        Tignes Details

        Famous for its ski resort, Tignes is a popular tourist stop for winter sports enthusiasts. It sits near the Val D’Isere in the Savoie region of France and contains five villages within its borders. Three of the villages are at an altitude of 2100 meters: Le Lavachet, Tignes le Lac, and Val Claret. The village of Tignes Les Boisses is lower in the valley, above the dam, while Tignes-les-Brevieres is the lowest, below the dam. Only Les Brevieres is a historic village; the others were created when the dam and the ski resort were built.Today, all five of the villages are part of the ski resort of Tignes, which is popular year round. The modern ‘barrage de Tignes,’ or dam, is an interesting hydroelectric marvel. For a natural wonder, visitors can see the Grand Motte glacier. It is the presence of the glacier that keeps the area cold enough for year round skiing. But in the warmest months, the glacier does recede somewhat, and closes to visitors. You can find a great range of both discount hotels and cheap hotels right here at for the duration of your stay.
