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.
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.
Nous avons passé une super semaine dans ce chalet en duplex, très confortable. Le pain est livré tout les matins, l'accueil était très agréable, et l'équipe très serviable.
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.
Très bel appartement dans chalet, au bord des pistes, parking couvert pour 2 voitures parfait , ascenseur, juste que l'on pensait avoir le SPA à disposition (d'après le descriptif) et l'on avait choisi cette location vraiment pour ça... Dommage! Accueil agréable et très serviable. L'année prochaine on y retourne avec grand plaisir après avoir négocier le SPA :-)
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.
