We also have a flat close to the Funival in Val d'Isere to sleep 7, Property Number 9854.

All apartments are very close to the lifts, including high speed underground railways. Hameau du Borsat is ski in / ski out, while the Chalet Club flats are connected to the Funicular and Col de Fresse high speed chair linking with Val d'Isere by a short rope tow.

About Chris Rotsey

I've been skiing every year since 1973 and absolutely love it. I know the Val d'Isère and Tignes ski area really well and can offer helpful advice to our clients.

Chris Rotsey purchased this apartment in 1988

Why Chris Rotsey chose Tignes

I bought this property because of the great location and fantastic views from the balcony. It is rented out to pay the mortgage and, because we use it a lot ourselves, it is maintained to a high standard.

Hammeau du Borsat. Great apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment in a wonderful location. Right on the edge of the slopes so wonderful views up the mountain. We were there in the summer and it's an easy walk to all parts of Val claret and to the shuttle bus. Nice flat with comfy beds. Lovely big balcony. Highly recommend.

Good location

  • 4 of 5

It would appear that the majority of apartments in the area are small. Our apartment was compact, but it was very well equipped, well laid out, comfortable and clean. It was situated at the far end of Tignes Val Claret, so it was lovely and peaceful with a pleasant view. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony every evening. The owner provided excellent customer service throughout our dealings with him. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone.

The area of Tignes is a fantastic place to spend a summer holiday. The scenery is spectacular. We went there for the hiking and bought an excellent pack of 25 walks, each with their own leaflet, from the Tourist office. It is a designated bike park with endless tracks to choose from. Around Tignes there are so many activities for all the family eg a huge water slide, tennis, beach volleyball, canoeing and crazy golf, to name a few. You can walk to the funicular and cable car up to the glacier on Grand Motte, where there is skiing and snowboarding, even in July. We only ate out one evening, but the food at the Pignatta Italian restaurant was superb.

Owner's Response: Many people do not realise the full extent of things to do in the summer. We are able to provide the Sportignes cards - http://www.tignes.net/fr/sports-en-ete/carte-sportignes-850.html and http://www.tignes.net/11330 - free of charge. These give taster sessions for a wide range of activities.

Fantastic value Ski in Ski out Tignes Property.

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic location giving direct access to the main lifts in Val Claret (including the free ones) and easy access to Val d’isere providing plenty of terrain options. Lovely balcony, functional kitchen and dining area, great shower with plenty of hot water. Ski lockers are a convenient bonus (at the end of the day) as is the lift system within the residence. Great reasonably priced bakery opposite the residence and ski rental places within a stones throw (ideal for beginners). Affordable ski in ski out self catering property, would definitely rent again.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment in Hameau du Borsat, Tignes Val Claret over the Easter week and had a great holiday. Chris was very helpful and gave some good recommendations. The location is great, right on the slope so you can ski right back. Val Claret is a great village with good bars and restaurants and a better than average supermarket. The apartment was great, compact but all of these apartments are, we had everything we needed and the kitchen had all of the things you need to self cater. We had a great week, good snow, excellent skiing and would definitely return.

From the Owner

I bought this property because of the great location and fantastic views from the balcony. It is rented out to pay the mortgage and, because we use it a lot ourselves, it is maintained to a high standard.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Geneva, Lyons, Chambery or Grenoble at 80 Miles Nearest Barpub : at 75 Metres Nearest Ferry : Calais at 630 Miles Nearest Golf : at 400 Metres Nearest Train : Bourg-Saint-Maurice at 20 Miles Nearest Motorway : Albertville at 50 Miles Nearest Restaurant : at 75 Metres Nearest Ski : at 100 Metres Car: not necessary

Our flats are in Val Claret, the highest point of Tignes at 2,200m . There is easy access to Val d'Isere's skiing from Val Claret by either of two high speed 6-person chair lifts. The Grande Motte glacier can be reached by the underground 'Funiculaire' and offers excellent summer and autumn skiing.

WiFi is being installed for the winter of 2014-15 and is available for a small supplement. It includes access to the four UK iPlayers.

Ski: Val d'Isere and Tignes share what is probably one of the top five ski areas in Europe with a fantastic range of 200+ runs for everyone from beginner to expert serviced by 120 lifts. There is now a good choice of ski schools and this competition has certainly raised standards.

Tignes is the summer skiing capital of Europe but there are many other activities here and at Val d'Isere including golf, tennis, mountain biking, fishing, white water rafting, sailing, etc. Val d'Isere and Tignes are on the edge of the Vanoise National Park and only 40 miles from the Little St Bernard pass into Italy which makes a great day out.
