Skiing in Tignes
Our accomodation (Chalet Belvedere, Homewood apartment) was quite good. The apartment was very nice and comfortable, the equipment very good, the only problem were TV and radio not working and may be some more light in the apartment would be welcome. Even the cleaning is improvable. The location is very good for skiiers because of the lift connecting the hill of the residence to the main street, very close to the ticket office. Tignes les brevieres is a very little village, there is only one little supermarket, prices are extremely high (for instance 1 single kiwi= 1 euro, 1 kg of beef meat minimum 49, maximum 59 euro), just to know....Skiing in Tignes and Val d'Isere (easily connected) is very expensive but even very amazing....
Our best ski trip experience yet
We were very impressed with Chalet Kirkwood. Its location was at the top of the hill above the village which gave stunning views of the resort and mountains. There is a small bubble lift down the hill to the village itself which made getting to and from the ski area easy... but it shuts at 6.30pm so we had to walk up the hill after dinner in the evening - not a big issue, even though we had young children in our group.
The resort itself is wonderfully quiet - none of the crowds you find in the better-known resorts (and we were there at half term) and ESF offers ski lessons on site. The village supermarket is disappointing and barely offered enough to cook a full meal in the chalet. This was the only detractor from our week away.
The chalet itself was clean and comfortable and the terrace was fantastic for sunny afternoons. The bread and pastry delivery from Harvey was a great extra service. Highly recommended.
No sound insulation, too much space used by owner
The apartment is spacious and comfortable, but not luxurious, and well away from the village noise. The undercover car parking is easy to access and the caretaker, Harvey, will deliver bread and croissants every morning, at reasonable prices. Noise from the adjacent apartment was intrusive in the living area, we could overhear even normal conversations, but not noticeable in the bedrooms. We were irritated by the amount of storage space taken up by the owner's clobber and by the number of locked "private" cupboards in the kitchen. We couldn't even use the ski locker.
The location is good. From the apartment it's about 100 metres or so to the free funicular and from there another 100 metres to the gondola. Les Brevieres is a small pleasant village, very quiet for a ski resort, but the only food store is surprisingly small with only very basic stuff.
We stayed in Chalet Homewood for the half term week along with our two sons - aged 21 and 20 and one of their mates. The layout of the chalet was perfect with the boys all upstairs and my wife and having the privacy of the downstairs double bedroom. Location of the chalet was good - though it is a bit of pull from the village on an evening after a good meal and few drinks!!! Lauren the Chalet rep was very helpful, the fresh bread every morning great and the ski lift up and down from the village a great benefit. I would have no hesitation in recommending this to friends and colleagues. The skiing in Tignes was fantastic and look forward to returning.
Thank you for your very positive review. We're really pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again in the future.
Nice apartment in a good location.
The apartment is very nice. We were 7 and it did not feel too small. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the location is great. There is a little bit of a walk up the hill if you arrive by train/bus as some of us did so be prepared for that.
We had no problems at all once we were settled in and the village is well-equipped with restaurants and bars and a decent (if small) supermarket. You won't get your Apple iphone/ipod/ipad to play music through the tv and there's no hifi, so bring your own speakers if this is important to you. Otherwise the entertainment in the apartment is good - dvd player, big TV with many channels including BBC and wifi that worked without issues all week (as did the lift up from the pistes).
Tignes les Brev is excellent spot for skiing/boarding - there's quite a few nice runs, two free lifts for beginners and some fun off-piste including between the trees. It's two short lifts up to Tignes itself which has amazing terrain as does Val D'Isere beyond.
Nice apartment, but not luxurious
There apartment is nice, but I wouldn't call it luxurious and there were a number of issues while we were there.
No internet access for 3 days, despite constant complaining to the building staff
Lift to the village out of order (hadn't worked the previous week either)
Deposit demanded in cash (sorted out with a phone call to the owner)
Car parking fee demanded (sorted out with a phone call to the building manager)
Jacuzzi and pool (20ftx20ft) were cool at best
Jacuzzi not working for two days
If driving and it has snowed you will need snow chains or a 4x4 to get up the hill, it can be very tricky as it was when we arrived.
Sky box and dish in place but unable to get a signal of any kind
Pool/sauna/jacuzzi opening times mean it is usually crowded, why only open at 16:00?
Nice large balcony, but it was under 2/3 feet of snow and we had no way to clear it, other apartments had their's cleared by the building staff.
The main waste bin in the kitchen had no lid and got smelly if you didn't remove the bag after any food waste went into it.
The cupboards were absolutely empty, completely cleaned out. So if you need salt, pepper, cleaning products, etc you will need to take them with you. Most apartments we have stayed in have at least a few basics like salt & pepper.
Overall we had a good trip. However the apartment did not live up to its write up, if you want to be billed as 'high quality' you need to fix all the niggling things (including the horrible cow skin rug which is rolled over at the edges and great at tripping you up!)
If you haven't been to the Espace Killy area before you should be aware that Les Breviere is not a good place for anyone less than an 'intermediate' skier. 90% of the skiing is over the hill in Tignes (Lavachet, La Lac & Claret) and Val D'Isere, to get there you need to negotiate some tricky blue and/or red pistes.
Nov 2013 update: We are handling all of the on the ground services ourselves from December 2013 so we will be able to ensure that our usual high standards of cleanliness and customer service are maintained. The pool will not be operational for this winter season.
Hi Gary. We're sorry that you were not entirely happy with your stay at our apartment. Unfortunately, most of these issues are out of our control and we were not made aware of them during your stay. The internet connection, pool management, snow clearing etc. are the responsibility of the building managers and we have made them aware of the problems you experienced so that they don't happen again. The Sky box was simply not correctly plugged in to the TV so was easily solved. The cleaning company used at the Residence are instructed to clear everything from the kitchen each week so if we leave basics like salt & pepper etc. they simply get cleared out after the first week of the season. We had not been told that the lid for the kitchen bin was missing so we could replace it. Once again, our apologies that the holiday didn't live up to your expectations and thank you for bringing the issues to our attention so that we can address those which are within our control.
Le Belvedere is nestled on the side of the mountain at 1550 metres altitude, 500m from the village centre of Tignes Les Brevieres in the Tarentaise valley in the French Alps. You can ski or take the lift down to the main bubble lift from a point about 100m from the Belvedere main building, and there is a lift back up to the same point. Access to the chaelt from the main building is on foot, so it's not suitable for young children or older people. We are ideally placed for winter ski holidays at Tignes and the linked resort of Val d'Isere, as well as Sainte Foy Tarentaise, Les Arcs and La Rosiere. We are a comfortable 10-hour drive from the Channel. If you prefer to fly, Geneva and Lyon airports are 3 hours away, Grenoble 2½ hours and Chambery 2 hours. All airports are served by one of the low cost airlines as well as the national carriers. Eurostar runs direct services from Waterloo or Ashford to Bourg St Maurice during the winter. Other Activities: Dog sledding, white water sports, canyoning, paragliding, mountain biking, hiking, ice skating. Golf: There is a challenging 18 hole golf course at Tignes Le Lac as well as a 9-hole pitch and putt, and a driving range. You'll be amazed how much further the ball travels at 2000m altitude! And don't miss the hole with more vertical drop than horizontal distance! Ski: The properties are located at Tignes Les Brevieres which is linked into the Espace Killy. This is one of the largest ski areas in the world, offering 300kms of ski runs to suit skiers and snowboarders of all levels. You can take the lift or ski down to the main bubble lift from a point just 100m from the Belvedere, and take the lift back up to the same point at the end of the day.
