In the heart of the village and 5 minutes from the slopes, the chalet-hotel Gai Soleil in Les Contamines-Montjoie offers you the seduction setting of an old farmhouse dating from 1823 to the wooden facade patinated by the sun and the snow. The chalet-hotel enjoys an exceptional location in the center of the resort, nestled in greenery and flowers. In the garden you will find freshness, sun and above all calm under the benevolent eye of Mont Blanc and Mont Joly. From the windows of the rooms, the superb view extends over the valley Montjoie, one of the most preserved of the Alps, which we will let you dicover and love
Many activities await you:
In winter you can enjoy skiing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, carriage rides, ice climbing....
In summer why not hiking in front of the Alpine glant, booking excursions to the Nature Reserve, or discover the local culture. You can also enjoy mountain biking, climbing, trout fishing or simply swimming in our beautiful lakes.
We will be pleased to help you discovering all these activities
We visited last week for a ski holiday with kids and friends. The hotel is a perfect place for this purpose. The atmosphere is relaxed, the hosts are extremely sweet and forthcoming for every request you may have and the rooms are very clean and cozy ( even if slightly small). There is a living room/bar to gather for an apero, which is fun after skiing. The best surprise was the kitchen: far better than in any average three-star hotel. The meals were varied, healthy, superb presentation with a real fine taste for every single plate, from starter to desert. The plates were well-though in terms of variation, quantities, ingredients ans taste.This really made the difference!
4 of us spent two nights while ski touring in the area. The host and hostess were warm, welcoming, attentive and professional. The food was axcellent. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the lounge area large and welcoming. We had a wonderful time and Iwould recommend this hotel to anyone..
Our experience of the Gai Soleil was fantastic. The hotel offered to book our ski passes for us, check-in was smooth, the room was lovely-immaculate and a good size, but homely too-and the staff were so, so friendly and helpful.
Due to trail conditions on the TMB we needed to change our plans and we were lucky enought to find a room and amazing help from our hosts who found as a way to get back to Chamonix when yhe local buses weren't running. As a bonus the room is great and dinner was excellent. Hightly recommanded.
We are happy to welcome you in our Chalet-Hotel. If you have any questions or would like to book, contact us or leave us a message.
