Welcome to our website. All the information you might need about our 8-bedroom mountain chalet is available by clicking on the tabs on the left.

The chalet consists of: a 50 sq.m. 2-bedroom apartment on the ground floor (the white-walled parts you seen in the picture below) and a large (200+ sq.m.) 6-bedroom section that we call ‘the chalet’ or ‘main chalet’, since it makes up over 80% of the floorspace of the whole building. There is a door between them, just off the entrance hall, so it is easy to combine them for one group of 16 people, or separate them for two groups of 12 + 4. Only the main chalet has access to the spa rooms (sauna, Jacuzzi, shower etc) and the laundry room.

If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to call us or e-mail us on the contact details also on the left.

Both chalet & apartment are managed locally. Bookings are made on-line via this website.

I’m riding the RideLondon-Surrey 100-mile bike ride again this summer. Last year I completed the distance (for the first time ever) and raised over £1,500 for the Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity.  As I’m riding 300 miles for them again in October, I thought I’d find a different charity to raise funds for in August. I’ve chosen to support

Needless to say, the half-term week was booked in the end, but it’s clear M. Hollande’s reflex socialist taxation tendencies are having a disastrous effect on French tourism. He’ll probably be out of office before the Tresor Public notices the effects, in terms of lower taxation revenue. Meanwhile, Les Contamines and many other resorts (although they are unlikely to admit as much) saw dramatically reduced business this season. Everyone I spoke to shared the same news with me. Our own bookings were down 25% (in terms of the number of weeks booked) but I know others were down up to 40%.

Although I didn’t get a chance to speak to anyone from the SECMH lift company, they must have suffered too as, despite great spring snow conditions, there was hardly anybody skiing. This enabled us to set new (skiing) speed records, which the locals swore they would beat – we’ll have to wait for the summer now to hear (see proof of!) their results.IMG_4919

Megevistes and Chamonistas were there, as usual, on our Contamines/Hauteluce slopes, escaping the moribund snow conditions of their on resorts. One day, when Les Contamines links up with St. Gervais/Combloux/Megeve, they won’t even have to park their cars in the newly tarmac’d parking lot at Les Contamines’ Le Lay lift station.

So, onto summer.
