About Tina and Andy Gunningham

Andy and I have owned this apartment for over 20 years.

With our two children we have been coming to Tignes for our holidays during the Winter and Summer for as long as I can remember.

We manage our bookings from our home in Bristol.

Tina and Andy Gunningham purchased this apartment in 1992

Why Tina and Andy Gunningham chose Tignes

We have just installed wi-fi new 2016 and this is available as an extra cost - £15 or 20 Euros. Please advise if required.

Taxe de sejour is included in the price.

As we said we stay ourselves several times a year so it is maintained to a good standard.

What makes this apartment unique

Tignes is a high altitude resort with a great coverage of ski runs, including a Glacier which is open in the Summer as well as in the Winter. The Espace Killy area covers you not only to ski in Tignes but the Val D'isere area too.

Great appartment, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at this apartment in the first week of February 2013 for our ski holiday in Tignes.

The apartment was very cosy and we all felt very at home in it. We were four in total, and had plenty of room for all of us, both in the bedrooms and lounge area.

We truly felt like we were at home, as the apartment comes with all the necessities that you would have back home.

The location was ideal as it was literally a 2 minute walk to the bakery in the morning for fresh croissants and same distance to the ski lifts and to the free shuttle bus that goes to Le Lac and other parts of Tignes.

I sincerely highly recommend this apartment, as do the other 3 people who came with me. Great for families or a group of friends.
