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.

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

Location - where is Chalet Arktic

The location of Chalet Arktic is tough to beat, sat on the Chemin de Crouze, you'll find the Chardonnet lift and piste just 150m away, and the shops, bars and restaurants of Tignes Le Lac just a further 100m. The Toviere gondola is also close by, just a five minute walk from the Chalet and you can hop on the lift which connects Tignes to Val d'Isère. If you're looking to explore Val Claret, there is a bus stop nearby which will whisk you there in no time at all.


Overview - chalet description - Chalet Arktic description

Chalet Arktic is a stylish and modern property which has a lot to offer to make your holiday truly unforgettable. The, sauna and indoor hot-tub which opens out onto the terrace really sets this chalet apart from the crowd. With seven comfortable en-suite bedrooms, sleeping up to fourteen guests, there is enough space for a large group of friends or family to enjoy this wonderful chalet together.

Entrance to the chalet is on the second floor, where you'll find a heated boot room, perfect for making sure you have toasty warm feet before hitting the slopes each day.

Downstairs on the first floor, there is a vast open plan kitchen, living room and dining room, with more than enough space round the table for all the family, as well as ample space on the sofas if you're feeling more in the mood for sitting soft and relaxing in front of the roaring fire. In the living room there's also a large flat screen television (with UK channels).

The kitchen is semi-professional, furnished in stainless steel and is fully equipped with oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, kettle, toaster and cafetière and there is a stylish breakfast bar, perfect both for enjoying a casual breakfast before a big day on the slopes, or enjoying an aperitif before dinner. Inside, just next to the large sun terrace, the hot tub provides an added touch of luxury and is the perfect vantage point for enjoying the stunning views down towards the frozen lake of Tignes and the mountains beyond it.

On the ground floor you'll find the seven bedrooms, each with twin beds (90cm x 190cm) and its own en-suite shower room. The beds in these rooms can be pushed together and made up as a double upon request, each room is spacious and comfortable, with wood panelled walls, typical of the Savoie region.

There is free WI-Fi throughout the chalet, perfect if you need to work whilst away, or stream your favourite film or TV shows whilst relaxing in front of the roaring fire. 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. However, there is covered parking available in Tignes Le Lac or a free, uncovered carpark in Tignes Les Boisses (5km away by free skibus).

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Arktic

Classic Contactless Catering Service

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 us. We'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 we work in the background, providing everything you need.

Our 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, we 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. We 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, we 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.

Our 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, we are able to provide drivers, chefs, daily cleaning, ski lessons etc, all of which can be discussed at the time of booking or with our concierge service prior to arrival.

*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.

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.

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 (pronounce it 'Teens') 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...
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

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

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.
