With the slopes on the door step and shops and restraunts just accross the road, we couldn't have asked for any more! The apartment had absolutely everything we could wish for and is the nicest apartment we've stayed in as a family. We would definitely book again when we next visit Tignes.

It was warm, cosy and very nicely furnished - it never felt crowded There is a keyless entry system which we loved – wish I had one at home It’s also in a great location, only a few minutes’ walk to the slopes where you can then ski down to the chairlift. We could not actually ski back to the door when we were there but you can with a little more snow. It’s only a 1 minute walk so no problem really You have everything you need here including a washer and dryer – we used that dryer a lot! The shuttle bus stop is only about a minute away in case you want to take the bus to another ski area This is one of the best ski apartments we have ever rented and we will definitely be making a return visit.

Louise and Elaine were so helpful through the booking process and helped us settled in upon arrival. Tignes is probably one of the best ski areas in Europe and we loved it. Great restaurants, bars and close to the supermarket; what more could one ask for? Would highly recommend.
