Why go Self Catering?
Self catered apartments work well for private groups of friends and family who can share the cooking or would like to eat out more. All properties come fully equipped for self catering and are completely independent units with simple cooking and entertainment facilities.
After a hard day of pitting your brain and your limbs against the mountain, the idea of cooking a family or group meal may not good for everyone, however it is a great way to save money.
The self-drive holiday option is one which lends itself to self catering apartments as the week’s shopping can be taken with you. The only local shopping need be for fresh items such as milk, bread and vegetables.
One of the largest ski areas in Europe and linked to neighbouring Val d’Isère, Tignes has earned itself 'Super Resort' status. Famous for its high altitude skiing and a snow record most other resorts can only dream of, Tignes coolly and comfortably rivals the world’s best ski and board destinations for downhill and off piste
The slopes in Tignes are characteristically wide, long lasting and highly efficient. All in all, this allows for some effortless skiing for all abilities, less slope congestion and not so much waiting in lift queues! The slopes are immaculately kept and link very well with neighbouring Val D’Isere to offer a superb variety of steeper descents and networks of easier runs for the progressive intermediates to cover some mileage.
