Why Mrs Clemency Upton chose Le Lavachet
Le Lavachet is a village of Tignes 2100 right in the heart of the ski area. The apartments are in a large modern apartment building with good access to the pistes (50 metre walk to the path to ski down to the lifts) and then ski back to the front door.
What makes this Apartment unique
We chose Tignes because it has a superb snow record and the longest season in the French Alps starting from November and finishing in the middle of May. It has the Grande Motte glacier at 3250 metres which allows skiing at all times even if the snow cover is low in other resorts.

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.
Great apartment - big enough for our family of four. Clem provided lots of useful information.
Local facilities were good and the suggested ski hire shop excellent: quality gear and friendly staff.
Tignes is fantastic. The buses are easy into the centre or it is possible to ski down to the lavachet lifts.
Home Club Apartment
This is a very nice, well appointed, clean apartment in a lovely village, and Clem is really helpful. It is ideally located- you can ski back to the front door and the bus stops right outside to take you to Tignes Le Lac or Val Clarat (It's not far anyhow and we walked most of the time). The skiing is fantastic with loads of places to go on the Espace Killy pass. Lavachet is great too with a good grocers where you can get everything, top bakers, and loads of bars, all with really friendly people and about 100 yards from the front door. We had a great time and will be back.
Situated at 2100 metres in the main area of Tignes, our village of Le Lavachet is by far the best! It has its own shops and restaurants and is easy to ski back to. There are 2 x 6 seater chairs to whisk you up to the slopes which you can ski down to and they never have any queues! Our village is the quieter area of Tignes and well suited for families.
Golf: The golf in summer is on the Par 68 5000 yard course situated on the meadowed slopes of Tignes. Situated at 2100 metres it is the highest golf course in Europe. The experience of playing golf at this height is amazing as the balls fly for forever due to the thinner air. The wildlife of wild goats and marmots also provide a difference from the local golf course, but best of all are the natural hazards.
Ski: * Tignes ( 2100 metres) is situated close to Val d'Isere and
has a glacier which offers excellent snow conditions all
through the long season from early December right through to
* There are many red and blue runs ideal for intermediate skiers
whilst some of the best off-piste and black runs can be found
here in Tignes.
