Had a fantastic week in Tignes with Alpine Elements with a friend and my son. The chalet staff were excellent with the whole chalet being kept very clean at all times. The food was amazing and far exceeded our expectations! A food allergy in our party was catered for brilliantly (too well if I'm honest...made him feel too special!). Pre-trip concerns we had about the triple room 17 were soon forgotten as the room, although compact, was perfectly adequate for three 6' plus adults with plenty of storage space and ensuite with great shower. The chalet is in a superb location with easy walking access to the lake, ski/mountain bike lifts and all activities. I cannot fault the service from Alpine Elements from the unexpected pre-trip phone call to the final transfer back to the airport. All went smoothly and without a hitch. Emma and Bex from Alpine Elements were superb and helped arranging lift passes and other bookings as well as arranging a very enjoyable bowling night, quiz night and we even enjoyed a couple of 'chalet' beach volley ball games. The only negative I can find is the lack of Wifi in the Chalet although this wasn't a real problem and a 2 minute walk to a local bar in the evening that did have Wifi resolved this! If you are going specifically for the mountain biking I would definitely recommend upgrading to a full suspension bike as the trails are VERY demanding and quite technical. The Specialized Hardtails we were given (expertly maintained by Tom!) were almost new and just about adequate but we often felt we were pretty much on the limit! Overall though, a fantastic trip. Well done Alpine Elements and we hope to return again soon!
