Welcome to


At a location of 2300m Tignes is, along with Val Thorens, one of France’s two go-to resorts for those looking for guaranteed snow. The main season starts in November and often goes on ‘til May although you can ski on La Grande Motte glacier twelve months per year! Although it has long been considered an intermediate’s paradise, Tignes has some serious terrain for hardcore skiers & riders and now host international free-ride events and the world’s largest snowpark!

The Ski Company offers a range of ski-in/ ski-out apartments across all three of Tignes' popular villages -

TIGNES LE LAC - The oldest of the Tignes villages, but a bustling village nonetheless in an enviable slopeside location. It's a popular place to stay with plenty to offer on the restaurant, bar and cafe front.

TIGNES VAL CLARET - Of all the Tignes villages, Val Claret is probably best known for it's nightlife. It's access to the slopes along with its array of dining options make it a popular choice for a Tignes holiday, it's certainly a hive of activity throughout the winter months.

TIGNES 1800 - A little further down the mountain, and the quietest of our Tignes offerings, Tignes 1800 has enjoyed the fruits of a makeover on a huge scale. With its easy access to the lifts and the whole of the Tignes ski area still so accessible it is fast becoming just as popular as its big sisters/brothers, but perhaps without quite the price tag (for now!)

Flying - There are a few options when it comes to your destination airport; but Geneva is the recommended option because of greater flexibility for transfers and car hire to take you onto Tignes. The transfer is 223 kms and takes around 2 hours 50 minutes.

Train - The Eurostar glides through France directly from London St Pancras to Bourg-Saint-Maurice in a little over seven-and-a-half hours and, from there, it’s 30km on to Tignes with taxi and transfer options available.

Driving - Drivers will find the roads through France faster and emptier than those in the UK and this is largely down to them being toll roads…so there is a price to pay! London to Tignes takes around 12 hours 30 minutes without stops and this includes the tunnel crossing.


For those driving in, you might want to stop in Albertville or Bourg St Maurice to stock up at one of the cheaper supermarkets on the way up the mountain, alternatively, there are a number of local supermarkets in resort with long opening hours.

Choice is the name of the game when it comes to restaurants in Tignes with all budgets and tastes catered for. There are the traditional Savoyard options along with popular eateries like Daffy's cafe in Val Claret if you fancy something like a Tex-Mex option. If you are visiting in peak weeks and there is somewhere particular you would like to try, it is worth booking ahead as some of the more popular restaurants can get booked up.


The Tignespace Complex in Le Lac provides a wealth of activities for those not spending the day skiing. There is a climbing wall, bouldering wall and space to rent for indoor football, badminton, tennis, squash and two competition-standard trampolines!

Similarly, you can also head to the Lagon swimming pool which has floor-to-ceiling windows offering spectacular views of the mountains. Le Lagon also has its own wellness area with Jacuzzis, saunas and steam rooms.

For families, there is a cinema (in Val Claret) and ten-pin bowling facility (Jacks Bowling) located right next door to Tignespace.
