Chalet Marilyn - Tignes, France
This is a lovely little chalet in the Le Lavachet area of Tignes, just right for a group of friends or family to share. It has a cosy comfortable ambience enhanced by the split-level communal areas, with an open-plan kitchen and dining area overlooking the lounge with its fireplace, flat-screen TV/DVD (don’t forget to bring your favourite DVDs!) and large sun-terrace.
Built into the hillside, the layout features the entrance and small sauna on the first floor, with the living areas below and the cosy bedrooms on the first and second floors.
Starting the ski day is easy – the only decision is which side of the huge ski area to choose, as the Chaudannes and Paquis high-speed 6-man chairlifts are both within 150m of the chalet, and at the end of the day you can ski back to the same point. The choice of après ski is equally accessible, with the numerous bars and restaurants of Le Lavachet all within a short stroll. Approximate Transfer time to resort: Chambery 2 hours, Geneva 2 ¾ hours

Meals - Chalet Marilyn, 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.
