Chalet Chardons is a simply but comfortably furnished hotel in Tignes for up to 56 people appealing primarily to budget minded skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts looking for a cheap but good value ski or snowboard holiday. We offer excellent food, good company, great access to the lifts and the best possible value for money in the Espace Killy
The chalet is superbly located right in the centre of the up-and-coming resort of Tignes Les Brevieres with no more than a two minute walk to any of the bars or restaurants, the ski-lifts, the nursery slopes or other amenities. In addition the well appointed children's play area and lake are just at the back of the hotel as well as the cross-country ski/walking area. There is a supermarket just opposite the front door as well as free parking at each end of the village, no more than 250 metres away, if the spaces right next to the hotel are full
All bedrooms are en-suite and are comfortable and pleasantly decorated. The beds have duvets and pillows and we supply all bed-linen (sheets, duvet cover and pillow case) in your holiday price. Towels can be supplied for a nominal rental fee if you do not want to bring your own. All rooms have black-out curtains, a wardrobe or chest of drawers and storage space. Most have views over the lake or village. Hot water is plentiful (ten thousand litres are held in tanks..) and we always keep the building nice and warm. Hair dryers are not supplied within the rooms but can be borrowed from the office if needed. All bedrooms and bathrooms are cleaned daily by the chalet staff as well as all communal areas
In the hotel is an alpine style resident's bar with comfortable seating serving a selection of local beers, wines and spirits as well as imported drinks such as Stowford Press and Guinness. There is a dining area with a tea and coffee station and a large balcony overlooking the picturesque Les Brevieres lake. On the ground floor is a ski and boot storage room. The bedrooms are a mix of bunk-bed rooms of varying sizes, all with en-suite bathrooms with WC. There are some double/twin rooms with either an en-suite bathroom or access to their own private facilities next to the rooms.
In spite of being a budget hotel we pride ourselves on the quality of cuisine we offer in Chalet Chardons.
A hearty continental breakfast consists of a choice of cereals, preserves, a selection of french pastries, freshly baked bagette, porridge, yoghurt, fruits and a different hot option daily, plus tea, coffee, hot chocolate and juice.
Afternoon tea is served from 4pm with freshly-baked cake plus beverages.
The evening meal is the central point of the chalet day and consists of a three-course evening meal with complimentary french wine. All our food is home-made by our hand-picked professional head-chef and his kitchen team. We take pride in the quality of our food and plentiful portions as we know that skiing and snowboarding works up a good appetite! We endeavour to never let customers leave the table feeling hungry.
In recognition of our efforts in the skiing and snowboarding budget accommodation market we have been awarded the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for four year's running for 2011, 12, 13 and 2014
The hotel resident's bar is open each day from 4 p.m when the day's skiing or snowboarding is finished. As well as serving the usual selection of drinks, the bar plays music and shows skiing and snowboarding videos plus freeview UK TV for those who just have to keep up to date. Sky Sports is available in the nearby Moose Bar. Vin Chaud or other specialities are often available as well as snacks to tide you over between getting off the slopes and dinner.
There is free WiFi available and the hotel fax and telephone can be used for a small fee.
