Tignes has long been my favorite resort in the French Alps, I mean I did a season there so I guess I'm a little biased but with a top elevation of nearly 3,500m and over 2km of vertical drop over the resort, what's not to love!!
The Borsat apartments are in a great spot on the side of the final runs into Val Claret and it is even possible to ride/ski right up to the front door. You're also about a 2 minute walk from the Tuffs lift which accesses Val d'Isere and Tignes le Lac as well as being able to ride/ski from the back of the building down to the main lift area of Val Claret from where you can access pretty much the entire resort.
The apartment itself was clean, bright and very well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Although the apartment can accommodate 6, we only had 4 in our party and there was no problem with space at all. 4 adults and 2 kids would be very do-able although 6 adults could be a squeeze. At the end of the day though, you don't go to a ski resort to lounge around the apartment. Having said that though, we did give ourselves a day off and hang out in the apartment and it was a very nice place to spend some time.
A great all around experience for sure and I'll definitely be coming back to both Tignes AND one of the apartments owned by Chris as the whole experience from booking right through to the time spent in the property was excellent.
