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.

Lovely apartment in Val Claret, so spacious and nicely done out. Close to the ski lifts, shops, bakery and restaurants. Really great stay, thanks :)
E, many thanks for booking our apartment and appreciate the feedback. Delighted that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back sometime in the near future. Kind regards Lisa & Dave
Great property . close to the shops and ski lifts
Great property . close to the shops and ski lifts. Good kitchen and lounge.We booked for 3 people
However the single bunk beds are very thin, too high and the bottom bunk is only stable for a lightweight infant. In our case my 21 year old found it impossible to sleep because of the Spring base under the mattress was too weak. this could be easily replaced with a solid wood base.
We had to use the sofa as a bed for the other person.
Nice stay in Val Claret
The apartment was lovely, with a spacious living room and a kitchen equipped with everything you will ever need to prepare meals. Improvements could be made, though. The mattresses on the bunk beds really need to be firmer and thicker, the shower was really hard to operate and set a normal temperature, and the sliding doors need a bit of maintenance as they tend to unhinge often.
All in all, we had a great time and will be looking for this accomodation the next time we're in Tignes.
All feedback is greatly appreciated. We will attend to all the points raised and now that the season is over have them rectified in the coming weeks. Many thanks for staying in our apartment and we do hope you will return. Kind regards Dave & Lisa
Spacious ski chalet
The chalet is very spacious & was a perfect size for a family of four adults. It is located a few minutes walk from the supermarket & 5 mins from the ski lifts. The ski locker is a great feature, as is the key safe located outside the apartment.
The owners, Lisa & David, were very helpful & quick to reply to messages & questions.
During our visit there was a huge amount of snowfall & this meant the TV satellite signal didn't work so there was no TV. This however was not a fault of the chalet or the owners, more an occupational hazard of too much snow!
The only disappointment was the lack of WiFi which we had been assured would be installed before our visit. However, it was possible to connect to the free Tignes network in the building next door.
All in all this is a well appointed & spacious apartment & I would have no hesitation in recommending it.
Very pleasant apartment neat and clean thank u for a great holiday
Apartment was lovely, clean & spacious.
On arrival we did have difficulty with the locks on the door been a bit sticky but once inside we found the apartment to be very nice. The only other difficulty we had was the balcony door was a bit sticky which was a bit precarious at the top of the steps which didn't have a rail or guard.
Location is great, the apartment is spacious, clean and attractively decorated.
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.
