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.

Our chalet staff

We are frequently told by guests that ‘The team made our holiday!’ – a compliment we are determined to live up to. Our chalet hosts are all enthusiastic cooks, who look forward to providing you the warm welcome, delicious food and friendly service which lie at the heart of an chalet holiday.

Most are also avid skiers or snowboarders, and love nothing more than to share their knowledge and passion for the slopes with our guests.
