We had a great week here, the chalet hotel food was excellent (a good variety of options, and nice breakfasts to fuel us up!).

We liked it and I have to say that the managers were fabulous. They all worked well – good bar staff, wonderful food – I can’t sing their praises highly enough.

Overview - chalet description - Xtra Chalet Le Dome description

The Le Dôme is an ‘Xtra Chalet ’ – giving you all the benefits of one of our welcoming chalets, but enhanced by some added extras, run by our own friendly and helpful staff.See here for more information on our "Xtra Chalets"

Le Dôme is a comfortable and excellent value Xtra Chalet, ideally located in the picturesque village of Tignes 1850.

Access to the skiing couldn’t be easier, as the main high-speed Boisses 8-person gondola, opened just two years ago, takes you straight to a choice of chairlifts - one up to the Aiguille Percée, and the other to the top of the Chaudannes slopes above Tignes Le Lac. Or you can ski the leisurely blue down to Tignes Les Brevières and take the Sache cable-car up from there. You can also ski right back to the Chalet at the end of the day, and for access to the other Tignes villages of Le Lac and Val Claret, the free ski-bus runs until midnight. Le Dôme’s en suite bedrooms all have a cosy, traditional feel and some do vary in size. The bar and lounge area have a log-burner and free Wi-Fi, making this the ideal place to relax, whether over afternoon tea or coffee and a nightcap at the end of the day.

We serve turkey with all the trimmings on Christmas Day, with a pre-dinner glass of Champagne, mince pies and Christmas pudding to follow crackers.

If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

This package holiday to Xtra Chalet Le Dome in Tignes, France departs Saturday 15th December 2018, for a 7 night stay on a "catered chalet" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged.

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...

"Excellent for families"

Mrs D., Stirling
4/ out of 5
The chalet is basic and slightly tired but that wasn’t a problem, we expected 3* and that’s what it is - it more than met our needs. While the accommodation itself was on the tired side, the staff were great and made the holiday. While I’d give the actual chalet a 3/5, the food and ambiance and staff would get a 5/5. The boot room had plenty of space. The rooms were fine, the kids had a big room upstairs. The bathrooms were tiny, you couldn’t fit two people in at the same time as it was literally a shower, tiny sink and toilet, but the hot water worked so they were fine. The rooms are basic but the bar area is great and there’s a wee lounge area with a wood burning stove and places to sit, so we didn’t use the bedroom apart from sleeping in. The food was great and afternoon tea in particular was amazing – homemade soups and savoury nibbles as well as a big cake, biscuits, tea and coffee. They were really good with our kids being slightly older and let them eat with the adults, whereas the younger children ate earlier. It’s perfectly situated – to get out, we literally had to walk 200m for the ski down to the chair lift and we skied right back to the door every night – no having to trail skis about or use buses. The only thing that would have made it any better would be if there were more shops and bars nearby, as the kids like to go out for a wander after skiing. I would definitely recommend saying here, especially if you have kids.

We had a great week here, the chalet hotel food was excellent (a good variety of options, and nice breakfasts to fuel us up!). The staff were all really friendly and accommodating – especially the manager. My room was adequate and I was happy with the space. The town centre was a bus ride away and the slopes were next door!

We liked it and I have to say that the managers were fabulous. They all worked well – good bar staff, wonderful food – I can’t sing their praises highly enough. It’s a 3 star-ish sort of place but we weren’t looking for luxury and the rooms and showers were fine. Our only difficulty was with the location. The chalet is at the end of a cul-de-sac, not in the main Tignes area so you’re dependent on the bus, which stops at 8:30pm (so if you want to go out at night time you end up paying a fortune). The bus was very infrequent in the mornings, so if you missed your bus you could well miss your lessons. We managed to catch it every morning but had to run a few times! Unfortunately the weather wasn’t kind to us and we only had one good day of skiing, but other its location, the chalet hotel was great.
