Location – Chalet Sophia in Tignes
The Chalet Sophia in Tignes is located in the ‘Hauts des Brévières’ area and is a short walk to both the village centre and the ski lifts. Direct access to the slopes is via the new Brévières Chalet Lift at the end of the road only 100 metres away.
Access to the lifts is found by walking 3 to 4 minutes down to the slopes or via the new elevator-style ski lift that comes right from the foot of the pistes to the end of the road (around 100m from the front door). Depending on conditions it is often possible to ski down to the main gondola lift in the mornings from the top of the elevator lift.
Description – Chalet Sophia in Tignes
Chalet Sophia is a modern ski chalet in Tignes Les Brévières with spacious and stylish accommodation featuring well-appointed bedrooms and excellent facilities including sauna, WiFi, satellite TV and panoramic outdoor hot-tub overlooking the village and lake. It’s perfect for après-ski drinks to soak away the day’s skiing efforts.
Chalet Sophia is laid out over four floors with plenty of wooden beams and local stone on display. The very spacious living area has an open fire, tasteful furniture and access to a south-facing balcony overlooking the village and lake. The open-plan dining and kitchen area adjoins the living area and is stylishly decorated with ample room for everybody to eat together. On a split-level down from the dining room there is a wet-area with shower and WC for use with the sauna and the outdoor hot-tub which, again, enjoys views over the village and lake. The ground floor has one twin/double en-suite bedroom and the ski-storage area with heated boot-warmers. The first floor has three twin/double bedrooms, all with en-suite shower rooms with WC and all finished to a beautiful standard. The top floor has four bedrooms. The two eaves bedrooms share one bathroom with WC and the other two bedrooms share the other shower room with WC and can be used as a family room via an adjoining locking door if required. All bedrooms can be configured as twin/double rooms. 3 extra beds can be added to allow 20 people to sleep in this chalet.
The chalet features hot-tub and sauna areas which are accessed from the central living/dining area. The sauna is built in the Scandinavian style with a ‘hot-coal’ system that water is poured onto to produce the steam, multi-level wooden benches and a pine interior. Located on an external balcony, the hot tub is perfect for a relaxing après-ski soak with a glass of wine whilst enjoying the picturesque views over the village and lake. Between the sauna and hot-tub there is a ‘wet-area’ with a shower for use before and after bathing, a small changing area and a WC.
There is ample ski storage within the chalet with racks for skis, an area for suitcases and bags and a heated boot dryer/warmer.
Free parking is provided outside the chalets but this is somewhat limited and can be difficult should there be significant snowfall as the snowploughs need to get through. We recommend that guests park outside the chalet to drop off baggage and then take their cars to either of the large free parking areas at the North or South of the village where they will be safely dug out in the event of snowfall. If guests are arriving by public transport, it is a five minute walk up to the chalet from the bus stop. Most private transfer companies will drop you at the door of the chalets.
A hearty breakfast consists of a choice of cereals, fruit, preserves, yoghurts, selection of French pastries, freshly baked baguette porridge, and different daily hot options (for example one morning the chalet hosts offer sausage, hash browns and beans; another day they offer bacon, scrambled egg and grilled tomatoes) plus tea (PG tips), fruit teas, coffee, hot chocolate and juice.
Afternoon tea is served from 4pm with freshly-baked cakes plus beverages.
Hot drinks are available throughout the day.
The evening meal consists of a four-course meal or banquet style meal served with complimentary French bottled quality red and white wine and includes a daily cheese-board (featuring local cheeses and homemade chutney). Plentiful portions ensure you are well fed and nobody will leave the table hungry. All the food is home-made by the carefully selected professional head-chef and his team.
