Tignes is one of the most snow sure resorts in the Alpes offering glacier skiing all year round and access to the famous Espace Killy ski area in the winter. Linked with Val d’Isere, the resort offers exceptional skiing for all abilities and the luxury chalets and hotels we work with offer easy access to the slopes.
Chalets in France
Tignes, located in the Tarentaise Valley, which is in the Rhône-Alpes region of south-eastern France, is one of the most snow-sure of all the ski resorts in France. At 2,100 metres above sea level it boasts wonderfully picturesque and snow-covered pistes, even at times when other resorts are only able to offer skiers sludgy runs. Together with the nearby resort of Val d’Isère, the two popular resorts form the ‘Tignes-Val d'Isere’ ski area.
Tignes is not one single village, but five villages – Val Claret, Tignes le Lac, Le Lavachet, Tignes Les Boisses and Tignes-les-Brévières. The first three are at an altitude of 2,100 metres, while the latter two are located further down the valley. The villages are similar in many regards, but each village possesses its own unique charm, with each worthy of visiting whilst in Tignes if only to stop in for something warm, or something cold, to drink whilst passing by.
There are some superb après ski bars to be found in Tignes, including our pick, la Folie Douce in Val-d’Isère, which is a pumping party venue, as well as a number of superb restaurants. We recommend La Ferme des 3 Capucines in Le Lavachet.
