This comfortable and charming chalet is set in one of the world’s best ski resorts, Tignes, in the high altitude ski area of Espace Killy with skiing up to 3450m. Espace Killy comprises Tignes, and it´s famous neighbour, Val d´Isere, both amazing ski areas in their own right and each with a different feel. Something for everyone then!
The chalet is conveniently located in Tignes Les Chartreux which is just between Tignes Le Lac and Tignes Val Claret on the main road towards the funicular which takes skiers up througth the mountain to the Grande Motte glacier.
Thete are a total of 6 bedrooms, all of which are en-suite and can accommodate 12 to 14 guests comfortably. There´s even a lovely, warm and relaxing sauna in which you can soothe your tired body after a hard day on the slopes enjoying the incredible terrain that the high altitude, snow sure Espace Killy area has to offer.
