Chalet Caribou is conveniently situated in a quiet street, above the lake, and is just 50m from our Snow Club. It shares a building with Chalet Canvolan on the upper floor which is where the owners live.
One of the main highlights of this chalet is you'll have exclusive use of the home cinema room and sauna, which are on the same level as the Caribou. Don't forget to bring your kids favourite films for the cinema room.
The accommodation, on the lower level, is ideally suited for family use, with three comfortable family rooms each of which has en suite facilities, fitted to a high standard. The attractive open plan lounge and dining area, with feature fireplace, is a good size and offers stunning views towards Val Claret from the large windows and generous terrace.
Keen skiers have various options here, with the nearest lift only about 230m away, as well as a bus stop on the edge of the lake, where the free service will quickly take you up to Val Claret and the lifts leading to the Grande Motte glacier. Or, head down towards the heart of Tignes, where there is a choice of chairlifts on the Tignes side and the high speed Tovière gondola to quickly access the Val d’Isère section of the vast Tignes-Val d'Isère ski area.
One of the joys of choosing a catered chalet or chalet hotel ski holiday is that you won't have to lift a finger in the kitchen, we take care of everything. Our staff prepare and serve breakfast, afternoon tea and a 3-course evening meal including wine and coffee six days a week.
On a staff day off, a continental breakfast is provided for you and in the evening it's a chance to enjoy some delicious local food in one of the resorts restaurants, ensuring you don't leave the Alps without your fill of Tarteflette, Local pasta or Fondue! Our Baby Listening / Child Patrol service allows you to enjoy your evening meal out, without the worry of looking after your kids.
We set high standards for our cuisine, by training our staff extensively before the season starts to ensure you'll enjoy every meal.
In all our properties breakfast is served buffet-style including a choice of cereals or porridge, cold meats, cheese and preserves, bread and croissants, fruit juices, tea and coffee and cooked options such as bacon, sausage, eggs and beans. On the staff day off, a continental style breakfast is laid out for you to help yourselves in all chalets whilst it is served as a buffet in our chalet hotels.
Every day, apart from our staff day off, a home-baked cake and tea and coffee making facilities are laid out for you to help yourself when you return from the slopes. In all our chalet hotels, we also prepare a savoury treat to accompany the sweet ones.
Chalet evening meals
High Tea for all children under 11 is served between 5pm and 6pm. It is served as a 2 course healthy menu, tailored more towards children's tastes and puréed food is available for infants. Parents are asked to accompany their children under 3, whilst 3-10 years old are supervised by our childcare team.
Adult dinner is at 7.30pm and comprises of 3 courses including an appetiser, main dish and dessert. The meal is accompanied by a prosecco apéritif and a choice of red, rose and white wines, culminating with tea or coffee.
A 3 course regional speciality menu is served as one of the 6 evening meals in chalets and the French menu includes charcuterie, goat's cheese salad, tartiflette and tarte tatin, accompanied by the prosecco apéritif and choice of wines.
Staff night off
On the staff night off, you and your family have the opportunity to eat out in one of the local restaurants. Ask our staff for any recommendations. We also offer our Baby Listening/Child Patrol Service in all our chalets on staff night off and every evening in Chalets Corniche in Tignes and Romeo in La Rosière.
Many parents prefer to enjoy adult-only company over dinner but if it's important to you to eat dinner altogether as a family, we offer Family Dining in any chalet when you book the entire chalet for exclusive use. Dinner is then served from 6.30pm with the menu based on our adult dishes with some flexibility for the children's preferences. There is a supplement of £39 per child for Family Dining. Our Chalet Valentine in La Rosière offers family dining throughout the season, with no additional charge.
Alternatively, you may wish to consider staying with us in a chalet hotel where children aged 8 and above have the option of joining their parents at the adult dinner.
