We have just stayed in Chalet Cairn for a week in March this year. The Chalet Hosts were excellent and Conscientious wanting to give us a great holiday experience. The food was very good starting from breakfast, afternoon cake and biscuits through to the evening meal. The wine was also of a quality I did not expect. The position of... More

Just returned back from an awesome week at Chalet Cairn in Tignes with Dougal and Charlotte hosting for Ski Total. Have been on more than a dozen chalet holidays over the years and can honestly say for location (v. short walk to the lifts even for the little ones, but in a quiet and peaceful spot), ambience, style and facilities...

Let's start with the excellent...Dougal & Charlotte are awesome. Their cooking leaves some real fine dining restaurants behind. We had better meals from them than at the Michelin starred restaurant on the grand motte. They were there for any issues and friendly and professional throughout. The communal areas of the chalet are of an exceptional standard . Great hot tub... More

We agree that young children and adults are not always an ideal mix in a ski chalet and therefore Ski Total chalets welcome guests aged 13 years plus which this does not usually cause concern with our guests. Younger children are always welcome in our Chalet Hotels and when any chalet is booked for sole use only. We are sorry... More

We've just spent the New Year week in this chalet with two other families, and I cannot recommend it more highly - we had a fabulous week. The chalet was comfy, warm and homely, but it was the chalet hosts, Dougal and Charlotte, that really made the week special. After a tricky journey they warmly welcomed us to the chalet... More

Having not heard much of Chalet Cairn it was a breath of fresh air to be greeted by Dougal, one of hosts, coming off the bus. Our other host was Charlotte and they were fantastic throughout a week where poor snow could have easily sapped our spirits. The food was first class. The chalet itself was perfectly positioned, a 2min... More

Like every room I have ever seen in tignes, the bedrooms are small, but the views are breathtaking. There aren't many buildings right on the lake, and this is one of them, so to hot tub on the lakeside is very special. Easy stroll to ski lifts and town with the sports centre opposit, so everything perfectly on hand. The... More

Having read some of the reviews already submitted I can only believe this was their first time in a catered chalet and had nothing to compare it to. Platimum it was not....we have stayed in several ski total chalets at a 4 star range and this could only be classed as around a 3 star. Chalet Anne Marie in Tignes... More

The previous review by Ianonline is broadly correct. The chalet has made good some things contained within it but the fact remains that this is not a 5 star prestige chalet. In my experience they never are, max occupancy through a whole season with no time in between for cleaning by the young people that manage them. Within 24 hrs... More

We are sorry that you felt disappointed by certain aspects of your stay in the Cairn despite its location and the spectacular views this offers.
