My daughter and I stayed at Chalet Tournavel in February 2017. It is located between La Lac and Val Claret and is a 10 minute walk to Val Claret where the nearest lift is. There is a free shuttle bus that stops right outside the chalet.
The chalet is warm and welcoming. The hosts, Paul and Lorraine are keen skiers and are full of advice and information on the best places to ski in the area. The food was brilliant every night. I would recommend the chalet and am planning to return there this ski season.

The chalet is perfectly located with a bus stop just outside so you don’t have to do anymore than fall out of the front door and onto a bus which come every 5 mins and you are at the lifts in Val Claret in 5 mins. Or if you cross the road you can get the bus in the opposite direction to Lac.
The chalet is well cared for and immaculately clean. The chalet hosts, Paul and Lorraine, have been running chalets for years and have been in this chalet for a number of seasons and have very high standards. They hit a perfect balance of being friendly and helpful (with all the advice on the resort that you need) and welcoming at the same time as letting you get on with your holiday. The food is fabulous with the option for separate and simpler mealtimes for younger children.
The bedrooms are all ensuite and very comfortable. The communal areas have plenty of comfy seating for everyone to hang out and rest weary limbs. There is a tv, dvd and plenty of WiFi. Decor is cosy and simple with a contemporary feel. There is also a sauna for relaxing tired muscles.
We love Tignes as the skiing and snow are so reliable. This chalet works well for us and our 3 children in their teens. It worked just as well for our friends with their children who were primary school age as ski school is easy to access and coming back down to drop off/collect children from ski school is easy to build into a days skiing due to the lift network. The great thing in Tignes is that there is no main lift up the mountain so we have never queued. There are a host of lifts leaving from the resorts on different sides of the valley so that you can follow the best weather.
We will definitely be going back to Tignes and this chalet and have no hesitation in recommending it.
Spent a fantastic week at Chalet Tournavel. Met upon our arrival by the lovely Paul and Lorraine who proved to be the most knowledgeable, experienced and helpful chalet reps you could ever wish for – not to mention their excellent cooking! From the word go we had our ski passes organised and ski hire kit delivered so we were ready to go straight from the chalet without any delays or hold up. The bus stop outside took us immediately to the ski lifts which opened up to a world of ski heaven in the high altitude resort of Tignes. At the end of the day we had a similarly easy 1 stop bus ride back to a well located chalet which, while sitting in its own quiet detached position, provided easy access to all the local après ski activities as well as the lure of its comfy lounge and open fire.
What more can we say than perfect chalet, perfect location, perfect hosts and perfect ski holiday.
