Overview

Tignes Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Tignes ski chalet style ski apartment .

WE CAN ACCEPT CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS FOR THE 3 BEDROOM MEZZANINE APPARTMENT ONLY ( 2.5 % reduction in price when paid by bank transfer).

We have 3 apartments available in this residence ( L'ecrin des neiges). There are two 3 bedroom apartments ( sleep 6-8), one is a mezzanine apartment on 2 levels and one is on a single level . The 3 apartment is a 2 bedroom apartment ( sleeps 4-6).

Photos are labelled 3 bedroom- mezzanine, 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom single level.

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

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

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. 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

- Multisports practice area

- Tennis (Sport Beach and Lavachet area)

- Air rifle shooting (adult card only)

- Table Football

- Basket ball

- Beach soccer

- Beach volley

- Crazy Airbag (from 8 years old)

Comfortable roomy and warm ski apartment Would happily stay there again

  • 5 of 5

Arranging our stay with Louise was easy with all our questions answered quickly, and the car park in the building itself was a big bonus. More space than many apartments we have stayed in and just a passenger lift and 3-4 mins from the centre of the village for evening drinks and meals and about 50 yards only to carry skis to get to the slopes.

Get the ski pass for both Tignes and Val d'Isere.

For our departure Louise recommended that we leave Tignes by 8.00am to avoid the traffic hold ups. We took her advice but then stopped in Albertville for about an hour for breakfast and the traditional visit to Intersport - probably a mistake because we then hit a very heavy traffic jam around Chambery nearly 80 miles from Tignes which took us an hour to get through, which we would probably avoided had we held out for breakfast until after Chambery.

All in all a perfect location and appartment - and don't leave Tignes without spending some happy hours in the Grizzly Bar in the village which is an absolute must.

Great ski appartment

  • 5 of 5

There were six adults staying in this 3 bedroom apartment and it was exactly what we wanted. Conveniently located but quiet, ample kitchen equipment, plenty of hot water and generally comfortable beds, although I would say that perhaps the twin bedroom upstairs is more suitable for children or shorter adults due to the sloping ceiling. The free shuttle stops right outside the property or there is a tow rope across the road, this means that you can be on the slopes very quickly. All in all an excellent property.

Great apartment, great location, great owner.

  • 5 of 5

As a group of five we stayed here in Feb 2016. The apartment is in a perfect spot, a quick walk from the main lifts in Val Claret and very close to all the shops, bars and restaurants you'll need. Louise (owner) was extremely helpful prior to arrival and ensured we had all the necessary info to minimise fuss and delay when we arrived, allowing us to get to the slopes ASAP. Our slightly early check-in was a big help. The apartment had plenty of space, was clean and had all the mod cons we needed.

Super place - fantastic trip. Thank you!

Excellent February half term ski holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had our 5th excellent week in this wonderfully well-appointed apartment in Tignes Val Claret. Everything works really well for our family (2 adults, 2 children who are 5 and 8) with the apartment location, set-up, facilities, parking, comfort, proximity to slopes, ski school, shops, restaurants etc. Alastair and Louise gave us clear pre-arrival information and even sent us an email on our journey out there to give us a travel/weather update which was really thoughtful. We had a great week of snow and fun in the mountains and a great deal of that is down to our excellent accommodation. Thanks again - please book us in for next year ! x

Superb apartment in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with our choice of accommodation in Tignes this year!

Fantastically well maintained apartment with everything you could possibly need for your stay. Clean and tidy on arrival with everything listed in the description - we didn't want for anything. Easily fit all 7 of us in.

Really useful welcome back emailed a few days before arrival by the owner and welcomed to the apartment by a lovely lady also. Perfect location to get to the slopes, bars, restaurants and ski hire shops nearby.

Thank you very much for having us and we would definitely recommend!

Great stay in Val Claret

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in Louise's lovely apartment in Val Claret. The apartment had everything we needed and is in a fantastic location just a short walk from the ski lifts. This, combined with some great snow, meant we had a brilliant time. Thanks Louise!

Val Claret, Tignes

Located close to the centre of Val Claret village in the resort of Tignes, our ski apartment offers the perfect setting for exploring the Espace Killy ski area. The ski apartment itself sits close to the bottom of the Grande Motte funicular lift up to the glacier at 3500m, making it a perfect setting for winter sport activities including skiing snowboarding and snowshoeing. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the vast piste areas of Tignes and Val D'Isere and even bigger off piste areas. The other villages of Tignes: Le Lac, Le Lavrechet, les Boisses and Les Breviers are within easy reach either on skis, or using the free Tignes bus service

The ski apartments has been finished to a high standard in a ski chalet style, the two bedroom apartment on one floor, the three bedroom apartment over two floors.
