Tignes is known worldwide for being a hotspot for a snow-capped holiday. If you're into winter sports, you'll absolutely love it here.
It's so high up, the ski resort is open all year round, so book your holiday rental in Tignes for a fantastic experience whatever the time of year.
Tignes sits in the Tarentaise Valley, nestled amongst the Rhone-Alpes. It's made up of five villages and together with Val d'Isere forms the challenging Espace Killy ski area.
Since being used as a venue for the 1992 Winter Olympics, it's become a go-to spot for freestyle skiing. Make sure to try it during your stay!
What to Do
But don't worry if you’re here for more than winter sports - there's plenty of other things to do too. Go mountain biking through the hills, water rafting or parasailing/paragliding through the trees.
If you fancy a day indoors, visit Le Lagon, a swimming pool and spa with waterslides to keep the kids entertained.

Le Palafour - Tignes Espace Killy
A perfectly positioned little gem!
A perfect apartment for a family of four. The location was perfect! Two mins walk from bus transfers and parking, smack bang between the two main lifts with ski school right outside if you want it. A fantastic swimming pool that the children loved with a great slide. Lots of restaurants, but not noisy at all. The apartment itself was perfectly formed. Lots of storage, very comfy beds and modern decor. Would definitely book again thank you …
Schuss - 301
Well appointed and maintained apartment of a good size. Close to all amenities and Tignes was fantastic providing so much many free activities with the 'My Tignes Open' card as well as some hairy downhill mountain biking! Gary, the owner was really helpful as were the staff overseeing the apartment. I would wholly recommend this accommodation and the lovely, welcoming resort of Tignes. …
