Maybe we were lucky, being among the first visitors, but we had a terrific week at Chalet Cairn. The chalet was clean, comfortable and well-located. It was a short, easy, slightly-downhill walk to the centre and lifts, then possible to ski back to the other side of the road at the end of the morning or day. Staff were outstanding hosts - helpful, friendly and skilled cooks. There were lifts heading off in several directions, so Tignes-le-Lac proved a great centre. We had no trouble covering all the terrain from the far side of Val d'Isere to the lower slopes of Tignes in a week. Highly recommended.
