Sport und Abenteuer
This apartment is great - compact (ish) but perfectly designed. We were 2 adults and 2 children (8 and 11). Kids slept in bunks in hall which we could close off from lounge. Fantastic location - 50 yd walk to put your skis on and ski to the nearest lifts. Coming home you could ski right back to the apt door. Also very close to supermarket, bars, ski rental etc - on the doorstep. Had a lovely meal in Le Brassero (just ask for kids portions). Back to apartment - oven is small but very efficient and managed a roast chicken, baked potatoes and garlic bread for 4!! All utensils you need provided. No coffee machine but a cafetiere. Great TV and DVD player. Lots of clothes/bag storage. Glorious view from balcony. Would definitely recommend and would return to this apartment. Tignes is a great ski. NB. Park in public Lavachet car park if you have a 4 by 4, MPV or roof box (or both like us!!) - the entrance to the apartment parking garage seemed a bit low. Public car park is 50yds - opposite where you can put your skis on in the morning. We loved this place. Clem is very helpful. Only negative point (not about apartment) is that with the exchange rate as it is everything is ridiculously expensive e.g. can of drink 5 euros, pizza 16 euros, pint of lager 7 euros, ski passes.... etc etc. Some mountain places cheaper than others so check them out. Hope this helps anyone!
Itrs great to read about a client's experience in one's own apartments - basically agreeing with all that we feel is good about our location in Tignes. A note on the exchange rate is that you can reduce the impact - buy your food in Bourg St Maurice its much cheaper than in resort - eat in selected restaurants with good value for money (lists in the apartments) - avoid on mountain drinks - they have always been expensive! Bring your euros with you - exchange rate through cash machines is very poor. Clem
Tigneslove is the right name
Great apartment, very clean and well equiped. Owners are on hand and really care about their clients, the personal touch makes all the difference. The location is quiet, but not remote, spectacular views, ski in and ski out if you cross the road. Le Brassero was difficult to ski past though, you might even get to hear Pete play the bongos! The beer and food are great too. We went paragliding which was fun and worth a try. Tignes is a fantastic place to ski, we went to every corner of Tignes and Val d'Isere both on and off piste and would recommend the resort as a destination for all abilities. I have no hesitation in recommending you to stay in Clem and Pete's apartments, you won't go wrong if you do.
Very well equipped and comfortable apartment close to slopes
The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. ...so nice to have good knives, scissors, tongs and decent sized mugs! The bed was very comfortable. Having 2 sofas in the living room was great for chilling in the evening. We probably took too much food with us as there was a very good supermarket and boulangerie within 50m so next time would just buy what we needed through the week. In fact everything you might need is within a very short walk..food, bars, ski pass, ski hire and the ski slopes. You really can ski back to the accommodation door.
The only problem we had with the apartment was the shower which was powerful but at times unpredictable in it's temperature.
Thanks for your kind review.... it’s always good to hear from our guests. Glad to hear there will be a next time! Sorry about the shower..... the hot water is communal throughout the building and is being replaced this summer as it cannot cope at nearly 50 years old!! Hopefully that will provide better continuity of hot water.
Fab little apartment with great access to skiing.
Lovely little flat equipped with everything you need for your skiing holiday. Nicely furnished and finished, great communication from owners answering any questions we had. Fab skiing in the area, easily accessible from the flat.
Modern well furnished appartement, good location.
The furnish of the appartement is new, the sleep cough is small, the bunk is short for long people above 190cm
The location of the appartement is very good only 50meters walking to start skiing, we were able to ski back to the appartement . Ski area is great.
Thanks for the comments... I think you mean the sofa bed is small, it is 140 x 190 which is a standard double size in France. 190cms is the standard length for a bed in France. We made the double bed in the bedroom 200 cms to help taller people. The apartment is very well situated as a ski in and ski out location.
Fantastic, fully refurbished large apartment.
Clem was very helpful when I booked our stay in Tignes and it was lovely to be greeted by her and Pete when we arrived. The apartment was amazing with everything that we needed. A brand new bathroom and kitchen with a dishwasher, large fridge, small oven and hob. As a family of four it was large enough and there was a good sized double bedroom. There is free wi-fi which is very fast, we were pleased to have Netflix as there was no English TV. The area of La Lachevet is close to the slopes, you can ski back to the door and the ski bus takes you free of charge to the main ski area in Tignes, or you can walk 50 metres and ski down to the lifts, which is what we did after a lunch break. The buses come every 10 minutes all day and until late at night, it is a very short walk from the apartment to the bus stop. Next door there is a bakery and fully stocked supermarket. The local bar is English and had a long happy hour for cheap apres ski. We have stayed in Tignes in the summer before and it has an amazing range of activities from downhill mountain biking, lake fun and miles of paths to walk. We would recommend the accommodation and the area to anyone.
Private under-cover parking in the adjacent garage is available at a cost of £65 week. Covered parking is mandatory in Tignes and the garage is just outside the apartment building and £15 cheaper then Tignes car parks. A linen pack includes sheets, pillowcases bath and hand towel can be rented for £15.00 pp. Apartments need to be left cleaned in same condition as they were on arrival.
