Beautiful apartment, well-equipped and central
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
