This package holiday to Chalet Violetta in Tignes, France departs Tuesday 13th December 2016, 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. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

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...

"Stunning new chalet."

Sam T, Buckinghamshire
4/ out of 5
The chalet itself was lovely, it’s obviously new and was spacious and comfortable. I really can’t fault the accommodation, the only issue was more to do with the chalet hosts. If you asked for something (e.g. we asked for pillowcases as some pillows didn’t have them) it didn’t necessarily happen. Someone had obviously cut their hand when they were setting the chalet up, so there was blood on the bedding – we told them about it and they were naturally embarrassed, but it was quite evident and I don’t know how they missed it when preparing the room. Things like emptied beer bottles were just moved around rather than being put away (by the end of the week the balcony looked like we’d had a big party as there were so many bottles from the week). In chalets I’ve stayed in previously, they’ve come in every morning and cleared up. Our host was a lovely girl, she just seemed to find everything hard work and never seemed very happy with her job when we spoke to her, maybe because she’d done a few seasons before she’d just become a bit comfortable. She was a good cook and the food was good, which goes to show she had chalet experience (other people who had newbie hosts were saying their food was burned or undercooked, but ours was good). All of it was very rich, with every meal being a full on five courses of canapés etc., churned out one course after another. It might be a good idea not to have so much rich food every night, we were craving a pizza at one point! In terms of the location, it would have been good for someone to show us how we could ski out as it wasn’t until we were on the coach home that we found out we could have skied to a slope from the door. We were quite happy doing the trek in the week, but skiing would have been even better – maybe if the chalet host walked us there and pointed out the route it would have been better. It would have also helped if they maybe walked us into town the quickest route.

The chalet worked really well and is in a good location. You can pretty much ski in and ski out which is perfect – 2 minutes from the slopes, from the ski hire, from the shops, from the pubs… We chose a specific room that cost very slightly more because it had a balcony and Jacuzzi bath. There was a shared balcony which was fine but we didn’t have the Jacuzzi bath which was disappointing when we’d paid extra. The chalet hosts were great! Meals were good, we had a bit of variety including some traditional dishes so it was a nice balance. It wasn’t stodgy and came with nice salads etc.
