The Chalet is really special, very high spec décor, really good TV/stereo for playing music, great food and really attentive chalet hosts......I will definitely be in touch in six months time to book two more trips for 2012 once I have an idea of numbers and dates.

The stylish and extremely comfortable Chalet Cairn has proved hugely popular with guests over the last several winters. Ski access is simple, with the Aeroski gondola and the Palafour chairlift both within 3 minutes’ walk, and a ski shuttle bus stop just outside for access to the lifts at Val Claret. The resort centre of Tignes le Lac is also only a couple of minutes’ easy walk.

The owner takes great pride in this chalet and is constantly updating it to keep it in a perfect and comfortable condition for our guests. The chalet has been recently updated with new lounge furniture and new bedroom furnishings with a TV/DVD in each bedroom and for winter 2014/15 has installed a unique ‘cosmic sauna’.

The location on Tignes’ lake shore also provides stunning views across the water from the lounge, terrace and hot tub to the spectacular mountain face known as ‘The Fingers’, named after the narrow couloirs and ridges running down it. The face is illuminated at night with a gentle ethereal glow, and on clear moonlit nights, the view

Short Description

At 2100m this is one of Europe's highest resorts. Linked with Val d'Isere, it also makes up part of the Espace Killy offering 300km of runs. Although not the prettiest of resorts, the choice of accomodation is huge and there really is something for everyone here. It is also worth noting that a few new "upper end" chalets have emerged and several of the chalets are either ski in ski out or very close to the slopes. The resort itself is made up of 3 high altitude resorts - Tignes Le Lac (the main part), Tignes Le Lavachet and Tignes Val Claret. Beginners will love the nursery slopes, cruisy blues and green runs. Intermediates and experts can practice their carving on the long wide open pistes and move on to the mogul fields at Toviere and Solaise. Then there is the fabulous off-piste opportunities that the "Espace Killy" has to offer. After all that skiing you will need a drink or to to "wind down". Whilst not as bustling as Val d'Isere, there are still plenty of bars to choose from.
