Chardon Chalet, TignesCatered chalet
Chalet Chardon is a wonderful place to stay for a ski holiday. It is located in the Bec Rouge area of Tignes le Lac close to all the amenities and only 40m from the nearest lift.
Chardon is not a traditional chalet but is actually a large comfortable apartment with 8 guest bedrooms and 1 staff bedroom. This is a unique apartment which was once a private residence (of Robert Maxwell!) and the bedrooms and living space reflect this. The furnishings and decoration give it a feeling of warmth and luxury.
The spacious and comfortable lounge and the adjoining terrace face south and have spectacular picture postcard views of the lake with the mountains beyond (the panorama above is taken from the terrace).
As you might expect from such a residence, the bedrooms are a range of sizes, styles and facilities; some of the bedrooms are large enough to accommodate an extra bed and we can use bunk beds in some rooms. Using the extra beds and depending on the make up of the group we can fit up to 21 in the chalet. However we will only do this if either one party books the whole chalet or it will not inconvenience the other parties staying in the chalet.
In order to maintain the apartment to a high standard we ask guests not to wear outdoor shoes inside the chalet so please bring slippers or something similar. All of our properties are also strictly No Smoking, we ask guests that smoke to use the balcony or the drive.
At Snowstar Holidays we know that one of the pleasures of being on holiday is leaving the cooking and cleaning to someone else! That is why our chalet staff will be happy to serve you wonderful homecooked meals and help you enjoy your stay; our catering includes:
- Breakfast: A selection of cereals, bread, yoghurt, orange juice, tea and coffee will be served every morning. In addition we serve a cooked option (e.g. french toast, scrambled eggs, omelettes, bacon & egg) and porridge every day except the staff day off and changeover day.
- Afternoon tea: Fresh cakes, bread, jam, tea and coffee will be set out for your return from skiing.
- Dinner: A 3 course dinner is served every evening except Thursday (staff day off). This will be a delicious meal accompanied by a local table wine. Tea and coffee will be served in the lounge after dinner.
Upon arrival we will escort you to our recommended ski shop and ensure you are looked after by the staff there. We will also obtain lift passes for you to save you the bother of queueing and to minimise any delays in getting on the slopes. We also work closely with the ski school and will happily assist in any bookings of lessons or adventure activities. There is a ski and boot room within the chalet as well as parking for 3 cars on a private driveway.
Because our holidays involve independent travel we do not have fixed times for arrival and departure. In fact, so that guests can get the most out of their holidays we are happy to try to accommodate early arrivals and late departures. We hope all guests will accept that there may be an overlap of incoming and outgoing guests on changeover day.
