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.

Places to holiday in Tignes, France

Val d’Isere is Tignes neighbouring resort, sharing the L’Espace Killy ski area. Val d’Isere has a reputation as a very smart, exclusive resort, with excellent nightlife running long into the night and a range of magnificent restaurants to choose from. It also has many great skiing facilities and some luxury ski chalets and apartments to rent.

Weather in Tignes, France

Being at such high altitude, average temperatures in Tignes are of course low. Having said this, temperatures are far milder than those found in the American ski resorts, and summers are particularly mild, making skiing on Tignes glacier a particularly pleasant experience.

Great apartment, fabulous resort, highly recommended

5 of 5
We are a family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers, and we found the apartment had everything we needed. It is spacious, lovely and warm, and very well equipped. We especially liked the English channels on the TV, the WIFI, the very comfortable beds, the constant hot water and the stunning views out of every window. The kitchen has everything you need, and the apartment was spotlessly clean on our arrival. Check-in and check-out was very easy, and Gary promptly answered any questions we had. It was reassuring to know that there was a manager in Tignes should we need to contact someone, and we were telephoned a week before our departure to ask how we would like the beds made up, and to find out if we had any questions. We really liked the location of the apartment. It is a very short walk to the extremely well-stocked supermarket, a bakery and ski-hire shops. It is about a five minute walk to the nearest chair lift, and from there you can ski the short distance to the other lifts in Val Claret. The apartment was very quiet at night. Tignes is fantastic. A huge skiing area, and even after a week of skiing all day every day, we never managed to ski all the runs. Despite going late in the season, there was still lots of snow around and we were blessed with a gloriously sunny week. There is something for everyone, including some great snow parks, lots of mountain restaurants and free shuttle buses should you need them. We never had to queue for lifts. In short, a fantastic resort, and a fabulous apartment. Thank you Gary and we would love to return in the future.
