The stylish and extremely comfortable Chalet Cairn has proved hugely popular with UK 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 the 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 for winter 2014 / 15 has installed 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.

Meals in Chalet Cairn, Tignes
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day while on a ski holiday, so we provide both a hot and a continental selection with a wide range of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, tea and coffee, bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, creamy cheeses and preserves, which is usually presented in a buffet style. On our staff's day off, only a continental breakfast will be provided.
Upon your arrival back at your chalet from an exciting day on the slopes, afternoon tea will be laid out for you. Everyday (except on the staff's day off) tea and coffee will be left out along with a freshly baked cake, to keep all of you skiers happy until your dinner is served.
Evening Meal With Unlimited Wine:
Your chalet hosts will prepare you a delicious freshly cooked evening meal on 6 nights of the week. Consisting of an appetiser, main course and desert, dinner is also accompanied by unlimited complementary red, white and rose wine during the dinner service. (please call our sales staff if you have any question regarding your evening meals).
Children's High Tea:
In chalets a healthy high tea will be provided for children under 11 years old, where the menus will be tailored towards children's tastes, pureed food is also available for infants upon request. High teas are served at 17.30 so children do not join the adult only meal. Children (if they have received a child discount) can dine with the adults, if they pay a £39 meal upgrade charge - please call for further details as T&Cs may apply).
Vegetarian meals are available at no extra charge, please inform us at the time of booking so we can prepare for your arrival. Most other special diets can be catered for and in some cases may carry a £35 per person supplement (please call us for more details), if you have any special dietary requirements, please inform us at the time of booking so that the staff can be fully prepared for your stay.
Christmas & New Year:
Our chalets will serve a traditional English Christmas Dinner accompanied with a glass of bubbles! This will include roast turkey with all the trimmings, a delicious Christmas pudding, mince pies, Christmas crackers and of course party hats, to create the perfect Alpine Christmas atmosphere.
On New Year's Eve a special festive menu will be served, alongside the added bonus that most resorts put on a spectacular firework display over the snow capped peaks. Is there a better way to bring in the New Year, than with fireworks and a glass of fizz?
Chalet Staff Day Off:
Please Note - Your chalet staff will have 1 day off during your stay with us, giving you the perfect excuse to try one of the fantastic local restaurants. Your in-resort ski representative can help you book or recommend a restaurant for you. On the morning of your chalet staffs day off, a continental breakfast will be left out for you.

Prices are approximately £12 to £15 per person, we can also offer vegetarian options as well.
