Tignes Villages

Tignes is divided into several different areas linked by an efficient free bus system.

Our apartment is situated in Tignes Val Claret (2300m) which is the highest part of the resort and in our opinion by far the best area of Tignes to be in.  It is in close proximity to the many lifts which serve the whole of the 'Espace Killy' area. Within a few minutes skiing (or walking if you really want to!) from our apartment  you can access -

Funiculaire/ chair lifts up to the Grande Motte glacier
Tichot lift with liaisons to all the lower Tignes areas
Tufs lift to the top of the Toviere ( refurbished 2008 - now 6 person)
Bollin lift to nursery areas and Marmottons and
Fresse lift to access the big ski bowl towards Val D'Isere.

Tignes Val Claret also has 2 supermarkets, several ski schools, ski shops, restaurants, bars, clubs and other shops of all kinds.

Tignes Le Lac (2100m) is the next area down the mountain across the other side of the lake which is a feature of Tignes (frozen in winter). The Swimming Pool can be found here along with more shops and restaurants.  It is in close proximity to Les Almes and Le Lavachet which are both mainly made up of Apartments and hotels

Tignes Les Boisses (1850m) is quite a lot lower down, level with the dam and under the tree line.  There are big building works here at present and the lifts are due to be updated in the next few years.

Tignes les Brevieres (1550m) is the lowest station of the resort.  If you can manage a black run the La Sache run down to Breveires is not to be missed!
