Our second summer stay in Tignes - can’t recommend it highly enough for families. So much to do and with the MyTignes Card pretty much all the activities are free! Swimming at the pool, pedal boats, kayaks and SUP’s on the lake, trampolines for the little ones and loads more. Chairlifts and cable cars are running and free also so amazing for a lift up and a hike back down.
The 2 bed apartment was well set up and in the mountain style you would expect. Great view from the balcony too. Fairly well worn and I suppose slightly showing it’s age and year round use. Kitchen was compact but functional for us as a family who like to cook. The only negative for the apartment really was that the sofa was something of an implement of torture- not the most comfortable!
Other negatives if I had to find them were the parking situation (paid the €30 for the covered parking but it was so awkward and tight to get in and out that we gave up after the first night, got a refund and parked on the street). Similarly, as a place used by scores of mountain bikers, there’s nowhere for them to put their bikes a la a ski room in the winter. Consequently all the bikes are brought into the accommodation in the evening, taken up in the lifts and stored in balconies. Not ideal. The solution would be to block out the small inaccessible parking and bring in a load of bike racks for the summer.
Don’t want to sound too negative, overall it was a great stay.
10/10 for Tignes, 8/10 for the Montana.
