Les Contaimes

We did the 18 km from Les Chapieux to les Contamines in just over eight hours, which included the one hour stop for lunch. Our hotel in Les Contamines was the Camille Bonaventure. We had a double room with private bath, with a great view into the mountains and a nice comfortable bed.

Before dinner we walked around and said hi to the owners donkey and watched a little of the Tour De France (choice of viewing it in French, Italian or German). Dinner was excellent, chicken with lemon/olives/saffron, which was served in a sizzling stoneware pot, as well as scalloped potatoes with cheese in another pot. They gave up lumberjack portions. We ate nearly the whole thing. We had the local Gamay, which was light and easy to drink.
