The towering peaks around Tignes help create wonderful winter sports conditions and a long snow-sure season that even includes some summer skiing.

Dive into Tignes for a catered or self-catered luxury ski holiday with our portfolio of the best properties in this superb French Alps ski resort.
Tignes has a pretty sister resort in world-famous Val d'Isère. Val has more heritage, while Tignes has been purpose built to make the most of the Savoyard Alps in the Vanoise National Park. Known until recently as Espace Killy in honor of the area’s most famous ski champion Jean-Claude Killy, the slopes around Tignes are still world-class, with Olympic downhill courses among the 300km of runs.
You don’t need to be a daredevil to enjoy a holiday in Tignes though, there’s a great variety of skiing to be found in the 3,656m up to the Motte Glacier, with around 20% of Tignes own slopes graded as suitable for beginners, 30% perfect for intermediates, and around half of them demanding, including some world famous powder skiing.
There are great free-style and boarding parks in the ski area. The town is a modern ski resort, really a collection of small communities rather than a single village, with Le Lac the highest at 2,100m, and Tignes Les Brévières – valued for its quietness and privacy – set at 1,500m. There are good local transport links, including 24h free buses between Val Claret, Le Lac, Lavachet and Les Brévières, and many Finest Holidays catered ski chalets come with chauffeur-driven transport. Val d'Isère, an historic mountain community, is also close at hand.
Tignes may not have the heritage buildings of Val, but it has everything that a luxury ski clientele might demand, and has been somewhat beautified in recent years. The ski resort has one of the world’s greatest ski areas and is a beautiful location all year round. Tignes offers a good nightlife and nice après-ski bars, some are ideally located close to the pistes.
The Michelin-starred La Table de l’Ours, and the two star L'Atelier d'Edmond are over in Val, but Tignes also has an awarded restaurant in the shape of Ursus, and lots of excellent quality dining. Le Panoramic enjoys a perfect perch at 3,032m and an equally high-level reputation.
The Couloir bar is lively, and Grizzly’s is cozy and sophisticated. A purpose built resort means lots of great settings for events, and Tignes has a fine selection of events throughout the ski season and well into the summer.
