“Chalet Bonjour-Colletine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a week this Easter and I cannot recommend it highly enough! The chalet was beautiful and the staff could not have been more helpful. The food was excellent - exactly what we needed after a long day on the slopes. The rooms were very cosy and everything about the chalet was geared toward making the holiday as comfortable and convenient as possible. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and we were very well looked after. The location was excellent as we were literally two minutes walk from the skilift. Will definitely be returning next year!

Just back from a wonderful week in the Colletine.  The location is excellent, in a charming village and right by the Sache telecabine for virtually ski in and ski out access - we always managed to ski back down to the village even though it hadn't snowed and had been very  warm for a couple of weeks.   We picked a quiet week, but Les Brevieres has the feel of a genuine old French village  and we had the impression that it never feels overrun.  The  chalet itself was very comfortable - not especially stunning from the outside, but really nicely decorated inside with decent size bedrooms and mostly ensuite facilities.  The highlight, though, was being looked after by the excellent Senny and Charlotte.  A delightful pair who delivered the best catering we have ever had in a chalet holiday - Senny's chef skills were simply superb.   It was a real wrench leaving.

Just got back from a weeks skiing in march which I organised for 11 of us. Overall a great holiday and a great location with a very good chalet.

Positives:

Great location; pretty village, very very near to slopes/lift and near to great bars and ski hire shop

the alpine atmosphere of the chalet and it's individuality and quirky features

starters and main courses provided by senni - he is a great chef. some of the best dinners i've had in 30 years of skiing holidays

attitude and helpfullness of chalet staff who were excellent

evening entertainment - quiz and talk from explorer/mountineer Squash Falconer v good

ipod connection to stereo

negatives:
not enough seating in lounge area to accomodate us all

stairs/ ladder up to mezzanine is very scary and one step is loose!

not enough hot water for 11 of us; chalet host says it is because there is only a domestic tank

the cakes were of a poor quality; senni's talents obviously lie in his main courses which were fab.

very poor customer care by owner when we had an issue; it seems all is good until you have an issue (we only had one all week but this it seems was too much for steve to deal with - see transfers below)

transfers; cheap but you get what you pay for - a wait on the outward leg then a very early return journey which goes 45 mins out of the way to collect guests in val d'isere some 17km up the road in the wrong direction before returning back within 1.7km of the chalet where you started at 5:30am! the staff told me this had caused complaint from guests all season and urged me to complain formally which fell on deaf ears sadly.

despite the negatives we all had a great time; tignes has a vast and fantastic ski area and this is a great base from which to explore it. Far prettier than the purpose built areas of tignes.

Room Tip: avoid the double off the lounge - no privacy and shared bathroom mezzanine has scary steps

A group of 12 of us have just got back from an incredible week at The Chalet Colettine. The food was excellent and as other reviewers have said, easily restaurant standard. We were really well looked after by Senny and Charlotte who were really friendly and accommodating, Senny's cooking was so tasty and well presented. Everything about the set up of the company/chalet is really convenient, small things like having ski passes delivered and hire skis fitted at the chalet make such a difference, especially considering the relatively low cost of the accommodation. With exclusive use of the chalet, the discount is significant and I can't imagine that there are many better places in this price range. The location of the chalet is excellent, being able to walk to the Sache bubble in about a minute was so good at the beginning and end of the day and none of the bars/restaurants are more than a couple of minutes walk.

In summary, I can't recommend the chalet and Ski Bonjour in general enough. We had a fantastic week and would certainly return!

Stayed in colletine over new years this year and was hugely impressed. Having been on quite a few Chalet holidays over the last 10 years I would say easily the best food have ever expirienced in a chalet. Well balanced , tasty and immaculately presented. Easily restauarnt standard food and far superior to the any of the actual restaurants in brev or the vast majoirty of tignes for that matter.

The Chalet itself is ideally located close to the slopes,bars and restaurants in the village. Has a very quaint rustic vibe to and very well looked after. Senny and Charlotte who looked after us did an acceptional job all week. Aside from doing what they had to do went beyond that in ensuring everyone was enjoying themselves and socilaised with us after dinner which i always feel is a nice touch.

I cannot reccomend this place enough and would like to say a huge thank you to Senny and Charlotte and wish them all the best for the rest of the season.

What a superb experieince. Friendly and very helpful staff. We had no issues whatsoever as a group of 12 (6 adults and 6 kids 3-11 years old). The chalet was less than a 100 metres from the telecabin and so meant easy to come back for lunch / pick kids up from ski school.

Only thing I would say is that if your kids are below skiing age (i.e. below 4 years old) then there is no day care / creche at Le Brev. You'd be better in Le Lac for that.
For our 3 year old however we had private lessons and as one of us didnt ski it didnt cause any issues

Rooms great, fantastic atmosphere for christmas (including full traditional with Turkey) and even a propoer breakfast.

Only plus point, food was so good (I'm talking good standard restaraunt level) that we came back putting on weight despite a day of skiing every day.

Room Tip: one of the rooms is a mezzanine so if you have guests who want to go to sleep ahead of others be sur...

Hi
thanks for your review. I have very pleased you enjoyed your holiday
Les brev is a great base for a ski holiday but if you need child care there are other resorts which may cater for these needs better. If you dont need child care there is no where better.
hope to see you again

Just back from a wonderful week at the Colettine with our 2 kids (aged 12 and 8) and our friends with kids the same ages.

First some background - Les Brevieres is an old, villagey, small, pretty part of Tignes, very sweet and charming (in significant contrast to Le Lac and Val Claret up the road). The chalet is an old barn (apparently the animals used to live downstairs and the humans upstairs), renovated in I think 2005, in a typical alpine chalet style with exposed beams and stone walls, and low doorways so you need to remember to duck. The photos on the website don't do it justice and in reality it's much nicer than I was expecting. Very close to the main bubble up the mountain and the ski school meeting points, and also to some great restaurants and bars (though we heard absolutely no noise from them at all to my surprise).

As already mentioned in previous reviews, what makes the chalet really special are the wonderful hosts, Dani girl and Danny boy, who are warm and generous and lovely, and who work really hard unobtrusively to give the guests a great time. Danny boy is also a fantastic chef - every day we had a cooked breakfast, cookies /cake in the afternoon and gourmet 3-course dinners. The children had separate children's dinner at 6pm, perfectly pitched at them (spag bol / fish and chips / make your own pizza, ice cream and brownies, banana splits etc).

Remarkably, the fact that there was very little snow (and what little there was was melting fast), and that we chose to drive 20 mins to Val Claret every day for access to more and better snow, did nothing at all to diminish our enjoyment of the chalet, and we would very happily return. If I was forced to come up with some niggles, I would request more shelf storage - our bedroom had hanging space but no shelves, so we lived out of suitcases for the week, and more / better lighting in the main seating area (it was usually too dark to read comfortably). Being totally honest, I would also have to say that the Ski Bonjour admin was a little woolly around the edges (but perfectly well meaning), and, being very very picky, it doesn't give a good impression that most of the paperwork refers to Chalet Colletine instead of Colettine. But that is negligible stuff in context and it speaks for itself if that's my biggest niggle!

Danny and Dani, thanks for an amazing week, you guys are fabulous, keep in touch!
