A view from apartment 4, Roches Rouges
About the Owners

Nice to meet you...

Matt and Rachel Thomas are serial travellers and were a regular feature of the Tignes scene in seasons past. Originally intending to do just one season as a sort of extended honeymoon, they felt so at home living in Tignes, they dived in with all four feet and bought Apartment 4.


Since then they both set about upgrading the apartment from the rather brown, 70s pad they bought, to the light and airy apartment you now see on the website.

In December 2007, they took 10 week old Harry to France to experience his first ski season. He loved it! Since then in November 2009 Charlotte's been added to the clan and they've been fully indoctrinated into mountain life, skiing with Ultimate in the winters, enjoying the many activities and facilities in the summers (The Parcours Aventure in Val d'Isere is a real favourite but, shhh, don't tell anyone in Tignes!) .

They've now done the grown up thing and have based themselves back in the UK for a while.

But their loss is your gain - the apartment hasn't really been a self-catering flat, it's more a family home, and it's hoped you'll feel a sense of that if you choose to stay.

Matt (and friend)

Matt's alter-ego Jonny can still be found dispensing advice on Tripadvisor (he was appointed Tignes Destination Expert) and Facebook, and the family Thomas still spend as much time as they can in the Alps, so maybe you'll bump into them. Otherwise, if you're frequenting the bars and restaurants, tell 'em Matt and Rachel sent you...
