Chalet Caribou is conveniently situated in a quiet Tignes street, above the lake, opposite our Nursery in Chalet Iceberg, and just 50m from our Snow Club in the Yosemite building (see image). It shares a building with Chalet Canvolan on the upper floor where the owners live.
The building has a home cinema room and a sauna, both on the same level as the Caribou and for sole use of families staying in Chalet Caribou.
The Caribou's accommodation, on the lower level, is ideally suited for family use, with three comfortable family rooms each of which has en suite facilities, fitted to a high standard.The attractive open plan lounge and dining area, with feature fireplace, is a good size and offers stunning views towards Val Claret from the large windows and generous terrace.
Keen skiers have various options here, with the nearest lift only about 230m away, as well as a bus stop on the edge of the lake, where the free service will quickly take you up to Val Claret and the lifts leading to the Grande Motte glacier, or down towards the absolute heart of Tignes, where there is a choice of chairlifts on the Tignes side and the high speed Tovière gondola to quickly access the Val d’Isère section of the vast Tignes-Val d'Isère ski area.
Pack your family's favourite DVDs to make the most of the home cinema, a popular base for children.
