Really, really good! The food was excellent; we had half board with breakfast, afternoon tea and a 3 course dinner. The location is perfect, it took us a five minute walk to get to the lifts and the town as well. Facilities were really good. I would definitely recommend staying here! + more

The chalet hotel is really nice. I hadn’t done the sort of holiday before where everything’s so sociable – they sat you in different places for dinner each evening to mix people up and get everyone talking. Actually quite a few people mentioned that it was so noisy in the dining hall that it got to the point... + more

My room was lovely, with the beds made every day. The spa and pool were very nice and the staff were friendly. In terms of the location, I didn’t find it a problem having to walk / get the bus to the slopes. I’d give it a 4 or 5 out of 5 if I hadn’t lost the last 2 days out there to food poisoning. + more

I visited the chalet hotel in Dec and had a great time. The pool facilities were especially great with a large heated pool, water fountains and hot tubs! The food was really great and we always had a choice (including wines). The staff were also excellent and always did their best to help (my friend was gluten ... + more

Espace Killy ski area Fantastic après ski High altitude skiing

Tignes is somewhere you can ski longer, higher and further than most other resorts in the Alps. Owing its snow-reliability to the Grande Motte glacier, the local ski area is joined with Val d’Isere’s to form the mammoth Espace Killy - intermediates will have a whale of a time here. Choose between 5 different villages, whether your priority is convenience, cosiness or cheap accommodation. Tignes also has one of the most famous New Year parties in the Alps.

Tignes ski resort (pronounce it 'Teens') is one half of the stunning Espace Killy, one of the biggest linked ski areas in France. Because of its high-altitude terrain and access to the Grande Motte glacier, the resort is open both earlier and later in the season than many others and often the lifts are running for short periods of summer skiing. Predominantly purpose built, the resort itself is divided into 5 villages, each different in its own way but all well linked by lifts and bus services. The main area...
With varied pistes at a high altitude, the ski area has impressive powdered terrain for skiers and boarders alike. Beginners can practice on the nursery slopes at Le Lac and Le Lavachet, where you'll find gentle, quiet runs that are accessible via free beginners' lifts. Le Bollin at Val Claret is another conveniently situated green and Grattalu is a lovely wide blue for those wanting to build confidence. Tignes is incredible if you ski at an intermediate level, with miles of powdery blue and red runs includi...
While it's said that those who appreciate Tignes do so for the serious skiing over the après ski, this doesn't do justice to the fact that Tignes' 60+ bars/pubs and 4 night clubs provide some of the best nightlife in the Alps. All villages have their fair share of places to eat and drink, and with a shuttle bus service running 24 hours, you can enjoy your evening without worrying about the journey back. Jam bar is small but with a great atmosphere and Loop bar pretty much offers it all: with live sport, world c...

"Good all round"

Roddy Campbell, Edinburgh
5/ out of 5
We had a fantastic week and very much enjoyed our stay in Chalet hotel L'Ecrin. All the staff were very friendly and seemed happy. There was a good mix of people staying there, from older couples to families with kids and young people who have the bar etc – everyone seemed to be having a good time. My room was perfect and the food was great, with nice variety (it was a little bit of a mix, some French things and a little bit of British). There was always more than enough and they’d bring you more from the kitchen if you asked for it.

"There wasn’t anything to fault"

Mr. Bonthrone
5/ out of 5
We had a great time, this is a really good chalet and I don’t really have any downsides. The rooms were a good standard and good quality – we had an adjoining double for us and our kids and it was fantastic, with a nice balcony. The bedrooms and bathrooms were kept nice and clean and the housekeeping was very attentive. Food was second to none, couldn’t fault it! The choices of meals were great, there wasn’t a meal we didn’t like the sound of. The younger kid’s meals looked nice too. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. The position of the chalet hotel is good as we could come out of the boot room straight onto the access road that brings you to the slopes. Directly opposite, 40 metres away, is where the shuttle bus pick up point is, and the drop off point was opposite that. You’re on the slopes within 5 minutes. All in all, a great week!

"Excellent for our family"

Excellent! I don’t think there’s anything I could fault, it met all of our expectations. The kids were looked after well, the staff were good and the food was great. Bedrooms are a little small but that didn’t bother us. We used the pool all the time. Location was a bit of a bind at first when it came to reaching the slopes, but we soon found our way around – the walk takes about ten minutes.

"Second stay @ L'Ecrin!"

5 star! It’s brilliant and I like everything about it, I stayed here last year through SNO as well, and recommend this place all the time. For anyone who skis it’s the place to go. You couldn’t knock the staff one little bit, especially the manager and catering manager. Everything is very clean – some people say it’s getting a bit worn but it’s fine. The food they serve is really good, not stingy at all, and if you want anything in particular they just deal with it to accommodate you. When we first stayed here we were warned about it being away from the lift. However there’s a brilliant tow across the car park which makes it virtually ski in, ski out.

"Really good!!"

Really, really good! The food was excellent; we had half board with breakfast, afternoon tea and a 3 course dinner. The location is perfect, it took us a five minute walk to get to the lifts and the town as well. Facilities were really good. I would definitely recommend staying here!

"Really good chalet hotel, very sociable"

Rebecca Thomas, Derby
4/ out of 5
The chalet hotel is really nice. I hadn’t done the sort of holiday before where everything’s so sociable – they sat you in different places for dinner each evening to mix people up and get everyone talking. Actually quite a few people mentioned that it was so noisy in the dining hall that it got to the point where you could barely hear what anyone was saying… The food was really good with a decent amount of choice – by dessert I was always full! I thought the afternoon tea was really good, we had cakes, biscuits, salmon on crackers, sandwiches... There was probably too much of it as it didn’t all get eaten most days, which isn’t a complaint as such, but it would have been a shame if it was going to waste. On the night out, the hotel booked us into a restaurant somewhere quite high up in the town. It ended up snowing so what we did instead was book into a restaurant connected to the chalet hotel (possibly called Chalet Bouvier?) where some of the other guests were eating. The chef had previously worked in a Michelin starred restaurant and the food was amazing. It was also the easiest restaurant to get to by far, so I’m glad we ate here instead and would recommend that others do too! Our twin room was a good size, no problems with it at all. I liked having a gym and a pool – there were a few issues with the Jacuzzi not working which my dad was disappointed about but I prefer the sauna anyway! The location is probably the best you can get without being able to ski to the door and the local buses were really regular.

My room was lovely, with the beds made every day. The spa and pool were very nice and the staff were friendly. In terms of the location, I didn’t find it a problem having to walk / get the bus to the slopes. I’d give it a 4 or 5 out of 5 if I hadn’t lost the last 2 days out there to food poisoning.

"A wonderful chalet in a great location in Tignes"

Calvin
5/ out of 5
I visited the chalet hotel in Dec and had a great time. The pool facilities were especially great with a large heated pool, water fountains and hot tubs! The food was really great and we always had a choice (including wines). The staff were also excellent and always did their best to help (my friend was gluten free and forgot to let them know before hand, but they put together last minute special meals for her for all 3 courses!). The location is also great, very close to the slopes. The feel of the chalet hotel was very homely. Would certainly go back.
