Hotel La Chemenaz – Social Facilities
The hotel has a very comfortable lounge bar area, with an open fire, a games area with table tennis, table football, board games and a library, so lots of fun to be had off the slopes, as well as on.
In addition, there is a spa area containing a sauna and jacuzzi if you feel like something a little more relaxing.
The hotel is also only a 15-minute walk from the centre of Les Contamines, and just 150m from the Nordic Park, where you can try biathlon, climb an ice-fall, or enjoy a dog-led or horse-drawn carriage should you wish.
Hotel La Chemenaz – Food
La Trabla restaurant is where the hotel’s renowned food is served, and is set around a large central fireplace. Here they serve a range of local and traditional dishes, including the popular ‘raclette’, a favourite in the Savoie region, as well as fondue and tartiflette.
Catering is on a half-board basis, with a continental breakfast buffet, and tasty 3-course evening meal.
Hotel La Chemenaz – Location & Skiing Access
The hotel is just 1 hour 10 minutes from Geneva airport, and is located a 15 minute walk from the centre of Les Contamines, yet is only 50m from the ski lifts, that give access to the 120km of pistes in the Contamines-Hauteluce ski domain.
There is a free shuttle bus to the village too, if your legs have had enough exercise for one day.
In addition to skiing and snow boarding, here you can also try Nordic skiing, hiking with skis or snowshoes, dog sledding, biathlon, ice-fall climbing and much more.
In terms of après-ski, the village is pretty low-key, with a few bars and restaurants, in fitting with the laid back vibe of this resort. It really is more about the skiing, the great snow conditions and the fantastic scenery.
A Les Contamines-Hauteluce region ski pass is included in your package and will be ready for you on your arrival.
