Taking the family away for a ski break in Europe makes for a wonderful holiday, but deciding what resort to base yourself in can be tricky, and then you have to decide what type of accommodation suits you best – hotel, apartment or catered chalet. Tignes, in France, takes care of all that! It’s a resort that stands out above most others as a place that is perfect for families (as well as other groups) and it genuinely has something for everyone, both on the slopes and off. |
If you're looking for a quality catered chalet, Tignes boasts some exceptional offerings, but the resort has even more than that going for it. World class skiing, great weather and amazing facilities are all on show here, and every age group will find something to enjoy for a memorable holiday.
Here are four quick facts to showcase the best of this outstanding resort.
It’s Made Up of Five Villages
The five villages are each built at different altitudes, but they are all connected via ski lift, which makes exploring the region an enjoyable and quite extensive task. The character of each village is completely different so, depending on your taste and requirements, you’ll need to choose carefully where to book your catered chalet. Tignes is not only very beautiful, but also extremely diverse so it pays to do a little research.
It’s Part of Espace Killy
Espace Killy is a large ski area with over 300 km of slopes for everyone from beginners to avid adventurers to enjoy. Tignes is part of this region and is linked with Val d’Isere and a number of other smaller resorts. As ski areas go it’s great for families, as there’s a range of runs for all abilities, and the location of Espace Killy means that Tignes is also easily accessible from a number of large French cities, including Lyon.
It Has Great Nightlife/Apres Ski
The nightlife here is truly second to none. Throughout the five villages there’s a fantastic range of bars and restaurants from which to choose – catering for different tastes and food styles as well as different budgets. There are relaxed venues perfect for families with young children, as well as more up-market spots for a taste of refined Alpine cuisine. The apres-ski options are great for families with older children who can all go out to a bar together to relax after a hard day on the slopes.
It Has Superb Catered Chalets
When you’re booking a catered chalet, Tignes offers two very important things: great quality and great location. These two characteristics are consistent and everything else will be up to your individual needs and wants. Whether you’re looking for something right in the heart of the action, a few metres from a lift, or something remote where you can enjoy tranquil mountain mornings, you’re sure to find a place here to fall in love with.
More than Just a Resort
When you consider the quality of the skiing, the apres-ski and your catered chalet, Tignes is truly a resort that won’t be outdone. There’s every chance that a visit here will not be your last and it’s not uncommon to see families opt to return year after year. For all the reasons above, and so many more, it’s really not hard to see why this wonderful resort is at the top of everyone’s winter holiday list.
