vinegar, oil, washing up liquid, toilet paper, kitchen paper .....)
3) Do not wear ski boots in the chalet;
4) Please use and enjoy the games, DVDs and books but leave them behind when you depart;
5) Leave the chalet clean and tidy (for example empty the bins, sweep floor);
6) Remove used bedding from the beds and leave in a pile on the floor with folded up duvet and pillow(s) on the appropriate bed. (Turnaround times are tight especially in winter).
6) Keep the radiators turned down low when you are out;
7) Accidents will happen so it's not serious if you break a bowl or a glass - just let me know so I can replace it.
8) Please respect our personal items (such as ski equipment) stored in the garage and do not borrow them.
9) Have fun!

Hi! My name is Helen and I love traveling - a passion which I share with my husband and now our 3 children. We especially love the mountains both in summer and winter. Coming to the mountains gives us precious time with our children (now aged 7-13) away from our normally hectic lives. Neil (my husband) and I are originally from the UK but have lived for most of our lives in different countries. We speak English, French and German and smatterings of Luxembourgish and Spanish. Our family motto? Laugh, learn, share, smile, forgive.
