"A two minute walk to a drag lift, the Les Arolles is an attractively furnished chalet with spacious rooms. There are excellent multi-jet showers in most of the bedrooms. Unlike many chalets, the living area, dining room and kitchen in the Les Arolles are all separate, giving you space to choose how social you want to be. The chalet is spread across two floors, with rooms 1, 2 and 3 having pretty mountain views. "
Chalet Les Arolles - Tignes, France
This wonderful traditional building was renovated recently especially for guests by its owner, who also built our Chalet Arktic and refurbished the Atlas.
The refurbishments combine the rustic warmth of a traditional Savoyard chalet with wood ceilings and panelling plus stylish high-tech facilities and features. The bedrooms all have modern en suite multi-jet showers or hydro-massage baths, built-in speakers for your own MP3 player, flatscreen TV/DVD and hairdryer and some also have balconies. The dining-room and separate lounge also have large south-facing balconies, ideal for watching the sun go down or admiring the floodlit peaks by night.
Set in the most attractive part of Tignes-le-Lac, the chalet is only two minutes’ walk from the nearest ski-lift, and offers some of the best views in Tignes, across the lake to Val Claret and La Grande Motte glacier and the Tovière ridge, which is beautifully lit at night.
The owner, one of Tignes’ most famous instructors and off-piste guides, lives on the lower ground floor. Approximate Transfer time to resort: Chambery 2 hours, Geneva 2 ¾ hours

Meals - Chalet Les Arolles, Tignes
Food is a feature of any ski holiday and we set very high standards for our cuisine. Our Chalet Hosts will prepare and serve your meals as described here six days per week*.
Start the day with a cooked breakfast including your choice of bacon, eggs, sausages and beans, as well as a continental selection with a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea, coffee and bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, cheese and preserves, which is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself.
A delicious homemade cake accompanied by hot drinks will be laid out for you every day except on the staff’s one day off per week.
Our three-course dinner menus start with an glass of Prosecco followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, accompanied by a choice of complimentary wines, with coffee or tea to follow.
Vegetarian options are available if advised in advance. Other special dietary requirements must also be advised to us at the time of booking in order for your chalet hosts to be fully prepared and incur a charge of £35 per person per week, to cover the cost of additional ingredients. Failing to book special dietary requirements in advance can incur additional supplements in resort.
* On your Host’s one day off each week, they will leave a simpler continental breakfast out for you to help yourselves, there is no afternoon tea that day, and you can dine out locally in the evening. Your Resort Representative will gladly help out with information and make a reservation for you if you wish.
