What you will love in the neighborhood
Les Contamines Montjoie is a small mountain resort in the Chamonix area farther up from St Gervais. It is still picturesque with chalets and mountain farms. The village itself is pleasant : market on Tuesday mornings, shops round the square and in the high street. The flat belongs to a large chalet building at the end of the village and has an open, unrestricted view onto the Bonhomme pass in the distance. The south-facing balcony is great for lunch on warm winter days and dinner in summer. Hiking all year round ; tennis courts, adventure playgrounds, poney-riding and horse-riding in summer ; ski-resort, ice-rink and snow-shoeing in winter. The free shuttle to the ski lifts stops just across the bridge at the foot of the chalet. Outdoor and indoor swimming-pools 5 km down at St Gervais and the spa at Le Fayet.
