We were in love with this charming hotel the moment we laid eyes on it! We came off the Tour du Mont Blanc trial very tried and and sweaty and were greeted by Gai Soleil’s extremely friendly staff and delicious, refreshing aperol spritzes in the hotel’s beautiful garden. The rooms were very clean, comfortable, well decorated, with a great updated bathroom. We loved the town of Contaimes as well, one of our favorite stops on the TMB!

David and Valerie are wonderful hosts. Staff is adorable. Typical chalet decor. Cuisine a real treat, compliments to the chef. Perfect location for walking, hiking and relaxing or exploring locally. Don't hesitate to make your overnight stay at Gai Soleil on your tour around the Mt Blanc.

We were mid-way the TMB when we came upon the Gai Soleil for dinner. The hotel is family run and the staff are very friendly. The set dinner at 20 euros was worth it, as every dish was wonderful. Would recommend!

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 shopping and resort street.
The decor is homey and comfortable; service by the hotel's staff was very good and the food was quite delicious. There is an outdoor garden patio for before dinner cold liquid refreshments (and possibly for outdoor dining) but I ate in the indoor dining room with the rest of the hotel guests and diners.
Prices were very reasonable.
A good spot to eat whether or not staying at the hotel.
