Ski Bus Stop:
Chalet Colombero is a comfortable, individual chalet set in the quiet Chartreux area of Tignes overlooking the lake, yet close to the skiing at the top end of the resort in Val Claret. Keen skiers will be spoilt for choice with the selection of pistes on offer in this huge ski area.
It’s less than one minute’s walk (100m) to the ski bus stop at the end of the road where skiers have the choice of the link to the Val Claret or Tignes-le-Lac lifts each day.
The chalet benefits from an attractive split level lounge and dining area which is generous for this number of guests and which also features a large fireplace and high ceiling, adding to the spacious feel. A balcony off the lounge provides stunning views by day or night across the lake to Tignes-le-Lac village and the spectacular mountain ridges known as the “fingers”.
The three bedrooms are simply furnished with pine panelling and fresh neutral walls creating a cosy and welcoming ambience, and each of the en suite bathrooms was recently renovated to a modern standard.
For après-ski you will be perfectly positioned to either sample the lively bars and clubs at Val Claret all within a short stroll or take one of the regular shuttle buses to enjoy the selection of restaurants and bars in Tignes-le-Lac. Approximate transfer times to resort: Chambéry 2 hours, Geneva 2¾ hours

We set very high standards for our cuisine, and train our staff extensively before the season starts, to ensure that you will thoroughly enjoy every meal on your own holiday with us. We also take our Health and Safety responsibilities extremely seriously, so all our chalet and Chalet Hotel staff during the pre-season training course are trained to the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health’s Level 2 in Food Safety*. For six days of the week our staff prepare all your meals, as described below.
A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so we provide both 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. On our staff’s one day off a week, only the continental breakfast will be provided.
The traditional ‘welcome home’ after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except on the staff’s one day off per week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready. As an added benefit for guests in our Chalet Hotels, our chefs prepare a selection of cakes for afternoon tea.
Children’s High Tea
In Chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 13 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children’s tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner.
Dinner in Chalets
A tasty and innovative, freshly cooked dinner will be prepared for you six nights per week by your Chalet Host – or by an experienced and professional chef in our larger chalets – and served with a choice of wines. Our four-course adult-only chalet dinners start with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee with chocolates to round off your evening. Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service, and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.
2017/2018 Ski Season - canapés and an apéritif will be replaced with a glass of Proseccco.
