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 the 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.

Book you stay


Perfect base for ski touring by Kathy

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..


Fantastic by AEP

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.


Very welcoming and flexible staff by YellowFozzie

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.
