Tignes Val Claret Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Tignes ski chalet style ski apartment . 3 bedroom sleeps 6-8.

These luxurious ski chalet style apartments are 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 restaurant, the swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi, steam rooms and a Gym. Use of these facilities is not included in the price of the apartment

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.

About Louise Stephen

We moved to France in 2003 and started a family with two children born in the Pyrenees, close to the Spanish Border. We all love skiing and live 45 minutes from a small resort in SW France. We speak French, so we can usually organise anything needed and deal with the unexpected .

Louise Stephen purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Louise Stephen chose Tignes Val Claret

We bought this property off-plan before it was built. The reasoning was that the builders (MGM), specialised in high quality buildings using traditional wood and stone, cladding a high-tech frame, fitted out and furnished to a high specification.

Tignes was chosen for its huge ski area, and high altitude, giving it a sure snow record and longer season.

What makes this apartment unique

Its hard to find 4 star accommodation, with easy access to the slopes, shops, yet away from the main revelers routes, adjacent to a restaurant and pool/spa complex. We have found the perfect apartment, and we manage to rent it at a 20% discount to the rest of the apartments in the same building.

SUMMER DETAILS:-

We provide a free Sport Tignes card, for all summer bookings in July and August, this card enables 8 people to have free access to 22 different summer sports and activities. Also the ski lifts are free for summer users.

Sports include:

- Acroland (from 12 years old) : Water jump, Hot jumping, Blob Jump

- Archery (from 6 years old)

- Beach soccer

- Beach volley

- Football practice area

2 bedroom

  • 5 of 5
Very nice, comfortable and immaculately clean apartment. Worked as a charm for a family of 4 grown-ups. Space for more but then probably a bit cramped. Easy access to Val Claret center, comfortable ski-lockers with direct exit through the garage to the ski bus (even though it is quite near by foot to the slope if you wish). Description correct.
Parking, linen, towels and end-cleaning included.
Only down-side (described and we were well aware of it) the lack of a view from the balcony which is on the ground-floor facing a slope. .
The owner, Guus, very helpful.

Perfect apartment for family ski holiday

  • 5 of 5
Lovely apartment, perfect for my family. I travelled with my 3 children for glacier skiing in October. We had stayed in the block before so knew that it is an excellent location to access the funicular to glacier though lots of other lifts would be easily accessible if there was snow down to resort level as will be the case later in the season. The apartment was clean and comfortable and the listing description was accurate. There were renovation works going on in the building at the time, which the owner had informed of us prior to the stay. The owner was very prompt to reply to my queries. I would recommend the apartment to a friend or relative with the caveat that I think it is well suited for a family with children but would be small for 6 adults travelling together.

We have a separate apartment in the same building that has 3 bedrooms, and sleeps 6 in comfort, which would be more suitable for 6 adults and is also available on Home and Away.

Great ski apartment

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was perfect for our late season ski holiday. It comfortably sleeps family of 4/5. Guus was really helpful and his advice and directions were spot on. We arrived late at night and everything was exactly as he said it would be and we had no problems with anything in the apartment.
The position is really good, Val Claret being the best postioned village of all the Tignes resorts. The bus stop right outside the door opens up the whole resort to do whatever you want. Skiing access is on the doorstep.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Guus's apartment, we would go back if he could arrange the weather a bit better !

Owner's Response: Thanks, we think the apartment is perfectly placed, and we also think Val Claret is the best Tignes Village.
Yes, the weather is hard to organise, and as Tignes has such a long season and such a good snow record, some guests do get more snow than others. If it is snowy, the run down to Les Breviers for lunch is great as its through the trees and gives very good contrast.
Pampering in the spa is also a good bet if the weather is poor, as is the main large swimming pool In Le Lac.
On snowy days we have in the past retired for lunch in a restaurant, with a pack of cards in the jacket pocket, after a snowy ski.
After lunch, we stayed in there and played cards, drunk Brandy and Calavodos and ate crepes all afternoon. Its not quite as good as a great sunny day on crisp powder, but it it comes a close second!

Nice ski apartment

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is nice and new and there was plenty of space for the 4 of us.It is on the ground floor at the back of the building, but the path outside has no traffic because it is reserved for emergency services. This meant the apartment was nice and quiet, although there was no view to speak of and only a little sun mid morning. There was also a big ski locker with plenty of room for our kit.We have stayed in a number of Pierre et Vacances properties through the owners before and had always had the same rights as the other visitors, so it was a shame that we had to pay extra for the pool( 8 euro per person per visit) and that reception were not interested in looking after us in any way. We did use the pool most days and it was otherwise very good.
Guus was very helpful before the holiday, phoning to check we had everything and if there had been problems I felt confident he would have helped to sort them out.He also warned us the garage had a height restriction and we packed the roofbox carefully so we could take it off outside when we arrived (high car plus roofbox). He promptly refunded the deposit and has been very good at communicating throughout.
Tignes is an amazing ski area and the apartment gave us good access to the slopes and lifts as well as the apres ski of Val Claret. We did not feel the need to catch the free bus.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the peace and quiet.
There is a reception for P&V guests, however, this apartment is not leased to P&V, so any questions need to be directed to Guus, or his local representative, who are more than happy to help.
P&V have changed their conditions this year, and all owners of apartments are now charged for using the pool, sorry, there is nothing we can do about this!

The larger Pool at Tignes le lac is available for free use if you buy an Espace Killy ski pass, hop on the bus, and hop off right next to the pool, with water slides etc etc.

Thanks for confirming that the location is great, I have got so lazy over the years, that I always take the bus, and sometimes I forget to mention how close to everything the apartment is!

As you mention the ski area is the second biggest in all of Europe, and being the second highest European resort means that the snow record is second to none. If you hire a guide, some of the off piste runs are incredible. I have a list of guides who can be contacted directly if required.

A decent stay for up to 4 persons

  • 4 of 5
The apartment was as expected. A great location near the lifts, and a clean varm apartment.
We were 6 big men living toghether, and the apartment was a bit to small for that in the long run. Mostly because two of us shared the sleepingcouch in the livingroom. I recommend this apartment if you're 4 or less traveling together.
The owner, Guus, was honest, accessable and helpful with everything we needed.
We went there to ski and for that purpose, the apartment worked fine. The Val Claret restaurants were a bit expensive, even for spoiled norwegians. If the apartment had had an oven, it would be easier to cook inhouse.
Overall, we had a great stay. I will summarize in a quick pros/cons-list:

+the location of the apartment
+apartment was clean and fresh
+apartment was practical regarding skis, car, activities
+peaceful location
+comfy beds in good bedrooms
+clean and modern shower/toilet
-a bit small for 6 persons
-no oven in the kitchen
-expensive restaurants in the village

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, yes the 2 bedroom apartment can be a bit cramped for 6 people. We also have a three bedroom apartment, which would be better for 6 people. ( We can accommodate 8 people here), but again it gets a bit cramped with 8 people.
The three bedroom apartment has a higher cost, so its a question of cost V comfort. 6 people in comfort = three bedroom. 6 people cheaper = two bedroom apartment.

Both apartments have the same oven. It is a combination oven, microwave and grill. However it can be complicated to understand. I will make sure we put up clearer laminated instructions for next year.

We cant do much about the price of restaurants, we did find a great takeaway in Le lac, that does Curries and Malaysian food, and they even deliver!!

2 Bedroom Apartment: 1 en-suite.

  • 5 of 5
Accurately described and very comfortable, well equipped, immaculately clean apartment in good location with helpful, friendly reception staff. Unusually spacious, convenient underground parking and a short walk, 3 mins via the elevator, to the Val Claret centre. We used the very frequent ski-bus to cover the 100 metres to and from the lift area and it was never a problem. Seating for 8 comfortably at the kitchen table and the spa and pool facilities were very good.

Alistair hugely helpful throughout and overall highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review,I am really pleased you liked the apartment.
It is difficult to explain in words how easy it is to get to the ski area, next season I hope to have some 360 degree videos online to expalin this more clearly.
