Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Tignes le Lavachet - Le Homeclub
Well equipped self catering ski apartments all in same building
The apartments are in a large residence that looks out over the village of Le Lavachet, which is an ideal location for easy skiing. Access to the slopes is by chair lift directly from the village (about 50 metre walk) and you can ski straight back to the door of the residence!! There are numerous shops and restaurants in the village, and a 24 hour free bus service to the other villages in Tignes. We have wonderful views from the apartments. The north-facing ones have a view right across the valley of the Lac de Chevril dominated by the beautiful peak of the Grande Sassiere. The large south facing apartments have a view of Tignes and the glacier on the Grande Motte. All apartments are modern and well furnished. They are all fully equipped to a high standard.
The Skiing and Boarding: The apartment is situated in Tignes in the best mountain ski area in France, the Espace Killy, which links Val d'Isere and Tignes. The village of Le Lavachet offers a supermarket several bars and restaurants 2 lifts to whisk you up to the slopes and a regular bus service to link you with the other areas of Tignes.It is ideal for intermediates and advanced skiers, although beginners are well catered for, offering a learning area where they can be a part of the scene right in the centre of the village.The Grande Motte glacier offers skiing right through into early May. Take the opportunity to take a second ski trip late season when there is fantastic snow and the slopes are virtually empty.
There is a first class boarder park in Tignes and also in Val d'Isere.
The Golf: The golf in summer is on the Par 68 5000 yard course situated on the meadowed slopes of Tignes. Situated at 2100 metres it is the highest golf course in Europe. The experience of playing golf at this height is amazing as the balls fly for forever due to the thinner air. The wildlife of wild goats and marmots also provide a difference from the local golf course, but best of all are the natural hazards.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Many thanks for the use of your apartment. We had a fantastic week.
Our children really enjoyed your DVDs on the two afternoons when visibility
was zero and only lunatics were out on the slopes.

Le Lavachet is a village of Tignes 2100 right in the heart of the ski area. The apartments are in a large modern apartment building with good access to the pistes (50 metre walk to the path to ski down to the lifts) and then ski back to the front door.
We chose Tignes because it has a superb snow record and the longest season in the French Alps starting from November and finishing in the middle of May. It has the Grande Motte glacier at 3250 metres which allows skiing at ll times even if the snow cover is low in other resorts.
