Les Contamines is a traditional French family resort, tucked into a beautiful valley in the shadow of the Mont Blanc range with its all year round snowy peaks. It is also within easy reach of Chamonix (20 mins), Annecy (50 mins) and Geneva (1 hr 10). The village lies on the Mont Blanc walking tour and in summer also offers lake swimming, a tennis centre, high wire circuit and many other activities. In winter there is an extensive ski area extending down into the Hauteluce valley, as well as cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, sledging and husky dog rides. BOTH THE WINTER AND SUMMER SHUTTLE BUSES ARE NOW FREE IN LES CONTAMINES!
Ski: Les Contamines Montjoie has an excellent snow record and uses it to the full with over 40 slopes available between 1000 and 2500m. All levels of skier are catered for starting with the beginners slopes in the village itself up to slopes reaching an altitude of almost 2500m suitable for the most advanced of skiers. In total there are 120km of pistes served by 26 lifts. In addition to these facilities for alpine skiing there is also ample provision for the cross country skier with almost 30km of marked walks available, again suitable for all ages and skill levels.

About Caroline Strappazzon
I met my husband in Les Contamines while doing seasonal work and lived there for 8 years. We're now back in the UK running a French restaurant but return to the Alps whenever we get the chance.
Caroline Strappazzon purchased this chalet in 2005
Why Caroline Strappazzon chose Les Contamines-Montjoie
This was a ruined barn that we inherited from my husband's family who have lived in the hamlet of Le Champelet for many generations. It needed completely rebuilding but has made a lovely family holiday home.
What makes this chalet unique
The chalet has a real convivial feel and we find it the perfect place to welcome friends and family. It is situated in a peaceful hamlet and has some stunning views from the upstairs windows.
