Up the stairs, which face as you arrive in the hotel, are the remaining 13 ensuite bedrooms, 9 of which have balcony access with beautiful mountain views. The first floor also offers a terrace with a hot tub and a sauna, extremely popular with guests after a busy day on the slopes! Tignes Les Brévières is one of the oldest and prettiest of the five Tignes villages. Just below the iconic Tignes dam, the village sits alongside the river and is filled with traditional old stone farmhouses and chalets, boutique shops, cafés and bars. A huge amount of investment has recently been put into the villages of both Les Brévières and Les Boisses to create even stronger links with the other villages in the resort. The Tignes-Val d’Isère ski area (previously know as the Espace Killy) offers an incredible 300km of high altitude pistes, with two glaciers and 158 ski runs of varying levels. The area is also a hive of activity during the summer months too offering mountain biking, lake activities and summer skiing on the glacier! Tignes is easily accessible by transfer form Geneva/Lyon/Grenoble/Chambéry airports, or from the nearby Eurostar station in the valley town of Bourg St Maurice.
Tignes-Val d'Isère Ski Area
The legendary ski area of Espace Killy has over 300kms of marked piste and endless off-piste options – some of the most varied and exciting skiing you can find! The ski area links the two resorts of Val d’Isere and Tignes.
Val d’Isere sits at approximately 1800 metres and is a truly modern alpine village. The pretty old town of snow filled streets and Savoyard stone buildings is home to the original village church built in 1664. The resort centre is lively and vibrant, with shops, restaurants and bars to suit any budget and taste, lining the wide, spacious main-street.
Every season, during summer and winter, Val d’Isere hosts all sorts of events – from Savoyard festivals or fayres show-casing local produce such as cheeses, cured meats or lace. International sporting events like the Tour de France and the World Ski Championships often stage an event here. Music festivals are often hosted during the summer and winter 2010 welcomes a stage of the World Snow Polo Masters Series!
The villages of Tignes are a little further down the valley towards Bourg St Maurice. Just like Val d’Isere, the ski area boasts wide, cruisey red runs, snow-parks for those who want to play and show off their tricks and quieter beginner areas where you can find your “skis” and build confidence – and of course immense off-piste itineraries, so much space you are bound to find untracked snow!
The lively resort centre is a real haven for those looking for energetic après-ski and night-life – there are lots of bars, café’s, restaurants and night-clubs to entertain until the early hours. During the day-time there is an equal abundance of activity – the resort is just as regarded as a summer resort as it is a winter snow sports centre. You will find a superb 18-hole golf course, organised activities on the lake, skiing on the glacier, beach volleyball and football and the usual mountain biking, walking and horse-riding.
Tignes Ski Resort
Tignes and Val d’Isere, combined, make up the world renowned ski area of Espace Killy. Tignes itself offers all year round skiing with the Grande Motte glacier, altitude of 3030 metres, being served by a modern funicular. Val d’Isere offers expert off piste skiing on the beautiful Col d’Iseran. The other 2 sectors of the linked area have more gentle runs, perfect for beginners.
Tignes is a purpose built resort. The centre is Le Lac, which was the original village. Recent remodelling work has improved its appearance dramatically. Val Claret is situated 2kms higher and is where you will find the Grande Motte funicular. A lesser known part of Tignes is Le Breviere, which lies at 1550 metres. Situated next to a picturesque lake it has maintained its small alpine village atmosphere.
As well as skiing and snowboarding, Tignes offers numerous other activities, including ice skating, snow shoeing, ice climbing and quad biking. Sports shops, supermarkets and bakers are spread throughout the resort. And there are no shortage of bars and restaurants. Le Lac is the heart of Après Ski drinks whilst the most atmospheric places to eat can be found in Val Claret.
The Eurostar offers a regular service to Bourg Saint Maurice which is at the foot of Tignes, from here a taxi transfer can be arranged. Local Airports include Lyon (approx 140km), Geneva (130km), Chambery (80km) and Grenoble (120km).
