Val Claret is the highest of all the villages.Tignes was a farming communities that also profited through smuggling from nearby Italy.In 1952 a dam was built in Tignes and this meant that the village would be completely buried beneath the newly created Lac Du Chevril. It has been rumoured that locals tried for years to disrupt building works using resistance-style tactics.The dam was supposed to provide 10% of France's electricity. Ironically however, France soon joined the nuclear age and the power was never used. Interestingly, the lake is drained every 10 years, and you can walk among the remains of the drowned village. The lake was last drained in the spring of 2000. The lake is now used to charge up a storage battery as a backup if ever the ski resort should suffer a power cut. The dam has become a landmark for Tignes and now has a huge figure of Hercules painted on its walls, known as the Giant of Tignes.Government contributions meant that Tignes could re-invent itself as a ski resort. In April 1967, the developer Pierre Schnebelen and the Savoie Department were able to use funds originally intended for a 55,000 m2 development at Lavachet, to develop fully the resort at Tignes. The building of Residence Bollin was actually home to Pierre Schnebelen, he occupied the top floor penthouse. Obviously taking the best view for himself!!The close proximity with Val d'Isere, has enabled these two snow sure world-renowned resorts to team together creating the Espace-Killy skiing range named after Jean-Claude Killy, the famous French skier, who won three gold medals in the 1968 Olympics in Grenoble.You can ski over 300km of terrain, serviced by 96 lifts with a carrying capacity of 149,425 persons an hour, from the villages of Le Fornet and Val d'Isere to Le Daille and Tignes.The Espace-Killy has a history of hosting the most prestigious events. The 1992 Albertville Olympics saw a number of events being held in the Espace-Killy range. Tignes hosted the freestyle skiing with Val d'Isere hosting the prestigious Giant Slalom, Super G and downhill events. Tignes continually strives to improve itself. In 2006, the new leisure center Le Lagon in Tignes Le Lac opened. It's a short walk or free bus ride from Val Claret.

“Perfect location”

Reviewed 21 Feb 2015

We had a great week here in January skiing in Tignes and the linked resort of Val d'isere. The apartment is modern and clean with a large balcony and mountain views. There is a living/ dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom and separate toilet. There is a ski locker at the apartment's main entrance and a heated ski boot rack in the apartment itself. The apartment is ski-in ski-out or you can walk a short distance to the ski school chairlift. It is an easy level walk to most restaurants in Val Claret and there is a covered walkway and lift to the nearby supermarket. We felt welcome on arrival with a key locker available and a note from the caretaker. Can't wait to go back!

“Great location.”

Reviewed 14 Feb 2013

Had a week in Residence Bollin 21 and it's location is second to none - ski in, ski out, no stairs or lift to negotiate, ski locker in entrance and a secure apartment. The apartment itself could be improved with the addition of a few items, namely, better bedside lighting in both rooms & some means of sweeping up the numerous crumbs from the french bread. The addition of the boot heaters in the hallway was much appreciated. We too had no satellite TV during the week we were there, so I would strongly suggest taking along a few DVD's to watch if you just want to chill out in the evening.

Hi, many thanks for your comments. All gratefully received. Happy to report that UK TV channels are now working again - bit of a nightmare getting that sorted to be honest. Hope to welcome you back soon. Thanks Mark

“Great value and excellent location”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2012

We decided to book this apartment following a search on the internet and the details were well suited to our needs. It is in an excellent location with direct access to the main lift via a short ski of 100 meters or you could walk which takes no more than 5 minutes on level ground. The furnishings were as described and there was more than enough storage space. It is one of the few places we have stayed in where you do not constantly fall over your cases!! The kitchen is compact [only one person can be in it at a time] but has every thing you need. Unfortunately the sky tv was not working while we were there but the free wireless internet kept our teenagers happy in the evening.
