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.

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.

Apartment was lovely, clean & spacious.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Spacious and good living area

  • 5 of 5

A group of 5 of us stayed here for a weeks skiing in March 2017.

The owners sent us lots of useful information through to us prior to the trip including how to access the property, directions to get there, good restaurants to go to etc. which turned out to be one of the most well organised experiences I’ve had booking through this site. A great thing about this property was that there is a key safe on the door so no waiting round for someone to give you the keys. It also meant that we could leave the keys there so if some of our party went home early they could get in and there was no messing around with who has the key.

As you walk in there is a big and spacious shower room first on your right with a good shower and towels supplied.

The bedrooms were next along in the flat, one either side of the corridor. There was one with a mezzanine and double bed on top and quite a comfy double sofa bed underneath. On the other side of the corridor next to the shower room was the single bunk room. The beds are ok but they are sprung underneath the mattress and personally I would recommend these for small adults or children as there’s a wooden support bar underneath which you could feel through the mattress. Despite the small size of the room it was spacious enough and had lots of storage next to and underneath the beds.

The living area was great. Really spacious with a high sloped ceiling and a big sofa which you could easily fit 6 on. There was a small balcony with views up the Espace Killy side of the resort. The kitchen was one of the best equipped I’ve been to for holiday rentals. It has a proper oven, and hob, slim line dishwasher (with more than the usual 2 dishwasher tablets that you usually get), lots of pans and crockery. The drop leaf table and folding chairs meant that you could just pack it all down easily to give you more living space.

One thing to note is that there’s no wifi. The owners make this clear in the description and we could get 3G there but the connection wasn’t great. There are quite a few free wifi spots around Val Claret though.

The apartment is very near to all the shops and restaurants and its only a short walk to the Tufs lift that gets you access to some excellent skiing.

All in all it was a great apartment that really suited our needs and I would recommend it if you’re wanting to book somewhere with plenty of space and to self cater.

Great little appartment

  • 5 of 5

Booked predominantly for a mountain biking holiday but got plenty done besides thanks to the owner, David, obtaining Tignes Sports cards which allow free access to canoes, kayaks, archery, shooting, swimming pool and gym.

Summer lifts are also still free at Tignes as are the buses.

Apartment ideally placed with very local parking.

The apartment is in good order and is ideal for 4 to spread out a bit or 6 to be cosy.

Great holiday.
