A family ski holiday sounds like a lot of work (and it can be), but if you find the right resort, it could be the trip of a lifetime for you and your kids. The perfect family resort will offer excellent childcare, equipment rental, great ski schools and of course, the best catered ski chalets – Tignes provides all of this and more. There are five distinct villages to choose from, but Le Lac is the best for groups with children as it’s based at the heart of the resort and offers a great choice of accommodation, restaurants and activities. |
Whether you’re planning an Easter break, Christmas escape or summer holiday, this Alpine destination has something for everyone, all year round. Here are just a few reasons why Tignes should be on your getaway wish list.
Sensational Ski Schools
Skiing is a fantastic sport to get involved in and the earlier you start the better – which makes it a great activity for kids. There are a number of great schools and programmes that offer classes from age three and above. Les Marmottons runs a bespoke nursery complete with a mini snow park. The largest programme is offered by Ecole de Ski France, which has a few different snow gardens that are perfect for kids. You’ll be able to find classes taught in both French and English, depending on your preference.
In order to ensure your trip is as hassle-free as possible, you’ll want to be certain that the accommodation meets all your needs. Luckily, when it comes to finding affordable catered ski chalets, Tignes is the best place to be. Not only are they reasonably priced, but many lodgings are designed with families in mind and offer easy access to the slopes. The ski-in/ski-out cabins mean that you don’t need to trek to and from home to the runs and there’s no need for extra travel costs. All family-friendly accommodation in Le Lac village is conveniently located close to the nursery slopes and other winter activities.
If you enjoy having the option to cook for yourself, or would like the full service of a private chef, opt for one of the self-catered and fully-catered ski chalets. Tignes is full of wonderful restaurants that offer a great selection of cuisines, but if you have fussy eaters, dining in is sometimes the preferred option. If you’ve chosen to have your own cook, you’ll be able to inform them of any dietary requirements before you arrive, so there’s no need to spend time stressing about hunting down your little one’s favourite yoghurt.
In this winter wonderland resort there’s no chance of anyone getting bored. Children usually spend about half a day skiing, and after lunch you’ll find plenty of other fun activities to keep them entertained. Choose from tobogganing, sledging, ice skating, tennis, trampolining, bowling and more – there really is something for everyone! Between the excellent ski schools and the family-focused catered ski chalets, Tignes is the perfect destination for a child-friendly holiday. So get ready to hit the slopes and make memories that you’ll cherish forever.
