Good with minor flaws.
Had to unblock shower drain full of hair; dishwasher left too many dishes dirty, toilet handle falls off and traps unwary user. Otherwise a splendid apartment, roomy and well equipped; 5 minute walk to lifts.
Wonderful apartment in Val Claret
A group of 4 of us stayed in Gary's apartment, and had an absolutely fantastic time. Helped along by amazing ski conditions, Gary's apartment was the perfect base camp for long days on the slopes, equipt with everything we needed. Comfortable in size for the 4 of us (I think would have been a tight squeeze with any more), with a very clean & modern bathroom and great shower facilities. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in Val Claret, and would definitely look at returning in the future!
Thanks for your positive review Camilla, the snow has been bonkers this season, would love to have you back next year, regards, Gary
Wonderful spacious modern apartment - perfect for families and or friends. Great equiped kitchen and super comfortable beds and linen. English TV - a plus plus. No downside to this apartment at all. We will definitely stay there again. Check in and host excellent - highly recommended.
Thanks for your really great review Tracy, hope to see you again next year. Regards, Gary
Great location, and beautiful views from this apartment. Some sharp knives would have been beneficial and toilet roll on arrival would be more convenient for those who arrive after the sherpa closes.
There is no way to escape the streetlight in the main bedroom which is beyond the control of the owner but definitely prevents a good night's sleep if you like a dark room.
With the exception of the knives the kitchen is extremely well equipped and great for cooking in. The lounge area is extremely comfortable and spacious, wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Hello Phillip, thanks for your positive review. I will ask my manager to get the knives sharpened. I'm surprised you had an issue with light from outside as the apartment has black out curtains to all the windows. Hopefully see you next season. Regards, Gary
Everything you need for a great holiday, close to ski lifts and bars and restaurants. The apartment is bright and clean with a well appointed kitchen area, comfy beds and a great shower, what else can you ask for?
Hi Robert, thanks for your review, I'm really pleased you enjoyed the apartment and no doubt the abundant snow helped. Hope to see you again next year. Best wishes, Gary
A well located flat with valley and mountain views.
Wonderful views! The apartment was very clean, well furnished and generally well equipped. We enjoyed our stay, the flat suited us very well, especially as our family live on floor 6. There were a few things, however, which would have improved our visit. The bedding was inadequate on cold nights. (We remedied this by using one of the duvets from the bunk beds.) A sharp knife would have helped, as would a hand towel in the kitchen and a little more loo roll to get us started.
Thanks for a great holiday.
Val Claret is the highest of the villages making up Tignes with arguably the best access to the ski lifts and many would argue the best night life/shops /restaurants. This very compact village has everything a serious skier would want and offers restaurants for every taste and budget. If you are travelling with children Val Claret has 2 kids ski schools and plenty of kiddy friendly restaurants. In summer Val Claret is handily placed to the golf course/lake/tennis courts/indoor leisure centre and is right beside the funicular railway for the summer skiers and mountain bike riders. A Sherpa supermarket is situated in the village centre for all your self catering needs. Most of our guests travel by car. Whilst you cannot park on the street in Tignes, the multi storey car park is only 100 metres away at a cost of 75 euros for one week. If you opt for coach/mini bus/private transfer then you can get dropped off very close to the front door. The ski train from London terminates at Bourg St Maurice and taxis are readily available to take you up to resort level. The apartment is only 100 metres from shops, 200 metres from bars/restaurants and 300/400 metres from the ski lift network. We are close enough to be handy to everything but far enough away when the bars really start to get swinging. A free bus service runs every 15 minutes connecting Val Claret with Le Lac and all its facilities including the excellent indoor family watersports centre.
