Our five chalets are all in Tignes Les Brevieres - a charming Alpine village nestled in the trees at a high altitude of 1550 metres. The village is well linked with the other villages, and neighbouring Val D’Isere, by a fast and modern lift network.
Situated high in the Tarentaise region of the French Alps, the resort known as Tignes is the collective name given to five villages; Tignes Les Brevieres, Tignes 1800, Tignes Le Lavachet, Tignes Le Lac and Tignes Val Claret.
TIGNES LES BREVIERES
Located at an altitude of 1550m, the resort has access to some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the world class Tignes and Val D'Isere ski area. This picturesque French village resort is great for skiers and snowboarders of all abilities.
Tignes Les Brevieres is a charming village with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. In the heart of the village are cafes, bars, restaurants, food store, bakery, newsagent, post office, cash machine, tourist office, ski school, ski shops, a weekly market and a spa with jacuzzi, massages & treatments. Other activities in Tignes include ice driving, horse riding, husky sledding, paragliding, snow mobiling, swimming and ice skating.
Tignes Les Brevieres is a high altitude resort and has an excellent snow record. Thanks to it’s altitude and the aspect of it’s slopes, during the 14 years we have been operating in Tignes it has always been possible to ski from and back to the village all winter (mid Dec to last week of April).
A brand new, fast 8 person bubble lift (Brevieres Telecabine, new in 2018) whisks you to the Boisses Telecabine in Tignes 1800 linking with two chairlifts, both giving access to Tignes Le Lac and Tignes Le Lavachet via a blue slope (Rhododendron then Petit Col) or a red slope (Bluets). The new Brevieres Telecabine connects the village with Tignes 1800 and it’s beginner slope with covered magic carpet.
To return to Tignes Les Brevieres from Tignes 2100, one fast chairlift gives access via a choice of one blue slope, two red slopes or a black slope – something for everyone! Or if you are all skied out then you can take free bus and free bubble lift down.
APRES SKI TIGNES LES BREVIERES
Tignes Les Brevieres has a lively and varied apres ski scene. Finish your skiing day with a beer or vin chaud at La Bouida at the foot of the slopes. For live football and rugby head to The Boot Room. For a game of pool head to the French Bar Le Geant or for a relaxed drink head to the Overground Bar. If you want to party, the British run Le Moose or Bootroom both stay open late. Tignes Les Brevieres has five restaurants, all serving local specialities such as Raclettes, Pierrade and Fondues, plus favourites such as pizza or steak. Our favourite restaurant is L’Armailly, near the foot of the slopes.
LIFT & BUS LINKS TIGNES LES BREVIERES
Tignes Les Brevieres is linked to other Tignes villages during the day by a brand new gondola (Brevieres) then a free resort shuttle bus from Tignes 1800, meaning non skiers can get around independently. During winter 2018/19 this was open 2 evenings per weeks and the lift operators plan to open this for more evenings during winter 2019/20. Tignes Le Lac, Tignes Le Lavachet and Tignes Val Claret (collectively know as Tignes 2100) are purpose built resorts with large apartment buildings with a selection of shops, cafes and restaurants. In Tignes Le Lac there is a swimming centre with two pools.
