The village of Les Brevieres is about 5 minutes walk from the chalet where there are bars and restaurants. Live music twice a week at Vincents, and various events at other bars. There is something every night at Les Chardons.
The balcony overlooks the ski slopes and the lake it is only 150 meters from the chalet to the lift at the end of the road. A short walk from the chalet there is a free car park.
It is a two to two and a half hour bus or car journey from Chambery Airport to the apartment. Whereas from Geneva or Lyon Airport it takes from three hours to the apartment depending on traffic..
Tthe ski train runs from London, St Pancras all the way to Bourg St. Maurice, which is 25 minutes approximately from Les Brevieres. Please ask if you require transport from the airport.
The Rhone/French Alps region
Due to its altitude Tignes has a very reliable snow record which, after recent seasons of reduced snowfall, has encouraged people to choose higher mountain resorts. According to 'The good Ski & Snowboarding Guide 2005' Tignes/Val d'Isere is one of only two ski areas in France listed as 'Snow-sure resorts'.
Tignes boasts a fast & efficient lift system 97 lifts including 2 high speed underground trains (funicular railways) one of which transports you from Tignes Val Claret to the 'Panoramic Restaurant' on the Grand Motte Glacier. All standards are catered for with '5 free lifts for beginners'
Les Brevieres is I believe the prettiest village in this area. It is situated approximately halfway between Tignes and Val D'Isere. From les Brevieres one can take the gondola lift up to the Grand Motte.There is also a chair lift, and there is a free drag lift in the village, which we find really useful for beginners, saving them the need to pay for a ski pass, if not for all the week, at least part of it. Just 50 meters from the chalet is the ski lift, so not far too walk.
There are so many runs and different areas to ski here, you really are spoiled for choice, whether you are a beginner or advanced, if you like skiing you'll never get bored here. We love it and I'm sure you will too.
If you want to try something new, ice diving, dog sledding, hang gliding, skidoo riding, ice climbing, parascending, ski-joring (being pulled along by horses) , skating, snowshoeing, indoor tennis, heliskiing are all options. In Tignes Le Lac there is a beautiful recently constructed swimmin pool, bowling and a market twice weekly
L'Espace Killy is known for its incredible off-piste with good lift access. Also there is a half pipe, boardercross course, some great freeriding & the 1992 Olympics downhill course should you be feeling up for it.
