Large groups like us, party of 12 or small groups and families will have the very best tignes has to offer with Kev and Charlie looking after you. Accomdation and Food was amazing breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner! Pool and sana after a hard day riding was just the ticket too. Kev and Charlie also went more than the extra mile by sorting all our bike hire needs with there close friendly/helpful network of contacts. Nothing was to much trouble including extra running about for us when one the the group had an accident on the hill! Thanks Kev & Charlie
Have just returned from spending a very enjoyable week with Kev and Charlie, the chalet hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for them, be it special dietary requirements, or picking you up after a long walk! The chalet is in a central location, convenient for lifts, walks and free summer activities. Lift passes are free in the summer too. Bedrooms are tastefully decorated with stunning views of the mountains, most rooms also have a balcony. For breakfast each day there is a choice of hot food, also cereals, bread, various spreads and homemade jam provided by Kev's mum. Every day there are delicious cakes baked by Charlie to sample when you return after a hard days biking or walking. The three course evening meals are restaurant standard, beautifully cooked and presented, with excellent wine provided, not cheap plonk!
Kev and Charlie are exceptional hosts making this a truly wonderful place to stay.
I'm not one for writing reviews but I think after staying here it deserves to be mentioned. From the moment Kev and Charlie picked us they they were great. I've never had a host so friendly and helpful. The chalet is in a great location and only a few hundred meters from the centre. After each day there is a sauna and indoor pool to relax in. The food that is cooked each evening is all freshly prepared the same day. We are already planning our next trip.
Our family (2 adults & 2 children) had a fantastic week in Tignes staying in Chalet Les Andes. Both bedrooms were very comfortable and clean. The boys enjoyed the pool (and the pool table) whilst the adults were grateful for the sauna after a days mountain biking.
Kev and Charlie were excellent hosts with nothing being too much bother - from little touches like remembering the youngest member of our party liking warm milk with his cereals to retrieving our family (including bikes) from Val d'Isere when one of us fell ill. Rusty (the dog) is also a delight.
Breakfast and evening meals were all delicious and Charlie's afternoon tea treats were always eagerly anticipated on our return to the Chalet.
Beyond hiking and mountain biking, Tignes has many activities to try most of which are free with the Open Tignes pass.
We would certainly stay at Chalet Les Andes on future trips to Tignes and have no hesitation in recommending it others.
I have just returned from a weeks stay at Chalet Les Andes with Chill Alp. My son and I used it as base for a weeks mountain biking in Tignes.
I chose Chill Alp/Chalet Les Andes as the price was comparable to other accommodation in Tignes but it also included food and had secure bike storage facilities (which from experience can be difficult to find in some hotels).
The Chalet is very clean, comfortable and spacious. It had everything we required and more. It was great to be able to relax in the private pool & sauna after a busy day on the mountains and the indoor bike storage/maintenance area was ideal for storing and working on the bikes. The location is perfect for an active/biking holiday, very central and just a few minutes walk/ride to the chairlifts (which are all free to use :>). There is also plenty of things to do nearby if the weather is not so good.
Kev and Charlie are great hosts and ensure the accommodation feels like a home from home. The food was an excellent standard and plentiful to keep us fueled up for active days in the mountains.
I highly recommend Chil Alp//Chalet Les Andes and hope to return at some point.
Where to start..... As a family we have stayed with Kev and Charlie twice now and loved it more each time! The accommodation is light and airy, the food is amazing and well thought out, the amenities the chalet has to offer are perfect, the kids loved the xbox/chill area immensely and the space you have to relax is exactly what you need on holiday.
We book a week each time we stay and the kids always end up not wanting to go home!
The food is amazing!
3 courses of scrumptious food most nights, gorgeous breakfasts and the magical cakes that charlie makes are just divine! My childrens current favourite this time are her delicious chocolate brownies!
They cater to dietary your needs as well as fussy kids. All to make your stay as perfect as they can make it.
Kev and Charlie are perfect hosts and rusty always kept us entertained chasing the shadows round the dining room!
The location of the chalet couldn't be better, 5 minute walk into the centre of tignes and into all the action! With so many activities on offer in tignes you will be spoilt for choice!
From start to finish our experience at the Les Andes Chalet was just perfect. Whether your looking for an action packed break or a relaxing week away the Les Andes Chalet is the place to go!
If we could give it more than 5 stars we would!
Thanks for an amazing week!
Well... Where to start, I have stayed with "Chill alp" twice now, and both times kev and charlie have been Legends!! There food is amazing, there company is amazing, and the work they do is also amazing. From the first step of the booking process up to the end of the trip everything is relaxed, stress disappears in the hands of kev and charlie.
I stayed in the other chalet (the retreat), but I would come over(out of choice) to this chalet which is only a short distance up the road to eat, chill and have breakfast(A large layout with a cooked breakfast) and of course to use the pool. In the afternoon there are always some magical yummy cakes to indulge in(catered to your dietary needs). O yeh! Dinner is always a 3 course meal, cooked to perfection, even with 21 guests at the table the food came out in great time. The creme brûlée is the best.
you could stay in a different more generic chalet company, but then you won't get this amazing service, all inclusive of rusty the dog, who by the way is hilarious to watch whilst he chases endless shadows around the chalet. And a great distraction for children, because parents and other guests may not want to play lego batman all the time with the kids.
I really do believe staying with these guys is like a home from home, because it just feels that comfortable, the location, the company, and the host's. I would recommend to everyone, not just my friends.
