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 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.

A special festive menu will also be served on New Year’s Eve, alongside the added bonus that many resorts put on fantastic firework displays. A glass of fizz, whilst watching fireworks over the snow-capped peaks of the Alps.. what better way to bring in the New Year!

Their Quality Wines

They are very proud of their wine selection for their chalets, which combines crisp and fruity whites with medium to full-bodied reds, for a variety of palates. They select their wines in conjunction with their good friends Nicolas and Véronique – the third generation in the Perret family’s fine wine business based in the Savoie. Nicolas is a qualified wine expert, having trained at the prestigious Burgundy Wine University in Beaune. Each season in October, Nicolas & Véronique bring over a new selection for us to sample (someone has to do it!) and together they choose their wines for the coming season, based on their menus and their pure enjoyment factor. Wine is an incredibly subjective and emotive subject, however, the feedback we've received from guests over recent seasons endorses their aims of providing wines to enhance your meal and to suit most tastes. They hope you will enjoy them as much as they do!
