Our fantastic south facing apartment in the Ecrin des Neiges accommodation offers 3 bedroom luxury accommodation facing the slopes for up to 8 people. Now booking for 2018-19 ski season so if you want to actually ski rather than watch the grass grow next season head to Tignes! Our apartment is at 2100m - higher than the altitude of most resort top ski lift!
Located in Val Claret, L'Ecrin des Neiges is one of the most popular apartment complexes in Tignes due to its location at the slope level. It is superbly positioned within 3 minutes walk or 1 minute free bus ride (bus-stop outside the complex) from 6 major ski lifts in Val Claret with quick access to Tignes 2100/Le Lac. The apartment is on the first floor with a large balcony facing south toward the Tichot slopes with 6 chairs and a table. There is an excellent restaurant (La Table de Jeanne) in the complex and many more just a minute or two walk away.
The spacious (68 m²) apartment has three double bedrooms (one with en suite shower room) and a well-equipped open-plan kitchen/dining/living area with an extremely comfortable double sofa-bed. There is a further bathroom (with bath) and a separate toilet. All linen, towels and bath robes (in the master suite) are included.
The living area has a large double sofa and we provide 3 relaxing chairs plus stools and coffee table.
There is both WiFi (free of charge) and a direct phone line in the apartment. There is a LCD TV with International TV but the view from the balcony over the slopes at sunset is a better watch! There is a large cupboard for all the ski clothes.
There is a heated boot-room with lockable personal locker for all the ski-gear including pegs for 8 pairs of boots. There are laundry facilities by the boot-room.
A space in the underground car-park can be booked at reception or we can arrange this for you at a cost of around €80 for the week and there is a lift up from the car park to within metres of the apartment. Or there is an outdoor car park nearby (about €75 for 7 nights).
The reception is staffed during the winter and summer seasons and they can arrange bread and croissants in the morning. They are very helpful and can supply extra linen, washing supplies and even a fondue set, as a guest discovered (see reviews).
The apartment is within a few minutes walk from lots of shops and restaurants.
We accept credit card bookings direct on this website. We also accept PayPal and payment by bank transfer in sterling and euros.
The warmer temperatures throughout the French Alps in 2013-14 led to many resorts closing runs, but Tignes was hardly affected and 2014-15 was excellent from November to May. The 2016 season had over a metre of base right through to the middle of April and in 2017 was one of the few resorts to have any snow before February. In 2018 Tignes had over 3 metres of base snow and powder almost every week. Due to it's altitude (2100m in the Cal Claret) Tignes really is a snow-sure location.
Summer weeks are available throughout July and August with a huge range of special events - mostly free - being held in Tignes. It is a great base for exploring the mountains.
It's also a great location for a summer vacation with all the events hosted by Tignes. Bikes can be kept safely in a locked room overnight and the list of sports is extensive, including some unique to Tignes. In the summer we offer our clients "My Tignes Open" (formerly SportTignes) passes which gives free access to many of the sporting activities throughout Tignes including use of the lagoon pool in Tignes Le Lac.
