Chalets du Belvédère are ideally placed for winter ski holidays and summer activity holidays in Tignes and the linked resort of Val d’Isère. Le Belvédère is nestled on the side of the mountain at 1550 metres altitude just above Les Brévières village.
Access to Powder Ridge and Snow Ridge chalets is by elevator from the main building that houses the apartments, garage parking, ski lockers and boot room, and then steps making it less suitable for those with reduced mobility, very young children or the elderly.
The main building is 100m from the bubble lift that gives access to the main lifts & slopes and the village shops, bars & restaurants.
Le Belvédère is 500m via the road on foot or by car from the village centre of Tignes Les Brévières.
Travel & Transfers
We are a steady 10 hours drive from the channel ports.
Tip: avoid the worst of the traffic by arriving in the mountains early morning or late afternoon, as the traffic is heaviest during the middle of the day.
Tip: do NOT take a route which crosses one of the mountain passes (cols) as they are all closed from November to May each year. Many sat-nav systems direct you over the Col du Petit St Bernard, so take care to avoid that route.
Our nearest railway station is Bourg St Maurice, which is served by a direct Eurostar service in winter. In winter and summer you can take the regular Eurostar service to Paris or Lille and change to a French railways train. Details from Rail Europe or SNCF.
Tip: note that the Eurostar trains do not have sleeping berths so for overnight journeys you may prefer to change to a French sleeper train at Paris or Lille.
Our nearest airports are:
• Chambery – about 1½ hours drive
• Grenoble – about 2 hours drive
• Geneva – about 2½ hours drive
• Lyon – about 2½ hours drive away
• St Etienne – about 3½ drive.
These are all served by the national carriers and/or one or more of the low cost airlines. Skyscanner is a useful site for finding flights from your nearest airport.
Tip: to avoid the worst of the traffic on busy weeks aim for flights which arrive early morning or late afternoon.
Private transfers: With pre booking we can collect you from the airport or rail station in one of our minibuses. Ask for details.
Tip: check the times of the coaches before booking your flight to avoid lengthy waits at the airport.
You can rent a car from any of the major operators. We have arranged discounted rates with Rhino Car Hire, simply quote ‘Chalets-Belvedere’ and get up to 10% discount.
• Check your airline website as they often offer discounted car rental.
• Do book a snow pack and ski rack
• Book from the Swiss side at Geneva – although a little more expensive than the French side most of the cars have snow tyres and come with a Swiss motorway toll sticker which makes getting to and from the airport faster and easier.
• Do NOT take the Mont Blanc tunnel from Geneva in winter as the Col du Petit St Bernard is closed from November to May every year.
An expensive option but a little cheaper when pre-booked. Try Altitude Espace.
We strongly recommend that you have full travel and winter sports insurance cover. You can choose from a range of suitable policies from Fogg Travel insurance.
Their site is clear and easy to use, and you can arrange your insurance instantly with a credit or debit card.
You can also take insurance with your lift pass that covers you for evacuation from the mountain in case of accident, together with various other elements. Details can be found at Carre Neige Insurance.
