About Chris Rotsey
I've been skiing every year since 1973 and absolutely love it. I know the Val d'Isère and Tignes ski area really well and can offer helpful advice to our clients.
Chris Rotsey purchased this Apartment in 1988
Why Chris Rotsey chose Val Claret
I bought this property because of the great location and fantastic views from the balcony. It is rented out to pay the mortgage and, because we use it a lot ourselves, it is maintained to a high standard.

Small flat, good location, Tignes parking is tourist unfriendly
Practical but very small flat. Some lightbulbs needed changing, otherwise fine.
Upon arrival, the parking guards did not even allow to unload our luggage close to the flat, we had to park about 1km from the flat and carry everything over, very disappointing and tourist unfriendly!
The flat is a little tight for 4 people, but that is reflected in the price. (Lieven has previously stayed in one of our larger flats without complaint.)
I have not previously heard of any problems with short term parking to empty the car. Parking Tignes advertises that clients can stay free of charge for two hours in Parking Grande Motte to empty and re-load the car. If access to Parking Grande Motte was denied, there is a service road running alongside which can also be used for a drop-off.
property was small but clean and fully functional. Perfect for my stay
We are delighted to hear that Judith enjoyed her stay. Every year about a third of our bookings come from people who have previously stayed with us. We hope to welcome Judith and her family back at some point. in the future.
Great location and value
Great apartment with all that you need for a weeks sking. Good value, good shower.
Praktisch eingerichtet, klein, direkt an Piste
Sehr netter Kontakt zum Besitzer.
Das Appartement ist klein (in den französischen Bettenburgen gibt es jedoch noch viel kleinere), aber gut ausgestattet und praktisch eingerichtet. Prima für vier Personen, die Ausstattung lässt auch sechs Gäste zu, davon würde ich jedoch abraten. Relativ großer Balkon, den wir jedoch wegen viel Wind und Schnee nicht nutzen konnten. Der Skischrank reicht für vier paar Ski. Schuhe muss man in der Wohnung unterbringen.
Größtes Plus ist die Lage direkt an der Piste.
Great location, cosy, well equipped flat, close to lifts, ski hire,shops etc. Perfect for 3 of us.
A lovely, clean & well equipped flat with everything you would
Great apartment, we’ll be back!
Lovely little apartment, conveniently located in Val Claret. Small, compact and cosy, perfect for a week skiing - we love the ski area! The apartment was as described, has everything you need, it’s nice and warm, clean, and has a really good shower. Convenient location close to lots of restaurants and cafes and easy to get the bus to other areas. Lifts are a short walk from the apartment. Chris the owner was really helpful and easily contactable (not based in resort) the welcome folder had lots of useful apartment and resort information. We would absolutely book again and have already recommended to friends.
We are really pleased that Jess so much enjoyed her stay. We try hard to ensure people have the information they need, and that they enjoy themselves. Every year, over a third of our bookings are from people who have previously stayed with us and we look forward to welcoming Jess in the future.
Our flats are in Val Claret, the highest point of Tignes at 2,200m . There is easy access to Val d'Isere's skiing from Val Claret by either of two high speed 6-person chair lifts. The Grande Motte glacier can be reached by the underground 'Funiculaire' and offers excellent summer and autumn skiing.
WiFi is available for a small supplement. It includes access to the four UK iPlayers.
Ski: Val d'Isere and Tignes share what is probably one of the top five ski areas in Europe with a fantastic range of 200+ runs for everyone from beginner to expert serviced by 120 lifts. There is now a good choice of ski schools and this competition has certainly raised standards.
Tignes is the summer skiing capital of Europe but there are many other activities here and at Val d'Isere including golf, tennis, mountain biking, fishing, white water rafting, sailing, etc. Val d'Isere and Tignes are on the edge of the Vanoise National Park and only 40 miles from the Little St Bernard pass into Italy which makes a great day out.
