Luxury Ski Chalets Tignes
The towering peaks around Tignes help create wonderful winter sports conditions and a long, long snow-sure season that even includes some summer skiing. Finest Holidays can put you at the foot of these pistes in superb quality luxury ski chalets. The glacier resort of 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 course 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 3,842m 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 Val Claret 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 24 hour free buses between Val Claret, Le Lac, Lavachet and Les Brevieres.
Tignes has everything that a luxury ski clientele might demand, and has been somewhat beautified in recent years. 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. Tignes offers a good nightlife and nice apres-ski bars, some are ideally located close to the pistes.
