Échanges avec les voyageurs
Our main responsibility is to ensure that guests have a terrific time in Contamines,and as part of that, we are happy to engage with potential tenants about any aspects of the holiday, and to respond to feedback and wish list constructively and rapidly.Our multi-lingual and trustworthy caretaker is also based in the village ( Ludo is seventh generation Contaminard) and very happy to offer inside tip to the area.
Our cleaner lives down the road and we normally (with a bit of warning) can help with baby sitter who also lives very locally.
Contamines has its fair share of nice bars and some lovely restaurants,many of them located slopeside.However,this resort is not predominantly an around-the-clock party place so groups looking for that XXL nightlife, might want to consider alternative options.That said, people here are relaxed and liberal, which implied that a lively drinks party on the terrace or inside the chalet is totally acceptable;-) and the last bar open closes at 3am.
We are a French-Norwegian couple, living and working in London, UK for many years. Despite being comfortable in the urban metropole, enjoying the work opportunities,arts scene, and culinary offerings, we are at our most relaxed and happy in small rural settings, far away from the high pulse of the big city or the large tourist resorts. This perhaps explains our taste in houses and locations. Both in Mallorca and in the French alps, outdoor activities are unlimited, and you don't have to be a professional cyclist or a racing skier to enjoy it.These are the perfect places to wake up in the morning, have a leisurely coffee and croissant, for then to decide what to do.We find the small town communities very open and although It certainly does help speaking a bit of the language, villagers definitely make an effort to chat. For us, the real key to enjoyment, is about shaking off the rhythm of your daily life, admire the harmony and values of these small and slow pace communities, and to share those experiences with friends and family. You will hopefully also see from the pictures that our houses are a definite labour of love.We have spent years visiting local flea and arts markets and hope we managed to create a distinctive identify and ämbiente. Do not be shy about giving us feedback though. We are up for it :-)
