Overview

About the property

Beautiful 3 bedroom ( sleeps 6-8) apartment in the Ecrin des Neiges building .

This luxurious ski chalet style apartment is located in the high altitude ski resort of Val Claret in Tignes, the popular high altitude ski resort in France. IDEAL for a LATE or EARLY SEASON WEEK, as the snow record is second to none! We ski earlier and later at Tignes than anyone else!!

Adjacent to the apartment is a beautiful mountain restaurant

Val Claret itself is packed with over 20 restaurants, as well as bars and nightclubs.

Supermarkets are a 4 minute walk.

Free car parking beneath the apartment is included and is accessed by a lift.

Being one of the highest resorts in Europe, Tignes also offers more skiing in winter and in summer than pretty well anywhere else, thanks to its high altitude skiing on the Grande Motte glacier and its commitment to maintain a vertical of at least 1000 metres for eight months of the year. Sharing the vast and exciting 'l'Espace Killy ' ski area with Val d'Isère, purpose-built Tignes has the stronger French influence.

In summer, we include a Tignes sports card, which allows 22 free activites ( weather permitting), plus the ski lifts are free for pedestrians and bike riders.

Nice - but would not rebook

  • 3 of 5

The location was excellent, not ski in, ski out but good access to bus shuttle and the shops. The kitchen was well appointed with equipment. Negatives were the bedroom sizes for the second and third bedroom, they were extremely small and the third bedroom had no window or outlook at all. The living space was cluttered with too many chairs and small tables so it made the space feel very small. Storage space for long ski bags was not available in the unit which made it feel more cluttered.

Owner's Response: I’m sorry that the apartment didn’t don’t meet your your expectations. I think this comment does show the importance of reading the advertisement before booking to ensure that it meets your requirements. We never claim that this apartment is ski in Ski out although with the free shuttle service in tignes it is very quick and easy to reach the lift. We have added more comfortable seating , responding to previously comments- clearly there is a balance between space and seating. There is space under the beds for long ski bags or they can be folded and placed in the wardrobes. The ski locker in the basement holds 8 people’s skis and boots.

CONVENIENT AND COMFORTABLE

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this property for five weeks in the Summer of 2017, skiing on the Grande Motte glacier.

L’Ecrin des Neiges is well located at the entrance to Val Claret. There are bus stops immediately outside the apartment building which can be used to get to the Grande Motte lift system, or to travel to other parts of the resort. Alternatively, Grande Motte is about an 8 minute walk away.

Access to the upper level shopping area of Val Claret is by elevator, which is conveniently positioned close by to the apartment building. A few steps from the top of the elevator is a good, “Sherpa” supermarket and artisan bakery, as well as other shops and restaurants. However, many of these close out of season so for our first week in the resort we had to travel to Tignes du Lac for shopping.

For those driving, there is a good underground car park in L’Ecrin des Neiges.

The apartment is comfortable, with a good balcony, and is generally well-equipped. As long-stay guests we probably cooked for ourselves more than the average holidaymaker. The kitchen area is small but does contain everything you need, and we were able to produce some high-quality meals.

The property comprises three bedrooms, together with a living/dining area and open kitchen. There is a family bathroom and separate toilet, as well as an en-suite shower room and toilet in the master bedroom. The bedrooms are on the small side, but were perfectly adequate. Be aware, though, that although two of the bedrooms have views to the outside, the third has a window into the main corridor of the apartment building and has no natural light.

One drawback for us was the lack of washing machine/drier in the apartment. There is a washing machine and drier available to the residents of the L’Ecrin des Neiges apartment building, but this is shared with other apartments and was often in use. To use the machine you must buy tokens from the front desk.

Despite the (relatively minor) shortcomings, overall this apartment is well appointed, comfortable, pleasantly furnished and well located. The owner was very easy to deal with and very responsive to our needs, and Tignes Angels, who provided local concierge services, were equally helpful and responsive.

Excellent Value for Money

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed with our stay at the apartment. Great location, clean, well maintained and bigger than expected. The slopes are 5 minutes away and val claret town centre even closer.

The apartment is perfect for 6, or 8 if you don't mind being on the sofa bed.The kitchen is very well kitted out and we never had an issue feeding 7 people.The block itself is well maintained and the private boot locker is very handy.

We had a great week and would definitely recommend to anyone considering staying.

p.s being greeted with a bottle of wine and chocolates was a nice touch

Warm, clean and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable flat in Val Claret. Plenty of space for seven of us on a skiing holiday. Easy access to the Tignes slopes as well as the shops and restaurants in the centre. Directly opposite, perhaps, the best restaurant, Chalet Bouvier. There was limited privacy for the chap on the sofabed. Not an issue for us but could be for some.

Owner's Response: Yes the sofa bed is in the communal living area which has to be used to access the bathrooms, kitchen and to exit the apartment so it is important to be quite friendly if using the sofa bed but there are 3 double/ twin bedrooms so sleeps 6 very comfortably and with privacy and 8 if you're all very friendly!

Well equipped, comfortable & convenient

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay we had! The apartment was very clean and well presented on arrival. It is really well equipped and with a really nice touch of a welcome gift. We were a family of 4 so had more than enough room. The beds were very comfortable, the location was quiet (except on New Year's Eve!) despite being opposite a restaurant, which I had been unnecessarily slightly concerned about before arrival. We ate in every night as we were more than happy just to cook and chill out in the apartment after a hard days skiing. There is the new attraction of snow tubing just across the road, that we also did one night, which was great fun.

The underground parking is fabulous, with just enough headroom to get our VW transporter in there. Perfect for unloading/loading up at the start/end of our trip. Couldn't have been easier. Louise was very accommodating to our arrival & departure times, and sent through loads of helpful information before our arrival.

We found the skiing to be excellent - lots of snow despite the dearth elsewhere, and the ski school for our children Evolution 2 was superb. The children loved it.

We would definitely recommend both Tignes and this apartment for a fantastic family ski holiday ... I wish we were still there!!

Located close to the centre of Val claret Village in the resort of ski apartment offers the perfect setting for exploring the Espace Killy ski area. The apartment itself sits close to the bottom of the grande motte funicular lift up to the glacier at 3500m, making it a perfect setting for winter sport activities . There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the vast poste areas of Tignes and Val d'Isere and even bigger off piste areas. Tignes le lac, le Lavachet, les Boisses and Les Brevieres are within easy reach either on skis or using the free Tignes bus service. The apartment has been finished to a high standard in a ski chalet style.
