Just back from a fortnight's holiday with Alpine Elements at this chalet. We had a very good holiday, and could not fault the sports facilities in Tignes La Lac and the surrounding area. The accommodation was fine, we had rooms 4 and 5 which have baths and balconies, most rooms do not have these features. Food was acceptable, but rarely good, frequently cold by the time it was served. Vegetarian food was almost exclusively cheese based, and frequently contained copious ammounts of neat tomato puree - they need to get someone with some food expertise in to design a decent menu.
Staff are mainly students or post A level teens, some are very friendly and helpful, but essentially unskilled. Activities, we paid additional ammounts for - white water rafting, high ropes, and bowling were not charged at rates over the normal amount.
The bikes included in the deal were not really up to more than running around town on. We had problems with brakes failing, and punctures reapperaring after repair. However, staff were pleasant, appologetic and did their upmost to try to sort out issues.
