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
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.
