Chalet L'Espagnole in Les Contamines Montjoie French version English version

Summer in Les Contamines

Don't be fooled into thinking that Les Contamines is just about skiing. In the summer months the choice of activities on offer in and around the village is incredible. You can do anything ranging from the more usual pursuits of walking and mountain biking to beach volleyball, archery and donkey trekking. In the breathtaking setting near Notre Dame de la Gorge, the outdoor leisure centre offers among other activities, tennis, golf, boating, fishing, an extensive high wire circuit and lake swimming.

Of course you don't have to venture far up the mountain pathways to come across some of the most amazing scenery in Europe and the walking tour around the Mont Blanc passes directly through the village. More experienced climbers can hire a guide to take them further still to the peaks of the Dômes de Miage and the eternal snows of the Mont Blanc range.

The surrounding region provides many interesting day trips and cultural activities. Chamonix is a mere 25 minutes by car and here you can ride up to the Aiguille du Midi at 3800m or take a train to explore the Mer de Glace. Annecy, one of the most beautiful towns in France, has great shopping and dining out and the villages on the shores of Lake Geneva are simply lovely.
