Chalet Colombero - Tignes, France
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”.
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

Meals- Chalet Colombero, Tignes
For six days of the week the staff prepares all your meals.
Breakfast: We pride ourselves on giving you a great breakfast to start your day, with a choice of cereals, fresh fruit and juices, yoghurts, plentiful English tea and good filter coffee, bread freshly baked in our chalets each morning, cold meats, cheeses and preserves, and boiled eggs. This is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself. And to cap it all, we also cook a hot dish of the day for you six days per week, such as sausage and bacon or pancakes with fresh fruit, individually served. On the chalet hosts’ day off, they will prepare a Continental style breakfast for you, which will be left for you to help yourselves, and that evening you have the chance to eat out in one of the local cafés or restaurants – our resort team will be happy to provide some suggestions. In our Chalet Hotels, a full buffet breakfast (including hot option) is also served on the staff’s day off.
Afternoon Tea: 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.
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. Families staying in one of our Chalet Hotels may choose to eat separately (High Tea at 5:30pm) or all dine together at the later adult dinner time if children who have received a child discount pay the meal upgrade charge at the time of booking only.
Dinner: 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.
A special feature of our Chalet Hotels is a more extensive culinary experience for our guests. With the greater kitchen facilities of a hotel, our professional chefs are able to offer choices of menu at dinner, generally including lighter as well as more hearty options, and always a vegetarian choice for each course. Guests will be asked to choose their evening meals at breakfast for that evening from a varied daily selection. Vegetarian options are always on our 'Culinary Choice' menu in our Chalet Hotels, and are available in our chalets if you advise us in advance.
