Tignes is a compact, purpose built ski resort with a reputation for excellent snow coverage and spectacular views of the surrounding alps. The views are one of the reasons Tignes is popular in summer as well as winter, and many of the best places to stay in Tignes are open for the hiking, biking and climbing season as well as the ski season.
Tignes even has a summer skiing season between late June and early August, when the Grand Motte glacier is opened. So it can be quite busy and if you’re looking for a bit of peace and quiet then the best places to stay in Tignes are probably those just out of town, where you get the views more to yourself.
The village has been built on a beautiful mountain plateau and you can get to the slopes easily from the village level ski lifts, but Tignes is also part of the Espace Killy ski area, so you can use your pass to ski around Val d’Isère and Val-Claret as well - around 300kms worth of piste and around 80 lifts.
Tignes isn’t the place to come for après-ski, but there are numerous bars and restaurants, most of them are in Tignes Le Lac. Lower down the mountain is Le Lavachet, which is slightly cheaper and linked to the lifts by a free bus. Then lower down the mountain are Tignes Les Boisses and Tignes Les Brévières, which are linked to the main ski area by their own lifts.
The Best Places to Stay in Tignes
- Le Taos is a luxurious, 54 room hotel with a surprisingly New Mexican look, considering it’s in the heart of the French Alps. Suites and rooms are cosy, with Santa Fe rugs and American artwork. But more importantly there’s excellent skiing right on the doorstep. The views are pretty spectacular as well.
- Chalet Colinn is in an exceptionally beautiful spot, just down the hill from Val d’Isère or across the lake from Tignes. There are just five rooms, so this is an ideal property to book out, or a private place to bring someone special.
