About the property

Superb Location - all amenities within 200m of apartment

This spacious chalet style apartment (43m²) is situated on the 8th floor with stunning panoramic views of the mountain and lake. Accommodation is made up of a double bedroom, bunk room, bathroom with shower & toilet, kitchen, large living room with a south facing balcony and a ski locker.

This centrally heated apartment is very comfortable and can easily cater for up to 6 persons. There is a mezzanine double bed in the main bedroom, a bunk bed in the second bedroom and a double sofa bed in the living room.

The apartment is new to the rental market and comes fully furnished to a very high standard with all equipment as new. The kitchen is fully equipped with electric hob, dishwasher, fridge, toaster, kettle, coffee maker with plenty of cutlery, crockery and glasses. Other features include a 26' flat screen TV, satellite TV channels, hair dryer, iron, ironing board. Clean bed linen and towels are included in the price.

The Resort: The Savoie Region of France is a mecca for skiers of all abilities from across Europe. Being the highest resort in Europe the one thing that Tignes is guaranteed is good snow. The season starts earlier and finishes later than most other resorts. According to 'The good Ski & Snowboarding Guide 2005' Tignes is one of only two ski areas in France listed as 'Snow-sure resorts'. Tignes skiing is a combination of the pistes of Tignes and Val D'Isere which combine to make up the L’Espace Killy. There are 300km of pistes: 20 green runs, 60 blues, 35 reds and 16 blacks, plus 44 km of cross country skiing, 2 terrain parks, 2 glaciers and 90 ski lifts including 2 high speed underground trains (funicular railways).

It offers the largest area of on piste skiing in Europe as well as some of the most extensive off piste skiing making Tignes one of Europe's premier resorts. The majority of runs are wide and therefore suitable for all levels of skiers or boarder with 5 free lifts for beginners.

How to get there: Tignes can be accessed easily throughout the year via various forms of transport. The alps are primarily served by five airports; Lyon, Grenoble, Geneva Chambéry and Turin all of which have regular flights from the UK and Ireland. Carriers to these destinations include, Easyjet, Aer Lingus, Ryanair, Flybe, bmibaby, Thompson Fly and British Airways.

Bourg St-Maurice train station is the nearest station to Tignes. This is served at all times of the year by French mainline services. Eurostar also runs a service known as the 'Snow Train' at weekends throughout the winter season that is direct from London.

Road access to the Tarentaise region is remarkably good thanks to the 1992 Albertville Olympic games, especially from Chambéry and Lyon. Transfers from these Airports can be made entirely on motorways as far as Moûtiers (36 miles from Tignes) and then on roads that have been widened to accommodate the hundreds of buses that use them throughout the year.

Travel Tip: We suggest that given the transfer time from the airport to the resort you book an early flight when arriving and a late flight when departing. For convenience we recommend that you hire a car.

Great little appartment

  • 5 of 5

Booked predominantly for a mountain biking holiday but got plenty done besides thanks to the owner, David, obtaining Tignes Sports cards which allow free access to canoes, kayaks, archery, shooting, swimming pool and gym.

Summer lifts are also still free at Tignes as are the buses.

Apartment ideally placed with very local parking.

The apartment is in good order and is ideal for 4 to spread out a bit or 6 to be cosy.

Great holiday.

My boyfriend and I had a lovely week in this apartment. The location is great and it is a lovely place to chill out after a day on the slopes - great kitchen and nice to be able to cosy up in front on the tv with the British channels. If I go back to Tignes Val Claret, I would stay again :)

Gorgeous and Spacious Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Making use of the great value for money the apartment was advertising for the first week of the season, we grabbed the opportunity and a group of five of us stayed for a week. The booking process was very easy and Dave was so very helpful in taking us through and detailing the process from booking to arrival. We especially loved the fact that he took the time to call us before our trip to explain the apartment and other details over the phone. It made for a very comfortable and stress-free trip especially as, with his directions, the apartment was very easy to find!

The apartment itself is nothing short of gorgeous and modern. As has previously been said in reviews, the photos do not do the space justice and we were pleasantly surprised with the amount of room it gave. Two of us were in the mezzanine bedroom, one in the bunkbed room and two on the fold out sofa in the sitting room and as a result, we each received our own room. We could’ve easily fitted another two people on fold out beds in the mezzanine and bunk bed rooms. In the mornings we folded up the double in the sitting room leaving us plenty social space to relax after skiing in front of the TV with plenty of channels. The apartment is cosy especially with the thick duvets and heats up fast drying out towels and any damp ski gear easily. The shower is pressurised and lovely after a day’s skiing and the bathroom well lit and spacious. The kitchen is also much more equipped than we’ve seen in other apartments with a coffee machine and plenty of utensils making dinners easy! Another great detail is a key locker secured on the front door. This meant that once the apartment was locked and the key left in this locker, it wasn't necessary to try and meet up with whoever had the key once we were out skiing if we wanted to return to the apartment early.

Lovely and clean, with plenty of storage space (and we had a lot of gear!) and a ski locker downstairs that fit three snowboards and a set of skis, we were very happy with how our week turned out. We will definitely be coming back this year now that we’ve found this gem! Thanks again, Dave and Vikki!

Tignes shares the world famous L'Espace Killy ski area with its neighbour Val D'Isere but does not charge the same prices making it very attractive to families or those on a budget. The ski resort Tignes comprises 5 Villages; Val Claret (the highest), Tignes le Lac, Le Lavachet, Tignes Les Boisses and Tignes-les-Brévières. Val Claret is a modern resort with varied and plentiful amenities. These include a professional childcare, cinema, supermarket, ski shops, ski hire, ski/snowboarding schools, medical centre, pharmacy, spa, ample car parking, ATM's, great apre ski, nightclubs, and a wonderful mix of restaurants to cater for all tastes and ages. Once you reach the resort travelling within it is very easy as there is a very efficient system of buses known as the “Navette”. This frequent service runs free of charge from Tignes Les Boisse, down by the dam to Tignes Le Lac every 30 mins and from Le Lac via Le Lavachet to Val Claret (hourly).

Ski: We have a deal for our guests for ski hire equipment which gives all our guests up to 30% off ski hire when you book the apartment.
