Les Contamines

Overview

The resort of Les Contamines is spread along the valley towards St Gervais and offers great views of Mont Blanc. It is well known for its snow reliability. The traditional unspoilt charms of this mountain village are in total contrast with classy Megeve and sporty Chamonix. You will enjoy its genuine rural feel, weekly street market and alpine architecture.
