We had a very good week here, the chalet has nice facilities and the location wasn’t bad either in terms of skiing in and out (you’d have to be quite a good skier to make the most of it but we knew that before we booked). To get into town for the restaurants and shops was just a short walk. We enjoyed the foo... + more

I had an excellent holiday at the chalet Arktic. I would rate the chalet a 4.8 out of 5! It was a beautiful chalet, although I would have loved to have a window in the bedroom with some views. The architect has put in small, long windows, which are high up in the bedrooms (which didn’t suit everybody) and the ... + more

Really good chalet. The staff were brilliant. The food was good. The photos on the website don’t actually make it look as good as it is, we were expecting the bedrooms to be dead simple but they’re really nice. The only thing was from the bedding I actually got scabies, which surprised me as it seems to be ... + more

Location - where is Chalet Arktic

Excellent location less than 2 minutes walk (150m) from Chardonnet ski lift and piste

Overview - chalet description - Chalet Arktic description

The Arktic is one of our most popular chalets and has received several press accolades as one of Tignes elite chalets. Its light and modern lounge is designed and furnished in a funky contemporary style, and the view from the huge floor-to-ceiling windows, out over the sun-terrace to the lake and the whole Tignes bowl, are simply sensational.

The Arktic is home to a superb indoor pool and leisure facilities, including a sauna and outdoor hot tub, from where guests can enjoy more stunning views.

The location is ideal, with the Chardonnet lift and piste just 150m away, and the restaurants, shops and bars of Le Lac just another 100m further on. Heading the other way, the main Aeroski gondola connecting to Val d'Isère is only approx. 5-6 minutes walk.

Press Quotes

Tom Chessyre picks the swankiest ski chalets for The Times and wrote that:
“Chalet Arktic brings Sex and the City to the slopes. The interior design is modern, with leather sofas, chrome coffee tables, a “floating fireplace” (it hangs from the ceiling), wood floors, spotlights, and a bright red open-plan kitchen.”

Piste Picnics

Our Chalet Hotels can also prepare a packed lunch for you on request, at a small local charge. For skiers keen to keep their Euro-spending to an absolute minimum, this is the ideal way to keep your costs down!

Afternoon Tea

The traditional 'welcome home' after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except on the staff's one day off per week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready. As an added benefit for guests in our Chalet Hotels, our chefs prepare a selection of cakes for afternoon tea.

Children's High Tea

In Chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 13 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children's tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner.

Children's High Tea in Chalet Hotels

New for 2013/14 Season - Families staying in one of our Chalet Hotels may choose to eat separately (High Tea at 5:30pm) or all dine together at the later adult dinner time if children who have received a child discount pay the meal upgrade charge of £39 at the time of booking only

Dinner in Chalets

A tasty and innovative, freshly cooked dinner will be prepared for you six nights per week by your Chalet Host - or by an experienced and professional chef in our larger chalets - and served with a choice of wines. Our four-course adult-only chalet dinners start with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee with chocolates to round off your evening.

Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service, and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.

Culinary Choice Dinners in Chalet Hotels

A special feature of our Chalet Hotels is a more extensive culinary experience for our guests. With the greater kitchen facilities of a hotel, our professional chefs are able to offer choices of menu at dinner, generally including lighter as well as more hearty options, and always a vegetarian choice for each course. Guests will be asked to choose their evening meals at breakfast for that evening from a varied daily selection.

Our Chalet Hotel adult-only dinners offer 5 courses, starting with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and a cheese selection to round off your meal in style. All this is then followed by coffee with chocolates to complete your evening's repast! Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.

Vegetarian and Special Diets

Vegetarian options are always on our 'Culinary Choice' menu in our Chalet Hotels, and are available in our chalets if you advise us in advance. Other special diets can generally be catered for at a cost of £35 per person per week. Any dietary requirements must be advised to us at the time of booking in order for us to be fully prepared.

We update Chalet Arktic's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

This accommodation only holiday to Chalet Arktic in Tignes, France departs Sunday 16th April 2017, for a 7 night stay on a "catered chalet" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

Espace Killy ski area Fantastic après ski High altitude skiing

Tignes is somewhere you can ski longer, higher and further than most other resorts in the Alps. Owing its snow-reliability to the Grande Motte glacier, the local ski area is joined with Val d’Isere’s to form the mammoth Espace Killy - intermediates will have a whale of a time here. Choose between 5 different villages, whether your priority is convenience, cosiness or cheap accommodation. Tignes also has one of the most famous New Year parties in the Alps.

Tignes ski resort is one half of the stunning Espace Killy, one of the biggest linked ski areas in France. Because of its high-altitude terrain and access to the Grande Motte glacier, the resort is open both earlier and later in the season than many others and often the lifts are running for short periods of summer skiing. Predominantly purpose built, the resort itself is divided into 5 villages, each different in its own way but all well linked by lifts and bus services. The main area, currently being rebra...
With varied pistes at a high altitude, the ski area has impressive powdered terrain for skiers and boarders alike. Beginners can practice on the nursery slopes at Le Lac and Le Lavachet, where you'll find gentle, quiet runs that are accessible via free beginners' lifts. Le Bollin at Val Claret is another conveniently situated green and Grattalu is a lovely wide blue for those wanting to build confidence. Tignes is incredible if you ski at an intermediate level, with miles of powdery blue and red runs includi...
While it's said that those who appreciate Tignes do so for the serious skiing over the après ski, this doesn't do justice to the fact that Tignes' 60+ bars/pubs and 4 night clubs provide some of the best nightlife in the Alps. All villages have their fair share of places to eat and drink, and with a shuttle bus service running 24 hours, you can enjoy your evening without worrying about the journey back. Jam bar is small but with a great atmosphere and Loop bar pretty much offers it all: with live sport, world c...

"Great group trip to Chalet Arktic"

Donya Fitzsimmons, Southampton
5/ out of 5
The Arktic was amazing! Much better than we all expected. The hosts who did the cooking and cleaning were incredible, if it wasn’t for them it wouldn’t have been as good a holiday. It would have been useful to know that the wellness facilities are only open at a certain time, from 5-6 onwards. I wasn’t skiing as I was pregnant and another girl injured herself and it would have been nice for us to enjoy the facilities while everyone else was skiing. When we could use it, the spa was perfect, can’t fault it. The social area was brilliant – the Arktic has a really big, very open plan living-kitchen-dining area which meant we could really get to know the hosts. We got on so well that we ended up asking them to join us for dinner on the last day, so they’d cook a course then pause to eat with us which was really nice. The food was much better than I’ve ever had in a 5* hotel, considering how young they were, they were really good at cooking and put us to shame! They started off with canapés half an hour before dinner, all handmade from scratch rather than just chucked in an oven and a different thing every day. Starters were soups followed by a different main every night: we had duck, beef, pork, fish (and they knew a few people didn’t like fish, so offered chicken as an alternative). Puddings were lovely and there was always more than enough wine for everyone – we never had to ask for more. For the guys who wanted to ski, the location was close enough that they could take a route that finished right behind the chalet, so they only had to walk about 15-25m back to the chalet. It was also a lot closer to the main area than I’d thought. The bedrooms were a bit of a nuisance for all of us. Most were perfect and everyone was happy but there was a double room that shared a bathroom with another bunk room that had no windows or ventilation. It was more of a ‘family room’ arrangement (though it wasn’t described as this) so wasn’t ideal for 2 couples. Also the chalet was really hot and while the rest of us could open our windows, the two in the bunk room couldn’t. In the end we all ended up chipping in 20 euros each for them to have a different room. We were a group of 18 and a lot who stayed with us usually do self-catered ski holidays. They reckoned that staying at the Arktic worked out a lot cheaper and said they’d stay here again.

"Very good staff, food & facilities"

We had a very good week here, the chalet has nice facilities and the location wasn’t bad either in terms of skiing in and out (you’d have to be quite a good skier to make the most of it but we knew that before we booked). To get into town for the restaurants and shops was just a short walk. We enjoyed the food which wasn’t just local French food, but featured a bit of everything. Our chalet staff did a very good job.

"4.8/5!"

Mr Campbell, Edinburgh
4/ out of 5
I had an excellent holiday at the chalet Arktic. I would rate the chalet a 4.8 out of 5! It was a beautiful chalet, although I would have loved to have a window in the bedroom with some views. The architect has put in small, long windows, which are high up in the bedrooms (which didn’t suit everybody) and the effect was great, especially when it snowed (you have to see it to fully understand). The chalet staff were fantastic and the food was excellent. I would say the location is good… Not great, but good. It was a little trek to get to the nearest lifts.

"Better than it looks in the photos"

Nicki, London
4/ out of 5
Really good chalet. The staff were brilliant. The food was good. The photos on the website don’t actually make it look as good as it is, we were expecting the bedrooms to be dead simple but they’re really nice. The only thing was from the bedding I actually got scabies, which surprised me as it seems to be a pretty clean place. My friend sleeping in a different bed didn’t get it, and other people in the chalet didn’t. There were problems with other people who’d been put in the small room. The official description of the room isn’t the greatest. It caused problems for us when we were there as someone had to sleep in the TV room so we couldn’t use it. Otherwise, it was awesome and the spa and everything else was lovely. Location is brilliant, it was a bit of a walk as we went to the main lift rather than the closest one, but it was fine.

"The top chalet on "normal" budgets"

Jimmy, Sno Staff
5/ out of 5
This is one of the nicest chalets that's bookable on the "realistic budget" of a regular skier or snowboarder. We love the incredible views and the hot tub caps it all off. The property gets good feedback for the levels of hosting. The quality of the food and wine and position within Tignes add up to a great package. I like to say to clients that it's worth noting the star ratings are approximations and do differ from supplier to supplier - I don't think for instance that this is in quite the same league as a five star from one of the "expensive" operators, but that's why it’s so much better value than those posher 5 star catered chalets, which are well over £2k per person for a week's holiday. Among the huge selection of "normal priced” ski holidays, this is one of the best catered chalets at the top end of the quality scale. If you've been on a few ski holidays and you fancy treating yourself this winter, without leaping to the prices of the really fancy boutique chalets (that are 3 or 4 times the price), this is a really nice option.
