"A top chalet in Tignes, with hot tub vistas over the Tignes lake, to the mountains beyond. Perfect for sole-occupancy, especially if your group is looking for a high level of comfort and good access to the slopes."
Chalet Cairn - Tignes, France
The stylish and extremely comfortable Chalet Cairn has proved hugely popular with our guests over the last several winters. Ski access is simple, with the Aeroski gondola and the Palafour chairlift both within 3 minutes’ walk, and a ski shuttle bus stop just outside for access to the lifts at Val Claret. The resort centre of Tignes le Lac is also only a couple of minutes’ easy walk.
The owner takes great pride in this chalet and is constantly updating it to keep it in a perfect and comfortable condition for our guests. The chalet has been recently updated with new lounge furniture and new bedroom furnishings with a TV/DVD in each bedroom and outside there is a unique ‘cosmic sauna’.
The location on Tignes’ lake shore also provides stunning views across the water from the lounge, terrace and hot tub to the spectacular mountain face known as ‘The Fingers’, named after the narrow couloirs and ridges running down it. The face is illuminated at night with a gentle ethereal glow, and on clear moonlit nights, the view is even more sensational.
