Let’s be blunt. You didn’t come all the way to the French Alps for a chalet ski holiday to spend all your time doomscrolling your Instagram feed… In this fast-paced digital age where it is almost impossible to find time away from a screen, disconnection has never been more important.
At Chalet Chardons, our chalets not only offer a fantastic base for your ski holiday, but also provide the perfect backdrop for a digital detox. Whether you’re wanting a moment to reflect, some time to read the book you’ve been saying you were going to read for the past few months, or you simply need some time away from that one person in the group that’s really grinding your gears, we have something for you.
Despite the availability of Wi-Fi in all our chalets, this blog encourages you to resist the pull of constant connectivity. Let’s explore the unique spaces in our chalets designed to help you unwind, recharge, and reconnect with the world around you:
Chalet Panoramique: For Gym Rats and Couch Potatoes Alike
The Living Room: Embrace the Art of Conversation
Within the 5-story Chalet Panoramique, you’ll discover three distinct living spaces, each offering its own unique retreat. While all three present the opportunity to detach from the digital world, it’s the top-floor living area that stands out as the ideal sanctuary to shield you from both the intrusive glow of screens and the biting cold of the mountain air outside. The view over the valley provides the ideal backdrop for meaningful conversations with friends, family, and fellow guests.
The Gym: Sweat It Out, Digital-Free
If skiing and snowboarding don’t tire you out, you can always escape the virtual world in Chalet Panoramique’s complimentary gym. Equipped with everything you need for a satisfying workout, including a weight machine, bike, and rowing machine, the gym buffs of the group will love this space to sweat out any stress and distractions that they might be having on the mountainside. On top of that, you can always wash up in the hot tub afterwards (more on that later!).
Chalet Sophia’s Scenic Seats: Breathtaking Views from the Balcony
Step onto the balcony of Chalet Sophia, and you’ll find yourself perched in the front row of a natural spectacle. The panoramic seats, strategically placed to capture the majestic mountain views, invite you to revel in the grandeur of the French Alps. Whether you’re sipping on a cup of tea, having a quiet moment to yourself, or enjoying the view with your travel companions, these balcony seats provide an idyllic space for connection and reflection.
Chalet Rosko’s Games Room: Where Fun Takes Centre Stage
For those seeking a break from screens but not from entertainment, Chalet Rosko‘s games room is the perfect place to be. This room is pub-sport heaven, where you can challenge friends and family to games of pool, table football, darts, or a board game. In this tech-free haven, there’s no shortage of ways to keep yourselves entertained, guaranteeing a memorable – if somewhat slightly competitive – experience for everyone.
Chalet Indah and Chalet Boubou: The Swinging Chairs Sanctuary
Tucked away in the charming corners of Chalet Indah and Chalet Boubou are the indoor swing chairs – your ticket to some much-needed peace and quiet. These chairs provide the ultimate escape: whether you’re engrossed in a good book; savouring a cup of chocolat chaud or simply immersing yourself in the natural beauty that surrounds the chalets, the chairs can leave you undisturbed by the constant hum of digital distractions.
Chalet Coeur des Brévières’ Sauna: Sweat Out Your Demons With A View
Chalet Coeur des Brévières boasts a beautiful wooden sauna that is the perfect finale to a long day on the slopes. Get your ski gear off, your skimpies on, and unwind amidst the snow-covered peaks.
While many of our other chalets boast their own saunas, this one’s unmatched proximity to the pub—a mere one-minute walk—allows you to detox in style (in more ways than one).
Hot Tub Bliss: Soaking Away Digital Distractions
The piece de resistance. No digital detox is complete without a touch of indulgence, and most of our chalets in Tignes les Brévières have just the thing – a hot tub. Before you step into the soothing waters and feel the tension melt away, you’ve got to make the perilous journey in your swimming trunks outside in the freezing alpine air, but trust us, it’s worth it.
Once you make it in, let the Alps be the soundtrack to your relaxation and your ticket away from the bright lights of the digital screen.
Our chalets offer more than just comfortable accommodation; they provide sanctuaries for a digital detox. Each unique space, from swinging chairs to steamy saunas, encourages you to unplug and enjoy the present moment on your chalet ski holiday. So, pack your bags, say au revoir to your screens, and embark on a journey to rediscover the joy of genuine connections and the beauty of the French Alps.
