In a highly desirable lakeside location, Chalet Chardonnet in Tignes Le Lac is the perfect choice if you're looking for a hassle free holiday in this fabulous snow-sure resort. If you take the main road from Tignes le Lac towards Val Claret, Chalet Chardonnet is located on the left-hand side just after you've passed the Tignespace sports centre. The Tovière gondola is just 200m away from the chalet, or if you fancy heading to Val Claret, whether to start your ski day or explore its bars and shops, the regular ski shuttle bus service stops just outside the chalet.
Chalet Chardonnet is a charming chalet, with masses of space, making it the perfect choice for a large family or group of friends, with eight en-suite bedrooms sleeping up to 15 guests. With its highly desirable lakeside location, the huge floor to ceiling windows offer magical views across the frozen waters, providing the perfect backwhilst enjoying après-ski aperitifs or dinner.
The chalet is spread over three storeys, with the entrance on the ground floor, where there is ample room for storing your skis and a heated boot dryer, so you'll have nice toasty feet each morning before setting off on the slopes.
After entering the chalet, the ground floor opens up into a large open plan living and dining, with a roaring log fire and exquisite views across the lake towards the Grande Motte Glacier. There is ample space for enjoying a sociable meal, or relaxing in front of the large flat screen television (with UK channels) with all your family and friends. Next to the dining room you'll find the semi-professional kitchen, set completely in stainless steel and fully equipped with oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, kettle, toaster and catetière. In addition to this, there is also a downstairs toilet and bedroom with two single beds (90cm x 190cm) with en-suite bathroom.
If you head downstairs to the garden level, there are two comfortable en-suite bedrooms, the larger of the two which has a bath, the other which has a shower. One of the bedrooms has two single beds (90cm x 190cm) and the second has a double bed (140cm x 190cm), plus an additional single bed (90cm x 190cm). In addition to the bedrooms, there's also a separate billiards room and for some added luxury, a Jacuzzi and sauna, perfect for easing away the aches and pains caused by a day of skiing.
Head back upstairs to the first floor and there you will find five bedrooms, three of which have two single beds (90cm x 190cm) and each with its own en-suite shower room. The fourth bedroom has a double bed (140cm x 190cm) and a bathroom and the fifth sleeps one in a double bed (140cm x 190cm) with an en-suite shower room.
If you're travelling by car, there is no parking available at the chalet itself, as due its altitude and heavy annual snowfall, it's not possible to park outdoors, as car's are at high risk of being completely snowed in. However, there is covered parking available for 90 Eur per week in Tignes Le Lac (to book go to https://www.tignes.net/sejour/parkings) or a free, uncovered carpark in Tignes Les Boisses (5km away by free skibus).

Classic Contactless Catering Service
This operator presents the next generation of chalet holidays, for a contactless world. Your chalet will be ready on arrival - beds made, dinner ready and fridges stocked*, wine-cellars replenished, skis and lift passes all booked. But you won't see them. They'll be at the end of the phone, but there will be no contact unless you need it. You and your family will be safe and looked after, as they work in the background, providing everything you need.
Their contactless catering service comes with the choice of two pricing options, a fixed menu with food and drink included in the price, and our à la carte option which allows you greater flexibility to eat and drink whatever you desire and the cost of the food is on supplement, at cost price, and depending on what produce you choose to order.
For those looking for a simple packaged chalet price, they are offering an all-inclusive price, which includes rental of the chalet and your food and drink for the week. Included will be breakfast, afternoon tea, a three-course dinner on 6 out of 7 nights, plus unlimited wine and some beers. They have prepared a delicious menu for the week, with a mix of ready prepared meals from a local delicatessen and easy to cook dishes or sides. All that will be required from you is to pop a few things in the oven and throw together a few ingredients to make a simple salad, or steam a few vegetables as sides to your main meal.
Perhaps you want the freedom to choose your own menus, or perhaps you'd prefer to eat out more than one evening during the week, or you just love to cook yourself and enjoy the holidays where you have time to do this in a relaxed way. That's where our à la carte contactless catering service comes in. As an alternative to the service detailed above, this operator will also offer a lower rate, which does not include the food and drink for the week and we will give you the opportunity to order the food and drink of your choice, at the local hypermarket rates, and bill you for this afterwards. Four days before arrival, you will receive a comprehensive provisions list with everything you could possibly need for your holiday. That might be oven-ready meals, or the ingredients you'll need for Bolognaise, Soufflés or Cheese Fondues. Dry goods, dairy, fresh fruit and veg, fresh meat or fish, beers, wines, champagne, whatever, all bought for you and stocked in advance.
The aim is to provide the safest possible environment for a ski holiday, whilst staying as affordable as possible. The new way to holiday will be by enjoying the facilities, food and beverages but without the staff waiting on you hand and foot. That will keep things safe and affordable. However, for those in search of a little more luxury, this operator is able to provide drivers, chefs, daily cleaning, ski lessons etc, all of which can be discussed at the time of booking or with their concierge service prior to arrival.
Beds made on arrival, with bathrobes and slippers, mid-week and end of stay cleaning, satellite TV and free wifi. Our contactless catering service, where we shop, deliver and stock your kitchen before your arrival and half-way through your stay.*
*The backstage team's work of organising and delivering provisions and cleaning the chalet is all included in the marked chalet price. If you choose the “Contactless catering service”, the price also includes all your food and drink for the week. We will provide you with breakfast every day, afternoon tea and snacks, pre-dinner nibbles, plus a three-course dinner on six of the seven nights, which also includes unlimited red and white wine and a few beers.
**Please note that for the à la carte option, all food, drink, ski hire and lift passes come at additional costs and are not included in the chalet price. Provisions will be billed at cost price and can be ordered from the list that will be sent out to you, and ski hire and lift passes can be booked in advance with our preferential rates. For our fixed menu option, the price does not include ski hire and lift passes, but it does include breakfast and afternoon tea for 7 days, plus a 3-course dinner with beer and wine for 6 days.
Important Covid-19 refund promise
It’s an exceptional year which requires exceptional booking conditions. This operator will allow free cancellation up until a week prior to arrival for their 2020/21 Ski Chalet Holidays. If you have to cancel in the 7 days prior to arrival due to government enforced restrictions to travel or movement (a travel ban between your place of residence and destination; self-isolation rulings or a lockdown in your place of residence or resort closure) they will allow you to defer the booking, at the same price, to the next year, or keep all monies paid as a holiday credit on any holiday with this operator for the following 2 years.
A copy of the full terms and conditions are available on request.
Please Note - This operator features two types of Contactless Catering, Classic and Premium. Please see the description above for full details on which of these two options is included with this holiday.
Chalet holidays are not new, but how they will work in Covid-times (and after Brexit) has required new thinking. This winter this operator will launch the next generation of Chalet Holidays for a contactless world. This chalet will be ready on arrival - beds made, dinner ready, fridges stocked, wine-cellars replenished, skis and lift passes all booked. But you won’t any staff. They’ll be at the end of the phone, but there will be no contact. You and your family will be safe and looked after, as they work in the background, providing everything you need.
How it works
Four days before arrival you'll be sent a comprehensive provisions list with everything you would want for your holiday. That might be oven-ready meals or the ingredients you’ll need for Bolognaise, Soufflés or Cheese Fondues. Dry goods, dairy, fresh fruit and veg, fresh meat or fish, beers, wines, whatever, all bought for you and stocked in advance. Beds will be made, bathrobes and slippers in the bathrooms, logs in the fireplace. Midweek, when you are out skiing, the professional concierge team will be back. Towels changed, beds made, chalet fully cleaned, fridge restocked.
Is it expensive?
Of course, there’s a cost for providing the services but it’s built into the price. The provisions collected in advance will be billed transparently at cost price with no mark-up. However, the whole chalet will be better value than you’ll have paid last year. Why? Because you’ll be paying local professional staff to provision, clean and care for your chalet.
What if you want more?
This operator will aim to provide the safest possible environment for a ski holiday, whilst offering affordability that is more important than ever. The new way to holiday will be by enjoying the facilities, food and beverages but without the staff waiting on you hand and foot. That will keep things safe and affordable. However, for those in search of a little more luxury, this operator is able to provide drivers, chefs, daily cleaning, ski lessons etc, all of which can be discussed on booking or with our concierge service prior to arrival.
What measures are in place for protecting us from Covid?
Chalet teams have cleaning and safety protocols to follow and this operator has reinforced the cleaning process with the recommended products to ensure the safety for all. Particular attention is paid to frequent points of contact (door handles, remote controls, light switches…). The chalet is thoroughly aired prior to arrival and staff wear masks and gloves at all time whilst working.
