Located in the heart of Tignes Val Claret, these welcoming apartments are the perfect base for your ski holiday. The warm décor and perfect location provide you with a home away from home for your week in the mountains.

Ski-in, ski-out

The apartments are located in the high altitude resort of Tignes, located in the ski area of Espace Tignes -Val d'Isere, which has exceptional snow coverage throughout the whole season. With the piste located right on your doorstep, you'll be able to make first lifts with ease. The ski lifts and ski school meeting areas are located opposite the building, just a couple of minutes away, so you can pop your skis on at the door and head out straight after breakfast.

Spa facilities

During your stay, you'll have access to some fantastic spa facilities in the Spa O des Cimes located in Le Nevada and Le Telemark buildings. These are only a short walk from the apartments, so you'll be able to take a moment to relax once you've returned from a long day on the slopes. Make the most of the indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, hot tub and steam room available - or if you'd really like to treat yourself, why not book in and have a massage or beauty treatment.

Spacious alpine apartments

The residence is split across two traditional chalet buildings. Each apartment is finished to a high standard and creates the perfect alpine feel. Ideal for family and small groups of friends, each apartments offers spacious communal areas and cosy bedrooms.

Tignes is famous for it's record amounts of snowfall, making it the best place for skiers and snowboarders to carve up the slopes. The area has three main villages: Val Claret, Le Lac and Le Lavachet, which are linked together by a 24 hour free bus service. Val Claret is 2,100 metres high and has a superb position right at the foot of the Grande Motte funicular. Le Lac and Le Lavachet have a more cosy village feel to them and also offer easy access to the slopes and over to Val d’Isère. The villages have a great selection of shops, bars and restaurants and have a lively, friendly, buzz about them. We also have accommodation in Tignes 1850 and Tignes Les Brevieres, which are quieter villages with easy access to the slopes.

Skiing and snowboarding in Tignes

There's a great mix of slopes in Tignes, making it a great place for families and groups of different levels. There's plenty of wide and long runs, through trees and on glaciers. One of the best runs has to be from the top of Grand Motte glacier and down the red into Tignes Val Claret village. 

Where to stay in Tignes

We offer accommodation in all of the main villages in Tignes, with Le Lac and Val Claret being the most popular. From the majority of the hotels and apartments you can reach the slopes within a few minutes, making it extremely easy to get onto this world-renowned ski area. 

Bars and restaurants in Tignes

Tignes is a lively area with plenty of restaurant and après options, from live bands and happy hours in 'Loop Bar' to delicious local Savoyade fondues in 'Coeur des Neiges'. Tignes Val Claret has the famous 'Cocorico' apres bar and pizzeria, then 'La Folie Douce' is up in the mountains. There's alot of restaurants dotted around the ski area for that well deserved mid-morning hot chocolate and then a lunch break.

Travel By Air

Flights to Chambery or Geneva from 13 UK airports.

Transfer Times

  • Chambery airport: approx. 2 hours 30 mins by coach
  • Geneva airport: approx. 4 hours by coach 

There is a traffic light system for the Tarentaise Valley. This system controls and slows down the traffic, stopping traffic sitting in dangerous places, like tunnels, where rocks can fall and to make snow clearing easier when it is snowing. This can impact your transfer time, meaning you may arrive into resort later and be leaving for the airport earlier. 

Transfers may be longer during bad weather conditions or French school holidays. French school holidays span 21 Dec 24 - 06 Jan 25, 08 Feb - 10 Mar 25 and 05 Apr - 05 May 25.

The transfer in Tignes will stop as chose as possible to your chosen accommodation and in some cases there may be a 5 minutes' walk due to the location of the property not being accessible by coach.
