I ate at the Gai Soleil while staying at the hotel upon the completion of my hike of the TMB. The restaurant is very conveniently located on the ground floor of the hotel/chalet of the same name, situated just one short block off of the main street of Les Contamines - out of the hustle and bustle of the busy...

Wow, these people were amazing! I have never experienced such wonderful hospitality in my life. We were stranded in the off-season in Les Contamines without any accommodation available due to our late arrival time. One of the owners saw our trouble as we borrowed someone's cell phone to frantically make calls from the grocery store). She invited us to stay... More

We stayed here while on the Tour du Mont Blanc this past August. The rooms are pretty basic but very clean. The hotel is run by a lovely woman who is very welcoming. Dinner was fabulous. Les Contamines is a nice, quaint area.

The room was one of the nicer ones we stayed in during our hike; however, the food was a little disappointing. We were served a steak dinner, but the steak was a little over cooked. The celery soup appetizer was very bland, but the salad (second course) was decent. The best dish of the night was the potato side. Breakfast... More

We stayed at this lovely hotel as part of a tour on TMB and what a perfect example of hospitality and French cuisine is set here. The standards are high and the service from the moment you walk in is welcoming and charming. The restaurant offered a 5 course dining experience of top notch French cuisine. The courses were devine... More
