Overview - chalet description - Chalet Ushuaia description

Sleeps 12 guests

This traditional chalet is conveniently located with the lifts, slopes and après-ski amenities of Tignes all within easy reach and has excellent facilities including a sauna and a new hot tub.

A 2 minute walk brings you to a piste from where you can ski down the last few yards to the Palafour lift, and return at the end of the day to the same point. Alternatively a 3 minute walk will take you to the high-speed Chaudannes and Pacquis chairlifts, one for each side of the ski area. The living/dining area has a superb picture window offering day and night views of the resort, with a south-facing balcony as a perfect sun trap on which to enjoy afternoon tea after a hard day on the slopes. The chalet also has a sauna and hot tub in which to relax, before enjoying our 4 course evening meals and planning the next day’s adventure.

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 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, currently being rebra...
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...

"Let down by the hot tub not working"

Fiona, Aberdeen
2/ out of 5
We had a fantastic holiday overall but there were a few disappointments with the chalet. The hot tub had been broken the week before so we couldn’t use it, and we’d paid a premium for that chalet because it had a hot tub. Also the room we were staying in was pretty tiny, there was just enough room to get around the bed. Becca the chalet girl was really good and we were very happy with the service we received. The location was pretty central and great for the slopes, ski school and ski hire shop. The hot tub issue would prevent me going back, had it been working the week would have been a lot better!
