Can't get better than this for easy access to pistes and village facilities. Everything is on the doorstep.
Good communications and helpful tips from the owners. Well equiped apartment with comfortable beds. Comfortable for 4, but will sleep more. Suitable for families and quiet at night.
Plenty of shops, bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk, and useful free bus service to other parts of Tignes. No need for a car while you are there.
Free access to the local leisure pool and ice-skating rink with a weekly ski pass. Big price differences between restaurants, not always reflected in quality. It is worth looking around and trying some of the smaller, cheaper places.
Good quiet skiing areas over the ridge using the "Fresse" lift in front of the apartment, but return runs to Val Claret are either relatively hard blues ("Isolee", "Piste H"), or involve up-hill sections. Beginners area right outside the apartment, but gets busy. This area is probably best for people who are at least at the stage where they are comfortable with tougher blue runs and can tackle some reds. On a good day, the treck over to the pistes above the Col de l'Iseran, via Val d'Isere, is well worth the effort.
