Location - where is Chalet Les Arolles

The location of Chalet Les Arolles 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 Aeroski 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 Les Arolles description

The wonderful Chalet Les Arolles is an attractively furnished chalet, with wood ceilings and panelling in the traditional Savoyard style, plus stylish high-tech facilities and features. The chalet is spread across two floors, with eight bedrooms sleeping up to fifteen guests and is the perfect home away from home for a ski holiday with family or friends.

Entrance to the chalet is on the ground floor, where you'll find a ski store and heated boot room, perfect for looking after your equipment. There are five bedrooms on this floor, each with twin beds (90cm x 190cm) and its own large flat-screen television (with UK channels). Three of the bathrooms have modern jet showers and the other two bathrooms have fabulous massage baths, perfect for easing away the aches and pains of a long day on the slopes.

Head upstairs to the first floor and you'll find the living room, dining room and kitchen, which are all separate in this chalet, giving you space to choose how social you want to be. The dining room and lounge also have large south-facing balconies, ideal for watching the sun go down over the frozen lake or admiring the floodlit peaks by night. There is a semi-professional kitchen, set completely in stainless steel and fully equipped is fully with oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, kettle, toaster and cafetière, so you'll have all the tools required to whip up a feast for all the family.

If you want somewhere nice and cosy to relax on a cold night, the log-burning stove in the lounge will keep you nice and toasty, as you enjoy a good film using the chalet's free-Wi-Fi on the large flat-screen television (which has UK channels). There are three more bedrooms on the first floor, again each with its own en-suite shower room with modern jet shower, as well as a large flat-screen television with UK channels. One of the bedrooms has a balcony, shared with the living room, with stunning views across the Lac de Tignes.

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 for 90 Eur per week in Tignes Le Lac or a free, uncovered carpark in Tignes Les Boisses (5km away by free skibus).

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Les Arolles

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 Les Arolles'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...

"Lovely combo rustic building & modern amenities"

5/ out of 5
Staying in the recently refurbished Chalet Les Arolles you can really enjoy the best of both worlds. Whilst the rustic exterior and internal décor suggest a chalet from a bygone era, the fantastic en suites and interior facilities, not to mention free wifi (double check this as I'm writing this review in 2013 & chalet reviews are not deleted with age!), are very much up to date. With balconies in the dining room and lounge offering sensational views of the neighbouring pistes, and a selection of lifts (and the resorts centre) within a five minute walk, you have everything you need virtually on your doorstep!
