A favoured destination for families, cyclists and holidaymakers who prefer soft mobility... Welcome to Les Contamines, a charming and welcoming village resort at the foot of the Mont Blanc massif. Nestled at an altitude of between 1,164 m and 2,500 m, this authentic and preserved resort offers breath-taking landscapes and extraordinary activities, in the heart of the highest nature reserve in France...
Very much appreciated by families ("Famille Plus" label), the resort of Les Contamines-Montjoie appeals to young and grown-ups equally. Its human scale and its location in the heart of the Contamines national nature reserve make it an ideal mountain resort for holidays at the top!
Children will enjoy dog sled rides, snake gliss, ice skating, snowshoeing from 5 years old, horse sleigh rides, tobogganing... these are just a few of the magical moments the whole family will enjoy! For the grown-ups: biathlon, ice climbing on the protected site of Notre-Dame de la Gorge, ski joëring, ruisseling (halfway between walking and ice climbing), e-bike on snow, speed-riding... there is no lack of icy pleasures!
The resort of Les Contamines-Monjoie includes the only protected area of the Mont-Blanc massif since 1979. Between the banks of the Bon-Nant and the peak of the Aiguille de Tré-la-Tête, this nature reserve is renowned for its exceptional flora, with more than 660 plant species. In both summer and winter, the 130 km of paths criss-crossing this protected area invite you to enjoy the magnificent landscapes where more than 270 species have made their home. The history and heritage enthusiasts will also be delighted by this Haute-Savoie destination which has kept its charm of the yesteryear thanks to its baroque churches, its alpine farms and its traditional chalets.
Ideally located at the bottom of the slopes and close to the village, the Chalets Làska Tourist Residence is a perfect reflection of the resort: a clever mix of stone and wood, and the right balance between tradition and modernity.
The spacious and comfortable flats (2 to 4 bedrooms) are all fully equipped with modern facilities and a high standard of living. They have been designed to provide a relaxing and rejuvenating experience in the mountains, specifically thanks to the selected quality of the materials and the top of the range services. The true signature of the MGM group (1000m2 wellness area with heated swimming pool, sauna, hammam, hot tubs, Gym, Montagnes du Monde® Spa, cosy and comfortable communal areas, lounge area with fireplace...).
