Chalet Chardons Hatties ski lodge


Chardons Isabella is a modern ski chalet in Tignes Les Brévières, 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, perfect for après-ski drinks to soak away the day’s skiing efforts. The chalet 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 right at the end of the road only 100 metres away. As with all our accommodation the chalet is great value and offers skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts a top-quality chalet holiday at an unbeatable price.

Chardons Isabella 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 tastefully 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 high 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.

The chalet sleeps up to 17 people. If the whole chalet is booked by one group, the 17th bed is free of charge.

The chalet is run and catered by three experienced staff, one chef and 2 hosts. As with all Chalet Chardons clients you will benefit from unbeatable deals on your ski and snowboard hire plus substantial ski-pass reductions.

The Chalet offers our premium chalet menu featuring a hearty breakfast each day with pastries and hot options, sumptuous home-made cake for afternoon tea and a delicious five-course evening meal served with quality French bottled wine on six nights. In addition there are extra touches such as a nightly cheese board, canapés and welcome drinks during the week. See our Food & Drink page for more details.

The chalet features hot-tub and sauna sections 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. The hot-tub is located on an external balcony and 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.

Access to the lifts can be either 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.

There is ample ski storage within the chalet with racks for skis, an area for suitcases and bags and a heated boot dryer/warmer.

There is free parking outside the chalets but this is somewhat limited and can be difficult should there be significant snowfall as the snowploughs need to get through and the road is quite tight. 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 and there is no chance of them getting blocked in or, worse, buried under several feet of snow by a passing plough. 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.

With this addition to our range of lodgings we are offering an alternative higher quality style of accommodation from Chalet Chardons but with the same great atmosphere, fun staff and informal environment and, of course, the same great value skiing and snowboarding holiday prices. You will benefit from all the advantages of Chalet Chardons clients with regard to cheap ski and snowboard hire, reductions in lift pass prices and access to our knowledgeable reps who will be able to organise your skiing and snowboarding holiday needs.

Chalet Isabella is available for rent either exclusively for larger groups or on a room-by-room basis. Our prices listed are per person per week for catered accommodation in the chalet. Prices vary according to the season, contact the UK booking line or by email for a quote.


I said in my 2015 review of Chalet Chardons that we would happily return. We did. Same chalet, same welcoming atmosphere, same quality of food, same customer service. We stayed in the identical chalet nextdoor, Sophia, and I can't fault this place, the location is good, the lift down from the end of the road to the main ski lift is ideal. 50m walk up to it is all you have to do on foot. The staff were again brilliant, friendly, good food, willing to join conversation and have a laugh with you, and will leave you be if you wish. The hot tub is lovely, nice view, great way to unwind. Seriously, Sophia/Isabella is a great chalet. super value for money. You can't go wrong. The town is small but nice, a couple bars and restaurants. Might be small for a self catered week, but for all inclusive chalet its plenty. The skiing is great, two lifts and you can be in the main Tignes bowl or you can stay high and go all the way around it. I was again surprised by the lack of queues!

Great food from Seth and fantastic hosting from Alexia and Claudia. Perfect location overlooking the village and easy access to the lifts and the moose bar. Really couldn't have asked for more and amazing value for money wish I could have stayed all season long. Stayed April 2016, travelled with friends

Had a lovely week at Chalet Isabella; nicely maintained accommodation, benefiting from hot tub with lovely views of snowy mountain scenes and comfy lounge area, with roaring fire - all making this a great chalet for groups of friends or family. What edged it above other chalets was the lovely food, and general hospitality provided by chalet hosts Seth, Alexia and Claudia - making of a very indulgent time, and helping the various chalet occupiers settle in together. Yes, chalet up a hill in Les Brevieres but this was no problem - we skied directly to the village every day and then a much appreciated lift carried us up to our street end.

We stayed in Chalet Isabella in April & had a fantastic time. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, ours was very big with a king sized bed. We had fluffy dressing gowns provided, and the sauna & hot tub were an excellent way to relax after a hard day on the slopes. There is a lift a couple of hundred yards away, which takes you right down to the edge of the slopes next to the Sache gondola. Alice and Susie looked after us superbly, with wonderful food and plenty of wine. We were fortunate to be upgraded to this chalet as Hattiers, which we loved having stayed there in February, wasn't open so late in the season. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this Chalet again in the future.

I stayed at this lovely chalet with my partner who is a keen skier. A couple of ski buddies also joined us there for a week at the end of the season. We had originally booked for Chalet Chardons and we're lucky enough to be upgraded to this premium chalet at no extra cost. What a bargain! We knew we loved the village of Brev as we'd stayed at the excellent Chalet Hattiers in February. We were delighted to see Alice working in the kitchen, and Susie looked after the rest of the chalet. Our room was clean and spacious with a comfy king sized bed and modern bathroom. Fluffy towels and bathrobes plus toiletries add a touch of luxury; the sauna and hot tub takes this to another level.

We stayed here and from the second we arrived we had two great hosts. Ross & Alice were brilliant nothing was to much trouble. Chalet was lovely we stayed in bedroom 4, with our own balcony it was lovely with amazing views over the mountains. Only downside to the bedroom is the creaking floorboards on the room above, most days we could ski to the door other days very short 2 min walk to slopes. Overall if you want a bit of luxury on a ski holiday book here you won't be disappointed.

We have just returned from a great weeks skiing here, now like most I generally read the good and bad reviews but don't write many, however I think the all the staff at Chardons should get another pat on the back, Me and my wife stayed at Chalet Sophia and were really well looked after,the food was fantastic, breakfast, afternoon cakes and the dinner were better than a lot of restaurant's we eaten in! The hot tub and sauna was great the girls kept the whole place spotless and really made us welcome by being so friendly and helpful we got to know everyone really well, I am planning to revisit for biking this year and skiing next year, so thank you to Tracy, Sarah, T.J and especially Olivia and her team Sarah and Daisy.

The above images on this page are all photos taken within our Chalets and represents food actually produced by our highly trained staff.

Our chalet food is one of the highlights of your holiday. We believe that skiing and snowboarding should be about getting fresh air, exercise, thrills and spills… and then coming back and completely spoiling yourself!

Our chalets offer restaurant quality breakfast, afternoon tea and a five-course evening meal including canapés and a cheese board each evening served with complimentary French bottled white and red wine.

Breakfast has a selection of French pastries, freshly baked baguette, preserves, yoghurt, fruit, choice of cereals, tea, coffee, juices, porridge cooked to order and a different hot option daily (for example, on one morning we offer sausage, scrambled egg & tomato; on another morning we offer bacon, fried egg, hash brown and mushrooms).

Afternoon tea is served from 4pm and consists of delicious freshly baked cakes, tea (PG tips), selection of herbal and fruit teas, freshly brewed coffee, hot chocolate and cordial, all available until dinner. Tea and coffee are available throughout the day and after dinner.

Dinner is served in the chalet in a communal setting – a 5-course meal with canapés and cheeseboard. Plentiful portions are served ensuring you will be well fed and nobody will leave the table feeling hungry.

A packed lunch can be ordered for a small fee each day and will be prepared for you to pick up at breakfast if you are going on a day trip or just want to save money on the mountain.

Children, vegetarians, vegans and special diets are all catered for. Just let us know at the time of booking and the menu can be discussed further with your chalet team. If you have specific requirements (vegan, allergies, celiac) we would ask that you let us know sometime in advance so we can prepare and to bring any special foods with you as many of them can be very hard to source in France.

Chef’s night off is normally on a Wednesday or Tuesday when the hotel staff have some well deserved time off. Our staff will be happy to recommend some of the many excellent restaurants in the village.
