I stayed in the Chalet Hotel Aigle between 28 Jan and 5 Feb with my partner. It was the first time that I'd stayed in a chalet that actually matches the brochure description exactly. We booked 6 days before we left so paid half the brochure price which was an absolute bargain. I would definately pay more to go again. We got the early flight so got to the hotel at lunch time. We were greeted by Gemma, the hotel manager who was brilliant all week as were the rest of the staff plus plenty of cake and coffee. Nothing was too much trouble and they were really helpful. Breakfast is cooked every day, even on their day off (proper portions too, not one sausage and one bacon rasher like other places we've been too). There's also the usual continetal options available. The afternoon tea with a never ending supply of tea/coffee/hot chocolate was great for when you get back. Evening meals were restaurant standard in my opinion. The local wines you get to choose from are very drinkable too! We stayed in a small twin and yes it was small but plenty of space for clothes (although not many hangers). Use a soft case so you can put it under the ned too. Rooms were cleaned every day if you wanted. The sauna was great in the afternoons. The pool is quite small and a bit chilly but very clean etc. The chalet is absolutely ski in, within 2 metres of the boot room. Free Wi-fi in the living area too. Ski out is a very short walk to part of a red run - but it's gentle down to the Chaudanne lift. It was a 5 minute downhill walk into town but we didn't venture out much although there were plenty of bars around if that's what you're after. Being up the hill, you didn't get the evening noise which meant a good night's sleep was had.
We only tried one evening activity - the ice karting. It was really good fun, racing in teams of 4 but note, you can go independantly for less money! Only downside was that the boot heaters didn't work in the boot room. We just took our boots up to our room with us in the evening. That's my only negative. Overall, great resort, great hotel and great staff. Tignes is definately a great place to go. Careful on the black run back into La Lac though. We saw ambulances almost every day!
