    Make a holiday rental apartment or chalet in Tignes, France your home away from home

    Tignes has become one of Europe’s leading skiing and snowboarding resorts. Set high in the French Alps, Tignes and neighbouring Val d’Isere are the only ‘snow-sure resorts’ in France, meaning that whenever you would like to take a holiday or skiing weekend, Tignes is sure to satisfy. Despite the excellent facilities and extensive options, Tignes is not only aimed at experienced skiers. There are phenomenal facilities for beginners too, including 7 ski schools, so family holidays to Tignes or mixed ability groups hoping to take a Tignes chalet are in luck. The vast majority of accommodation in Tignes is in the form of private, self catering chalets and apartment as opposed to hotels.

    Things to do on holiday in Tignes, France

    Two things spring to mind when you mention Tignes; snowboarding and skiing, but there are also a huge number of alternative activities to try.

    Tignes and Val d’Isere share the huge skiing area know as L’Espace Killy, which is especially known for its magnificent off piste, made easily accessible by a maze of lifts. Tignes is also known as a haven for snowboarding. L’Espace Killy is home to a half pipe, boardercross course and some extensive freeriding. If you are looking to rent a Tignes chalet for skiing, don’t worry, the resort is still primarily a ski resort, and there are over 190km of piste and plenty of ski rentals in Tignes.

    Alternatively, away from the piste, there are a huge amount of things to do if you don’t feel like skiing or snowboarding. You can try your hand at ice driving, hang gliding, skidoo driving, dog sledding, ice skating, paracending, ice climbing and ice diving, below the frozen lake surface.

    Holiday rental accommodation in Tignes does not get a rest during the summer either. The Tignes glacier opens for skiing and snowboarding from the 23rd June until the 2nd September, meaning that you could take a chalet in Tignes and ski all year round! There is also a large snow park which acts as a liaison point.

    In summer, the lake unfreezes too, allowing sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, and fishing, and on the shore, horse riding and play on Europe’s highest golf course thrive. Other alternatives for entertainment when you take a holiday rental chalet in Tignes include white water rafting, paragliding, 4x4 driving, trail biking, mountain biking, climbing, hiking and canyoning, so this really is a year round activity sports haven.
