Le Belvedere is a recently-built luxury residence close to the slopes at Tignes Les Brevieres which combines the charm of a traditional Alpine village with fast lift access into the Espace Killy, one of the largest ski areas in Europe (Val d'Isere & Tignes). The properties have a very high quality of furnishings and equipment throughout with plenty of storage space. There's very efficient electric heating and plenty of hot water. Each property has a flat-screen TV, DVD player, iPod docking station and FREE internet connection. Please note that the properties are strictly NON-SMOKING and pets are not accepted.
The skiing: Tignes les Brevieres combines the charm of an Alpine village with a high speed link to the famous Espace Killy, one of the largest ski areas in Europe. This enormous area - 96 lifts, 137 ski runs totalling 300kms spread over 10,000 hectares - offers superb skiing for all ability levels. Tignes Les Brevieres is located in the North-East part of the Espace Killy. Sunny from the early morning, you benefit from the views of the Grande Sassière (3748m), the Chevril lake and the Mont Blanc peak as you ride. Its highest peak is Aiguille Percee (2748m), forming a peculiar geologic shape through which you can take a great picture of Tignes le Lac. The village has it's own ESF ski school and nursery slppe with a free lift for beginners. Intermediates will enjoy the long sweeping red and blue runs that return to the village, whilst the more advanced will be challenged by the infamous black Sache piste and off-piste terrain.
The village: There are a number of bars and restaurants in the village offering everything from haute-cuisine to pizza. There are also a couple of discos and a sports bar with UK TV for those all-important un-missable sporting events! The supermarket has everything you need for self-catering and there are several sports shops for equipment and general browsing.
Voici un petit feed back
Le chalet est très bien.
Localisation très bonne.
Agencement très très bien
Chauffage très bien
Accueil et support, service très bien
Décoration intérieure parfaite (sauf rideau de douche chambre du haut)
Pour progresser voici toutefois quelques remarques :
Pas de verre à dent dans les salles de bains ...
Voisins bruyant en fin de séjour .... qui montre un petit défaut d'insonorisation
Literie trop souple.
Pour le "self catering "
- Pas assez de torchons (1 seul)
- pas d'aspirateur ni de balais
Pas de votre faute mais 3 soirs avec panne longue de l'ascenseur des Brevieres = beaucoup de dépenses d'énergie - prévoir navette ou quad de secour ?
Voilà, nous avons passé un joyeux Noël dans votre chalet - merci !

This review is entitled as it is because it summarises in 2 words what this chalet is. High, it is the highest one in Les Brev but don't let that put you off. Organise your life so you don't need to carry all your equipment back to the chalet at the end of a hard day on the piste and use the lift in the village, the last few metres walk will be a breeze! Mighty, the accommodation is very comfortable, uk tv and the hot tub a luxury, but the distinguishing feature is the welcome and the food provided by Ant, Jess and Lucy. I have done a few chalets in my life and safe to say this is one of the best I have been in. Yes the wine is cheap, but so what? If you care about that then buy a better one if you like. What matters is being well fed, and I was a happy customer. The only wee thing is that if the chalet was filled to capacity (12), I suggest that would be little bit cramped if all were big blokes like me!!
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.
