About Rachel Thomas

After having enjoyed a few ski seasons in my early twenties and a number of ski holidays with my now husband we decided to leave London for 6 months and headed to Tignes the winter after we got married. We had such a good time that we decided to buy and property and make it our winter home for the next 2 years. With the arrival of our son and 2 years later our daughter we chose to base ourselves back in the UK and now spend our holidays each winter and summer in Tignes enjoying an active outdoor lifestyle. It is a great place to ski, the locals are very friendly and welcoming and the resort has so much to offer. We hope that you enjoy staying in our home and have as much fun on the slopes as we do.

Rachel Thomas purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Rachel Thomas chose Tignes

We bought this property for it's location and size. As soon as you enter the apartment it feels light and spacious with large floor to ceiling windows to capture the views. Offering a large master bedroom with ensuite bathroom at one end of the apartment and a bunk room with another bathroom next door you can have some space between parents and children or couples and friends. The open-plan kitchen dining area is very sociable allowing everyone to interact whilst cooking, eating and relaxing on the sofas. Roches Rouges C is located on a quite road with very little passing traffic so you will not be disturbed in the evenings. We are located next to the piste, close to the underground car park, bakery, shops, bars and bus stop.

What makes this apartment unique

You can ski in and out of this property, if the snow is really good and the road hasn't been cleared you can even ski to the door! If your legs are feeling a little weary you can take the free bus to the end of the road on your return home and enjoy a hot bath. There are 2 balconies with large views of the surrounding mountains. The kitchen is well equipped with a large fridge freezer, full sized oven, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Notre semaine fut parfaite!

Le temps était idéal, beaucoup de soleil. On en a bien profité.

L'appartement était aussi parfait. Le plus pratique et confortable que l'on ai eu depuis ces 3 dernières années.

Je reprendrai peut-être contact avec vous pour l'année prochaine, assez rapidement, tellement il était bien.

Je vous remercie pour vos services.

Spacious apartment great location!

  • 3 of 5

Myself and my husband stayed in the apartment for one week at the beginning of April for a skiing holiday with family and friends who were staying in Val claret. We found the apartment very comfortable and spacious and very well situated for reaching the slopes and chairlift which was just across the road from the apartment block.We found the large double bed very comfortable except for the quilt which was very thick but too small for the bed and the shower in the ensuite bathroom was not working so we had to use the shower in the second bathroom.The kitchen was quite modern and well equipped with everything needed for a self catering holiday.The only criticism we have is that apart from the kitchen the rest of the apartment and furnishings could do with a bit of upgrading as it was all a bit tired and worn.We would definitely consider staying in this apartment again!!

Very Happy

Sharon and Phil Pilling

Owner's Response: I am very pleased that you enjoyed our spacious, well appointed apartment. Sorry about the duvet, I suspect the wrong sized cover was put on rather than a king sized one. Thank you for letting us know that the apartment could do with some redecoration, feedback is always appreciated and upgrading will be our aim during the inter-season.

Great property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

What a great find. A brilliant property in a great location. Booking process was quick and easy. All my questions and queries were answered quickly and Rachel if great informative and knowledgable.

The property is surprisingly spacious (there were 4 of us on a snowboarding Holliday) with good beds and equipped with great facilities like a dishwasher and washing machine.

Would highly recommend you book this space. I will certainly be back in future.

The owner was very helpful before our arrival, answering any questions we asked.

This apartment though, is very poorly maintained. The gas cooker had hugh flames leaping out. The hoover, washing rack, one armchair and one of the showerheads were broken. Several things were dusty. We had to dust the bedroom shelves before putting our clothes on them. It really does not seem like anyone is managing this property.

Tignes is stunning with lots of sports activities on a beautiful lake, but we would definitely not return to this apartment.

Owner's Response: I am relieved that you felt that I responsed in a satisfactory way to your many requests before staying at our apartment. It is disapointing that we were not able to meet your needs during your stay but my agent in resort did solve what she could. However the problem with the gas could not be addressed as you requested that she did not come to deal with the issue during your stay. On this basis we could not meet your request for money to replace your saucepans which you chose to use in place of those provided. This is the first time that anyone has rated our apartment as unsatisfactory.

Appartement aux pieds des pistes très confortable.

  • 4 of 5

Deux chambres avec une bonne litterie. Équipement de la cuisine complet. Il manque juste un service à raclette pour plus de convivialité.
