SKI CHALET STYLE APARTMENT, 2 BED, SLEEPS 6, SELF CATERING IN VAL CLARET, TIGNES

Tignes Val Claret Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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 Apartment

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 17, 2012
  • Stayed: Feb 2012
This is a great apartment with more space than you can see in the photos. There is a very well equipped kitchen with all the utensils you could possibly think of. We took our own 'chalet maid' which meant we made good use of the kitchen and even managed two roast dinners. We were even able to watch our own local news on the satelite TV! The free bus was very useful for going to the next village. The ski locker was big enough for 4 sets of skis.

We were impressed with the apartment and all dealings with the owner was prompt and helpful. Our only downside was the amount of travelling we had to do as we decided to drive, next time we would definately fly! We did speak to Elaine when we were at Albertville and she said that we would take another hour and a half we we laughed at this as the mileage didn't seem that far , however she was right and a hour and a half was what it took.

We would definately recommend this apartment. Thanks for having us!

Well equiped, spacious apartment in a great location.
Very comfortable and more than enough space for the 5 of us. Quiet block which made it great for a good nights sleep. Wonderful views of one of the pistes and we would definately stay again, the week was too short and wanted to stay much longer!

Beautiful apartment, well-equipped and central

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 13, 2011
  • Stayed: Apr 2011
We stayed here in April 2011. We would highly recommend it.

We booked this apartment on the basis of the reviews rather than the photographs. We were right to do so. The photographs make the lounge look narrow - which it is not. The whole apartment is much more spacious, light and airy than the photos do it credit. We have stayed in other french apartments, so knew what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised!

Dave (one of the owners) could not have been more helpful with the booking process, also sending us information about the underground/overground car park (Parking Du Golf, directly opposite) and cheerfully answering all our queries. There is temporary parking outside the apartment to off-load.

The reviews we read talked about the cleanliness and vast amount of kitchen equipment and we would agree. We have never seen so many utensils, cooking pots, glasses and crockery. So much so, that we had a hard time putting away all the food we bought for the week in Bourg! There was also ample bedding, pillows and towels and a bin in the bathroom (so I guess reviewer comments from Feb 2011 were taken on board!)

Two things worth noting:

(1) there is no WIFI, but if you go and sit outside on the apartment steps, you can log on to tignesnet.com which gives you free wifi access from the tourist information office opposite. During the day you can go inside the office with your lap top, where they have charge points, low tables and comfy chairs.

(2) The top bunk is unsuitable for little children as the ladder is steep and slippy with no hand rail (wouldn't recommend for under 8s). We used the double futon bed in the second bedroom for our littles as a compromise, so you could easily sleep 6 in this apartment if you had a range of ages.

For those who like to watch DVDs after a long day on the slopes, the sofas were veerrrry comfortable.

Good security. Front door pin code access. Ski locker on the ground floor was excellent and secure (free). Lift was great as apartment is on the top floor. We heard no noise from anyone else all week. Mainly french residents.

Great views. Lovely balcony. Could just about ski within 500 metres of the apartment by going along a track towards the Golf parking off the blue run back to the village.

If we go back to Tignes, we would use this apartment again and have recommended it to friends and collegues.

Owner's Response: Ski B,

Many thanks for your feedback and constructive comments, they are very much appreciated. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in the apartment and look forward to your return sometime in the near future.

Will upgrade those photo's, might be an excuse for a working visit! and thanks for your views on the top bunk bed. I'm not sure we can fix the ladder but will advise future guests that it's not suitable for under 8's.

With kind regards,

Dave & Lisa

Very quiet and comfortable with incredible views!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 22, 2011
  • Stayed: Feb 2011
We stayed here in Feb 2011 - 2 adults and 2 children.

We found the owners to be very helpful and easy to contact during the booking process and they provided lots of information about the resort (parking, ski hire etc). Our e-mails were always answered quickly, and questions answered. When we arrived at the resort we were met by Elaine who is English (so no communication issues) who welcomed us to the apartment and explained how everything worked etc. Elaine was very friendly and easy to contact by text and came to the apartment just before we left to return the deposit.

The apartment is in a great position. At the end of Val Claret, more or less next to the tourist information (which seemed to have free wifi if you don't want to use the bars/restaurants - there are several close by). Not only is it on the top floor meaning there is no noise from above - it was very quiet) but it is also on the end, which gives the fab views on three sides!

The apartment is very comfortable and well equipped like others have said (especially the kitchen) although (the only slight negative I can think of to be honest) I personally would have preferred there to be more towels. 4 large good quality towels were provided for the 4 of us for a week, and although they did dry very quickly on the heated towel rail, I think it would have been nicer to also have some hand towels. A bin in the bathroom would also have been useful.

Other than these two very minor things, the apartment had everything that we needed, was nice and clean and felt very homely. Lots of hooks for coats etc, and hanging space in the bunk room.

It may be worth mentioning that the ladder to the top bunk is pretty steep/high to climb - and may be an issue if you have really small children? It was ok for us until both children broke their wrists snowboarding! However, we can say that the mountain rescue team and clinic in Tignes were great (although expensive, so glad we had insurance . . .)!

The ski locker is on the ground floor near the main entrance, and both the entrance and the locker room is opened by code, and your individual locker by key. So very convenient and secure. We fitted in ski's and poles (x2) and 2 snowboards.

In summary, a lovely clean apartment that was much better equipped and more spacious than others we have booked at a similar price. We would happily use it again if we returned to Tignes, and would recommend it to friends and family.

Thank you!

Enjoyed our stay and would return

We stayed at the apartment for the first week in January and really enjoyed our stay. We were a party of 5 with two small children and there was plenty of room for all of us. The apartment is in a good location and we managed to ski back most of the way back to the front door.
The beds were very comfortable and it was nice to come back and cook in the apartment as there was everything you could possible need in the kitchen.
The owners were very helpful and provided lots of useful information before we travelled. Would deffinetely return and recommend.

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.
