- "We stayed at Chalet Chardons for New Year and it was perfect for what we needed. Not many places would take 4 of us in one room over the period without paying ridiculous prices which Chardons certainly did not do - very cheap indeed." - Trip Advisor
- "I stayed as a solo boarder in 1 of their bunk rooms over Easter week. From the moment you step through the door you are made to feel welcome by all the staff and other guests as it seems to be more of a family than business. The rooms are clean and comfortable and had no trouble sleeping even in a shared room" - Trip Advisor
- "I stayed at chalet chardons as a "long-stay guest" this year from the 3rd dec to the 27th march and had the best time of my life. All members of staff were incredibly helpful and friendly as they were all willing to turn their hands to make sure you were having a great time. I was treated as one of the family and ate like a king for the incredibly low price i was paying." - Trip Advisor
Tignes Les Brevieres is the most picturesque of the Tignes villlages. Nestled right at the bottom of the Tignes valley next to the river, it is the lowest and prettiest of all the Tignes resorts. Lovely old style traditional chalets, farmhouses and hotels along with little french bistros, boutique shops and sports shops make up most of this village. With its old charm and beautiful views it can make for a lovely place to stay. With traditional style stone farmhouse and an old charm the Les Brevieres accomodation is less of the modern apartment block style which is seen in the other resorts of Tignes. Chalet holidays, boutique hotels and a few self catering apartments make up the majority of accommodation, and with the old traditional savoyard feel of the village it is charming place to stay.
The Vanoise National park is accessible from Tignes. Go and discover some of the amazing views and the wildlife it is home to.
