This typical high Savoy chalet and comfortable has kept its mountain "soul" from the air. It is located on the mount hillside of the village of Contamines, opposite the Miage Domes. You will spend a quiet stay in a neat environment.

The place is nice, with its flowery terrace outside, its woodwork and mountain photos inside. The caretakers of the Contamines chalet welcome you, summer and winter, for a convivial moment with good food.

Ideally placed on the Tour du Mont Blanc and the GR5, it is a relaxing stage before the steep climb to the Col du Bonhomme. It is also a dream base camp for the ascent of the Domes of Miage and Mont Blanc.

In winter, its proximity to the Contamines ski area will satisfy skiers of all levels, as well as ski enthusiasts.
